Tony Mowbray believes the visit of Huddersfield Town is 'a dangerous game' for Rovers, but one he feels they can come out on top in.

The Rovers boss is a fan of the work of the Cowley brothers, Danny and Nicky, who took over the reins at the John Smith's Stadium last month following the sacking of Jan Siewert, after winning two promotions at Lincoln.

Despite losing their opening two matches, they bring their Huddersfield side to Ewood on the back of a three match unbeaten run which includes wins over Stoke and Hull before the international break.

Recently relegated from the Premier League, Mowbray knows the quality they possess, despite a tricky start to life back in the Championship, but is calling on his players to find a performance level that will see them come out on top in the lunchtime game.

“They are nice lads, we’ve had a lot of conversations with them in recent years, they’ve tried to take a few of our players," he said.

“They had Scotty Wharton on loan a few times and chased Joe Nuttall for long periods. We played them in pre-season a few years ago.

“I like them, they are articulate, thoughtful, clever and they have a teaching mentality so their team will be very well organised as I’ve seen from their recent games I’ve watched.

“We know it’s a tough game.

“They have some players who played in the Premier League last year with good physical attributes and they have raw materials to work with.

“It’s a dangerous game for us. They’re coming on the back of a couple of victories but for us it’s an opportunity at home to find a performance level that’s too much for the opposition to cope with and hopefully get the three points.”
