There's a belief among the players, says Bell

Amari'i Bell says there's a belief in the Rovers dressing room going into the last nine games of the season, but insists no-one is getting carried away.

The Blues hold automatic promotion in their hands ahead of the run-in, with Wigan and Shrewsbury the other sides fighting for a place in the top two.

And while Bell believes Rovers are capable of competing at the next level, he says focus is firmly on the next game.

“This club shouldn’t be in this league," he told reporters.

“We could easily compete in the Championship and that was my goal when we came here.

“We share the same ambition and we share that goal - that’s why I came here.

“You need experience but also young players who have the desire and hunger to progress.

“We can learn from the experienced pros and that’s great. We need to look at other results but at the end of the day we need to keep focussed on ourselves.

“We believe that we’re good enough to get promoted so will concentrate on ourselves.

“We have to win as many as we can and that’s the goal for us."

Amari'i says the international break has given the players ample time to get ready for Thursday's game against Bradford at Ewood Park, and says he'll be raring to go if called upon.

“We can get prepared," he added. "We've had a while to prepare for the next game and need to make sure we prepare right.

“Personally, I have to stay ready. I have to come in to any game and perform as well as I can."
