Mowbray's Confidence Ahead Of Wolves

Mowbray's Confidence Ahead Of Wolves

Blackburn did go on a winless run but prior to three in a row few of these games actually involved defeat.

Having beaten relegation rivals Nottingham Forest and drawn with another, Bristol City, Blackburn go into the meeting with former boss Paul Lambert's Wolves looking to climb out of the bottom-three.

Tony Mowbray has spoken of his confidence in his side NOT to lose games pointing to just three defeats - they came in a row - in 12 as a good record for a side second-bottom.

He told the Official Website: 'We've got a strong belief that we aren't going to lose football matches. In twelve games we have lost three, and for a team that was second bottom at the time it is not a bad run of results to go nine games unbeaten.'

Will a win and two draws keep Blackburn in the Championship? Mowbray thinks it could but would prefer two wins and a draw as that would be 'even better.' However, all three ending in victory and Rovers should be able to have 'a good night' after Brentford.

Mowbray added: 'So we have to make sure that the next three are of a similar ilk. It would be nice to win one and draw two and see where those five points take us so be it. If we can win two and draw one then that would be even better. If we win them all then we can all have a good night after the end of the Brentford game.'

It's a clich├ęd approach but going into the first of three cup finals the Blackburn boss has confidence in Rovers' ability to stay in the Championship.

Finishing: 'So lets see where it takes us. I have every belief in the group that we can make life difficult for teams.'
