Olsson: Break will make us better

The 1-0 home win over Hull in midweek put Sam Allardyce's men eight points clear of the Premier League drop zone and with their next fixture at home to Bolton not scheduled until Monday, February 22, Rovers are jetting off to the Middle East for some rest and relaxation.

"Last year it was Scotland. It's not as good as Dubai!" Olsson told the Lancashire Evening Telegraph.

"It will be much better now, with warm weather and team bonding. I think it will make the team much closer and stronger.

"We've got the three points against Hull and we will take that with us to Bolton.

"We won't think that much about football in Dubai, we will just enjoy the time together.

"If we do that, we will come back flying at Bolton and keep playing good football.

"Against Hull, I think I was halfway to Dubai in my head!

"But I had to be thinking about the game as well and it felt good to score to win the game, get three points and make our time in Dubai much better now.

"We will come back stronger against Bolton."
