Dack: Wanderers a "dangerous animal"

Rovers must ensure they're not caught off guard following Bolton's relegation, says the playmaker

21 April 2019

Rovers top goalscorer Bradley Dack believes all the pressure is on the team to deliver when already-relegated Bolton Wanderers make the short trip to Ewood Park on Monday.

Following three consecutive victories in the Championship, Rovers will take on the Whites in confident mood, and won the reverse fixture thanks to Dack's solitary strike.

But a wounded Wanderers, whose relegation was rubber stamped following a home defeat to Aston Villa on Good Friday, will come into the game with the shackles off, according to the playmaker.

“Games against relegated teams make the opponent a bit of a dangerous animal," he told iFollow Rovers ahead of the clash.

“They've been relegated, but there's no pressure and they can enjoy their final three games of the season in the Championship.

“But if we play at full tilt, like we have done in the last three games, I see no reason why we can't get the three points."

And on Rovers fine form, Dack's hoping the upward curve can continue throughout the remaining three games of the campaign.

“The run shows the character of the team, especially winning back-to-back wins away from home, which is so tough to do in the Championship," he added.

“We should all be proud of what we've achieved this season. We're a young team, fresh up from the Championship and have never been in a relegation battle this season.

"We'll have learnt a lot from this season, which I'm sure will stand us in good stead for next term."
