Boss delighted with spirited victory

Tony Mowbray gives his reaction to the brilliant victory over Reading on Saturday

21 September 2019

Another game and another win in September saw Rovers continue their 100% winning record in the second month of the season.

Whilst the first two outings in August ended in disappointment, the second month of the campaign has proved to be more enjoyable for Mowbray's men, who backed up last weekend's win over Millwall with another three point haul away at Reading.

Bradley Dack was the man who produced the goods to register another victory, slotting home from close range after Adam Armstrong had tremendously given the visitors the lead.

Although John Swift pulled a goal back for Jose Gomes' hosts, Rovers showed their resilience to put their bodies on the line and earn another hard fought win.

“I’m delighted with the points because to win away in the Championship is always tough," Mowbray began when reflecting on the 2-1 win over The Royald.

“I thought we started the game tremendously well, in fact we started both halves tremendously well. We were on the front foot and were at our best in the first half hour of the first half.

“The team changed overnight through illness and injury and for the team to take on board the information from a 20 minute meeting earlier today, full credit has to go to them.

“They’re a wonderful group of lads who care about each other, work for each other. They always go to the well and give it their best.

“Tosin [Adarabioyo] picked up an injury in training yesterday and Joe Rothwell was the only one of a few who felt unwell, who was vomiting," he revealed.

“It took us ages to get here and it was a long, long drive so I’m delighted that the lads got the reward for their hard work and endeavour.

“We have a week to prepare for the next game, at home, and it’s another opportunity for us to get three more points.”
