Huge strides since our last trip to Griffin Park

"The plan would be to make sure we're not scrambling and the minimum requirement somewhere moving forward would be top six"

2 February 2019

Tony Mowbray says he sees a huge difference in Rovers both on and off the pitch since we last made the journey to Brentford's Griffin Park.

It was a disappointing day all round when Rovers suffered relegation at the Bees' home back in May 2017, despite winning the game against Dean Smith's outfit.

But almost two years later Rovers are in a better place. The team come into the clash just three points off the play-offs and with four wins from four games in 2019.

So how does Mowbray compare things?

"The difference in the club? Hopefully we're on the up," he told iFollow Rovers.

"Then, we were scrambling to try and stay up that season. It's something I hope is in the past for this club.

"What we're trying to do at this moment is scrambling to try and get out of the Championship and into the Premier League.

"The plan would be to make sure we're not scrambling and the minimum requirement somewhere moving forward would be top six.

"Depending on the relegated teams, how strong they stay, because some teams come down from the Premier League, don't lose any of their players, keep the huge salaries and bounce back straight away.

"It's then difficult to live with those teams, but the ambition for our club would be to make sure we're at least competing in the top six every season to try and get out of this division."
