Mowbray: Mulgrew's delivery is a menace

Tony Mowbray believes he has an unearthed a potent weapon thanks to the set-piece prowess of Charlie Mulgrew.

The new Rovers boss remembered how dangerous the Scot's corners and free-kicks were from his time in charge of Celtic whilst Mulgrew was a player at Aberdeen, and he put that to good use in Friday's match at Burton.

It was from a Mulgrew corner that Rovers took the lead, as his left-footed in-swinger glanced off Burton midfielder Matty Palmer and into the back of the net.

"I think it was evident all night, I think it is a weapon," Mowbray told Rovers PlayerHD.

"I said to him when I met him the other day that as manager of Glasgow Celtic when Charlie was playing for Aberdeen when he's whipping these free-kicks and corners in you can feel the menace of them. I'm sure Burton felt the menace of every corner and every wide free-kick from Charlie Mulgrew.

"We'll score goals from them deliveries. We did a bit of work, it was storm Doris so we went indoors and worked on set-plays for a bit and thankfully it paid off on the night."

Rovers are back in action this Tuesday night when Derby County are the visitors to Ewood Park.

Tickets for Tony Mowbray's first home game in charge are on open sale priced from £18 Adults, £12 Seniors/18-21 year-olds, and from £7 for Juniors aged 17 and under.
