It is going to be a big occasion

29 April 2017

Tony Mowbray is looking forward to experiencing another big match atmosphere when Rovers take on Aston Villa at Ewood Park this afternoon.

A crowd of over 20,000 is anticipated for the final home game of the 2016-17 season in what is a huge match for the football club.

The Rovers boss has been delighted by the backing he and his players have received since taking charge two months ago and has called on the home fans to help cheer the lads onto victory once more.

"We owe the fans to finish this season on a real high if possible," said Mowbray.

"It is going to be a big occasion of course, Aston Villa are a huge football club, they will bring a lot of supporters.

"But ultimately it is about our fans making the right atmosphere in the stadium, being supportive of the team and hopefully the team will be brave and on the front foot, create chances and hopefully score some goals and give them plenty to cheer about.

"Lets wait and see, we have to earn the right. I know Steve Bruce he's a fantastic football manager and he'll have his team spot on I'm sure.

"We will give it the best shot we've got, the players won't have anything left by giving it the best go we can."

Fans who haven't yet got their tickets are advised to get down early to Ewood as large queues are expected at the ticket office ahead of the 3.00pm kick-off.

Prices for the match in all home areas are just £10 Adults, £5 Seniors and 18-21 year-olds, £2 Juniors aged 17 and under.
