Tony Mowbray keen on arresting Blackburn Rovers’ poor league form

Blackburn Rovers manager Tony Mowbray has said that the team are trying to find the best way to compete in each game and arrest the poor run of league form. The Rovers recently suffered their eighth defeat in 10 Championship matches and this has seen them drop to the 16th position in the standings.

Speaking in a press conference, Mowbray said that the players are not prepared to let up on the ongoing form and they are determined to turn things before the campaign concludes, he said: “We are trying to find the best way to compete in each game. We give the players a game-plan and for long times this season we have been competitive. The results recently have been disappointing but we are going to try and finish the season strong. We now have some experienced players back, some defenders, and hopefully we can give a good account of ourselves.”

“The Rovers had a chance of making the playoffs after securing four straight league victories in January“. However, their form has nosedived with just four points from the 10 matches thereafter, and this has plummeted them to 16th on the table. Despite this, they have no immediate concerns about a relegation battle, considering they are 11 points ahead “of the drop zone“ with eight games to play.

Next up, Blackburn have a home game against Stoke City at the weekend and the game offers them a good chance of returning to winning ways. The visitors can’t buy a goal at the moment with four successive 0-0 draws and Mowbray’s team should fancy the prospects of overcoming the struggling outfit from Staffordshire. Blackburn beat Stoke during the reverse meeting by a 3-2 scoreline. Blackburn were 3-0 up within the opening 46 minutes, but the Potters tried to make a late comeback with no avail. Saido Berahino and Thomas Ince scored during the final 15 minutes of the game.
