Tony Mowbray says Saturday's clash with Rotherham United at Ewood Park is "a really dangerous game" as his side aim to earn back-to-back wins.

Following last weekend's narrow victory against QPR, Rovers have the chance to back that win up with the three points against the Millers.
But he knows just how tough the fixture will be, despite the Yorkshire side's disappointing record on the road.
“If you are a manager who discusses fine margins when you get beat, too many of those mean you’re at the wrong end of the table," Tony said when looking back at last week's win.
"Last week was an important match for us to nick the result, and this is another big game for us.
“On Rotherham, they drew at Preston and picked up a fantastic point at the Riverside against Middlesbrough. Added to that, they beat Swansea City last weekend.
“This is no gimme. We will be up against an honest, hardworking football team who create a lot from set pieces. They have some big players who know how to take the sting out of games.
“It’s going to be another tight game and one that we’ll hopefully come out on top of.
“It’s a really dangerous game on Saturday. I watched the game against Swansea last week and it showed to me that Rotherham can hang in there and make life difficult.
“I actually set next to their manager Paul Warne at a function earlier this week and he’s a great guy. We both played down our team’s season so far, of course!
“Saturday will see a team who will fight us for everything, won’t give an inch and will run and run."
