Mulgrew - We're enjoying the new manager's ideas

11 March 2017

Charlie Mulgrew believes the arrival of new boss Tony Mowbray has had a positive effect on the team.

The Rovers are unbeaten since the arrival of the former West Brom, Celtic and Middlesbrough manager, with two wins and two draws from his four games in charge.

The Scottish international believes the few tweaks that Mowbray has made to the way the team play has paid dividends, and feels it has given them confidence going into the final 11 matches of the season to keep rising up the table.

"Everybody is enjoying the new manager's ideas and the way he has got us playing," said Mulgrew.

"He's not been here very long but he's got his ideas across quite quickly and we've picked up a few good results and a few decent performances so it is onwards and upwards hopefully.

"We defend as a team and we attack as a team so I think just a couple of tweaks here and there and a bit of organisation has really helped in both ways.

"When we are attacking we really have got a plan to lock teams in and everybody is responding well to it so long may it continue.

"It gives us confidence, but the most important thing is the organisation and the way we have played in those games. We probably deserved to win the other night and the first game as well we probably deserved to win.

"They have been different types of games, we can take confidence from it. But we aren't getting carried away, we are looking to the next match, we know it is going to be difficult but I'm sure the manager will have a game plan and we'll hopefully stick to it."

The versatile Rovers also feels that the increased competition for places has also helped the squad to raise their game.

Rovers have a near fully-fit squad, something that will be vital for the end of season run-in.

He added: "I think it is healthy for every squad to have competition but right now, and particularly in the last few weeks, there has been a lot of competition for places.

"So I think everyone is aware of that and it can only benefit the ones that are playing.

"Everybody trains hard every day, everybody is looking to play games so you've got to be on your toes and be aware that somebody is wanting your place and everybody is fighting in the right direction.

"The manager has said that there'll be different games where different people are needed, we are all a squad and it is a squad game, so we all do it together."
