Tony Mowbray feels Rovers have given themselves a platform from which to build following the international break.

Rovers return to action against Millwall tomorrow having picked up seven points from their opening six matches.

The boss feels they could easily have had more, but with four home matches in their next six, is looking for Rovers to kick on.

More goals are on the wishlist of Mowbray, with Rovers yet to find the net from open play in their three home matches, and having scored five times in their opening six fixtures.

“I think we deserved a few more points but we got what we got. We won a few tight games, lost a few tight games,” the Rovers boss said.

“I think it’s a platform for us to move forward from, whether it was 10 points, four points, or the seven points we’ve got, it’s a platform to move on from.

“After the first international break we have a great desire to build on the platform we’ve got.

“There’s an opportunity coming up, there are some home games over the course of the next month coming up that we have to target, starting against Millwall.

Millwall have lost just once in their opening six matches, away at Fulham, and have taken points on the road at Middlesbrough and West Brom, who they also beat in the Carabao Cup.

So while Rovers have eyes on three points to kickstart their season, Mowbray knows the threat posed by Neil Harris’ Lions.

But he has backed his attacking players to come good and find the back of the net with greater regularity.

He added: “It’s a very difficult game. Millwall have been away to the Riverside and to the Hawthorns and got draws, they have beaten Sheffield Wednesday and Preston.

“You know what you’re going to get when you play Millwall.

“They have a huge physicality in Matt Smith, Jake Cooper, Alex Pearce, huge individuals who from set plays can damage any team in the division.

“I would expect a game where we can have plenty of the ball over the 90 minutes and as we’ve been working on, we have to find the answers because we haven’t score enough goals on a regular basis in the opening six league games.

“We have to get back to scoring twos, threes and fours, rather than hoping to win 1-0.

“While it’s always important to try and keep clean sheets and you’ll always take a 1-0 because the games are always so tight in this division, but we do have firepower in our ranks and we have to find a way to get the best out of that.

“As we move forward hopefully we can score more goals and entertain our fans at home.”
