Elliott Bennett wants the weekend win against Sheffield Wednesday to be the springboard for further success at Leeds United

7 November 2019

Rovers skipper Elliott Bennett is hoping to make it a Yorkshire double this weekend when the team head to Leeds United.

The clash at Elland Road will see Rovers go in search of back-to-back victories following a late win over Sheffield Wednesday last time out.

The team suffered defeat on their last encounter at Leeds' home, with Mowbray's men searching for redemption for that dramatic loss back in December 2018.

Bennett's been a regular feature for Rovers this season and is hoping that the victory against Wednesday can be a turning point in the side's season.

“On the back of the run we’ve been on, to win the way we did is massive, it’s testament to the lads," he told iFollow Rovers.

“We deserved to win in the end. The celebrations amongst the lads, it was great. It was sweeter to get a win in the 93rd minute or whatever it was.

“You need things to go for you in football and the deflection for Bucko’s goal helped us out.

“I felt that we win and lose together and there are a lot of things that get said. The boss often says that it’s our team, and sometimes it’s nice just to have the lads together on the pitch.

“Whoever turns out on a Saturday, whoever gets picked, we’re all mates, all get on, we all work hard for the man next to us.

“The huddle wasn’t planned, it just felt like the right moment. This has got to be the start," he added.

“We have to show that belief, that resilience, that desire every week now.”
