We need to keep believing

14 April 2017

Tony Mowbray insists that his side will be giving everything they've got to get a victory over Nottingham Forest this Friday afternoon.

In a huge Easter weekend of football, the Rovers boss believes that he has the squad of players to get the points to put pressure on the teams above them.

Rovers started life under Mowbray unbeaten in seven matches, but three defeats in a row has left them second from bottom in the table, but the manager insists that they have to remain positive to help them get much-needed positive results.

"We talked about how well it had gone for five or six weeks for us and then all of a sudden we've lost three on the bounce and everything has spiralled as if everything is negative," said Mowbray.

"It can't be that way, we need to stay positive, we need to keep believing that they've done exceptionally well.

"I look at their work-rate everyday and what they do and there's a lot of hard work, a lot of concentration, a lot of meetings, a lot of work on the grass and a lot of effort put in by everybody really to try and get results for the football club.

"We'll go to Forest and it won't be through a lack of desire or effort if we don't. But I'm pretty confident - as I feel before every game - the group are looking good so lets go and play the football match and lets see how we get on.

"I don't want to give anybody any false promises, but I will tell you that we will work really hard, be organised, disciplined in what we do and lets see where it takes us, lets see if it can get us a positive result.

"I can't guarantee that we are going to win and get three points because there are two teams playing and I can't control how Forest are preparing and what they are doing with their players.

"But with our group of players we'll work extremely hard and try and get a result for the football team."
