Duffy provides welcome competition

2 September 2014

Rovers boss Gary Bowyer believes defender Shane Duffy will provide welcome competition to his back four.

"He's played in the Premier League and he had a good season for Yeovil last year. Hopefully he will fit in with us straight away and we look forward to seeing him on the pitch."

"We've known about him for a long time and we've monitored him through the youth levels at Everton.

"He's dominant in both boxes and whilst he's only 22, he's a warrior and a leader.

"He'll certainly come and add some competition and add some size to the back four for us.

"He gives a massive boost to our defence, because we aren't blessed with numbers in that area,” said Bowyer.
The Republic of Ireland international joined from Everton on deadline day, penning a three-year deal and Bowyer is delighted to finally get his man.
