A worthwhile trip

15 November 2013

Gary Bowyer is back behind his desk at Brockhall after spending a fruitful few days in India with the owners.

The Rovers boss, along with managing director Derek Shaw, jetted out to Pune after the weekend match at Brighton for the pre-arranged get together.

"With the international break it was an ideal opportunity to go out and see the owners," said Bowyer.

"The talks were very constructive, it was a worthwhile trip, we all agreed that Jordan Rhodes isn't for sale, we talked about reducing the wage bill, and discussed the important January transfer window coming up."

As Bowyer approaches six months in charge, he is pleased with how the new-look squad have adapted.

"We've said all along that it is very much a work in progress," added Bowyer. "It will take time, this is a young, enthusiastic group and they are starting to gel.

"We feel that we should have a few more points on the board, our performances have certainly merited that, none more-so than against Brighton last time out where we created more than enough chances to win the game.

"Our support has been fantastic and I want to thank the fans for the support I've received, they can see what we are attempting to build here, a hungry young team that everyone can be proud of.

"I urge them to continue to focus their energies on cheering on the team home and away in their growing numbers as we approach a hectic and important festive period."

Rovers are next in action on Saturday 23rd November when Reading visit Ewood Park. Tickets are currently on open sale priced from £19 Adults, £12 Seniors and £7 Juniors.
