We've still got our eyes on top spot

Rovers sit in third place at the moment, but the aim is still to take the title come the end of the season, according to playmaker Bradley Dack.

Dack's superb form over the last couple of months has been a big reason for Rovers' surge up the table and with confidence high in the camp, the 24-year-old says the club can still reach the top.

"To not lose since October is really good and shows our strength of character," Dack, who won the PFA Bristol Street Motors Player of the Month award, said.

"We always know we can score goals and hopefully we can turn those draws into wins.

"Everyone in the changing room is confident. It's the time of year where perhaps the pitches don't suit the football and we've had to find different ways of winning games."

Dack's fine goalscoring form actually started at Shrewsbury back in September and the midfield man is hoping to be in amongst the goals against the same opponents on Saturday, in which would be a milestone strike.

"It would be nice to get the 50th goal of my career at the weekend and hopefully it'll be 50 more before long as well," he said.

"We've lost a bit of ground on the top two which is something we're looking to put right on Saturday.

"In that game I remember playing out wide before the boss moved me inside with about 20 minutes to go, got the goal and I haven't looked back since.

"They are second in the league and if we win then we close the gap. We know their strengths and weaknesses. They have good quality. It could have a big phycological impact. They have some tough games after playing us and want to put the pressure on. 

"Everyone knows that we probably have to win this game. That's not putting the pressure on us, we go out to win every game and go out to get the three points.

"You see it in training; the boys are desperate to do well and everyone's looking really sharp. 

"We're going for top spot. Credit to Shrewsbury and Wigan keeping their form up but we just have to focus on ourselves. We've been on a great unbeaten run in the league, it's a good record but it counts for nothing if we don't get promotied at the end of the season."
