Boss Tony Mowbray insists things are ticking along just fine for Rovers ahead of Saturday's trip to the Memorial Stadium to tackle Bristol Rovers.

With the games running out, Mowbray wants another three-point haul to be achieved in the West Country, as Rovers look to take advantage of Shrewsbury not playing.

And with the second long journey of the week on the horizon, Tony wants his players to go out there in a relaxed mood to produce their best football.

“The mood in the camp is good and one with plenty of belief. We’re training well but there’s been a lot of travelling, a lot of sitting in hotels and in airport lounges," he admitted to iFollow Rovers ahead of the game.

"We try to take the intensity out of things to ensure the players can play to their maximum in matches. These things can have an impact on players’ bodies.

“We’re onto the second of two long trips this week. It was a long trip with issues to Gillingham, but we’ve no excuses and will go to Bristol with the aim of getting those three points. Win five games and we will get 100 points and be a Championship team.
 
“You hoped that we would be strong in this league with the players we retained and the players we signed. Ultimately our quality in the vast majority of games comes to the fore."
 
And as he's mentioned in the last few weeks, Tony continues to challenge his side to do their job without worrying about the other two sides at the top of the League One table.
 
“At times we relish it when teams want to attack us. Let’s get on with things, look to win all of our games, and see what we can do," he added.
 
“You try to keep your destiny in your own hands, that’s the plan. The plan is to win five games and I’m sure the coaches of Shrewsbury and Wigan will be saying the same.
 
"What will be the best two teams in the division will be the ones who earn the most points and we’ll be aiming to be one of those two."
