We believe that we can beat The Bees

"We’ll pick a team that we think can be really competitive and try to get another three points"

26 November 2019

Tony Mowbray believes his side can beat anyone on home turf and is backing his players to triumph over Brentford on Wednesday evening.

Mowbray's men go in search of a third successive Ewood Park victory as they look to follow up on wins over Sheffield Wednesday and Barnsley in East Lancashire.

The encounter comes just a few days after that latest triumph, and Mowbray admits he has decisions to make on a couple of players with knocks.

But whatever team he does select, the boss is confident in making it another happy home matchday.

“There’s one or two after the weekend who are having tests, but I’m not going to tell you which ones and give the plans away," he revealed to iFollow Rovers ahead of the game.

“We’ll see if they can get through training today and we’ll pick a team that we think can be really competitive and try to get another three points.

“[Joe] Rothwell’s one of those players and there’s one or two others to be honest. We’ll see.

“It’s still been a tough week for us because when you break down the victory there was still lots that wasn’t right.

“I don’t want to build Brentford up because I really believe that we can beat them.

“But they’ve won five of the last six, scoring three at Wigan, three at QPR, three somewhere else as well.

“They’re a decent football team who have some very good individual threats, particularly with [Said] Benrahma and [Ollie] Watkins, who can hurt you," he added.

“They have a lot of foreign players who a lot of people wouldn’t have heard of, but they’re very technical, very talented and move the ball around well.

“They’re organised and can pick you off. It’s a test for us and a good challenge for us. At home we can beat anyone on our day, so let’s hope Wednesday is our day."
