A squad full of striking options

4 November 2016

Owen Coyle is delighted to have a full complement of attacking options for Saturday's match at Aston Villa.

With Danny Graham now back in full training, it means the Rovers boss could take all four strikers to Villa Park for this weekend's final league encounter before the November international break.

It will be the first time this season that the manager has had Sam Gallagher, Marvin Emnes, Anthony Stokes and Graham available to him, so he's delighted to have that variety in the forward line to choose from.

"Danny Graham's return gives us another attacking option," Coyle told Rovers PlayerHD.

"He's a wonderful player and when he is fully fit he can be a creator of goals and can also score goals and that is what we want.

"I don't think it has happened at any time this season when I've had all four available to feature in the 18.

"So it will be nice when that comes about because they are all very talented players in different ways, they have different attributes and that is why you can get a nice balance to it.

"You have seen with Gallagher and Emnes there is a nice balance there. They are different types of players but they compliment each other. Danny has also shown when he has come in that he can compliment them, as has Stokes.

"So that is what is good about them, they are different in many ways but equally the biggest single thing is all four can score goals and that is what we are in the game for, to score goals and win games."

Tickets for Saturday's match will be on sale at Ewood Park until 4pm this Friday.

After that fans can buy from the away ticket kiosk on Witton Lane next to the away turnstiles on the day of the game.

Prices are £25 for Adults, £15 for Seniors and Under-21s, £10 for Under-8s.
