BLACKBURN Rovers season is one win away from taking off, according to manager Gary Bowyer.

Rovers have tasted victory just twice in 13 Championship fixtures so far this season, but Bowyer has seen enough encouragement in their performances to suggest the turning point could arrive with three points at Leeds tonight.

And Bowyer said his team were determined to ‘put things right’ after suffering a derby defeat against Burnley last weekend.

“The way they’ve been asked to play this season and gone about it is nothing but a credit to them,” Bowyer said of the efforts of his players.

“It’s just being that little bit more ruthless but there’s a real determination amongst the group to put it right.

“We’re one win away from really taking off. It will back up, for the players especially, that how we’re going about it is the right way.

“I honestly believe that. They’ve really got a fantastic way of playing, a fantastic belief in what they’re doing, it’s just the fine margins at the moment.

“If we go and win at Leeds then this group could take off.

“The level of performances, backed with a win, will really give everybody a boost. We have to back it up and if we can back it up there’s nothing to stop this team going on a powerful run.”

Bowyer and his squad have been insistent this week that they have not had due reward for their performances, while accepting they need to be more ruthless in front of goal, having failed to find the back of the net in the last three games.

Their disappointing start to the season has left them just two points above the relegation zone and three above bottom placed Bolton.

But despite their lowly position at the moment Bowyer insists sixth-placed Birmingham, 12 points better off than Rovers, are not ‘miles away’, as he backed his team to come out fighting after a difficult week.

“I don’t think the top six seem miles away. The beauty of this league is that it can quickly turn around,” he said.

“At this moment in time it doesn’t look as good as what it should do with the level of performances, but we’re very close to turning it around and sitting nicely and being ready to go into the next part of the season.

“The players are determined to come out fighting harder, that’s backed by myself and the staff and that’s what we’ll do.”

And Bowyer insisted he is feeling no more pressure than normal despite Rovers’ rocky start to the season.

“The pressure is there every day, it’s been there from day one, from when you first take the job and it’s no different to any other manager,” he said.

“We’ve just got to make sure we conduct ourselves properly and keep going.”
