Back us in your numbers, urges Tony

The boss wants a bumper crowd to spur his Rovers side on when Norwich City visit Ewood Park

Tony Mowbray is asking supporters to bring plenty of Christmas cheer with them when his Rovers side tackle high-flying Norwich City at the weekend.

It's Rovers' final game before Christmas Day, and the boss is eager to see a bumper crowd to get right behind his side against the second placed Canaries.

Mowbray's team have an excellent record on home turf and have lost just once in league action in 15 months.

And whilst he's looking forward to the challenge of knocking the Canaries off their perch on Saturday, Tony also knows how tough a game it will be.

“We’re looking forward to a game against a side who are right at the top of the division," he said to iFollow Rovers.

"It’ll be a great game for us, hopefully with a big crowd, as I imagine a lot of Blackburn people will be back in the area for Christmas. 

“We’ve done pretty well against the top teams and I see no reason why we can’t cause Norwich some problems and earn the three points.
“It’s been pretty decent at home, the Sheffield United game aside. We’d have liked more points of course, there’s probably a couple more draws in there than we’d like."
It's been a good first half of the campaign from Mowbray's side, but the boss is striving for more from his players over the festive period and beyond.
“We’re just falling slightly short of being right up there in the top six," he added.
“We need gradual improvement, to keep moving forward. I think the top six is there in front of our eyes. We’ve said a lot about how close we’ve been to it.
“We’re probably a couple of players off from killing teams off at both ends of the pitch. My job is to put a team out on the grass to win week in, week out."
