Conway: Keep building on what we've done

Despite back-to-back wins in the league, Craig Conway knows that there is plenty of hard work to come.

After a slow start to the season, Rovers have collected six points from their last two league outings thanks to the away win over Bradford City and the 4-1 victory at Ewood against MK Dons.

The popular midfielder always believed those results would arrive, and that it shows the potential that the team has to do well this season.

"It has never been a case of us not having a good enough squad as I did feel that the results would come and they are starting to come," said the Scot.

"But there is a long way to go, we've just got to keep picking up points. We've got a couple of good results and a good result at home in the league which was convincing in the end.

"At the end of the day if we want to get to where we want to we need to win most games. So that is the plan.

"We just need to keep building on what we've done, keep working hard, and hopefully we'll be up there. I think we have shown what we are capable of and it is just about keeping that going."

For Conway, he is pleased to be back in the team having missed the opening weeks of the campaign with a hamstring strain picked up in pre-season.

But now back in the squad, he knows he has to work hard to ensure he remains there.

He added: "It has been frustrating watching from the side being out injured but there's not much you can do about it.

"But I'm feeling good, every game I'm feeling better. It is always hard coming back when you've not played for a few weeks, and trying to get the minutes when you need to win the games.

"It isn't like pre-season where you can get the minutes on and off, you've just got to hit the ground running.

"I've been feeling good to be fair and I think with every game I'll feel better and sharper. It is just getting the cobwebs off.

"I think the break has probably come at a good time as well. I played part of the three games within a week which was obviously a lot more than what I'd done.

"So it has been brilliant to get back involved and winning hopefully we can keep building on that."
