Mowbray - We'll go to Burton and be resilient

24 February 2017

Tony Mowbray insists that tonight's match against Burton Albion will be just as difficult as last Sunday's game against Manchester United.

Rovers impressed in the FA Cup tie at Ewood Park, and the new boss feels they have to hit the same heights against the Brewers to come away with a positive result.

As he takes charge for the first time tonight, Mowbray knows that the result is the only thing that matters, and he doesn't care how it is achieved.

"I watched the match against Manchester United the other night and that is the standard that they have to reach," said Mowbray.

"Make no mistake, Burton will be just as tough a test as Manchester United were. We will go and be resilient and work really hard and try and nick a result.

"It is a big game against a team in and around us in that part of that division. We have to realise that the league we are in and the teams we are playing against that we have to be resilient, we have to be tough, let's make the game a bit stodgy sometimes. 

"It might not be the greatest spectacle if we win it 1-0 from a set-play, but lets take that today, lets improve as we go along.

"When we don't have three games in a week and are Saturday to Saturday lets start putting down some patterns of play, lets start putting some more demands on how we are going to play. But at this moment lets try and win."
