We have to earn the points

Owen Coyle knows Rovers have to make the most of the small margins to secure three points against Nottingham Forest this Tuesday night.

After Saturday's goalless draw against Ipswich Town, Rovers go into this evening's match against Forest looking to make it four points from the two home outings.

The manager believes his side will have to work hard to earn the victory, but feels it is something that they can achieve.

"When you have let points slip then every game becomes important," said Coyle.

"In the last five games we have taken seven points and with a better performance on Saturday that could have been nine, whilst I would suggest that in the two games before that we were worthy of draws in those games.

"So we know that the margins are very tight, so what we have to do against Nottingham Forest is come out on the right side of the margins, and if we can do that then it is four points from two games, which in the Championship is a fantastic return.

"But we have got to go an earn them, Nottingham Forest are not coming to gift you the three points, we are going to have to work our socks off to go and earn those points.

"I've said to the players that the onus is on them to go and entertain the fans, to get the fans behind them with something to shout about.

"We have to go and show some quality football, get the fans excited and I'm sure it can lead to three points."
