Mowbray: Together as one

"Just keep doing what we do, keep calm, don’t panic and we’ll be okay"

28 February 2019

Tony Mowbray is backing his side to get back to winning ways sooner rather than later.

Rovers had an enjoyable January with a 100% winning record in the opening month of the year, but went on to endure a frustrating February.
 
But Mowbray's hopeful that fortune can fall in Rovers' favour from March onwards, with a tricky test upcoming on Saturday afternoon with a trip to Rotherham United.
 
“We need to stay strong, stay together, and keep working hard," was the message from the boss to iFollow Rovers ahead of the game in Yorkshire.
 
"We need to be mindful of some circumstances as well.
 
“At the moment we’re without our most powerful defender, I’d have to say. He’s a loss to us because of his power, dominance, speed and mobility.
 
“He plays alongside [Charlie] Mulgrew, who has that craft and culture. There have been misses this season, one or two goals have been disappointing.
  
“We have to understand that we haven’t been a bad team overnight. Just keep doing what we do, keep calm, don’t panic and we’ll be okay.
 
“When you get into runs of defeats, you can’t hide from them. But in some of those defeats the performances have been pretty good. We’ve not been outplayed by every team," he added.
 
“We could easily have won a couple of those games that we ended up losing."
