Charlie Mulgrew: More to come from Rovers

Blackburn defender Charlie Mulgrew says they are aiming for automatic promotion to the Championship and believes they can keep on improving.

Rovers, who are priced at 2.40 to win promotion, fell to back-to-back defeats at the start of their League One campaign and have endured an inconsistent few months, but still find themselves just outside the play-offs.

The Lancashire club have fallen to just one defeat in their last eight league outings, but have been held to four draws during that run.

Blackburn are already 11 points adrift of second-placed Wigan and a further point behind leaders Shrewsbury although they do have a game in hand on both sides.

Mulgrew admits Rovers haven’t been at their very best although he insists they are still targeting a top-two finish.

Mowbray’s men travel to the Energy Check Stadium to face Bury on Saturday and Mulgrew has stressed the importance of turning draws into victories.

Mulgrew said: “Of course, that’s the main target for us and we are doing all we can to get there.

“I think there’s more to come in terms of going on a run.

We’ve shown it in spells, playing well, but I think if we can really put it together in this run of games then we can hopefully get a few wins.

“We’ve got ourselves in a good position, with a couple of games in hand, but we feel that we need that run and that’s what we want to do.”
