The next game is the most crucial

Tony Mowbray knows Tuesday night's victory over Scunthorpe United will count for nothing if they can't follow it up with a win this weekend against AFC Wimbledon.

Rovers inflicted a first defeat of the season against the Iron thanks to a hard-working display at Glanford Park, and in doing so recorded a fourth consecutive league win for the first time in ten years.

After two matches on the road, Rovers return to Ewood Park this Saturday, and the manager knows they have to perform once more against the Dons.

"What is important is that we get ready for the next one and that is Wimbledon," said Mowbray.

"It is no good coming away to Scunthorpe and then losing at home to a team that are doing well in League One but over years it hasn't been the level they've been functioning at.

"So it is a massive game for us on Saturday - as every game is. I try to get into their minds whether it is every three days or once a week, the next one is the most crucial.

"I've said to the players to make Saturday's game even bigger. We have to keep going.

"The worst scenario is to think that we are doing great and we don't turn up against Wimbledon at home.

"We have to make sure that the desire to play forward, the effort to close down, and the organisation is there, and hopefully we'll give them problems and try and get another three points.

"It is the next hurdle, the next barrier in our way that we need to get over."

Tickets for Saturday's match are on open sale priced from just £20 for Adults, from £13 Seniors/18-21yrs, from £7 for Under-18s and from £5 for Under-12s.
