Mowbray: Recent results a reward for our fine work

The boss is hoping to wrap up a brilliant September by winning this weekend

26 September 2019

Tony Mowbray believes the back-to-back September wins have arrived because of the intense work put in on the training pitches at the Senior Training Centre.

After a tricky start to the campaign, Mowbray's men have bounced back and come into this weekend's game against Luton Town on the back of wins over Millwall and Reading.

And speaking ahead of the clash against The Hatters, Mowbray is keen for Rovers to keep their feet on the ground and to continue working at the same levels.

But he admits that Luton won't be pushovers, despite the Bedfordshire side's current position in the table.

“We’re a pretty grounded group and they know that what allows you to win football matches is the work that you put in during the week," he told iFollow Rovers in the lead up to the weekend battle.

“The training sessions get you through and give you the best chance to win. It allows you to go out on a Saturday ready and prepared to get the job done.

“Every team has its dangers, but also an achilles heel. Luton are a good side who have had the bounce of promotion.

“I remember watching the opening game of the season against Middlesbrough on a Friday night and it was a 3-3 draw. It epitomised where they are in conceding a few goals but also producing that goal threat at the other end as well.

“We have to be mindful of that. On transitions they leave men upfield and they can attack you very quickly if you do lose the ball," he added.

“The goals for us weren’t flowing at the start but we’ve improved and have moved the ball better. The foundations were there and there was never any fear that it was going to be a long season for us.

“But after two wins in a row, we’re not getting carried away. We’re going to continue the hard work and hope that the foundations will help us get better results rather than poor results."
