Eager to see more from Tunnicliffe

25 September 2014

Boss Gary Bowyer is delighted to be able to add Ryan Tunnicliffe back into his squad for Saturday's home match against Watford.

The former Manchester United youngster was unable to take part in the 1-0 win over Fulham last time out due to league ruled preventing loan players from featuring against their parent clubs.

Tunnicliffe, who is on a season-long loan from Fulham, impressed as a substitute in a thirty-minute cameo against Derby County last time at Ewood, with the manager looking forward to seeing more from the 21-year-old midfielder.

"The impact that he made when he came on against Derby was great for us," said Bowyer. "He turned the game in our favour.

"For him then to have to miss the game against Fulham was disappointing for the lad and disappointing for us. But he's shown glimpses to the Ewood public of what he is capable of and what a good player he is.

"So we are looking forward to the progress that he'll make throughout the season."

The inclusion of Tunnicliffe means more competition to the squad, something Bowyer is delighted to finally have.

"Competition is something that we've strived hard to get to and we feel we've got that in every department now," added the Rovers boss.

"It is about the players embracing that competition and the luxury for us is that we can afford now to make changes if we feel fit."

Tickets for Saturday's Ewood match against Watford will be on sale up until the 3pm kick-off. They are priced from £17 for Adults, from £11 for Seniors & Students and from just £6 for Under-17s.
