Stick with us, urges Tony

"We'll keep the same work ethic and the same beliefs, but we'll be better because we'll strengthen in some key positions"

24 February 2019

Tony Mowbray has urged Rovers' fans to keep backing the players for the remainder of the campaign.

There were 1,232 visiting supporters at St Andrew's on Saturday, as Rovers picked up a point to finish a frustrating February.

Goals from Charlie Mulgrew and Danny Graham earned a hard fought point for Mowbray's men against Garry Monk's Birmingham side.

And speaking afterwards, the boss says it's important to keep the spirits high going into the summer.

“I'm trying to be positive and not too down," he told iFollow Rovers.

"We came out of League One and this team is practically the same team that put in the shift to get us back to the Championship last season.

“They've been asked to go to the well again and I think they're running at maximum, their foot is right on the gas.

“We have to keep going for another dozen games and see where it takes us. Don't be disappointed if we don't make it [the play-offs] this season.

“We will strengthen in the summer, we'll keep the same work ethic and the same beliefs, but we'll be better because we'll strengthen in some key positions," he added.

“The fans should look forward to that. This season the fans should continue to support the team, as long as you get the effort, which they would have seen today after the first 20 minutes, playing on the front foot.

“I guarantee that moving forward we will play on the front foot and will try and beat every team we play.

“The fans pay a lot of money to come and watch us, spending the day away from their families. They just want to see their team give everything they've got, win, lose or draw.”
