Evans eager to get one over his old employers

“It's nice to see a former team doing well, but it's a game I'm looking forward to and we're hoping to beat them"

26 January 2019

Corry Evans insists he'll be doing all he can to help Rovers to a fourth successive victory in the Championship when Tony Mowbray's men tackle Hull City this afternoon.

Evans, who appeared 96 times in all competitions for the Tigers before signing for Rovers, has been a key cog for the side this term.

He's played 26 times for the club so far in 2018-19, but admits a clash with Hull could be one of the toughest encounters of the season.

Nigel Adkins' side are on a 10-game unbeaten run in the Championship coming into the game, but Evans adds that Rovers themselves are in buoyant mood following a 100% winning league record in 2019.

"They are on a good run and we know it will be a difficult game, a tough test," he told iFollow Rovers ahead of the match against his old club.

“But at home we back ourselves and if we want to be in and around the play-offs then it's vital that we beat the sides around us.

“I remember going there earlier in the season and winning 1-0. The fans weren't too happy with things and there was a bit of unrest there at the time.

“I don't know what's happened, but they've managed to pick things up and turn things around.

“It's nice to see a former team doing well, but it's a game I'm looking forward to and we're hoping to beat them.

“It'll be a different game to the Ipswich match, but the gaffer will ensure we work on our tactics and shape a bit more with no midweek game. We're all looking forward to it.”
