A good habit to have

Boss pleased to see Rovers score late

11 July 2017

Tony Mowbray was pleased to see Rovers show that attacking mentality in Saturday's win over Barrow.

Rovers lead at the break courtesy of Craig Conway's fine team goal, however the hosts levelled midway into the second half through Richie Bennett.

However the Blues struck with the last kick of the game to defeat the Cumbrians, when Danny Graham fired home from Bradley Dack's cushioned header.

And the manager knows that scoring late goals will be a good habit to have when they get their League One campaign underway in less than four weeks time.

"I think it is important to try and create a culture that we have to try and win matches this year," said Mowbray.

"I said to them at the end of the match that it is important that when you need to try and get three points you have to learn how to push on and gamble defensively a little bit.

"Sometimes we might lose a late goal because we are trying to win a game, but we have to have a mentality of attacking and pushing people on.

"So it was pleasing that we did score a late goal against Barrow."

Rovers continue their pre-season preparations this Friday afternoon when they face Sparta Prague in Salzburg.
