Tony: We have to guard against complacency

"I hope we can turn a good week into a great week."

Rovers boss Tony Mowbray wants his side to show they've learned their lessons from earlier in the season by building on victories against Bury and Oxford and making it a week to remember for the club.

Tony's troops have come unstuck at Ewood at times during the campaign, and the boss is eager for his team to ensure that doesn't happen again when Bristol Rovers come to town on Saturday.

"I hope we can turn a good week into a great week," Mowbray told iFollow.

"It's at home and it'll be a tough game against a team who have been in this division for a couple of years now.

"We'll be going into it to ensure the preparation is right, be focused and ask questions of Bristol Rovers.

"You have to be guarded against complacency. We've got through the last two and have to be sure we don't slip up like we did against AFC Wimbledon and Doncaster.

"We have to ensure we find an intensity for a game after every three days or so - that's what it's like at the moment.

And in terms of selection options for the game, Tony confesses he has no fresh injury concerns, despite Corry Evans coming off early in the second half at Oxford on Tuesday.

"Corry is okay. It doesn't look as if there's an injury there, which is good news for us.

"I think it's going to be the same as it has been for us in the last week or so in terms of selection. Craig Conway and Ben Gladwin are still a couple of weeks away.

"It's about resting and preparing mentally, ticking along in training and keeping the momentum going."
