Let's make winning a habit

Bradley Dack is targeting a winning week for Rovers, with Hull City to come on Tuesday night

19 August 2019

It's a big week ahead for Rovers, with Tony Mowbray's side aiming to make it two wins from two on Tuesday night when he takes the team to Hull City.

Mowbray's men got off the mark for the campaign with the three points against Middlesbrough at the weekend, and with clashes against Hull and Cardiff City to come this week, it's a chance to gain momentum early on into the season.

Bradley Dack bagged the winner at Hull last season in the 1-0 victory at the KCOM Stadium, and speaking to iFollow Rovers, the playmaker has urged Rovers to carry on straight from where they left off against Boro.

“It was nice to get our first three points of the season and also nice to get the clean sheet," the 25-year-old said when reflecting on the weekend win.

"We know that this season we have to keep more clean sheets than last term.

“The gaffer wants us to play a new way this season, but sometimes you need to go back to basics and back to what we know best. When we get into certain areas we do like to use Danny’s physicality and I felt it worked well for us.

“Changing styles takes time. The clubs that went up last season, Sheffield United and Norwich, it took them time to get to where they wanted to be.

“We’re in that process at the moment and hopefully things can start to click for us and we go on a bit of a run now.

“We have tough games coming up, but we want to head to Hull and get the three points. Winning becomes a habit in football, the same as losing becomes a habit."

Hull's record reads one win, one draw and one defeat from their opening three Championship games of the campaign, and with The Tigers aiming to finish up towards the play-offs this season, Dack believes Tuesday's result will be a decent gage for Rovers.

“It’s a good test of where we are, what team we are and where we’re likely to be come the end of the season," he added.

“Middlesbrough are a good side with strong players who just missed out on the play-offs last season. So playing them and beating them can only be a positive for us."
