Mowbray: Rovers Not Resting

Even with no game in mind this week, Rovers manager Tony Mowbray has said that the team is not resting. The team is out of action this week due to the international break. A decent number of the first team are representing their various countries but Mowbray insists that it is business as usual for the team.

Corry Evans, Jayson Leutwiler, Derrick Williams, DarraghLenihan, Charlie Mulgrew and co are away on international duty but according to the coach the rest of the squad in East Lancashire are already preparing for the next game against Bradford.

Corry Evans: Blackburn Rovers must maintain their mentality

Blackburn Rovers midfielder Corry Evans feels the club have a long way to go before thinking about the prospect of Championship promotion. The Rovers have built up a 18-match unbeaten streak starting from October, and this sees them firmly in the playoff spots for the moment.

Speaking after the Rovers' 1-1 draw versus Rotherham United, Evans urged his teammates to maintain their current mentality which have helped him chip their way to the top-six to the division, he said: "We’ve got that mentality where even if you don’t want you come away with at least a point.

Corry Evans wants VAR implemented for international qualifiers

Northern Ireland international Corry Evans has urged FIFA to implement the VAR system in the wake of the controversy earlier this week. The Irish were ousted from next summer's World Cup finals in Russia after they lost their two-legged playoff to Switzerland by a solitary goal.

The Swiss opened the scoring via a penalty in the first leg in Belfast where Evans was adjudged to have handled the ball in the box. The Blackburn Rovers ace appeared to turn his back on the impending shot, but the referee nevertheless gave the spot-kick despite no clear view of the ball hitting his hand.

Corry Evans terms penalty decision against Northern Ireland as disgraceful

Northern Ireland midfielder Corry Evans was left disappointed after the referee controversially awarded a penalty for his handball versus Switzerland on Thursday night. The Blackburn Rovers ace had very less time to react in the penalty box, and it appeared that the ball went on to hit his hand rather than the opposite.

Swiss left-back Ricardo Rodriguez converted the penalty to hand his nation a 1-0 victory in the first leg of the World Cup playoff, and Evans felt that the decision against him was disgraceful. Meanwhile, the Irishman was also booked as a result of his handball, and this has left him absolutely gutted as he will now serve a one-match suspension.

Steve Davies not concerned by suspension threat

Steven Davis does not feel Northern Ireland will compensate their team selection against Germany despite having as many six players, who are just a caution away from suspension.

Michael O'Neill's side are currently five points behind Germany in their World Cup qualifying group, and they will assure themselves a top-eight finish for the playoffs, provided they beat one of Germany or Norway in their final two outings.

Michael O’Neill admits nobody will fancy facing Northern Ireland

Michael O’Neill believes no one will fancy facing the Northern Ireland side after they secured a playoff spot via their 2-0 triumph over the Czech Republic last night.

West Bromwich Albion pair Jonny Evans and Chris Brunt found the net for O'Neill's side, who only required a draw to guarantee them the runner-up spot in the group.

Sunderland Bring in Marc Wilson

Sunderland have been able to make significant inroads in terms of strengthening the squad on transfer deadline day, as manager Simon Grayson has signed three new players, including one of Corry Evan's international team-mates.

Bournemouth’s Marc Wilson happens to be one of the key signings of transfer deadline day. After having been allowed to leave the club on a free transfer, Wilson has signed a one-year contract with Sunderland.


League One side Blackburn Rovers could be without Craig Conway after the player picked up a hamstring injury.

As Danny Graham helped the Rovers to a fourth win in five preseason games so far, the team was without Conway, Corry Evans and DarraghLenihan. Evans and Lenihan are expected to return though before Rovers play Carlisle United on Friday.

Tony Mowbray is excited about the return of Corry Evans

Corry Evans of Blackburn Rovers has recently struggled trying to make appearances for his club due to a consistent groin problem which has left him out of the pitch for a significantly long period of time.

It´s because of this groin problem that Corry Evans has only been able to make 1 competitive appearance for his club so far in 2017.

Blackburn Rovers boss relishing Corry Evans return

Blackburn Rovers head coach Tony Mowbray has revealed his content at the return of defender Corry Evans, who could be fit in time for the new season.

The Rovers will be plying their trade in the third tier of English football for the time in 37 years after they were relegated from the Championship by virtue of goal difference. While, Mowbray is looking into potential additions to his squad, the arrival of a fully fit Evans would encourage their prospects of making an immediate return to the second division.
