Rovers boss Tony Mowbray praised his experienced quartet of Charlie Mulgrew, Danny Graham, Craig Conway and Elliott Bennett for their drive and determination in the victory over Shrewsbury at the weekend.

Each player put in a strong shift, with Mulgrew bagging two and Graham finding the net, whilst Bennett looked at home playing in an unfamiliar central midfield role.

And Mowbray is delighted to see each of them enjoying their football in a happier environment nowadays.

"I want to put emphasis on the character of the football club and today with Conway, Mulgrew, Graham and Bennett out on the pitch, people who have felt the frustration at this club but are now hopefully enjoying it turning in the other direction, they’re driving it," Tony told iFollow after the game.

“You have to trust your players and my job is to put them in the right frame of mind for every game. Every game has to be played at that level and if a team manages to beat us, we’ll have to take it on the chin and move on.

“We feel as if we’re at our maximum and that not many teams in this league will take three points off us. We’re 15 unbeaten in the league and it’s about getting the lads at the right level of intensity for every match."

And on transfers, Mowbray admits he's hopeful of doing further business but says he's no further forward on announcing signings.

“Quite a bit is happening but there’s no news for you. I’d hope that early in the week there will be some news," the boss concluded.
