Tony Pulis has warned that former Middlesbrough boss Tony Mowbray will have the added incentive of wanting to beat his former club, when his Blackburn Rovers side take on Pulis’ men this weekend.
Mowbray was manager at the Riverside for three years between 2010 and 2013, and is one of the club’s most famous players, having turned out for the club over 300 times.
But, Pulis has insisted that he will want to get one over on his former club this weekend.
“He’ll be desperate to get one over his old club I’m sure,” Pulis said in his pre-match press conference.
“As a manager going back to an old club, you do exactly the same things but there’s more of an edge, that nice little feeling about it.
“We’ve just got to concentrate on what we can do to get round the game and get the three points.”
Six points separate the sides in the Championship table, and Pulis will want his side to overcome the challenge from Rovers this weekend in the Saturday 3pm kick off at the Riverside.
