We've cleared the air

It's been over a year since the last time Rovers suffered back-to-back defeats, but following consecutive away losses at Preston North End and Wigan Athletic, the players and staff are quick to nip the disappointing run in the bud.

It's been a tough week for the players and Tony Mowbray, who was upset by what he saw from his team in the last two outings.

But a team meeting on Thursday morning got everything out of the system, and Rovers are ready to go again against Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday with a much improved display.

“We’ve spent all morning finishing the last two games off. We all had an open and frank discussion going through the game against Wigan in particular and it was a good meeting," Mowbray revealed to iFolllow Rovers.

“We’ve all aired a few views, have put the game behind us and are now ready to go again back at home.
“We’re targeting a win on Saturday, and hopefully with the fans behind us on the terraces we can achieve exactly that.
“We’ve lost seven goals in two matches and we’ve had good discussions of how and why it’s happened.
“They were two tough away fixtures and we were disappointing, but it’s time to get back to basics in the way we play and what we do.
“This team aren’t used to losing back-to-back games, so it’s a jolt for all of us. There are positives to the way the team have reacted during the meeting this morning. We needed it.
“We’ve asked questions, got answers and there have been players who have stood up and held their hands up.
“The lads have shown amazing resilience and togetherness for the past year or so. But this is the Championship and I imagine every single team in this league will lose back-to-back games this season."
