Rovers Suffer Shaky Start

Blackburn Rovers’ start to the season has not been perfect after they have managed just one win in the three matches. The poor form continued after they suffered a 3-1 defeat against Norwich in a match that raises questions about the squad.
Manager Gary Bowyer, however, felt that a number of decisions from the referee went against his team in this defeat. Blackburn opened the new campaign with a 1-1 draw against newly relegated Cardiff. They followed this with a 1-0 defeat against Scunthorpe United in the League Cup that was a shock to many.

Bowyer Believes Corry Can Deliver

Gary Bowyer, the manager of Blackburn Rovers, believes that during the next season, Corry Evans would be able to produce the goods.

Evans had been brought to the Blackburn Rovers by Bowyer last summer with big hopes, but, unfortunately, the 23-year old Centre-back discovered an ankle problem while representing his national side Northern Ireland. That injury made him miss almost entire second half of the last season.

But, he returned to full fitness when the season was approaching its end and featured for his country in a couple of friendly matches.

Corry Evans willing to play at wing back for Northern Ireland

Young midfielder Corry Evans is willing to do a massive favor for Northern Ireland boss Michael O’Neill by learning his trade as a wing back.

The Northern Irish boss has switched to a fluid 3-5-2 system in recent matches which allows him to have a solid defense as well as two forwards at the top without having to compromise their strength in the midfield.

However, for the plan to be successful, he needs two flying wing backs that are as much adept at bombing as they are solid in defense.

Bowyer Delighted At Prospect Of Evans

Blackburn Rovers manager Gary Bowyer has stated that he is extremely delighted at the prospect of working with midfielder Corry Evans next season. The former Hull city man has been an influential player for the club since joining them during the summer transfer window. He has helped them make a late push towards the play-offs. The midfielder was at his best in the 3-1 win over Charlton. After the match, Bowyer stated that Evans has all the attributes to become a great player for Blackburn.


Blackburn Rovers manager Gary Bowyer, who was without midfielder Corry Evans for the match against QPR, says that the team should only concentrate about winning the rest of the matches in the season without having to think about the play-offs.

After an inconsistent season, Blackburn find themselves several points behind the final play-off places. However, they seem to be hitting form at a time when teams above them are struggling to find consistency. This has been Blackburn close the gap on sixth placed Reading to just four points with five matches remaining.


Leicester City have been the team to beat in the championship this season. Blackburn are looking to take on the challenge of overcoming Nigel Pearson’s men this weekend. Midfielder Corry Evans, who joined the club on a permanent basis in the January transfer window, says that he does not see reason why Blackburn could defeat the table leaders. The 23-year-old has worked with Pearson when he was at Hull city. Hence, he knows the manager extremely well and this is something that Blackburn can take advantage of for the weekend.

Evans Making A Comeback

The Irish Footballer- Corry Evans is all set to return to the game of football by participating in the Premier League match against Tottenham on the 10th of February, 2014. Gary Bowyer (boss of Blackburn Rovers) was elated to announce the return of Corry Evans and Bowyer was as excited as he would have appeared when he was signing a new footballer.

For almost four months, Evans did not get a chance to play because he had sustained a serious ankle-ligament injury while he was representing Northern Ireland in the qualifier matches of the World Cup on the 15th of October, 2013 in Israel.


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.


David Moyes has said he will only make new signings in January should he be able to bring in players who can make a lasting impact at Manchester United.

"The thing about this club is that we always think long term," he told reporters.

"I am thinking how we are going to have a side that is going to be competing in the Champions League and right at the top end of the Premier League for four or five years.


When playing with his national side Northern Ireland Corry Evans, suffered from an ankle injury which will keep him unable to make any appearances for Blackburn Rovers in what remains of this year.

The 23 years old midfielder does not have any desire on making his return faster as it may just worsen the injury and thus keeping out of the playing grounds even longer.

Evans said: “You have to make sure with this exact ligament injury you are fully healed before you come back.
