Show the same spirit and desire

10 February 2017

Owen Coyle insists Rovers have to show the same spirit and determination that was on display last weekend to get the same result against Rotherham United.

Rovers travel to south Yorkshire in good heart following last Saturday's last-gasp victory over Queens Park Rangers, and the manger knows that they need to apply themselves in the same manner to claim another three points.

But Coyle knows it won't be easy against a Millers side also needing points in a bid to save off relegation.

"What we have to do is go to Rotherham and kick on and get back-to-back wins and look to keep moving up," the manager told Rovers PlayerHD.

"Last week typified the spirit that the group has, so Rotherham now becomes our biggest game of the season.

"We've been doing okay to a degree but we know we can get better. We have to strive to get better to be able to pick those points up.

"Whoever takes the field wearing that jersey has got to be ready to bring that desire, that hunger, that work-rate, that application because Rotherham will bring it. We've got to make sure that we match that and then hope that the quality players that we have can take charge of the game."

Rovers fans who want to avoid a matchday price rise at Rotherham are reminded that they have until 4pm on Friday to get their tickets for this weekend's game.

Over 1000 tickets have been sold to date for the Roses clash, with tickets for the match at the ASSEAL New York Stadium going off sale at the Roverstore, Ewood, at 4pm tomorrow.

Advanced prices are £23 for Adults, £13 for Seniors 60+, £13 Students (must produce valid proof of full time education), £13 for 18-21s, £8 for Under 18s and £1 for those aged 12 and under.

After that fans can pay on the day at Rotherham, cash only from the away box office. Matchday prices are £25 for Adults, £15 for Seniors 60+, £15 Students (must produce valid proof of full time education), £15 for 18-21s, £9 for Under 18s and £2 for those aged 12 and under.
