Tony Mowbray knows that the forthcoming Easter matches will play a huge part in deciding Rovers' season.

Saturday's disappointing 2-0 loss at home to Barnsley has left Rovers four points from safety with just five games remaining.

Good Friday sees them travel to the City Ground to take on Nottingham Forest, before Rovers return to Ewood the following Monday afternoon against Bristol City. Games the manager insists they have to win.

"The next two we have to win them," Mowbray told Radio Rovers.

"We know how difficult it is, we've got a game to play, we have got to got to Nottingham and try and get a result.

"Then we have to come back here on the Monday a few days later and try and get a result against Bristol.

"We have to go there and bring those teams back closer to us and make the last couple of games really nervous for everybody.

"We know we are in a difficult situation so lets see what the future holds in the next few games.

"The players know where we are, for their own careers, for everyone involved at the football club. The urgency is there, they know that.

"There is no lack of desire to get the results, we'll see when the day comes. All we can do now is stick together, prepare properly for Nottingham Forest and see how it goes."

Tickets for Friday's match at Nottingham are currently on open sale priced at £24 for Adults, £17 for Seniors, £12 for Under-18s and £6 for Under-12s.
