Our only mindset is to go and win the game

5 May 2017

Tony Mowbray isn't bothering himself with all the permutations that surround Sunday's match against Brentford.

Instead the boss is concentrating on doing what is required to ensure his side collect all three points against the Bees.

Rovers occupy the final spot in the bottom three, but are only behind Nottingham Forest on goal difference and sit just two points shy of Birmingham City, meaning there's everything to play for at Griffin Park.

"Our only mindset is to go and win the game," said Mowbray. "I'm positive that we can go there and get a result.

"I'm sure we can find a performance and then ultimately see what everybody else does.

"Sometimes actually knowing that you have to go and get a result from the position of being third bottom can actually help because there are no grey areas.

"You have to go and win and but without being gung-ho, we'll go and be positive.

"We'll have a Plan-B and a Plan-C hopefully ready if required as the game unfolds.

"If someone whispers in my ear if we are 1-0 down that Nottingham Forest are losing 4-0, we won't be throwing strikers on. But you have to expect teams are going to try and get the business done themselves.

"The only other scenario if everybody wins is we have to win by a good few goals more than Forest, so lets wait and see what happens. That is why you've got substitutes, that is why you have got a squad of players to try and affect the game late on, either throwing defenders on to shore it up at the back, or throwing strikers on to get a goal that you desperately need.

"I'm sure everybody will have their ear close to their phones and checking what is going on elsewhere. But we have to take care of business ourselves, we have to go to Brentford and try and take on the difficult task of getting three points.

"Lets see what Sunday brings, lets see how it unfolds in front of us with the mentality that we will go there to be really positive and try and win."
