Take on the challenge

Tony Mowbray hopes this side can use the experience of claiming points at difficult away grounds when they take on Fulham this Tuesday evening.

After Saturday's point on the road at Norwich City, Rovers are back on their travels at Craven Cottage.

The boss feels that the performance levels have been good over the past few weeks and and knows they need another big display tonight to meet the challenge of the high-flying Whites.

"I think this team have been to some pretty big grounds this year and got some positive results when maybe people didn't think they could," said Mowbray.

"That shows a lot about their character so this is just the next test for this group of players. At times they have risen to those questions so lets see what Tuesday night brings.

"The performance levels over the last two weeks has been really high. We were unfortunate not to have beaten Cardiff and not to have beaten Norwich off the back of two wins at home.

"They are doing really well, they just have to keep going, they just have to keep believing in themselves. They have to keep working hard for each other and see where it takes us.

"There are ten games to go, there is a lot of football to be played, and a lot of points to play for.

"It is a tough ask for us but it is a game that is a challenge that we are looking forward to.

"We are going to go there and hopefully ask some questions of them, hopefully make life difficult for them when they've got possession and see how we come out."

Tickets for tonight's match are no longer on sale at Ewood, but they will be available at Craven Cottage, cash only from the away turnstiles at the Putney End from 6.30pm. Whilst ticket collections and duplicate tickets will be available from the Fulham ticket collection booths located to the left of the ticket office on Stevenage Road, also from 6.30pm.

Matchday prices are £25 for Adults, £20 for Seniors 65+ and 18-21 year-olds, £10 for fans aged 17 and under.
