We have to show our quality

Gillingham the next test for Rovers

Tony Mowbray knows Gillingham will provide another tough test when the two sides go head-to-head this Saturday.

Following just one win from their opening nine league games, manager Ady Pennock left the Gills by mutual consent last Monday. But they earned a hugely creditable draw against Scunthorpe United under director of football Peter Taylor just 24 hours later.

So Mowbray knows that the Kent outfit will come to Ewood Park eager to impress, and that Rovers will have to match their work-rate in order to have the chance record back-to-back home league wins for the first time this season.

"We have to really focus in on Gillingham now," said the Rovers boss.

"Obviously they have been a team that have been at the wrong end of the table.

"But I worry that it is a dangerous game, a game that if we don't turn up it will be like Wimbledon.

"It will be a team that will work extraordinarily hard, know that they have to show to a new manager what they are capable of.

"They got a 0-0 on Tuesday night in a tough game for them, and showed that they were very resilient and hard to play against.

"So we have to show our quality at the weekend, try and pick up maximum points and keep taking each game as it comes."
