Evans keen to finish the season after coronavirus pandemic

Corry Evans has admitted that it will be a very big disappointment if the season did not resume or if it did not get a regular conclusion. Blackburn were in a great position when the season had to be suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic. The team was just three points away from the top six positions with 27 points to play. As a result, the team had the momentum necessary to get back into the play-offs and compete for a return back to the top flight. Now, however, the season has been suspended and the potential date for resumption has been pushed back with every week.

It looks highly unlikely that the season may resume considering that it will leave very little time for next season.Evans has just returned from a serious injury that has kept him out of action for quite a while. The Northern Ireland midfielder picked up a facial injury that prevented him from making an impact in the team.

The 29-year-old has only featured in 12 league matches so far this season. This is a remarkable drop for a player, who featured in 35 matches last season. Even though the midfielder is not a renowned goalscorer, his presence adds vital steel and experience to the line-up. Blackburn were last seen in the Premier League in the 2011-12 campaign.

“I think it has to finish, regardless. Whenever that may be and however long that may take, finishing the season just clears everything up, but who knows when that’s going to be.There are obviously a lot of decisions that have to be made over that, but for myself, we’re in and around the play-offs and it would be a shame if the season was called off, for where we are in the league. But there are obviously bigger matters at stake and so whatever will be will be,” said Evans.
