Pleased the players are understanding what is required

1 March 2017

Boss Tony Mowbray is pleased that the team seems to be understanding his methods of play and what is required to get the results.

After dominating the match against Burton Albion last Friday night but only picking up a point, Rovers showed their resilient side as they edged a close contest with Derby County 1-0 thanks to Craig Conway's second half penalty

Mowbray knows that it won't be a feast of football every week, but hopes that they can take the confidence gained from Tuesday night's victory into this weekend's home game against Wigan.

"I'm just happy that they are taking on board the information," the manager told Rovers PlayerHD

"There are lots of ways to win football matches and I'm hoping that there'll be lots of days in the future where we can dominate a team and create chances, score goals, win matches and everybody goes home happy.

"We have to start, we have to be resilient, we have to get three points, that is what it takes.

"It won't be like that every week, we will dominate some football matches where we are good with the ball, but we still have to be resilient, we still have to get clean sheets.

"So hopefully that gives them belief and the confidence to win the next game."



Rovers are back in action this Saturday when Wigan Athletic are the visitors to Ewood Park.
