A big game to look forward

Danny Guthrie can't wait to face Aston Villa this Saturday in what is a crunch game for the football club.

Rovers go into the last home match of the season at Ewood Park needing a victory over the Villans to take their fight for Championship survival to the final day.

The midfielder knows how important it is, but believes that if they approach the game with a positive mindset then they can achieve a positive result.

"It is a massive game but it is one that we are looking forward to," Guthrie told Rovers Player.

"Even though it is a difficult situation it is still one of the big games that you like to play in and the rewards can be massive for us.

"We have to win so we have to go in positive. We got a clean sheet away from home the other day but it is not enough, it was not what we wanted. So we have to win on Saturday, there is no two ways about it.

"It is unfortunate that we find ourselves in this situation but we are being asked to win two games of football, it doesn't look like the biggest mountain in the world."

Guthrie knows that the fans can play a huge role in Saturday's clash and he hopes to see a large blue and white contingent cheering them on.

"It makes a massive difference at times and we might need them," he added.

"If there's 20 minutes to go and we need a goal, or we're 1-0 up and holding on, just hearing that buzz from the crowd can just drive you on that little bit know.

"We've had some great home performances this year so we need a good intensity about our play and a little bit of quality that we lacked on Saturday to score a goal.

"We've just got to stay really solid, we don't have to score in the first ten minutes, I hope there's a hero and I wouldn't mind it to be me."
