Blackburn manager Gary Bowyer has urged his squad to use Thursday’s victory over Leeds as a “springboard” for the rest of their campaign.

Rovers, who are priced at 21.00 to get promoted, have struggled to find any early-season form with the 2-0 win over Leeds only their third of the campaign and first on the road.

Bowyer’s side not only ended a run of three games without a victory on Thursday but addressed a period which had seen them fail to hit the back of the net for three outings.

Blackburn, who were able to take advantage of a Leeds side in transition under new boss Steve Evans, find themselves sitting 15th in the Championship table after 14 games.

The Ewood Park side have the opportunity to build some momentum off the back of their Elland Road triumph when they travel to face Birmingham on Tuesday.

Bowyer insists that the confidence has always been there in his squad but felt that they were just not getting the luck required.

The 44-year-old has called on his men to “push on” and hopes they can now start to climb the table with over a quarter of the campaign gone.

Bowyer said: “We’ve maintained the confidence and the belief in the players and the staff, and just concentrated on the process and focused on what we’re good at.

“It’s only one game and we’ve got to build on that and use it as a springboard, this group can really push on.”
