Tony Mowbray hopes to make it a fantastic week of points when when they face AFC Wimbledon this Saturday.

After away victories over Rochdale and Scunthorpe, Rovers are back on home soil when they entertain the Dons at Ewood Park.

The Rovers boss has been satisfied with the performance levels of the team on the road, but hopes they are able to put in the same sort of display as showed in their last home game against Milton Keynes when they ran out 4-1 winners.

"We have to physically and mentally ready for this game," Mowbray told iFollow Rovers.

"I'm anticipating a tough game and I am sure that is what we will get, but it is one that we hope to put on a performance to get the points.

"This week has seen us get six huge points and we have to go and try and make that nine if we can.

"We are at home, so it will be a different performance I'm sure. Lets hope we can hit some of the levels that we did in the second half against MK Dons. There were spells where we scored a few goals and sent the fans home happy.

"We need to try to be on the front foot, try and ask questions of the opposition. But also be respectful of them.

"There are some good teams in this league and if you are too gung-ho, commit too many men forward, expand too many passes, then you can get caught out.

"It is about finding a way to win football game, and hopefully there's a level of patience in the stadium and from the team at the weekend.

"At this moment we have found a formula that seems to work well, so lets see how far we can take it."
