As such, the team ended the competition with no points on the board as well as getting relegated to League C but Evans believes there are plenty of positives to carry forward, he said: “It's always disappointing when you lose the game with the last kick of the ball. But we can take a lot of positives out of the performance. The manner of the way we played; going a goal down we came back to level the game and at that stage it looked like we were the only side going to go win the game, but it wasn't to be. We have to take great confidence from the way we have been playing in the campaign and take that into the Euro 2020 qualifiers.”

The match was seen by Mowbray, who is hoping to get a number of English players in his Blackburn Rovers team. Blackburn already have a strong British contingent with the likes of Corry Evans in the team.

The club are preparing for the new campaign with a lot of zest. Blackburn are back in the Championship after winning promotion from League One. This is a very crucial element for the club that has suffered quite a lot in the last few years. Mowbray said that the team spirit of the England squad is similar to what he has seen at Blackburn. “After a lot of financial and on-the-pitch difficulties, Blackburn are finally back in the Championship. . The key attribute for Blackburn is to remain in the second division rather than become a yo-yo club between the Championship and the League One.

Speaking to reporters, he said:“It's been a few weeks now since we got back into pre-season and I've had a knock since the back end of last season, which still wasn't right. That was why I took a rest and missed out on last weekend's trip to Scotland. So it feels great to have got some game time against Port Vale.

Evans Disappointed after draw with Wigan

Corry Evans has claimed that the half-time lead against Blackburn Rovers did not provide complacency for the team. Blackburn had a 2-0 lead at halftime and this provided them with a lot of belief about going on to beat Wigan Athletic. However, the strong team from League One were able to produce a remarkable comeback with goals from Adam Armstrong and Elliot Bennett. Even though the game could only yield a point for Blackburn, it was still a positive element for Corry Evans and the Lancashire team. They still remain in touch with the top of the table and could get promotion via the automatic places.

Still, a victory over Wigan would have put Blackburn ahead in the League One table. After having been struggling for results for a long time, Blackburn are finding themselves on a winning run once again. This is helping them move closer towards a return to the Championship. Even though Corry Evans acknowledges that it has been a tremendous run, the club wants to finish in the automatic promotion spots rather than in the play-offs. Blackburnknow all too well about play-off disappointments and the team would not want a repeat of the same for the 2017-18 campaign.
