Blackburn manager Tony Mowbray says that it is extremely important that the club keep up the momentum between now and the end of the season. Blackburn are looking to get promoted back into the Championship, and they have been involved in a promotion battle so far this season. After the end of the New Year fixtures, Blackburn find themselves just outside the top two places. Tony Mowbray will like his team to get into the top two since it would get automatic promotion to the Championship, but there is not a significant gap between the likes of Shrewsbury Town. Hence, Mowbray says that it is vital for Blackburn to stay in this position so as to get back into the second division.
Blackburn Rovers manager Tony Mowbray believes luck and big decisions went against his team during the Checkatrade Trophy match with Rochdale on Tuesday night.
His team eventually lost 5-3 in a penalty shootout meaning the Blues future in the tournament rests on the outcome of the other game in Group C.
Rovers went ahead through whiz kid Joe Nuttall who notched his third in three games since being promoted into the first-team after impressing in the under-23 side.
They then had Scott Wharton sent off for a second yellow after a clumsy tackle. Mowbray questioned the dismissal but put it down to naivety and believes Wharton will learn from it.
Jordan Slew equalised for Rochdale and it looked odds-on that they would make their numerical advantage count but to their credit, Rovers held on to force the spot-kick lottery but it wasn’t to be their night in the end.

As a result, Mowbray's side recorded their fourth consecutive league victory for the first time in nearly a decade. The Rovers return to Ewood Park after two games on the road, and the manager knows that his side will have to perform at a similar vein against the Dons.
Blackburn Rovers managed to keep their good current run by beating Scunthorpe 1-0 away from home. This win makes it the fourth successive victory for Blackburn Rovers after a difficult start to the season.

However, there was a flurry of goals in the second half and it resulted in Blackburn losing the game 3-2. It was a major disappointment for Owen Coyle’s team especially after having managed a spectacular win over Newcastle United in the previous match. Just when it seemed that Blackburn would build on this victory, they have lost momentum once again.
