Hull are a dangerous opponent

"At home, we have faith that we can get the job done and ask questions of them"

25 January 2019

Tony Mowbray is wary of the challenge facing his side from an in form Hull City on Saturday, but admits he has so much belief in his own team, who themselves have won each of the last three games in the Champions

Whilst Rovers have had an impressive start to 2019, Hull are unbeaten in their last 10 games in the division, with a key factor behind theat run being Jarrod Bowen.

The 22-year-old has 10 goals in his last nine games for the Tigers, which has helped shift the club from the relegation places to level on points with Rovers in the top half of the table.

And speaking ahead of the clash, Mowbray has faith that his side can keep up their fine run of victories.

"We’ll be up against a team in an amazing run of results," he told iFollow Rovers when previewing the game against Nigel Adkins' side.

"Hopefully the supporters will recognise the importance of Saturday’s game.

“They will come high in confidence, believing they are going to win again. But at home, we have faith that we can get the job done and ask questions of them. We’re looking forward to it.

“I always think that at home we can win every game. I’m sure Nigel is aware of our home record, which goes back a long period of time.

“As I’ve said before, it doesn’t matter about the jersey, it’s about going out there to win. We won’t be going into it with any negativity. We have every belief that we can get a positive result.

“I’ve watched them and we know Bowen is a really good player coming off the right and onto his left peg. On the other side they have [Kamil] Grosicki coming off the left with his right peg.

“They have the Brazilian Evandro and [Chris] Martin up front who knows where the net is."
