TONY Mowbray says Rovers will ‘look to get after’ third-placed Fulham as they aim to continue their impressive home record.

With four of the current top six still to travel to Ewood, Mowbray says Rovers’ results in those matches could dictate where his side will end this season.

Third-placed Fulham arrive in East Lancashire today within three points of the automatic promotion spots and in fine form with three wins and a draw from their last four matches. But equally Rovers are unbeaten in their last four and haven’t tasted defeat on home soil since September.

Rovers have aspirations of their own, as they look to close the gap on the top six, and Mowbray says they can take inspiration from their performances on home soil since promotion back to the Championship.

“We look forward to welcoming Leeds, West Brom, Fulham to our stadium and believe we can beat anyone on our day,” Mowbray told the Lancashire Telegraph.

“They are big games for us, big tests, and maybe these games will dictate where we end up this season.

“I’m not sure there are many teams where I’ve felt we’ve done well just to hang on.

“Fulham is a classic test for us, at their best they’re a really talented group of players who keep the ball, ask questions, move it around, create chances.

“If we can come out of it with a positive result, as we have having beaten Brentford for the last two years, and they’re a really good team, we have found a way to beat them a couple of years on the bounce, beat West Brom.

“Aston Villa got a 93rd minute equaliser from a free kick, we beat Leeds last year and have generally given the top teams problems.

“Fulham fits in to that category, they’re a good team but we don’t fear anyone.

“It’s a game where we’ll look to get after them and they’ll know they’ve been in a football match by the end of it and hopefully we can take the points.”

Rovers have been the Championship’s fast starters so far this season, with 11 goals in the opening 15 minutes of matches.

They have scored first in 19 of their 30 Championship matches, and led in 20, including last weekend’s 1-1 draw at Middlesbrough.

And Mowbray says turning winning positions in to victories is part of their continued development.

“That’s something we have taken a lot about. I speak a lot about continual improvement of the club,” he added.

“We are pretty aware of a lot of stats that we’re trying to correct.

“We’re way ahead of anyone when it comes to scoring inside 15 minutes this season, why can’t we sustain that for 90 minutes? It’s a question we have to ask.

“Some of that might be in the make-up of the group, sometimes if you’re playing Stewy Downing or a Danny Graham you wouldn’t expect them to do the physical side of the game of a 20-year-old, but then they might not be able to do the bring the quality or the knowledge of those players.

“It’s a balance of how the team functions, but moving forward we will try to be at the top end of every statistic, whether that’s intensity, distances covered, shots on target, we’re trying to improve the football club with processes that we work on every day.

“It’s a tough journey, you can’t just change everything overnight.”
