We're going to Stoke to win, says Dack

The playmaker says a point isn't good enough this weekend as he looks ahead to the trip south

Bradley Dack has taken to life as a Championship player like a duck to water and says Rovers' standards are so high that they aren't going to head to Stoke with the aim of returning with just a point.

Rovers have pushed Aston Villa and Derby County all the way in the last week, picking up two draws against the Midlands sides.

And there's another tricky test coming on Saturday at the bet365 Stadium when Rovers tackle Gary Rowett's Potters, who were relegated from the Premier League at the end of last season. 

“Tuesday’s game was a tough one and in the end we plugged away and managed to get a point despite not being at our very best," Dack began.
“Stoke are a good side, one that came down from the Premier League last season. They have some good players and we’ll look to go there and win. That’s the mentality we have. We never aim to take anything less than that from any game."
Life's been good to Dack in the second tier, who has three goals in his opening five Championship games.
And aside from an irritating injury earlier in the campaign, the 24-year-old confesses he's relishing every challenge thrown his and Rovers' way.
“I’m enjoying the Championship. To come up to the level having played in League One most of my career has been very good for me.
"I had to prove I could cope with the step up. It’s about taking opportunities. You want to set yourself challenges and so far I’m doing okay, I feel."
