Important that we kick on

Paul Lambert wants to see his side kick-on – starting with Saturday's trip to Middlesbrough.

Currently three matches unbeaten, the Rovers boss knows his side must be more consistent if they are to move up the Championship table.

Despite losing their last two fixtures, Boro are flying-high sitting second in the league, with Lambert respectful of the Riverside outfit's form.

"As a group and we have to go there and try and win," said the Scot.

"If we play the way we did against Oxford, then we'll definitely give them a game.

"They're up there on merit and they've invested a lot of money, that's evident. They missed out on the play-offs to go up last year as they were beaten by a very good Norwich side.

"But it is important that we kick on, we're unbeaten in three since Newport, it's important we try and win and build on what we've got at the minute.

"We know where we are in the table and a run of wins catapults you up the table, it's so tight in the middle area.

"We can go there with a lot of confidence to try and win. I think the pressure is on them, they know they have to go up this season."

Supporters who haven't yet purchased tickets for Saturday's match against Middlesbrough can do so on the day at the Riverside Stadium.

Some 500 tickets have so far been sold for, with tickets going off sale at Ewood at 4pm this Friday.

After that tickets will be available - cash only - from the South Stand ticket office adjacent to the away turnstiles at the Riverside from 1.30pm on matchday.

Ticket prices are £32 for Adults, £24 for over 65s and £17 for Under-18s. Call the ticket office for further information on 01254 372000.
