Points mean prizes

Tony Mowbray knows Rovers have to consistently add to their points tally to make it a successful season.

The Rovers manager believes an average of two points per game will result in the team being right up there in the promotion shake-up come the end of the season.

After nine matches so far in League One, Rovers are just behind the their target, but with a busy schedule of games coming up, Mowbray is hopeful the team can go on a long unbeaten run.

"If you are going to be really successful you've got to earn for two points a game really," he said.

"So after a dozen games if we can get to as close to 24 points as you can then you'll be doing okay. That is the general rule.

"Over 46 games if you get to 92 points then you are going to give yourself a really good chance of being in the top two.

"But it is pretty hard to do, because when you drop points in a game, you need another two or three to pick them points up again by winning consecutively.

"We are not too far away, we are two points behind with 16 points from nine games.

"So I'm very conscious that we have to keep improving. We have to find the consistency every week of hopefully winning games but not losing matches.

"Putting runs together where we are talking about double figures unbeaten, to keep pushing on and keep going.

"But it isn't going to be easy, there are a lot of teams doing well."
