Blackburn Rovers came to the brink of getting into the play-offs in the final few weeks of the season, but they now have to look at promotion from the next campaign onwards. Blackburn finished the season in the eighth position just two points behind the final play-off places. They have managed to go undefeated in the last five matches of the season. During this period, they have been one of the best attacking teams in the country. The display has delighted manager Gary Bowyer, who now looks set to be at the club into next season as well.
He has said after the final match of the season against Wigan that the players can be proud of the displays this season. He was recently happy with the attacking style of football employed at the club this campaign. Bowyer has also expressed his confidence that the club will be able to challenge for a return to the Premier League next season. Blackburn were relegated from the top division of English football a couple of years ago. They have been trying to get back, but have been unsuccessful on several occasions such as these.
The final home match of the season ended in a 4-3 win for Blackburn over Wigan athletic.
“The amount of goals we have been scoring is exciting. It’s been at the forefront of our play at the back end of the season. But what we’ve got to do is stop giving silly goals away, like we did against Wigan on Saturday. We must do that next season as well as keep. The confidence levels are very, very high but we know it’s a 46-game season. We go into the summer break with optimism,” said the manager, whose future was in doubt a few months ago. The strikers at the club scored 38 goals between them.
