Corry: Make home advantage count

The midfielder says Rovers should go into every home game confident of earning the right result...

Corry Evans wants to make home advantage count when Frank Lampard's Derby County visit Ewood Park tomorrow night.

Evans, who has been a regular feature for Rovers this term, insists the squad still has plenty of belief, especially when playing at Ewood Park.

Whilst recent times haven't gone Rovers' way, the Northern Ireland international still believes that confidence is high when playing on home turf.

“We're at home again and we've got a good record over the last couple of years at home, so we need to make full advantage of that," he told iFollow Rovers ahead of Tuesday night's game.

"Derby are a really good team. When we played them away at their place, we were very fortunate to get a draw that night, but we've got a big point to prove given our recent run of games and hopefully we can get back to winning ways.

“We were very fortunate to get a 0-0 draw that night. If you look throughout their squad, they've got a lot of young attacking players, who are very comfortable going forward and playing free attacking football.

"So it will be a difficult game for us, but it's one that we're really looking forward to.

“There is always pressure to perform, no matter what stage of the season you're playing.

"We've got to look at it that there's six games to go and we've got to try and get as many points as we can to build for next season.

"I'm sure the manager is looking at it that way as well."
