There is belief running through the Rovers camp, according to boss Tony Mowbray ahead of this weekend's trip to Bristol Rovers.

A win at the Memorial Stadium will get Rovers back on track after a frustrating evening at Gillingham earlier in the week.
 
Inconsistency has seen the Gas win just one of their last six games, but Tony knows just how difficult a test a trip to the West Country is for his side, showcased from their visit to Ewood Park in November.
 
“I remember playing them at home earlier in the season and they certainly carried a threat. We won 2-1 but were chasing that game a little bit," the boss recollected to iFollow Rovers.
 
"[Ellis] Harrison has scored a few goals and built a reputation this season. But they have plenty of good players who carry a threat and we’ll be looking to implement our style and quality on them.
 
“We need to score when the opportunities come along. We need to play with belief, confidence and have total confidence in each other."
 
And with things hotting up in the race for promotion, Mowbray adds that every point is vital at this stage of the season, with one of three sides - the others being Wigan and Shrewsbury - set to be disappointed come the end of the campaign.
 
“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."
