Derrick Williams is convinced that Rovers just need that first victory to get their season up and running.

The defender, who joined Rovers on a three-year deal last month, believes that the team have improved with the more game time they've had, but that they need to start picking up the wins to reflect that.

As Rovers prepare to take on Rotherham at Ewood this Saturday, the Irishman knows that a win can help to kick-start their campaign.

"We've got to keep going and keep our heads up and look forward to Saturday knowing that we have to get the three points," the defender told Rovers PlayerHD.

"I think once it comes we'll be fine, it is just getting that first win.

"We have played alright, we know that we are good enough, but it is really just getting that first win.

"A lot of us have only just started playing together but you can see with our performances that we are getting better and better, and once that first win comes we can really kick on.

"At the end of the day it is all about winning, the positive thing is that we are playing half decent and we do look a threat.

"We have to try and stay positive, we know it is a massive game on Saturday and we are all looking forward to it."

Tickets for Saturday's match against Rotherham are on open sale up until the 3pm kick-off priced from £18 for Adults, £12 Concessions and £7 for Juniors aged 17 and under.
