Corry keen to banish Brentford memories

“The manager got us all back on track, brought in some new players to freshen things up and we managed to get promotion from League One at the first time of asking"

Corry Evans wants to banish the memories from our last visit to Griffin Park by beating Brentford when the two sides meet on Saturday.

Rovers won on the day back in May 2017, but it wasn't enough, with other results unfortunately relegating the club on that day.

Things have changed since under Tony Mowbray, with Rovers lurking just outside the play-off places in the Championship.

And although Evans wasn't involved in the last clash in west London, he's eager to ensure Rovers fortunes at the venue change for the better this weekend.

“I wasn’t part of the squad that day, I was injured," the Northern Ireland international midfielder reflected.

"We went there needing a miracle really and we managed to win that day but it wasn’t to be.

“It was a difficult time to be around the club, everyone was bitterly disappointed with the relegation and it took a while to get our heads around it that summer.

“The manager got us all back on track, brought in some new players to freshen things up and we managed to get promotion from League One at the first time of asking. We’ve stepped on again this year and that was our aim.

“Brentford have been on a little run themselves lately and it will be a really tough test for us.”
