Squad is taking shape - boss

3 February 2016

Paul Lambert feels his Rovers squad is starting to take shape, following the deadline day capture of midfielder Jordi Gomez.

The Spaniard completed a late loan move to Ewood Park from Sunderland to round off a busy month for the Rovers boss.
 
Gomez, who has previously played for Swansea City and Wigan Athletic in the Championship, became Rovers’ sixth signing of the January window and joins Elliott Bennett, Simeon Jackson, Danny Graham, Elliott Ward and Tony Watt in Lambert’s new-look squad.
 
With a raft of new players at his disposal, the manager is now focussing on moving the club up the table.
 
"We're hopefully getting a better balance,” said the Rovers boss. “I think our squad needed to be balanced out better, we needed to get players in that we think can manipulate the ball.
 
"Danny's enhanced it, Simeon has enhanced it, Tony will enhance it and obviously Jordi.
 
"We've had Elliott Ward and Elliott Bennett come in too, and the new guys that have come in have integrated really well with the lads that have already been here, so as a group, slowly but surely, we're hopefully turning things around.
 
"It’s been a massive month for the club. It's about building a squad. The club is bigger than any player and I'm delighted with what happened on deadline day."
