Tony Mowbray insists he will pay no attention to what goes on at Doncaster Rovers on Saturday - not until full time, anyway.

A Rovers win against Oxford will mean Mowbray's men could clinch the League One title, but only if Wigan Athletic lose at Doncaster on the same day.
 
And Tony says his only focus is on ensuring that his side get their job done against an Oxford side who have won their last two games coming into Saturday's clash at Ewood Park.
 
“We should take the confidence, belief and our record at home this season into Saturday," Tony told iFollow Rovers. "I have no plans to keep check on what is going on at Doncaster. I expect our fans will tell us what’s going on there.
 
“We’re focussed on doing our job on Saturday and seeing what happens come the end of play.
 
“Great credit to Wigan for getting themselves in the position they are in, but we are kicking ourselves a little bit for letting a couple of results slip in recent weeks. Right now all we’re thinking about is finishing the season strongly."
 
So how has promotion gone down in the Mowbray household? The boss explains.
 
“I think my sons are proud, but I think they always felt we could do it," the boss added."They maybe think of me as the best manager in the world, which is okay by me!
 
"In all seriousness, I think they are more interested in where we’re going on holiday in the summer and playing Fortnite on their PS4.
 
“I’m not a fan of Fortnite really. There seems to be a lot of killing. But I have to say I do appreciate the graphics!"
