Ryan ready to keep the good times rolling

The right back wants Rovers to put on a show in front of the home fans when Bristol Rovers visit Ewood Park

23 November 2017

Rovers right back Ryan Nyambe has urged his team-mates to take advantage of playing in front of the home faithful at Ewood Park and give in to their demands.

Whilst Tony Mowbray's side have looked solid - and at times, such as Tuesday - spectacular on the road this term, things haven't quite gone to planon occasions on home turf.

However, with two good wins in a week, Ryan knows it's time to simply focus on Rovers' own job and continue in the same vein that's seen them score seven goals in the last two games.

"It's been a really good last couple of games for us. We're in good form and we want it to carry on by doing what we've been doing," the teenager told iFollow.

"We've got a big a big month or so of games coming up and we also have the two games in hand as well. The two wins have come at a good time for us. 

"We've gone to Bury and Oxford with no fear and the fans have certainly helped us achieve those two wins - they were there in their numbers for both matches and were fantastic.

"We've seven goals in two games, which is a nice confidence boost for us.

"We have to perform at Ewood. The fans want more from you when you play at home and if we do that then we can get the right result."

Nyambe's been battling with the experienced Paul Caddis for a right back berth all season, and his recent form has seen Mowbray keep the faith in his young defender, who's been producing accomplished displays in a back five which has been pretty mean in terms of giving opposition goals in recent weeks.

And Nyambe admits David Raya, Paul Downing, Charlie Mulgrew, Derrick Williams and himself now have an understanding when playing together.

"The clean sheets have been good this season, which has given the defensive unit confidence going into games with the belief that we are capable of stopping sides from scoring.

"We all have a really good relationship in the backline. I think everyone in the squad all has a really good connection. We all feel united and together.

"It's great to be back in the team and keeping clean sheets. I feel more comfortable at right back and I just need to improve my attacking play going forwards and helping the team further up the park.

"I believe I can add that to my game if I can continue working hard on my game and developing as a player."
