Blackburn Rovers midfielder Danny Guthrie believes new manager Tony Mowbray has given them a huge lift as they look to avoid relegation this season.
Blackburn, 2.50 to be relegated, currently occupy the final relegation spot in the Championship but they are just one point away from safety.
However, Rovers are unbeaten since Mowbray took charge, with the club winning two and drawing five of their last seven matches.
That form has seen the confidence within the group grow and Guthrie has praised Mowbray for his tactics.
He believes the players are starting to take his advice on board with just eight games to go until the end of the season.
Guthrie told the club’s official website: “This past week we have been working on some new stuff with the gaffer which has been interesting.
So it is a pity that we don’t have a game at the weekend. “We’ve been unbeaten but we are probably disappointed that we haven’t picked up more wins.
“I think last Saturday was possibly our best performance since the gaffer came in with the ball.
If we’d have come off the pitch with a 2-1 win we’d have been delighted and out of the zone.
“But there are a lot of games to play and a lot of points up for grabs.
We’ve got some tough away games coming up but we can take confidence from our previous two when we went to Fulham and Norwich and earned two good points so we are full of confidence.”
