Rovers boss Tony Mowbray is wary of Hull City's attacking talent, but insists his side will look to stamp their authority on the game at the KCOM Stadium.

Buoyed by Saturday's 1-0 victory over Middlesbrough, Mowbray says Rovers will approach the clash in a confident mood and look to claim a second successive three points.

"We've watched a few of their games," said the manager.

"They went to Brentford at the weekend and got a great result.

"They beat Reading, who have invested quite heavily, if you think of two centre forwards who have cost about £15m.

"For us, it's about us really, rather than the opposition. We went to Fulham and thought we could win there and yet ultimately we didn't, but we gave a decent account of ourselves.

"We'll go to Hull and be as positive as we can, and with a belief that we can go there and win. But we have to be mindful of Jarrod Bowen and Kamil Grosicki. They've also got a bif centre forward, Tom Eaves, who they signed from Gillingham.

"I know Grant McCann from his Peterborough days. They try to play football. He demands of his team that they pass it.

"So we'll go there and compete and hopefully we can make a mark."
