Corry Evans has got back to 100% fitness and he might feature for his club Blackburn Rovers in their upcoming championship match against Middlesbrough.

Evans had done some harm to his ligament while on national duty last year and since then; he had been spending time on the sidelines.

However, the 23 years old midfielder hasn’t played much football in the last 15 weeks or so and thus, to ask him to make an appearance for the first team straightaway would be a gamble.

Many people reckon that it would be good if the Englishman makes a couple of appearances for the U-21 team of the club before being included into the squad for the matches of the first team.

It would be interesting to see what the Blackburn manager Gary Bowyer does, if he leaves him out to play for the junior team or he puts him into the thick of things directly.

This is Evan’s debut season at Blackburn Rovers. He had moved to the club at the start of the ongoing season and has so far made just 8 league appearances there in which he has found the net once.

When Bowyer was asked about Evan’s fitness a couple of days ago, he said, “He has almost got there and he might be on the bench this weekend against Newcastle.”

“To lose him was a huge blow for us. He has missed close to 20 matches I reckon and that’s really disappointing. However, it’s great that he is up and running again. I hope he does a good job for us in the rest of the matches.”
The Rovers have played 29 Championship games till now out of which they have won 11. They are at the 8th position in the table with 42 points.
