EVANS MAKES FIRST START AGAINST WATFORD

Blackburn Rovers midfielder Corry Evans made his first start for the club since his return from injury. Corry Evans played the entire duration of the game as Blackburn Rovers ended up on the wrong side of a five-goal thriller at home to Watford in an English Championship clash played on Wednesday night. Corry Evans had been injured since last year before returning to Blackburn Rovers training towards the end of last month. He has now been part of the Blackburn Rovers squad for the last four games in the league. Corry Evans made his first appearance on his return from injury during the Barnsley game earlier this month. The return of Corry Evans has not been able to change the fortunes of Blackburn Rovers. The former Premier League champions have now lost their last five games in the English Championship since the win over Luton Town and the recent poor run has put a dent on their quest to secure a playoff spot this season. The Watford defeat on Wednesday night made it five successive league losses for Tony Mowbray and his Blackburn Rovers players.

“Watford were able to strengthen their place in the playoff places on the Championship standings with the 3-2 away win over Blackburn Rovers.
