After seeing his side win 4-2 against Oxford United Rovers boss Tony Mowbray was praised the players and fans at his after match press conference
“It’s about getting the points. We had a tough game away from home at the weekend and it was important to start fast and not be one of those teams that has a good day and a bad day. “It was important to put a marker down early and do that. “We got our rewards from some dead balls and our pressing. It was a positive start which was important because I knew they were a good team with the ball. “We dropped a bit off the intensity as the half wore on and you could see they started to pop it through the lines. “We knew how tough the game was going to be, we started bright, got the goals and managed to control it up to the end.”
Mowbray urged his team to build on the 2 consecutive away wins “We need to keep going, looking at the next hurdle infront of us which is Bristol Rovers and then we have another tough one at Blackpool so it’s none stop. “We have to make sure the intensity stays there and utilise everyone and they will all have a part to play. “We have to create a pressure on ourselves to get results and with the greatest of respect to Oxford and Bury we have to believe that we are going there to win those games and the players have to believe it."
The Rovers boss also had special praise for the travelling fans “The fans were amazing and I’m glad we’ve given them something to cheer about tonight. "I know how much they’ve suffered over the last few years. Away day victories are fantastic, they’ve paid hard-earned money and given up time to be here. "They’ll get home late tonight, so huge thanks to them."
Rovers are back in action on Saturday as they welcome Bristol Rovers to Ewood Park.
