Rovers boss Tony Mowbray was thrilled to see his side claim a fourth consecutive league win with victory over Blackpool, but isn't getting carried away by the result.

Goals from Marcus Antonsson, Bradley Dack, Charlie Mulgrew and Paul Downing did the damage, as the Blues won 4-2 at Bloomfield Road.

Speaking after the game, Mowbray was naturally delighted, and says the result caps an excellent period for his side.

“I’m delighted for everyone that came to watch us, as well as the team, it was a fantastic effort tonight, said the boss.

“It was really hard-fought, I thought. Blackpool are a good side and asked questions of us. 

“We were clinical; when the chances came, we hit the back of the net. That’s what we’ve been doing lately.

“Teams will become more wary of us now, but let’s not get carried away, we haven’t achieved anything yet – let’s see how we go.

“You can’t dominate every game, but I’m pleased for the lads tonight, it’s been a massive 10 days for us."

Rovers came through a period of pressure at the end of the first half, and the manager was also asked about the changes he made at the break.

“We were under pressure in the first half, but buried our chances when they came, and that’s to do with quality. 

“The first two goals were great finishes under the goalkeeper.

“The half-time team talk was quite aggressive, to be honest - we were waiting to get beaten in that first half. 

“It was just a tactical change, I highlighted about second balls and doing the basics well.

“The goals eventually came, and we needed professionalism to get the job done.

“Tonight was great for the fans too, they travelled in big numbers again tonight, but let’s try to keep our feet on the ground."
