Tony Mowbray has confirmed that he has no fresh injury concerns ahead of Thursday's crucial clash with Peterborough, and expects talisman Bradley Dack to be "firing on all cylinders."

The Blues return to Ewood Park knowing that a win would be a massive step towards automatic promotion from League One, with just four games remaining in 2017/18.

Speaking ahead of the match, Mowbray was asked to provide a squad update and had positive news to share.

“There's not much change on the injury front, really," he said.

"We had a horrific week of travelling last week, so there’s been a couple of strains and a bit of fatigue but we’re good for Thursday. We're ready to go.

"Corry [Evans] has trained very well with us today and looked fit. We'll see how he is tomorrow but I'd expect him to be passed fit to play.

"Ryan Nyambe should return to training next week but he's been out for a few weeks now so it's difficult to say if he'll play a part again [this season]."

As for Bradley Dack, who was named League One Player of the Season at the EFL Awards last weekend, the boss says he looks back to his best.

“In training, Bradley Dack has been back to the Bradley Dack that I know. We’ll have him firing on all cylinders tomorrow - he’s ready.”
