Keep that confidence flowing

4 March 2016

Danny Graham is looking forward to experiencing his first East Lancashire derby on Saturday.

The striker, who netted Rovers' winner in the 2-1 victory over Middlesbrough this week, is fully aware of the importance of the Turf Moor clash.

Graham believes the performances that the team have put in in recent weeks against sides at the top of the division should stand them in good stead ahead of the lunchtime kick-off.

"We've played against some strong teams who are at the top end of the table and put in some massive performances, so we need the same again," said Graham.

"We need to keep that mindset, and keep that confidence flowing throughout the squad and go again.

"It is a massive game, we just need to do exactly what we did against Middlesbrough on Tuesday night. I've played in a few derbies over my time so I know what they are about. 

"No matter what, the fans just want to win that game, and hopefully we can do that for them.

"Going to a derby game the atmosphere is a lot better than maybe a normal game. I've played in the Newcastle/Sunderland game which is massive, but I've heard a lot of good things about this one so I'm looking forward to it certainly."

Not fortunate to get a ticket for this weekend's match against Burnley? Then why not do the next best thing and watch the big match in Blues Bar!

Blues will be open from 9.30am on Saturday serving teas, coffee, soft drinks and food, with alcohol being served from 10.00am.

Enjoy a bite to eat with breakfast butties, burgers, chilli and chips all available.

An hour before kick-off until the first goal is scored or the final whistle blows it is £2.00 for a pint of Fosters or John Smiths, and £2.50 for a pint of Kronenbourg or Strongbow.

So come on down to Blues and enjoy the big match atmosphere!
