Steady progress so far

After nine games in charge at Ewood Park, boss Paul Lambert believes the team have made steady progress under his stewardship.

But he believes it will take time for the players to fully embrace the way he wants them to play.

Lambert has been pleased with the application and endeavour shown by the squad since taking over and he is confident that in time the results will come.

"We've won three, drawn three, and lost three in a short space of time and without really bringing anybody in," said Lambert.

"It is okay, but it isn't where you want to be as we want to try to get out of the league. But as I've said before, we came in here at a difficult time because of everything that has happened.

"But the lads have given us everything and I can't argue. I know you are going to have ups and downs in a season because they are having to adjust to me and the way I want to play.

"It is not something I'm overly disappointed with as I knew it was going to happen, we just have to go and try and win on Saturday and see what happens then."

Lambert feels that the team have shown glimpses of being able to play the way he wants, but knows it won't all click immediately.

"When we raised the tempo, especially on Tuesday night, we looked as if we were going to go and win the game," he added.

"So it is about getting them to sustain that but that takes time. You are going to have times when things are not going to go you way.

"The lads have done everything we've asked, get on the front foot and go and try and win.

"They've got the basics of it, but we can't do too much because of the amount of games and we've not been here that long and it takes time to adjust to the way we want to play.

"So you won't see the benefit of much until we've had a right good stint at it, but at the minute regarding the effort and the commitment you couldn't ask for any more." 

Rovers are back at Ewood Park this Saturday when they take on Brighton & Hove Albion.
