Mowbray: We're always up for the fight

The boss says his side can take on anyone in the division and beat them

3 October 2019

Tony Mowbray has plenty of belief in his squad, and says his side don't fear anyone in the Championship following a solid start to the season.

Mowbray's men battled back from the weekend defeat at home to Luton Town by earning a point at Ewood Park against Nottingham Forest on Tuesday night.

Rovers sit four points from the play-offs after 10 games played, ahead of this weekend's trip to London to take on Mark Warburton's Queens Park Rangers.

“However well you play, however many passes you make or shots you take, it’s about the result and winning games," the boss admitted to iFollow Rovers.

“Sometimes it’s nice to play terrible and win a game 1-0 with a goal coming off someone’s backside.

“If you don’t play well and you’re losing games, it’s really tough on a team’s confidence. If you’re playing well and losing games, the players can still retain belief that the results will happen.

“Over the next 34 or 35 games we will win a lot of them and hopefully get a points total that beats our tally from last season.

“Let’s see where it takes us. We won’t get carried away and say that we’ll run away with the league, but we will compete with every team in this league.

“I thought Leeds would be the strongest team in the division, and we’ve played West Brom and competed well with them," he added.

“We have to challenge ourselves and look forward to the next challenge, which comes with a trip to London this weekend.

“We went there last year and won, they have a new manager, but we believe we can go there and match them at the very least.”
