We'll be ready

6 May 2017

Tony Mowbray insists his side will be ready for the final match of the season against Brentford tomorrow lunchtime.

The Rovers boss has been at pains to stress the importance of keeping everyone's feet firmly on the ground to avoid any nerves at Griffin Park on Sunday.

Mowbray believes the nature of the last few weeks will actually help the squad be in the right frame of mind, having been used to that big match preparation.

"Every game has been critical for the last four or five weeks to be honest," said the head coach.

"It is trying not to get the intensity that you carry in your stomach every day onto the training ground and then your pre-match meetings and chats before you go out.

"You've got to relax them, they should know the work by then, you've done your work on the training ground, you know what's expected, you know hopefully what the opposition are going to do and what is required.

"So you have to trust them at the end of the day to go out and do it. Not to put them on tenterhooks by your own nervous energy carrying across to them.

"So I'm pretty clear that we'll be ready for the game on Sunday, but we'll be playing against a really good team who have scored a lot of goals at home recently.

"But we have gone to Nottingham Forest and won recently. We've been to Wolves and kept a clean sheet. Two big stadiums with big support. Brentford is just the next challenge for us and I know that everybody in a blue and white shirt will be giving everything they can to get the points to try and keep the club in the division."

Tickets for the match at Brentford were all snapped up so why not do the next best thing and watch Sunday's match at Blues Bar!
