'Bully' Brown getting better all the time

10 February 2015

Gary Bowyer has been delighted with the way Chris Brown has performed since coming into the side.

The striker missed the majority of the first half of the campaign with a troublesome knee injury, but having started three of the last four league games, his manager believes the Rovers frontman adds a new dimension to the side, and some much-needed physicality to the forward line.

"Browny has been magnificent," said the Rovers boss. "We fought very hard to get him because we knew what he would bring, and the extra dimension that he'd bring to the team.

"His workrate is phenomenal, his link-up play has been excellent and he's been running past some of our midfielders to go and put tackles in as well.

"It has been a while since we've had a bully of a centre forward, it is a pleasant surprise to see the referees talking to our centre forward for upsetting their centre halves.

"He doesn't give them a second's rest, he doesn't make it easy for them that is for sure. If you ask any of our lads, the value that he has brought to the team and the appreciation they have for him, is massive.

"He just needs a goal to just take him on another level again. He's getting the chances - the half chances at the moment, so we are delighted with him and he is only going to get better and better with more games that he plays."
