Tony Mowbray believes his side will have to be at their very best when they come up against one of the form teams of the Championship this Tuesday evening.
After collecting a point on the road at Norwich at the weekend, next is a trip to the capital to take on high-flying Fulham.
The re-arranged game sees means a clash between two sides needing three points for different reasons. Rovers can do their survival hopes the power of good by winning at the Cottage, whilst the Whites can climb into the top six if they are successful.
"Tuesday is the next game, we'll be ready for it," said Mowbray.
"We know we are playing against probably the form team in the league at the moment off the back of a fantastic result at St. James at the weekend for them.
"They are in the situation now where they can break into the top six to go above Sheffield Wednesday with their game in hand so that is a huge spur for them.
"For us, for different reasons, we have to be focused and concentrated and lets see how we go. It is a game that we can should look forward to, we know they are a good team, we know they will have a lot of the ball, but that doesn't mean they are going to win.
"So we know it is a tough ask but we know it is a game that we will look to take some points to see if we can put pressure on the teams around us.
"Every game is an opportunity to pick up points. There was the frustration that we picked up an away point at one of the fancied sides in the league and actually dropped two places. But that's football, hopefully we understand that we have to win games along the way from now until the end of the season. Where they come it doesn't matter. We need to start picking up points and the more three points the better."
