Time to look forward, says Mowbray

The boss admits Scunthorpe were one of the best teams Rovers have faced this season

Rovers manager Tony Mowbray is expecting a difficult challenge on Saturday when Scunthorpe visit Ewood Park.

Rovers could make it a double with a win over the Iron, with Marcus Antonsson's goal being the difference when the two teams met at Glanford Park earlier in the campaign.

But Tony confessed it was a hard fought win and rates Graham Alexander's side highly ahead of their visit.

"I'm not surprised to see Scunthorpe fighting at the top of the table," Mowbray admitted.

"They made the play-offs last season and were one of the best sides we have faced this season, giving us a really good game.

"They were good with the ball and they have some very good players. It's a game we should look forward to and go into it in confident mood."

And the manager is eager for his side to look ahead rather than reflecting on past games from now on in.

It's been a good campaign so far, but Mowbray wants better from his side in the second half of the season.

"We're only at the halfway stage so nobody's getting carried away. The next two games are a real challenge for us. Were not thinking about what we've done in the past. We're fully focussed on the next 23 games.

"Physchologically these games are big ones. We have all the top teams still to play at home and we should really be relishing those ones."
