A massive result for us

4 March 2017

Tony Mowbray once again paid tribute to his side's resilience as Rovers made it back-to-back victories with the 1-0 win over Wigan Athletic.

Like the triumph over Derby County on Tuesday night, it took a second half strike to settle a tight affair, Marvin Emnes with a stunning solo goal to clinch the points that move Rovers out of the bottom three.

The manager also had words of praise for the supporters, believing they again played their part in helping Rovers to victory.

"It is a massive result for us," Mowbray told Radio Rovers. "Like Tuesday night the fans got us over the line again.

"I'm stood on the side, the clock seems to be going very slowly in games like that, but the ground was all singing and encouraging the team forward.

"It looked like there were some tired limbs out there after Tuesday night's exerts but the fans kept them going.

"It was a similar sort of finish to the game, we had to dig in, we had to see it off as they gambled forward. 

"We'll take the points, we aren't complaining, they showed fantastic resilience tonight as they did on Tuesday to get the points.

"We can't do that every week of course, we have to hopefully finish teams off and take a higher percentage of the opportunities that come our way and I'm sure we will as confidence grows.

"I'm just happy for everybody at the club that we're back to winning ways again. We've won two on the bounce with an opportunity at home to make it three."

Rovers are back in action this Tuesday night when Cardiff City are the visitors to Ewood Park.

Tickets are on open sale priced from just £18 Adults, £12 Seniors/18-21 year-olds, and from £7 for Juniors aged 17 and under.
