There are plenty of highs and lows over a Championship season, but Jon Dahl Tomasson is keen to maintain a “stable” environment at Rovers.

Recent results have been a prime example of how quickly things can change in football, with Saturday’s 3-0 victory at Stoke City serving as the perfect response to late heartbreak against Preston North End.

Rovers have now won four successive games on the road, but Tomasson is still striving for improvement.

“I try to be very stable in the way I talk to my players,” he told the Lancashire Telegraph. “I speak with them every day and in meetings, it is concrete things.

“When we win and I think it has been a poor game, I will tell them. If they lose and I think they have been totally in control, which has been many games, they will also get that message.

“At the end of the day, it is about being stable and telling the players what I see after a game. We have that attitude and mindset in this building that we want to improve.

“Even if you play very good games, which we have this season, you always have the mindset of still needing to be better.”

Jake Garrett made a positive impact off the bench against the Potters, playing a role in Andrew Moran and Sam Szmodics’ late goals.

Tomasson has been impressed with the midfielder’s development over the past year and hopes he can continue to make the most of any opportunities that come his way.

“It was a great performance at Stoke,” he added. “For example, young Jake Garrett coming off the bench with that impact. He was involved with two goals in a very short period.

“When we talk about development, he is one of those who have developed a lot and changed the way he plays.

“He now has more impact on the games, scoring goals and getting into good positions. He scored three goals in four games in the Carabao Cup and now with two assist as well.

“He is ambitious but sometimes he needs to be patient. I think he is a player we will see more from in the Rovers shirt.”

Rovers have six games packed in before Christmas, starting with tonight's clash with Birmingham at Ewood Park, and Tomasson is relishing the run ahead.

“I love playing games,” he grinned. “I am not playing anymore, but I love to see those games and prepare for them.

“I love to win those games, I hate when we are losing but it is great when we are playing games every third day.

“That is what you want to be part of, it gives me energy. There are a lot of games in general in this competition, which is great when you love the game.”
