Blackburn Rovers midfielder Craig Conway has urged his side to work even harder once the players return from the international break.

Tony Mowbray’s side did not play this weekend, but a number of their rivals did leaving Blackburn 11th in the League One table.

Rovers endured a slow start to the campaign under Mowbray but they have slowly started to find their feet in the third tier of English football.

Back-to-back wins in the league against Bradford and MK Dons have given the squad a lift and they also won their first match of the Checkatrade Trophy.

Conway admits it is a relief to start winning but he insists the whole squad must work harder ahead of five consecutive league games before the end of September.

He told the club’s official website: “It has never been a case of us not having a good enough squad as I did feel that the results would come and they are starting to come.

“But there is a long way to go, we’ve just got to keep picking up points. We’ve got a couple of good results and a good result at home in the league which was convincing in the end.

“At the end of the day if we want to get to where we want to we need to win most games. So that is the plan.

“We just need to keep building on what we’ve done, keep working hard, and hopefully we’ll be up there. I think we have shown what we are capable of and it is just about keeping that going.”
