Rovers boss Tony Mowbray says tying Corry Evans down to a new long-term deal is another piece of the jigsaw going forward for his side.

Evans follows on from Charlie Mulgrew, Elliott Bennett and the boss in putting pen-to-paper on fresh terms, and Mowbray is pleased to keep another piece of the Rovers core.
 
The Northern Ireland international midfielder has been with the club since the summer of 2013, and Mowbray believes he has a lot of the required qualities.
 
"We want people here who understand the ethic, the gameplans," Mowbray began when talking to iFollow Rovers.
 
"Teams will evolve and change, but we want a core here for the years to come.
 
“Players like Charlie, Elliott and Corry, they can take the club forward in the right direction.
 
“He’s still in his 20s but he is an experienced player now. He’s still young though, it’s not as if he’s 32 or 33, this isn’t a last contract for Corry.
 
“He has to keep pushing on. Our ambition is to get into the Premier League and he should want to play at that level as well and test himself against the best players in the world.
 
“That’s the challenge, not only for Corry but for everyone. We’ll set the bar high and aim to keep going in the direction we’re going at the moment."
