Plenty of belief from the skipper in the squad Rovers have ahead of the remaining nine crunch games

Rovers skipper Charlie Mulgrew believes the squad has enough to cause problems for every team in League One.

Top of the table with just nine games to go, Mulgrew and his team-mates have lost just once in their last 26 games in the league and know what's needed with the end of the campaign on the horizon.
 
And ahead of the run-in, Mulgrew says three points every week has to remain the aim.
 
“Every game in this league has been hard, but we’ve always gone into them looking to win," the Scotland international says.
 
“It was a difficult first half for us against Blackpool last weekend and I don’t think we played as well as we can.
 
"We need to hope our quality comes through on top and see a game out and fortunately we won 3-0."
 
And looking around the dressing room before every game, captain Charlie has plenty of belief in his team-mates.
 
Mulgrew has fully recovered despite picking up a head injury against Blackpool, joking that he will be able to show off the "war wounds" in later life!
 
“There’s Adam [Armstrong], there’s Danny [Graham], Dacky [Bradley Dack], Payney [Jack Payne], Bull [Craig Conway], Benno [Elliott Bennett], Richie [Smallwood]. We really do have quality all over the park.
 
"Everybody is pushing together in the right direction, sticking together to get goals and keep them out at the back, too.
 
“It’s good to get war wounds to show the grandkids and I think I’ve probably got less knocks than I should have done this season, to be honest."
