Blackburn Rovers were on a five-match unbeaten run in the English Championship before they took on Huddersfield Town away from home in their latest league outing, At the end of proceedings, Blackburn Rovers were on the wrong side of a five-goal thriller thus putting an end to their run of five matches without defeat.
Blackburn welcomes Huddersfield to Ewood Park in the round 12 fixtures in the Championship. Both teams are currently not where they desire to be and it promises to be a thrilling game for the neutrals.
Blackburn have been enduring mixed form despite playing well in their recent games. Manager Tony Mowbray is experienced and has been charged with making a playoff run this season. However, this is unlikely to happen if they don’t pick points in important matches.
Looking at the team news, there are a lot of injury doubts for the home team. Big defender Greg Cunningham is expected to be out for a while after suffering anterior crucial ligament damage in the defeat at QPR.
The club is also going to be without defender DarraghLenihan who suffered a freak injury against QPR and is expected to miss eight weeks of action.
Tony Mowbray who is the current manager for Blackburn Rovers made statements on Jacob Davenport. The manager stated that Jacob has to go a long way for returning to action as a first-team player for the club. He also said though he has resumed his training sessions, he needs to take a lot of effort to come back to the field.
Davenport was taken up recently as a prime midfielder by the club. Before, he used to play for Manchester City, the Premier League Champions. Davenport joined Blackburn Rovers last summer under a deal for four years at Ewood Park. The debut season was not at all fruitful for Jacob and it was quite frustrating for him. He also could not appear as a senior player till the time when Blackburn did a 2-2 draw on the final day against Swansea City for the league season because of his injury issues. The midfielder faced a lot of setbacks during the summer. He suffered injury for his ankle ligament in a pre-season behind closed doors game against Macclesfield Town.
Blackburn Rovers manager Tony Mowbray is happy with the signing of Adam Armstrong on a four-year contract. He said that Armstrong was an influential player last season when he was on loan at the club and that he is happy that he could get him on a long-term contract.
Tony Mowbray said that he wants to build a team that can help Blackburn Rovers mount a push for promotion and he feels that the arrival of Adam Armstrong is a step in the right direction.
he player managed to score 9 goals in 21 games for Blackburn Rovers despite joining the team only in January. Tony Mowbray will be hoping that the player can replicate the same sort of form this season in order to help his team win games.
Blackburn Rovers manager Tony Mowbray believes his team will be better prepared for their league season than they were 12 months ago. The Rovers began their League One season last term with back-to-back defeats after having spent their pre-season tackling clubs from the lower divisions in England.
The Lancashire outfit once more have games against weaker sides in the form of Hibernian, Port Vale, Lincoln City and Accrington Stanley but Mowbray is pleased that the club have found a better balance with a couple of high-profile friendlies yet to be announced. He said:“I think we’ve got a balanced pre-season this year. We’ve got some fixtures that we haven’t announced yet, that are going to really test the team. We’re going to be out of possession and we’re going to have to work hard on our defensive shape. And then there’s some games where hopefully we’ve got some of the ball and we’re going to work at trying to break the teams down.”
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.
According to The Mirror, the Baggies are already contemplating the prospect of recruit a new manager with Darren Moore placed on temporary charge for the remainder of the campaign. Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes and Leicester City assistant Michael Appleton have been associated with the vacancy, but Mowbray has been linked with a probable return owing to his experience of coaching in the Championship.
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.
