Marco Silva wants Fulham to continue their fine recent of recent form at Ewood Park on Wednesday – but he knows Blackburn Rovers will provide a tough test.

The Fulham head coach told FFCTV that he knows Tony Mowbray’s side will be a tough nut to crack on their home turf:

“We are looking forward to playing against Blackburn Rovers. It will be a really tough game for us but we go there with full confidence that we can get the three points. But I know as well that the other side will be a tough team to play against in a tough place to play. They are a team with quality, the ability and capacity to score goals. I think it will be a good game, an open game.

“They are stronger at home. They are getting good results and they score in all the matches they play at home. They create always big, big problems for all the teams they play against as well. It will be a tough game for us. We have to be aware of their capacity to make chances. We have to be ourselves, play our game and to create chances.

Silva disclosed that confidence and spirit is high at Motspur Park after Fulham’s recent run of four straight wins, but emphasised that these are still early stages of a gruelling Championship campaign.

They know that I full confidence in them – but I am the first one demanding from them more and more and more. We are just in the beginning of the season, fifteen games in. We are in the beginning of one new process as well. Some players lost a big part of the pre-season – they are now coming in and knowing better the ideas of the team as well. I feel that everyone is on the same page. The atmosphere around the club is really good as well.
