Former Huddersfield Town striker Jordan Rhodes has become one of the best players in the Championship since his mega money move to Blackburn Rovers. This season, he has been on course to win the Golden Boot award for most of the campaign.
However, the striker has been going through a sticky patch for the last few weeks, as he has not scored in the last eight matches. Despite this, he continues to remain in contention for the Golden Boot due to his 17 goals. Ross McCormack is the current table leader with 23 goals to his name.
Blackburn Rovers has offloaded Josh Morris to Fleetwood Town on a 1 month loan deal.
"I've been on the bench a lot at Blackburn and not played. I'm at a stage of my career where I need to play as many games as I can. It's a great opportunity." Morris told BBC Radio Lancashire.
Morris has already spent 2 seasons out on loan to Yeovil Town and Rotherham United as his parent club Blackburn Rovers wants him to gain experience somewhere outside of the Championship league.
The manager of Blackburn Rovers, Gary Bowyer, has lauded his shot stopper Paul Robinson for his brilliant comeback.
Robinson featured for the Rovers after more than a year in the FA Cup match against Manchester City last Saturday and surprised a few people by putting up a top class performance straightaway.
Normally, when a player comes back to the scene after remaining out for this long, he takes a bit of time to hit top form, but, not Robinson. He was at the top of his game against City and saved at least two certain goals to help his team achieve one point.
Gary Bowyer said that he would have to bring forth some money before he could reinforce his team and bring in new footballers. The Blackburn Rovers manager would have to take out footballers before team owners Venky's allow him sign new footballers.
Derek Shaw, the managing director and Gary Bowyer met the team owners in India and they were told that they have a limited fund for a loan signing. Instead, Blackburn would look to arouse money with sales. They team lost # 36.5 million in the past financial year.
Blackburn Rovers have failed to win a match in the last three of all competitions after the 0-0 draw with Huddersfield during the weekend.
Despite this disappointing result, manager Gary Bowyer choose to remain positive and has said that he is confident of taking three points in the next league match. Blackburn are expected to be promotion contenders for this season after only narrowly avoiding relegation last season. However, the fortunes have not much changed for the team, who continue to be blighted by off field incidents.
Blackburn Rovers were almost relegated from the Championship in what could have been a major catastrophe for the club just 12 months after their relegation from the Premier league. However, the arrival of Gary Bowyer helped the club stay in the division.
Blackburn Rovers manager Gary Bowyer managed to prevent the club from relegation at the end of last season. Any relegation would have seriously destroyed the hopes of the club ever coming back to the Premier league because they had suffered relegation from the Premier league only 12 months before.
Bowyer will be in charge of the club going into the new season. He has said that fans should not expect miracles in the second season in the championship. However, he is hoping to get the club promoted back into the Premier league through a number of ways.
Blackburn manager Gary Bowyer, who has been appointed on a caretaker basis, has said that he expects the club to survive in the Championship this season. He has also said that he is extremely confident that the club can take 18 points from the remaining six matches.
After a terrible run of form, which led to the sacking of Michael Appleton, the club are currently in the bottom three of the Championship. They are just one point off safety, but the fact that other clubs around them are taking points means that Blackburn have been put as one of the favourites to be relegated this season.
Blackburn's new manager Michael Appleton has said that he wants the club to challenge for a promotion spot come the end of the season, and he has identified a few January signings in order to help the club do so.
The Championship club Blackburn Rovers will not be hurrying the appointment of the next manager according to the global advisor of the club, Shebby Singh. The club recently sacked the manager Henning Berg, who was appointed only 57 days ago.
This was done due to the run of poor results, which left the team with just one victory in the last 10 matches in the league. This has meant that they have ambition of finishing in the automatic promotion spot has been destroyed, while the possibility of Blackburn finishing in the play-offs also remains a major doubt.
