Blackburn Rovers manager Tony Mowbray has emerged as a surprise candidate to become the next head coach of West Bromwich Albion. The 54-year-old previously guided the Baggies to Premier League promotion back in 2008 but the failure to beat relegation saw him dismissed 12 months later.
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.
