A dangerous game for us

Tony Mowbray is anticipating another tough away encounter when Rovers take on Coventry City in the first round of the Carabao Cup this Tuesday night.

The Rovers boss spent 18-months in charge at the Ricoh Arena but he doesn't believe his new side will be given an easy ride on his return.

The Sky Blues had an impressive 3-0 win on the opening day of the season, and Mowbray knows Rovers will have to work hard to progress through to the next round of the competition.

"It is going to be a tough game, they had a fantastic result at the weekend," said the Rovers boss.

"They've got some decent players. I looked at the team that played at the weekend and there is only one or two in such a short period of time since leaving that are still playing.

"Jodi Jones got a hat-trick, we signed him for £100,000 from Dagenham and Redbridge, he's a talented young boy and progressing well. He's a threat to any team.

"So we have to be mindful, they've got some experience up top now as well. They've got a lot of threats.

"It is dangerous game for us. Any game away from home against any league team is a dangerous game. We have to go and try and apply ourselves, try and force our game on them and see where it takes us." 

Tickets for tonight's match go off sale at Ewood at 11.30am. Prices are Adults £12, Seniors 60+ £8, 18-21 £8 and Under 18 £1.

They will be available on the turnstiles at the Ricoh Arena, with prices rising by £1.

Going on the official away travel? Why not enjoy some lunch in Blues beforehand! We're open this Tuesday from 12 noon - 3.30pm with food served until 3pm.
