JASON Lowe hopes back-to-back wins signifies Blackburn Rovers have turned the corner after they moved out of the bottom three with victory at leaders Newcastle United.

The win at St James’ Park moved Rovers’ to 20th as they continue their steady improvement after a poor start to the season saw them pick up just two points from their opening seven games.

Rovers have now accumulated 17 points from their previous 11 games and while Lowe is happy with the momentum they’re building, he's urged caution on getting carried away by victories over Brentford and Newcastle.

“It’s back-to-back wins for us now which is important, but what we can’t do is get carried away and think we’re the best team in the world because there’s still a lot to build on,” he told the club’s official website.

“There are plenty of games ahead, and plenty that we need to win, it’s a fantastic feeling and a great victory for us and getting the feel good factor back in the dressing room.

"Hopefully we can kick on from this now, but we won’t be getting carried away.

“This squad has got a lot of character and we keep going and hopefully we’ve turned the corner and we can put a bit of consistency together.

“There’s no quick or easy fix, it’s all hard work, hopefully we’re clicking as a team and build on it.

“We just need to keep doing what we’re doing, we know we’re playing well and had spells in games when we’ve played really well, and maybe against the run of play conceded a sloppy goal, but hopefully we’re putting pieces of the jigsaw together.

“Hopefully we can kick on.”

Charlie Mulgrew’s winner 15 minutes from time, his first for the club, handed Rovers all three points as they held on for just a second clean sheet of the season.

But despite the victory coming in front a sold out St James’ Park, Lowe says the rewards for any victory are just the same.

“They are a massive club, but at the end of the day it’s just three points,” he added.

“It doesn’t matter if you’re playing Newcastle at the top of the table or someone lower down, the rewards are the same.

“You treat every game the same.

“The next game is always the toughest, so hopefully we can take the win, and the confidence, in to the next game.”

Rovers had been written off in many quarters before the game, with all of the pre-match talk being about Newcastle going in search of a club record 10th consecutive win.

But skipper Lowe says the confidence in the camp was always high going in to the game.

“We knew we had it in us,” the 25-year-old said.

“We came here with nothing to lose in terms of where we were in the table before the game, and I think everyone but ourselves had written us off.

“That worked in our favour – I think maybe they underestimated us.

“But I’m not going to take anything away from the way that we worked, the work we did with the ball, and I thought we were outstanding to a man and fully deserved the victory.”
