Points are the priority

Tony Mowbray knows that points are all that matters in their bid for Championship survival.

The new Rovers boss takes charge at Ewood Park for the first time this evening against Derby County, but whilst he would love to see the side put in impressive performances, points are the priority given their current predicament.

"In the current plight we are in we have to get points," said the Rovers boss.

"Ultimately it is about points on the board however you get them. But what I do believe is if there is a consistency of performance level you will get more points over 46 games than just going out and hoping to sneak a win.

"That is what we work on. We try to give ourselves the best chance of getting the three points, but if you play well and you don't get the three points it is disappointing of course, but at least you know the processes that are in place to try and get the points are starting to come to fruition.

"You have to have some substance to build on. Not just throw them out there every week and hope that your talented centre-forward scores the winner, it doesn't quite work like that.

"So it is all about points for us with 14 games to go and Tuesday night is the first opportunity to get some."

Tickets for Tony Mowbray's first home game in charge will be on open sale up until the 7.45pm kick-off. Prices are from £18 Adults, £12 Seniors/18-21 year-olds, and from £7 for Juniors aged 17 and under.

Reserve your seat by booking online at, in store at the Roverstore, Ewood Park, or by phoning the call centre on 01254 372000.
