Tony Mowbray wants to give the people of Blackburn a team to be proud of as they bid for a fourth consecutive win.

Rovers host already-relegated Bolton today (3pm) after back-to-back victories on the road followed a home success over Derby.

That came after a run of nine defeats in 11, with Rovers returning to the form which saw them challenging the top six in January.

That is Mowbray’s aim for next season, with plans already in place to travel to India next month to meet with the club’s owners.

He said: “I want the people of Blackburn, who have had a tough run these last few years, to enjoy watching their team.

“Hopefully we can build again in the summer to make us stronger and try and threaten the top end of the table.

“That is our aim. I will go to India after the last match of the season and talk to the owners and see what their ambition for the club is.”

Bolton arrive at Ewood Park four days after their relegation to League One was confirmed. They have lost six of their last seven matches, but Mowbray has great respect for Wanderers boss Phil Parkinson and knows his players will have to be professional if they are to extend their winning run.

He said: “It is a dangerous game for us and we have to make sure we apply ourselves properly.

“If we are looking for momentum, it sometimes happens that already relegated teams go out and express themselves, push men forward, and it can be dangerous.

“We have to be professional, it’s a derby, there should be a good atmosphere and it’s a game we’re looking forward to,” he added.

“We will make some changes but be respectful to the opposition.

“Phil Parkinson is a very good manager and they have some managers.

“I have managed a few of their players, (Sammy) Ameobi, Andrew Taylor, David Wheater, Jason Lowe, although he’s out injured at the moment.

“They have good honest players and I’m sure they will come and give a good accounts of themselves.”

Rovers will be hoping fora good crowd at Ewood Park, with almost 1,000 fans having travelled to QPR despite the travel disruption and high ticket prices.

“It was amazing to see,” said Mowbray.

“The away support has been amazing since the day I walked in at Burton two years ago.

“It doesn’t surprise me to see them travel in such big numbers.

“Euston station being shut is a problem so to come in cars and on coaches, it’s a huge thank you from me to those supporters for making the trip. They seemed to enjoy their day.”
