Mowbray hopes for an away repeat

22 April 2017

Boss Tony Mowbray feels his side can draw on the experience of last week's victory over Nottingham Forest when they face Wolverhampton Wanderers this afternoon.

Rovers collected their first win on their travels since November with the 1-0 triumph at the City Ground, and he hopes it stands them in good stead for this Saturday's clash at Molineux.

Mowbray has been pleased with the way his side have performed on the road during his time in charge and would love to see another good performance and a positive result.

"The boys know that they have played pretty well away from home recently," said the manager.

"Okay we lost 1-0 at Brighton and then I could give you circumstances as to why we lost 3-1 with both centre-halves going off.

"But generally the performances have been decent away from home. Burton for an hour we were exceptionally good. Norwich, it was one of those games where we dropped two points as we should have won really. And Fulham, I thought it was a good football match, and in the second half particularly we came on really strong.

"So there is no fear going away from home for this team I don't think. I think we know we can be solid and we can create chances and try and deny space to the opposition.

"Molineux is a big ground with a passionate support and they'll be fully behind their team. We have to try and quieten them down and ask questions of their team.

"Lets wait and see, the group are looking forward to this game, particularly off the back of an away victory at Forest. Sometimes they come in in little cycles where you go on a run so lets see if Forest has kick-started a good little run away from home for us."
