Blackburn Rovers have been thrown into a reflective mood following their 3-1 loss to league leaders Leeds United over the weekend. Many had expected them to bounce back to winning ways following a string of poor results.
Blackburn Rovers, the team occupying the fourteenth position in the sky bet championship with a score of 43 points was supposed to be in the playoffs, but they drifted down the ranking due to 3 consecutive defeats.
The match on the 17th of February is a crucial match and so the coach, Tony Mowbray made a lot of changes to the team. Derrick Williams, Harrison Reed, Bradley Dack and Danny Graham are playing the match; the players were benched in the previous one. Mowbray thinks that Middlesbrough is very strong at defense but it might face a loss due to the absence of their defender, Daniel Ayala, who was given a red card in the previous match.
Blackburn Rovers youngster Brad Lyons has been linked with a move to St Mirren, according to a report.
According to a report in the Lancashire Telegraph, Brad Lyons is a player wanted by Scottish Premiership side St Mirren despite only moving to Ewood Park just six months ago.
Blackburn Rovers hat-trick hero Danny Graham was put through his paces in learning about how it feels to get older yesterday.

Tony Mowbray watched the likes of Shrewsbury Town and Wigan Athletic open up an advantage over Blackburn Rovers in the League One table as a result of playing in the last few weeks. Blackburn, however, had not been in action for the last 19 days. This is not to a combination of matches being called off and the international break.
The last game for Blackburn was the second week of March. Now, the club is preparing for a return to league action with the team set to host Bradford City at home on Thursday. Blackburn may have played a game more than Wigan, but they have played one fewer than Shrewsbury Town, who have a two-point advantage in the table. As a result, Blackburn could potentially go top of the table with a victory in the game against Bradford.
Blackburn Rovers managed to keep their good current run by beating Scunthorpe 1-0 away from home. This win makes it the fourth successive victory for Blackburn Rovers after a difficult start to the season.
However, the match was not that easy, and they had to dig deep in order to come out with the win. Indeed, Scunthorpe was unbeaten before the game, and they showed why during the match.
Blackburn Rovers started the new season with a lot of hope that they would get back into the Premier League after an extended absence.
The former title winners are far away from their glory days. The recent appointment of former Burnley manager Owen Coyle is expected to kick off a new era at Ewood Park. The team took on Norwich City in the opening game of the season. Even though the match was at Ewood Park, it was seen as an extremely difficult encounter since Norwich have just come back from the Premier League and are extremely strong as a squad.
Blackburn Rovers continued their improvement in form after the arrival of Paul Lambert, as they sealed a place in the fifth round of the FA Cup with a 3-0 win against Oxford United.
Blackburn Rovers continued with their unbeaten run under Paul Lambert, but they were unable to secure three points against Nottingham Forest.
Blackburn Rovers manager Gary Bowyer has claimed that he is committed to remaining at the club going into the new season. This statement comes after reports linking him with the managerial job at Leeds United. After the recent recover from an Italian businessman, Leeds United are widely expected to appoint Bowyer as the new manager. Despite the late recovery in form, Leeds finished well away from the play-off places, which is very important for the club to get into the Premier league.
