Mowbray: We believe we can win

“It can be 40,000 fans cheering them on or 40,000 shouting and booing if they’re getting beat"

29 March 2019

Despite his side's frustrating recent form, Tony Mowbray says Rovers go into the weekend clash against Aston Villa with plenty of belief.

Mowbray's men have endured a tough time on their travels in recent weeks, with the latest result being an unfortunate defeat at Sheffield Wednesday.

Rovers come up against another in form team on Saturday, with another big crowd behind them, but Mowbray believes a bumper attendance can work for or against Aston Villa.

“With the ball we were pretty good at Sheffield Wednesday, without the ball we weren’t good enough," the boss reflected ahead of the game.

“Aston Villa have a massive amount of players and we come up against another team in good form.

“It’s a club that has come out of the Premier League and there will be around 40,000 supporters in the stadium this weekend.

“It can be 40,000 fans cheering them on or 40,000 shouting and booing if they’re getting beat.

“They’re in good form, beat Middlesbrough 3-0 in the last game and were 4-0 up against Derby earlier this month as well.

“But it’s a game we should relish. We put pressure on ourselves to win any game of course, but we’ll go there believing that we can win, taking the game to them and playing on the front foot," he added.

“We’ll go there and be really positive."
