Mowbray reacts to Peterborough win

Read what the boss had to say following our fifth straight league victory

9 December 2017

Rovers boss Tony Mowbray was delighted to see his side come from behind to beat Peterborough and make it five league wins in a row on Saturday.

The Blues went into the break trailing 1-0 to Steven Taylor's early goal, but fought back with goals from Charlie Mulgrew and Bradley Dack (2). 

Speaking after the game, the boss was thrilled with the result, and says a change in mentality at the interval helped his side to victory.

"It was a frustrated dressing room at half-time, we could have been one or two up after 10 minutes after having some great chances early on," he said.

"We needed to make sure they left that dressing room with a positive mindset and that they went out to win the game.

"We got off to a flying start in the second half and pushed on from there. The third goal in particular I thought was unbelievable, it was a quality goal.

"I'm happy with the result, not so happy with conceding the two goals, but we keep winning. 

"I thought Peterborough were exceptionally good at counter-attacking, they have some good players and top teams will come here and find it difficult."

On his own team, the manager added: "over the last two months, we've seen a team that plays on the front foot - they're playing at the tempo we're asking them to play at.

"The players can see the benefits of how we're asking them to play and we're getting the results."

Rovers are next in action on Tuesday night when we face Crewe in an Emirates FA Cup second-round replay.
