Let's keep the steady ship sailing

Tony hoping to steer Rovers in the right direction on the crest of a wave

There hopefully won't be choppy waters ahead for Rovers in the final 10 games of the campaign, but keeping calm and not going overboard will ideally ensure Tony Mowbray's side dock in at the Championship come May.

All hands will be on deck for the last push into port and Tony says he's hopefuly things will go swimmingly for his side due to the players' attitudes in the final matches of the campaign.
And the boss adds that although Rovers will only play one of the current top six between now and the end of the season, they simply cannot take any opponent lightly.
“You want to keep the ship steady and have a calm approach for every game," he said ahead of Blackpool's visit to Ewood Park this weekend.
"You need to understand the strengths and weaknesses of opponents. There is an urgency and a desire from the players to get out of this league.
“If someone is going to beat us then they’ll have to play really well. You find that teams at the bottom of the league start winning because there is an urgency to get out of the relegation zone. We saw that last season in ourselves.
“This season, with 10 games left, you could say the run in is alright, but that run in is also very dangerous because opponents are trying to make the play-offs or trying to get out of a relegation battle. Every game is difficult and we have to be ready for every challenge."
Rovers are next in action on Saturday 10th March when ex-boss Gary Bowyer brings his Blackpool team to Ewood Park in League One.
