Showing the fight for the cause

13 September 2016

Owen Coyle believes the spirit that the team is showing will stand them in good stead as the season progresses.

The Rovers boss was impressed with the response after going behind in Saturday's draw with QPR, and feels it proves that the players are prepared to battle for the club.

Coyle has seen a gradual improvement in performance over the last few weeks, and is convinced that wins are just around the corner.

"I think there has been a gradual improvement game by game," said the manager. "I certainly think we are worthy of more points than we are sitting with at the moment.

"But what we do know is that the longer we work together as the group gets to know each other, and understands what is required in terms of how we want to go about it, then the better it is going to be.

"We felt we played at a decent level against Fulham but knowing there was room for improvement, and then we took that to Queens Park Rangers, a tough away game, and we showed a lot of good quality.

"We also showed a great response to going behind, we were prepared to pick ourselves up and go again. For me that shows that the lads are there and are prepared to battle for each other and for Blackburn Rovers.

"It is easy when you are winning games to have that team spirit, but the true test of character and spirit is when you are having difficult moments, that people show that they are prepared to battle and fight and I think we have shown that.

"So moving forward I know those wins are just around the corner."
