Lewis Holtby hopes three wins in the space of seven days can help bring about a change in mindset as Rovers bid to climb the Championship table.

A late Bradley Dack goal helped Rovers see of bottom side Barnsley and he was back at it against Brentford, finishing off a fine team move in the win over Brentford.

Dack was on target again, and had a hand in Sam Gallagher’s winner, as Rovers made it three wins in a week to round off November where they ended up with 12 points from a possible 15.

That lifted them to 11th in the table, and Holtby hopes a shift in mentality can help Rovers continue to build on their recent momentum.

“It’s a mindset, football is always about mentality,” he said.

“When you lose a game you get doubts here and there, but when you win you’re buzzing and don’t feel you can get beat.

“Win two or three games in a row and you don’t believe you can lose again.

“We need to get that mindset going and believe that no-one can score against us and we can win on that matchday.

“For us the mindset has to be important. It’s going to be tough but the squad size will also matter in this period because I think we have good depth of some good players that can have good impacts.”

Holtby came off the bench in each of Rovers’ last two wins, having made his fourth start since signing as a free agent in September against Barnsley.

The German international is yet to complete 90 minutes since his move, but his professionalism towards ensuing he’s in the best shape possible has been praised by Mowbray.

Holtby is working with a personal trainer in his time away from the club, and also takes part in cryotherapy to decrease the possibility of injuries.

He says it is something has done throughout his career and believes it can only be a benefit.

“I have always done and tried to stay fit,” the 29-year-old explained.

“I have a good sense of my body, when niggles are coming in, or I feel that there are tough weeks coming up, your body needs to be ready for the action

“I see the sheets and with the training and games coming up, especially when you do a lot of running, you need to be robust, need to be fit and you always gain for it, especially over time.

“I didn’t have a normal pre-season with a club, so I need to do some extra stuff to maintain that.”
