The buzz is back around the place

Three wins in a week has seen Rovers shoot up the league and Bradley Dack's been crucial to that run

4 December 2019

Bradley Dack says things are looking up for Rovers following a week to remember for Tony Mowbray's side.

Derby County visit Ewood Park this weekend as Rovers go in search of starting December as they finished November.

It's been an excellent last few weeks for Mowbray's men, who won four of their five encounters in the penultimate month of 2019.

Dack's been crucial to a run of three successive victories, scoring four times in a winning week that saw Rovers gain maximum points from Barnsley and Brentford at Ewood Park and the latest trip to Stoke City.

“I think we were 10 points outside the play-offs this time last week and now it’s just four points in the space of only a few games," the playmaker told iFollow Rovers.

“It’s a tight league, we just have to find that consistency and go on a run looking to get into those top six positions. That was our aim at the start of the season and it hasn’t changed.

“You always have to try and back yourself. I never had any doubt that the group we have is good enough to get there, it’s just about getting that run of results together.

“You have to go eight or nine unbeaten with four or five victories in there at least. We know what we have to do.

“On our day we can beat anyone, we showed that on Wednesday night. If we play like that most weeks then we really can beat most teams in this league.

“Leeds and West Brom are the two top sides at the moment and anyone that finishes above them I expect to get promoted.

“The rest of the play-off places are up for grabs and can be taken by anyone."

This week has allowed a rampant Rovers to recharge the batteries ahead of a hectic festive schedule, and Dack's keen to keep the good times coming in the lead up to Christmas.

“It was a relentless week, but three games in a week is probably best for a player because it feels the games are coming thick and fast and your focus is only on the next opponent," the 25-year-old added.

“You can feel the buzz around the place after the last few wins. It’s been a brilliant week to come into training and working ahead to the next game."
