Blackburn Rovers WILL NOT be taking VK Vetra lightly when they are faced in the Intertoto Cup 3rd Round 1st Leg on Sunday evening, with Mark Hughes warning his players against complacency.
The vast majority of people expect Rovers to win this tie, and win it comfortably, and although this may prove the case it is essential that the club are watchful of their opponents (even though they are currently sixth out of ten sides in their Lithuanian League!!!) and complacency doesn't set in, as we know all too well from many results last season what happens when this happens!!!
The Rovers Boss told the Official Blackburn Rovers Website:
"We can't afford to (be complacent) they are right in the middle of their season, they've played eighteen games whereas we've had two, so we've got to be mindful of that.
"In pre-season games even the fact that an opposition side possibly had a couple of games more than you can sometimes make a marked difference. So we are aware that match fitness wise and match play wise they could be very much up to speed whereas we are not quite there at the moment.
"But we feel the games we've had have been good ones, two decent games that have brought us on so we full expect us at the weekend to improve again."
As you would expect the Scouts have watched the Lithuanian side several times, Sparky added:
"We've had them watched, they are a nice footballing side, they try and get the ball down and play."
