Beating Baggies will complete a great month

A third 1-0 win in the Championship will be just the ticket for Rovers forward Sam Gallagher

29 August 2019

Sam Gallagher believes Rovers can go into every game knowing they have the quality to beat any opponent home or away.

The big striker got off the mark for the first time as a permanent Rover when he planted a header beyond the reach of Sheffield United goalkeeper Simon Moore in midweek.

Rovers put up a strong showing against The Blades at Bramall Lane in the Carabao Cup, but were dumped out of the competition by Chris Wilder's Premier League outfit.

But Gallagher believes that Rovers have shown enough so far this season to head to West Bromwich Albion this weekend with plenty of belief, especially with the team's recent form in the league.

“We’ve put in a lot of good performances this season, but we know that’s not our limit and there’s so much more to come," the 24-year-old told iFollow Rovers ahead of the journey to the The Hawthorns.

"I think we should be excited by what we can achieve.

"Every game is tough in this league, but going down there, to take on a good team, it’s going to be especially difficult. But it should be a game that everyone should look forward to.

“Everyone’s looking back on the first month and know it was a tough one for us. I think it gives us confidence that we can battle it out with some of the top teams in this division.

“I think we can look back on the opening month and see that we’ve done a pretty adequate job. Getting off to the start we did, losing against Charlton, it wasn’t ideal.

“But I think the performances have been there, particularly in the Fulham game, where everyone came off the pitch so disappointed.

“The calibre of players they have, fresh from relegation, I felt we really stuck it to them, especially when you look back at the first 20 or 25 minutes," he added.

“We need to keep going and keep believing in ourselves, because we can go anywhere and get a result."
