We have to be tactically spot on

3 April 2017

Tony Mowbray wants his side to show the same desire and determination as displayed at the weekend but to come out on the right side of the result this Tuesday night against Reading.

Rovers were more than a match for second-placed Brighton at the AMEX on Saturday, however Glenn Murray's second half strike proved to be the difference in a tight match.

The Rovers boss knows the midweek game at the Madejski will be yet another tough test, but one they are more than capable of passing.

"We need to work as hard as we did against Brighton, keep doing the right things, keep showing that work ethic and it will come and we will win matches," Mowbray told Rovers PlayerHD.

"Any successful side has to react after defeat, every team gets defeats. I've said that since the day I came in, we will get defeats.

"You are always looking for a reaction, so it is about trying to get three points in games.

"Away to Reading, it is another game similar to Brighton, it isn't an easy game, they've had a fantastic season. They are not a unique side but they are a side that are very ball orientated. They have a lot of the football, they spread it out similar to Fulham.

"So it is a game that we are going to have to be tactically spot on. If you aren't you can be in real trouble against these sides. We have to be really focussed and concentrated and then try and punish them on the change of possession.

"It will be tough ask for us to go to Reading but a game that we should look forward to and see if we can get three points."

Fans who haven't yet purchased tickets for tomorrow's match have until 11am to get them from Ewood on the day of the game.

After that they will be available on the night at the Madejski Stadium, from the South Stand Ticket Office from 6.30pm. Prices are £23 for Adults, £16 for 65 & Over, £13 for 18-24 years and £8 for Under 18s.
