Rovers manager Tony Mowbray says his players are eager to get back to winning ways when Walsall visit Ewood Park on Tuesday evening.

The Blues were forced to settle for a 1-1 draw against Northampton on Saturday, despite dominating the game. 

Mowbray says the Walsall clash is a good opportunity for Rovers to put the weekend result behind them, but is aware that it will be a tough test.

“The frustration of Saturday is already gone and we’re looking forward to Walsall now," he said.
 
"Every time you drop points, it gives teams a lift and an incentive. We can only impact the games we play in so we have to get three points every week.
 
“Walsall haven’t played for 10 days and will be prepared for the game. They will be organised and we’ll be playing the best Walsall side that they can get.
 
“Walsall when at their best are a match for anyone. They have had some inconsistencies this season and have had loan players that have gone back.
 
"I’ve studied their last few games and they have some talented players and some obvious threats. 
 
"The little lad [Erhun] Oztumer is a talented young boy who I’ve watched since his Peterborough days.
 
"He’s a technician, someone who can unlock doors and I think has reached double figures for goals this season, so we'll have to be mindful of that.

“We’ve got to keep plugging away and keep the performance levels high. We’re all looking forward to Walsall, it will be a high-energy performance and hopefully a positive result to propel us on to the next one."
