Hoban: A big week for us

14 October 2016

Tommie Hoban is confident that Rovers can put in the performances to claim a healthy haul of points from the three matches this week.

Rovers return to action this Saturday with Ipswich Town the visitors to Ewood Park, followed by another home game on Tuesday night against Nottingham Forest, before ending the week away at Bristol City.

The on-loan defender, who is delighted to be back in action after a frustrating time due to injuries last season, believes that the team have improved performance-wise and now is the time to start picking up more points.

"It is exactly what I wanted coming here," the defender told Rovers PlayerHD.

"I missed pretty much the whole season last year so to be back in the team and playing regular football is brilliant.

"Obviously results haven't been as we would have wanted but I think the performances have definitely improved, and in the last two games we were very unlucky not to have come away with points from them.

"Everyone has been working hard over the last few weeks and we've a big week now with three games so we'll be looking to get as many points as we can.

"It is great to be playing, it is what every footballer wants, but at the same time we want to be winning, it is never nice to be on the losing side. 

"We had a good couple of wins a couple of weeks back so hopefully we can build on them and the results will come."
