Rigters To Leave Ewood Park?!?!

Rigters To Leave Ewood Park?!?!

Blackburn Rovers striker Maceo Rigters looks as though his possible move away from Ewood Park this month will be taking place after all.

Rigters was only signed last summer but has found it increasingly difficult to get a place in the Rovers match day squads of sixteen let alone the starting XI, so with a loan move already mooted previously (despite Rovers denying this) it is looking very much so that he will leave Rovers by the end of the month.

However, Rovers would ONLY sell him permanently if they received a BIG MONEY offer, and seem more prepared to loan out the Dutch International, with several Championship Clubs and some in his homeland believed to be interested.

I ALWAYS thought he was signed as a player for the future but thought he would get a bit more of a go. It makes sense to loan him out for the remainder of the season and bring him back next season.

So tough at the moment, strikers wise. So much quality it's impossible to keep them all happy!

Also I think our lack of success in all cup competitions hasn't helped with regards to opportunities to rotate the squad.

martinr i was just thinkin bout that earlier. last year we went far in the cup and also had the luxury of playing a few fringe players in the group stages of the uefa cup but this hasnt happened this season limiting our opportunities! i do think that we need to start blooding some of the younger members of the squad and get them used to the demands of the premierleague

i dont think we can really afford to blood anyone in the league at the moment. With the table so tight at the top, we need our best teams playing, week in week out. Maybe Cameo roles of the bench but thats about it

I also feel bad for Matty D, he's looked like a future England starter when he's come on, but this season he's barely had a shout. I just really hope he doesn't start getting disillusioned too.. maybe we should have let McCarthey go when he started getting too big for his boots in the summer after all

never mind you win some you lose some as long as the majority of your squad are happy then one or two leaving is never a bad thing

Yeah I'm disappointed for Derbs too. I would like to see him given more opportunities in the coming weeks, just to mix things up a little.

I have a feeling that Beni just mite leave, I dont think the club would suffer to much judging this seasons display!! Rigters looks ok on wot I've seen but not enough to be sure he's wot we need, hopefully he'll go on loan, if he playes well then grand if not we can sell on

The end of the Championship campaign of 2016/17 is only a month and a bit away from fans across the country but as we go in to the remaining weeks of the campaign...

Positive Signs For Bennett

Bennett was positive of Blackburn being able to see off Lancashire rivals Preston heading into this game at Ewood Park after the Norwich and Fulham results.

Minor Graham Setback

Blackburn had to do without Danny Graham against Preston following the groin problem that forced him off against Fulham last week. He could return against Brighton next week.

Hugely Frustrating

Mowbray admitted Blackburn didn't start the game well against Preston but had then been the dominant side so was 'majorly disappointed' not to record a victory.
