I'm a huge admirer of Corry

1 October 2016

Owen Coyle believes Corry Evans is starting to show the sort of form that saw him impress in this summer's European championships.

The Rovers midfielder played a starring role for Northern Ireland in France, however a knock sustained during the tournament meant a delayed start to his club campaign.

Now injury free and back in the starting line-up Coyle has been delighted with the way Evans has been performing.

"I've been a huge admirer of him and it was a huge frustration to us all that came back from the Euros and he had that niggle," said the Rovers boss.

"The important thing was to then shut that down and get him to a place that when he did come back he was here for a period of time and not stop-start.

"Hopefully we've got him to that position now, I think he's a wonderful player and I think he has real winning attributes and a real desire to do well for Blackburn Rovers and long my that continue.

"I think the players in the team like having him in the team because they know the qualities that he brings, he's a very good all-round player, there is no doubt about it."

Evans and Rovers are back in league action this afternoon at Birmingham City.

Tickets are available on the day at St. Andrew's from the cash turnstiles at the away end. Prices are £20 for Adults, £15 for Seniors 65+, £15 for Students (must produce a valid NUS card at the turnstiles), 13-18’s £10 and Under 13’s £5.
