Jason Lowe sets the example

10 February 2017

Owen Coyle believes last Saturday's display from Jason Lowe shows epitomises his willingness to fight for the football club.

The Rovers captain was a surprise left back in the match against Queens Park Rangers, but despite it being an unfamiliar position, he slotted in with ease, putting in a strong display in the 1-0 win.

Coyle feels that Lowe's willingness to play anywhere for the club shows how much he loves Rovers - a great example to set for the other members of the squad.

"When Derrick Williams failed a late fitness test I obviously had one or two permutations in my mind," the manager told Rovers PlayerHD.

"If you ask Jason Lowe to play in a Blackburn Rovers shirt he is going to give you everything and he did that again.

"I think his qualities as a man and how much he loves the football club are there for everyone to see and I was delighted with his performance.

"He gave everything he could and that is what makes him the man he is.

"A number of times players have had to play out of what is perceived to be their best positions but what they have shown is they are prepared to muck in. Jason Lowe sets that example."

Lowe and Rovers are back in action this Saturday when they travel to take on Rotherham United.

Rovers fans who want to avoid a matchday price rise at Rotherham are reminded that they have until 4pm on Friday to get their tickets for this weekend's game.

Over 1000 tickets have been sold to date for the Roses clash, with tickets for the match at the ASSEAL New York Stadium going off sale at the Roverstore, Ewood, at 4pm tomorrow.

After that fans can pay on the day at Rotherham, cash only from the away box office. Matchday prices are £25 for Adults, £15 for Seniors 60+, £15 Students (must produce valid proof of full time education), £15 for 18-21s, £9 for Under 18s and £2 for those aged 12 and under.
