Rovers captain Charlie Mulgrew insists he and his team-mates can still improve in the second half of the season, and wants an upturn in performances to start against Shrewsbury on Saturday.

The centre back has had a fine campaign so far, keeping clean sheets and being in amongst the goals in a solid first half of the campaign.

But Mulgrew wants more and although he admits it's a big game when the Shrews visit Ewood Park, says whatever the result won't determine where Rovers will finish this season.

"It's a massive game on Saturday. We're hoping we can get the job done. It's not going to make or break anybody's season but we need to go out there, play a game and get those three points," the 31-year-old told iFollow.

"Shrewsbury aren't in the position they are in through luck, it's hard work that's got them there. There's a long way to go, Saturday's the next big one and we'll be going out to win the game.

"We're looking forward now. We've done well but we feel we can do even better in the second half of the season.

"Adam Armstrong's come in to add to the quality and competition for places. It's a good squad and we know what we have to do for the remainder of this season."

And Mulgrew wants supporters to play their part on Saturday and beyond.

"The fans have been great recently, turning up in their numbers and getting behind us. We have to be up for every game as a unit as players and fans.

"We feel the atmosphere and hopefully we can do our best for them and they can really help us on for the rest of the season."
