Get right behind us, urges Bennett

“If we can get a few more people back then that would be brilliant. But the ones that do turn up really back us to the hilt"

30 January 2019

Stand in skipper Elliott Bennett wants Rovers' fans to help the team to a play-off charge from now until the end of the season.

Rovers have won each of their last four Championship games since the turn of the year, with clean sheets in ll of their last three encounters.
 
And ahead of a trip to Griffin Park to tackle Brentford on Saturday, Bennett and the boys want your backing both on the road and at Ewood Park for the remainder of the campaign.
 
“We have a group of lads that are really ambitious," the versatile 30-year-old told iFollow Rovers.
 
"Everyone wants to get to the top and be the best version of themselves. The camaraderie can take us a long way, and added to the quality we have, you’ll always have a chance.
 
“We’ll keep working hard on the training ground, keep giving the manager headaches and see how we go.
 
“We’ll keep grinding and see if we can keep up the good start to 2019."
 
Rovers form on home turf in particular has been excellent throughout Tony Mowbray's reign as manager, and with the rest of the season promising to be an exciting one, Bennett wants as many supporters on board to enjoy the ride.
 
“I think back to last season when we played Oxford at home and it was an absolutely amazing atmosphere," he added.
 
“If we can get a few more people back then that would be brilliant. But the ones that do turn up really back us to the hilt and they can see what we’re trying.
 
“Sometimes we don’t play the best football, but the effort and the work rate, everyone pulling in the right direction, all the fans want to see is a committed group of players putting everything on the line."
