Tony: We're relishing Tuesday's challenge

Boss says his side are prepared and ready to face Wimbledon battle head on

Tony Mowbray says his side should look forward to the challenge of making it four consecutive victories when his side take on AFC Wimbledon on Tuesday night.

Mowbray's men come into the game in fine form, but the club with the highest capacity stadium in the division will head to the side with the lowest.
And although a tightly packed arena could prove to be tricky for Rovers, with the Cherry Red Records Stadium holding less that 5,000 supporters, Mowbray insists they have no excuses should his side fail to pick up all three points.
“It’s an environment that you have to go into a relish," he said defiantly. "You can’t turn up and moan about the facilities. Wimbledon have built their history on being the underdogs and with Neal [Ardley] as the manager there, he’ll be breeding that feeling amongst his group as well."
And the boss concluded by saying only one outcome is acceptable from his players, who will be seeking revenge for the defeat inflicted on them by Tuesday's opponents at Ewood Park at the start of the campaign.
“We will want to impose ourselves at Wimbledon. You have to have total respect for Wimbledon. We’ll go there to compete and the only thing we’re thinking about is getting those three points."
