After a tricky start that began with back-to-back defeats against Charlton Athletic and Fulham, Mowbray's men got back on track with victories over Middlesbrough and Hull, prior to a 0-0 home stalemate with Cardiff.

Rovers narrowly went down to a defeat at West Bromwich Albion before the international break, which left the boss flat going into the two week rest period.

But with the batteries recharged following a gruelling league and cup schedule, Mowbray's keen to build momentum as soon as possible, with three games to come this month, two of which are at Ewood Park.

“I'm frustrated because we've lost three games of the first month," Mowbray revealed when reflecting on the first half-dozen of Championship encounters to iFollow Rovers.

“I think we're going to get better, in fact I'm sure we will. We are a work in progress and we have a run of fixtures coming up, with a couple of home games in there, where we're targeting points.

“Let's see where we are after a dozen games rather than only six league games.

“With a dozen games you'll have play opponents who are up there and down there in the league table.

“In the opening six games we've played the likes of Middlesbrough, Fulham, Cardiff and West Brom, who are all tough opponents," he added.

“We have to keep going, and I'm sure we'll push on, build momentum and have a good season.”
