Blackburn Rovers manager Tony Mowbray has admitted that almost everyone within the squad wants to be involved as the club head into the final stages of the League One campaign. Harry Chapman remains a long-term injury absentee for the Rovers but aside from this, the club are nearly up to full strength with the likes of Ben Gladwin and Ryan Nyambe closing in on their injury comebacks.
Blackburn Rovers head coach Tony Mowbray has expressed his frustration at the club’s inability to pick up a victory over Wigan Athletic at Ewood Park on Sunday. The hosts took a two-nil lead inside the first 17 minutes thanks to Adam Armstrong and Elliott Bennett, but their efforts were undone during the second-half as Latics comeback ensured that they shared the spoils.
Michael Jacobs’ shot in the 63rd minute took a light deflection off Will Grigg to deceive goalkeeper David Raya for the first goal. And 10 minutes later, a Max Power free-kick from the left wing made it all the way to the far post without anyone touching the ball. As a result, the Rovers had to settle for a 2-2 draw, Mowbray was bitterly disappointed about dropping an early-lead.

While it is possible for Blackburn to catch both of these clubs, Tony Mowbray has seen his team go through a difficult patch of results over the last few games.
A string of matches in December and January has tested Blackburn’s squad to the limit. The team is in need of a break, and it has come in the form of an early FA Cup exit. This should help Blackburn in the short term, but Tony Mowbray says that the team needs to bring in a couple of players on a permanent basis if the club are to prepare for the second half of the campaign – and possibly for the next season. Blackburn were once a regular Premier League outfit, but the team has now fallen into the third division of English football. After spending five struggling years in the Championship, Blackburn finished in the 22nd place last season and were demoted to the League One.
