Morten Gamst Pedersen feels it is only a matter of time before Rovers hit the goal trail again after a super unfortunate shut out against Man City last Saturday.
Rovers have been lacking the killer instinct recently but Morten feels the spirit is excellent in the camp and the goals will be on there way.
Nikola Kalinic is getting up to speed and he will no doubt add that finishing touch. But Pedersen himself knows he needs to get up to speed and hit the back of the net far more often.
Morten, speaking to the Lancashire Evening Telegraph said - "I think we deserved more against Manchester City. We deserved at least one point but they scored two goals. We created enough chances but football is about taking the chances and scoring goals.
"We just have to work hard and take the positives out of the Manchester City game. We have to start scoring though because we can`t create so many chances every week and not score goals. I think when we get one, we are going to get lots of goals so lets hope we can get that against Sunderland.
"I think we did well against Manchester City. We had 15 crosses and 15 shots in the first half. That says something about the game but when concede so early and make mistakes, good teams punish you.
"We played well, we had crosses, we tested the goalkeeper but we couldn`t get the ball over the line. We just have to get ready for Sunderland and hopefully get the three points."
Pedersen is now entering the final year of his current contract and knows that talks will continue between agent and club but really wants to concentrate on his play and continue with the impressive performance he put in against City on the opening day.
Morten continued - "I want to score more than one goal this season, that is obviously a target, I am working hard and trying to get in the box and do my shooting and hopefully I can get a goal earlier than last season.
"I am good, I feel well, had a really good summer. We are talking but I try to focus on my football and what happens will come with my agent.
"I just try to focus on what I am doing."
With it being the 'contract year' I am sure Morten will raise his game - thats not me being cyncial - but it is me being honest as he will want to impress, particularly with it being World Cup year as well.
I am backing Rovers to start hitting the onion bag - starting with tomorrows trip to Sunderland.
