Tony's team news update

The boss has positive news ahead of this weekend's game against Oldham

12 October 2017

Tony Mowbray has revealed that he has no fresh injury concerns ahead of Blackburn Rovers' trip to Oldham this weekend.

The Blues will be looking to claim a third straight league win with victory at Boundary Park, and have been working hard throughout the international break in preparation for the game.

Speaking in his pre-match press conference on Thursday, Mowbray acknowledged that he'll have to make some tough decisions about his starting line-up.

“I think a few things have cleared up," he said. "If anything, it will be who I’m leaving out of the 18 rather than who I’m putting in the 11, which is positive.

"Darragh Lenihan is the only one who really jumps out to me as a player that’s unavailable at the moment.

"We’ve worked hard all week, the internationals have come back and joined in with training and everything is fine. 

“Any manager will tell you that picking the team and the subs is a difficult part of the week, these are difficult decisions when you’re leaving players out of the set-up, but they’re ones you have to make. 

"We’re looking forward to the weekend and to a big week. We’ve got three games; it’ll be a tough week but there are points there for us to grab.

"We know that only with hard work and total focus will we be able to get those points and we hope we can."

Rovers fans can follow the game, which kicks off at 15:00 BST, via our official Twitter account on Saturday, and highlights will be available on iFollow.
