We'll go to the Valley with confidence

22 January 2016

Boss Paul Lambert is anticipating a difficult match on Saturday, but insists Rovers will travel to Charlton in good spirits.

The FA Cup victory over Newport County last Monday has given the side a much-needed boost, and they'll look to take that to the Valley as Rovers bid to get their league campaign back on track.

But whilst the manager has warned to expect a reaction from a struggling Addicks side that have conceded 11 goals in their last two games, he has stressed it is all about how Rovers approach the game.

"It is a little bit more difficult than normal," said Lambert. "With Charlton you don't know what you are going to get at the minute.

"They've conceded 11 and not scored. The new manager has come in and they still got beat 6-0, when normally you get a reaction from the manager but that never seen to happen, but they have known him before.

"But it is about us, if we keep this level and go down there and try and play on the front foot, we'll go and try and win.

"Their confidence at the minute must be pretty low but that is normal if you've lost 11 goals in two games and not scored.

"It will be a hard game, a really tough dangerous game, but we'll go down there with confidence to try and win.

"I'm not going to change, I'm going to go and try and win the games, we've fans going down there and we'll do our best to go and win the match.

"There's certainly an uplight in our feeling because of the win on Monday, and the two new lads coming in will certainly enhance it."
