A win to mark Mowbray's milestone

It's 600 not out for the boss after taking charge of our latest victory...

Tony Mowbray marked his 600th game as a manager with a win and clean sheet, so it's fair to say it couldn't have gone much better for him, right?

Statistics aren't high on the boss' priority list, and as expected, the Rovers chief brushed it off in his usual nonchalant manner when speaking to iFollow Rovers about it after the game!

“It's irrelevant to me. Milestones are there for other people. Is it 600 league games of 600 games in all competitions? What I do know is that to get another 400 games and reach the 1000 figure will result in another 10 years of torture!"

Well as he did ask, it's 600 games in all competitions for the boss since starting out in a caretaker role at Ipswich Town back in October 2002.

Of those 600 he's won 259 of them, with the latest of which coming at Hull at the weekend.

And on that victory, he was delighted to send the fans home happy and see the hard work put in on the training pitch lead to the winning goal at the KCOM Stadium to take Rovers up to 10th in the Championship table.

“I'm delighted for the players and delighted for the supporters. It's great to see them enjoying it! They know when we come away, win, lose or draw, they'll see a team fighting for the jersey and that's what we're all about here at Rovers," he added.

“It was good play, nicking the ball back in their half. It was similar to Bradley's goal at Carlisle and it's something I keep saying to him and to Kasey Palmer. Get in that six-yard box and score. You can't score every goal by bending it into the top corner from outside the box.

“Bradley's been sneaking into the area where it hurts and that's why he'll score plenty of goals for us this season."
