A record of scoring in every match so far this season is one Tony Mowbray is looking to continue against Hull City tonight.

The Tigers have struggled for goals themselves, failing to score in their five matches since the 4-1 opening day win at Preston North End, but have kept back-to-back clean sheets against Swansea City and Bournemouth.

Mowbray wants his side to find the intensity and creativity required to overcome the Tigers as they have in their most recent four meetings in which they have netted eight goals without reply.

However, Mowbray sees threats in the Hull ranks that Rovers, who haven’t kept a clean sheet in their last 16 matches, will have to be aware of.

“They have had two clean sheets in their last two matches against Swansea and Bournemouth and the opening day they went to Preston and stuck four past them,” Mowbray said.

“They’ve struggled to score in recent games but have been pretty solid and they can make it hard for you, they work extremely hard, very organised and they carry a threat on the transition with Lewis-Potter who is an exceptionally talented footballer and Wilks on the other side and Magennis up front.

“I would hope we can ask a lot of questions of them and it’s whether we can break them down. The last two teams they’ve played have struggled and they will take confidence from that defensive stability they have got but it’s an opportunity for us.

“We have scored in every game so far and let’s see if we can keep that going.”

Only six sides in the division have scored in all six of their matches so far.

Like Rovers did in 2017/18, Hull won promotion at the first opportunity after their relegation, with Richie Smallwood captaining them to the third tier title.

“It’s not easy, as a lot of clubs have found,” Mowbray said of bouncing straight back.

“A great credit to them, the addition of Richie Smallwood last year was really important for them.

“I did speak to their manager about Richie and talking about Trav (Lewis Travis), Richie has very similar qualities about wanting to be a winner and individual battles. He’s made of the right stuff.

“I think it was great signing for them.

“He hasn’t played the last couple of games for them, I would expect him to be playing in this game and we wish him well in his career after this game.”
