Tony Mowbray says there will be no inferiority complex from Rovers when they face another of the division’s form sides.

For the third game in a row Rovers face another team boasting an unbeaten record, with Bristol City having won seven games in a row in all competitions.

Lee Johnson’s side have moved in to the top six on the back of that run, while Rovers saw their winning start to 2019 come to an emphatic end in a 5-2 defeat at Brentford last week.

Back at Ewood Park, Mowbray wants his players to hit the heights they did last time out against Hull City when ending the Tigers’ impressive run with a season’s best performance in a 3-0 win.

Rovers will give the visitors respect, but Mowbray knows no team will fancy a trip to Ewood where Rovers have won six of their last nine Championship fixtures.

“They have won seven straight games, but we said that when we played Hull,” said Mowbray, whose side were beaten 4-1 at Ashton Gate in September.

“There will be no inferiority complex from our team, we will be going to win the game and play as we do at home.

“I think it’s a difficult place to come Ewood Park and Bristol City will know that.

“We will look to compete against a team that’s in form, playing with confidence, keeping clean sheets and winning games.

“When I have watched them they have some good players.

“But it’s a game we can win if we play at our best and that’s what we’ll look to do and ask questions all over the pitch and see how they deal with it.”

Mowbray already has one win over his Bristol City counterpart this week, pipping Johnson to the Championship manager of the month prize for January.

A run of four consecutive wins, including three clean sheets, saw Mowbray rewarded with the accolade.

Rovers bounced back from three consecutive defeats to end 2018, with a run of four straight wins over West Brom, Millwall, Ipswich and Hull.

And after a heavy defeat on their travels last time out, the boss is anticipating another reaction from his side against the Robins tomorrow afternoon.

“January was a good month, on the back of a difficult Christmas period, and the team had to react,” Mowbray said.

“The team showed what they are all about, but then we were slapped in the face at Brentford, so it’s time to react again in what is another difficult game.

“It’s one we should look forward to, a huge challenge for us.

“We did it against Hull when we managed to find a performance and let’s see if we can get another three points again.”
