Mulgrew looking forward to Wolves clash

Charlie Mulgrew is relishing the prospect of facing one of his former clubs this Saturday.

The Scottish international saw his Rovers debut cut short by injury last month, but having recovered from a niggling calf injury with substitute appearances against Nottingham Forest and Bristol City, he is now back to full fitness.

Mulgrew replaced full-back Derrick Williams last weekend after the defender picked up a hamstring strain, so he could be in line for his first start at Ewood against Wolverhampton Wanderers.

"I'm ready for it, I've been working hard to stay fit and I can look forward to the matches now," Mulgrew told Rovers PlayerHD.

"It is good to get minutes under my belt, after an injury it is important that you strengthen and build up your minutes slowly, so it is good to be back on the pitch.

"If my first start does come on Saturday then I'll be looking forward to it, I came here to play games and I was unfortunate to get a niggle early on in my first match but to possibly make my full debut would be great.

"But the most important thing is the team, and whatever benefits the team to get the win and the three points."

Mulgrew spent two seasons with Saturday's opponents as a youngster and believes his spell at Molineux helped him to improve as a player.

"I enjoyed my time down there I learned a lot as I was only young at the time," he added.

"It is something that has always stood wth me and I was thankful for that opportunity and I'm a stronger person for it. It is a team that I've got a connection with and I am looking forward to the match.

"They are all difficult fixtures but we've got to believe in ourselves and look to get the three points.

"Everybody is pushing for the one thing and we just need to go on a wee run now and the important thing is starting Saturday we get the three ponts."
