Boss: No time for rest

Mowbray says Rovers will begin preparing for a busy period as early as Thursday

8 November 2017

Rovers manager Tony Mowbray is hoping his side can build momentum after the international break, during what will be the busiest period of the season.

The Blues currently occupy the final play-off place in League One and are next in action on Saturday November 18th, when we make the short journey to Bury.

The match is one of four still remaining in November, ahead of the action-packed Christmas period.

Asked whether he would give his players time off following Tuesday's Checkatrade Trophy clash with Rochdale, Mowbray says there's no time for rest. 

“No, it’s feet up for one day only," he said. "They’re back in on Thursday and Friday and can have the weekend off.

“We’ll have a full week of preparation for a busy period. We’re looking forward to it.

“It’s been a stop-start season, but hopefully with the international breaks done until the new year, we can get some consistency.

“We want to be on the front foot, ask questions of teams and get the results we require in the league. “
