Opposition view: Rovers settling in as Mowbray sticks to tried and trusted

Daniel Ainsworth, from the Rovers Chat website and podcast, is in the opposition view hot-seat ahead of Norwich City’s arrival at Ewood Park this afternoon.
Have you been pleased with Rovers’ season so far?
I’ve been very pleased with our season so far. We’ve started well for a side who have been promoted and if it wasn’t for a lack of concentration or an inability to see games out, we’d be comfortable in the play-off spots. The players have taken to the division well and we look like we can match any side on their day. We should be on for a mid-table finish at least if we make a few additions in January.
Has Tony Mowbray continued playing the same style as your League One promotion season?
Yes, we’ve kept with what got us into this division. The same formation every week (4-2-3-1) and like last season, we use Danny Graham as a target man to win the ball and hold it up to bring the other three attacking players into the attack and that’s what works. The only problem is that when Graham leaves the pitch, our plan doesn’t really change and then we struggle.
