Victory the aim for battle-hardened Blackburn

15 March 2016

Rovers are back on their travels this Tuesday night and boss Paul Lambert insists they'll be going all out to claim three points over Ipswich Town.

The Scot admits performances haven't merited the points they've deserved away from home in recent weeks, but they'll look to put that right at Portman Road this evening.

"I think the performances have justified that we should have had more points and I don't think anyone would have argued if we did," the boss told Rovers PlayerHD.

"So there's a lot of good feeling for us going away from home at this minute in time because we are playing well.

"I always just try and win games, I was brought up as a footballer to always go and try and win. The bigger clubs I played at always expected to win and this is a big club Blackburn and we have to go away on Tuesday night and win.

"That is the way I was brought up, that is my style of playing football, to try and win games."

Tonight's game might be Rovers' tenth in the last four weeks, but Lambert won't be using that as an excuse, insisting that the team are used to the demands of the current hectic schedule.

"It is hard but I think the lads have become used to it, that is the thing of it," he added. "When you play this amount of games you very rarely train all you do is just turn them around, but there's not too many to go.

"It is something that I think they are robust to it, they know they've got to go in these next couple of games even though it is two or three games more than anybody else.

"So the effort that they have put in is huge for us, so they know they've got to go again these next two games."

Rovers fans who haven't yet purchased tickets for tonight's league match with Ipswich Town can pay on the day.

Tickets for the Portman Road clash are now off sale at Ewood Park, but tickets are on sale at the ground on the night - cash only from turnstiles 10 and 11.

But supporters who are planning on making the loung journey to Suffolk should note that matchday prices rise by £2.50. Match day prices are £35 Adults, £25.50 for Seniors (60+), Students (valid NUS card), £24.50 16-19 year-olds, and £12.50 for Juniors aged 15 and under.

Rovers PlayerHD subscribers can listen to full match commentary from 7.30pm.
