Craig epitomises what is required to be successful

12 September 2017

Boss Tony Mowbray believes Craig Conway has all the attributes required to have a successful season in League One.

After missing the tail end of pre-season, and the opening fortnight of the new campaign with a hamstring strain, the popular Scot's return to first team action has coincided with Rovers winning their last three league matches.

And ahead of this evening's match against Scunthorpe, where Conway is expected to shake of a knock to the hip sustained in the weekend win over Rochdale, Mowbray feels his work-rate, energy and desire will be required.

"I think he epitomises what is required in successful football teams," said the manager.

"I think every successful football team has wide players that almost do two men's jobs really. They create, get in the box and put crosses in, and yet they are back defending with their full-backs stopping crosses at the other end.

"They've got to have the aerobic capacity, they've got to have a tenacious attitude, they've got to have the some ability to create and pick the right pass and put the ball in the right areas.

"So as I've said I think Craig epitomises those qualities of a wide player. Whether on the front foot trying to score, or on the back foot showing shape and disciple helping his full-back, he does both."

Tickets for tonight's match against Scunthorpe United will be on sale from the ticket office at Ewood Park until 2.30pm at the advance price of £22 Adults, £15 Seniors, £15 Students (must produce valid NUS Card), £15 Under 21s. £6 Under 18s and Under 12s Free of charge (Maximum of two per paying adult).
