Let's get back to work

Lewis Travis is eager for Rovers to return to winning ways straight away on Tuesday night

30 September 2019

Lewis Travis says a contest against Nottingham Forest couldn't come at a better time for Rovers.

Following a narrow home defeat to Luton Town at the weekend, it would be easy for Rovers to mope and feel sorry for themselves.

But the quick turnaround with the fixture list means Tony Mowbray's men will be aiming for redemption from the weekend defeat.

Sabri Lamouchi's high-flying Forest sit in third place in the Championship table coming into the game, but Travis is hoping that the hosts can produce some bouncebackability.

“Everyone was disappointed with the result, but it was good to get my first goal at Ewood," he told iFollow Rovers when reflecting on the 2-1 loss, in which he bagged for Rovers.

“To score in front of the home crowd is all I’ve ever wanted to do. I don’t get into those positions too often, but I saw that Benno was struggling for a pass so I decided to step in and go for goal.

“My eyes definitely lit up and shooting is what I need to add to my game.

“Scoring the goal will only give me more confidence to push on and get more. I’m a passionate guy, so to score at home definitely means a lot.

“It’s just disappointing that we didn’t get the three points. We dominated the ball and the game but the cutting edge wasn’t there for us.

“We can take positives from the game and put them into the next match," he added.

“When you’re waiting all week you sometimes spend all that time beating yourself up, so it’s great that we have a game around the corner.

“Every team in this league is very good, but if we play how we know we can play then we can be successful.

“We want to push ourselves every game. If we all play well then we can go and win.”
