Mowbray Credits The Roverites

Mowbray Credits The Roverites

Yes, the Blackburn focus from the week in Austria was to build up form and fitness ahead of the new season but the part the fans have played, commitment shown too, shouldn't be overlooked.

Tony Mowbray's made sure this wasn't the case as the Rovers boss praised those who travelled to Salzburg for Friday's defeat against Sparta Prague.

He told the Official Website: 'It is great to see people supporting the football club with as much passion as they have got. I think the team performed at a reasonable level for them, it was a tight football match, two decent teams.'

Mowbray went on to say he hoped the Roverites enjoyed the game and could then enjoy the Austrian city of Salzburg after.

'Hopefully the fans enjoyed the game and hopefully they enjoy the city tonight. It is great to see Rovers fans out here supporting the team.'

Blackburn Confirm Caddis Arrival

Caddis, who left Bury at the end of a short deal, was given his chance due to his previous with Blackburn boss Mowbray at Celtic. But the ex-Birmingham full back has secured a deal.

Samuel Signing Sealed

Blackburn have signed Reading forward Dominic Samuel, who once worked with Mowbray at Coventry - also loaned to Colchester, Dagenham and Gillingham, ending last season at Ipswich.

Just Saying, But What If....

Blackburn will do well under the boss. However, for arguments sake, if Rovers didn't secure an instant Championship return what would happen to Mowbray?

Caddis At The Double

Caddis has now spent the past three weeks with Blackburn, joining the club in Austria last week, and Mowbray, his boss at Celtic earlier in his career, is close to making his decision.
