A positive start for us

Charlie Mulgrew believes there were promising signs with the way the team played in the first game in charge under new boss Tony Mowbray.

Rovers dominated for long spells at Burton Albion on Friday night, with Mulgrew's deflected inswinging corner giving the visitors the lead. But they couldn't build on their bright display as they were pegged back in the second half.

The Scottish international felt it was a good start under the new regime and hopes it leads to more positive results.

"The way we played in the first half, we dominated the ball, dominated the game," Mulgrew told Rovers PlayerHD.

"We were a bit unlucky but it is a good start for us a good solid start and hopefully we can get better from here.

"We passed the ball brilliantly, the manager got a lot of his ideas across very quickly, probably quicker than everybody expected, we were very happy with the first half.

"In the second half they pressed a bit more and made it more difficult for us and scored a great goal.

"But all-in-all I think it is a good start for us, a positive start and we can look forward to the next game."

The next game comes this Tuesday when Rovers host Derby County at Ewood Park.
