Guthrie - the new gaffer has given us a solid foundation to play from

Danny Guthrie believes Rovers are on the right track after putting in what he described as their best performance of the season last weekend against Preston.

The Rovers midfielder feels the team are really starting to take on board manager Tony Mowbray's ideas and hopes they continue to bear fruit between now and the end of the campaign.

Whilst disappointed that Rovers weren't able to collect three points last time out at Ewood, Guthrie insists the signs are there that they can have a successful last eight matches.

"This past week we have been working on some new stuff with the gaffer which has been interesting," said Guthrie. "So it is a pity that we don't have a game at the weekend.

"We've been unbeaten but we are probably disappointed that we haven't picked up more wins.

"I think last Saturday was possibly our best performance since the gaffer came in with the ball. If we'd have come off the pitch with a 2-1 win we'd have been delighted and out of the zone.

"But there are a lot of games to play and a lot of points up for grabs. We've got some tough away games coming up but we can take confidence from our previous two when we went to Fulham and Norwich and earned two good points so we are full of confidence.

"He has made us more solid and given us a foundation to play from. We set up depending on who we are playing. Against Fulham away is different to setting up against someone else away, so it is always interesting in the week leading up to the game because the gaffer has always got a different idea as to how the game is going to go.

"Next season I'm sure the gaffer will be keen to push on providing we can stay up this year which we are more than doing. So the future does look bright, the gaffer has come in and made a hell of a difference to the team.

"The most important thing is staying up and consolidating and then who knows next season."
