After Rovers reached 50 points, with five games remaining, Tony Mowbray set them a target of reaching 60.

Three consecutive wins since then, the boss says he'll be disappointed if they don't reach that tally with two games remaining. Rovers, currently 14th, could finish as high as ninth, or as low as 17th come the final standings.

“We’ll be disappointed if we don’t get 60 points now,” Mowbray said.

“We have Norwich away who can try and win the league, or at least get promoted so that’s a big game for them.

“For us we can go and enjoy it and try and make life difficult for them and see how we get on against the top team in the division.

“I think we gave them a good game here but lost late on, let’s see if we can do the same there.

“We finish with Swansea at home. We expect to win every game at home and we’ll see if we can get above 60 points if we can.”

Mowbray says there is a sense of missed opportunity given the position Rovers had got themselves in to at the end of January, and where they currently sit.

He added:  “There’s a bit of frustration and disappointment, because at the end of January we thought if we could keep pushing as we were, about 1.5 points a game, that we could have got near to 70 points and that would have given us a great chance of getting in the play-offs.

“We fell away, had two months when the team found it hard to get the three points.

“We are back now, our better defensive players are back on the pitch and we’re winning games and the goals against column has looked a lot healthier in the last four games.

“We want to finish the season strong, recruit well and come back stronger next season than we are at the moment.”
