Mowbray's men go in search of a third successive 1-0 victory as the team aim to complete a week to remember following victories over Middlesbrough and away to Hull City.

And the boss says that the Rovers supporters will have to play their part on Saturday against Neil Warnock's Bluebirds, who are fresh from relegation from the Premier League.

“Even when the team were up against it against Middlesbrough for about 20 minutes, I think the fans realised that the team needed them to get through it," he said when talking about the influence from the stands to iFollow Rovers.

“It works both ways though, and the team need to excite the crowd and make them enjoy the experience. They do that by creating chances, having crosses flash across the box, scoring goals.

“When the team are struggling and need help, they need the fans. In my tenure here I’ve always felt that the fans really do help the team through the good bits and the bad bits.

“The big thing is to get the numbers through the gates, because even a few thousand in the ground makes a massive difference. Going from 12,000 supporters to 15,000 makes a huge difference.

“If the team can find results and threaten up the top of the table then there’s no reason why the crowds can’t continue to build and continue to enjoy the football."

A three-game week may see some rotation from the boss this weekend, but he says every player is ready for the battle.

“The performance on the Saturdays and the Tuesday nights are the result of the hours and hours that the players put in during the week on the training ground," he added.

“If it doesn’t come together, for whatever reason, you lose matches and people question you."
