Blackburn boss Tony Mowbray insists he will not let his side rest on their laurels as they go in search of a fourth successive league win at Scunthorpe on Tuesday night.

Rovers have not won four consecutive league games since October 2007 but they have the opportunity at Glanford Park following their 3-0 victory at Rochdale on Saturday.

Mowbray believes his side is now starting to get to grips with life in League One but knows his players cannot afford to drop their standards.

“I think we should always strive to improve and get better,” the 53-year-old said.

“We are always trying to improve. We have taken them through to the analysis room and shown them some clips.

“We talk about the mentality required and we talked straight after the game on Saturday, let’s enjoy the moment but we were back to work on Sunday and have to be ready for the next game.”

The former Celtic boss believes Tuesday’s match will be a big test of Blackburn’s promotion credentials.

“I find this game a huge challenge after Saturday and the positive performance on Saturday in front of such a large following,” Mowbray added.

“What we don’t need is a poor performance, an insipid performance, and get beat on a Tuesday night.

We need another performance that makes people stand up.” Blackburn are priced at 2.50 to win Tuesday’s match while Scunthorpe, who are yet to lose in the league this season, are available at 2.80. The draw is on offer at 3.30.
