With the 2014/2015 season getting underway tonight. Blackburn have a tough but winnable game against Cardiff. The Rovers have had a productive off season. They have signed Brown and Baptiste who will be look to preform for their new side early on in the season.
The preseason games have been great for Gary Bowyer. Rovers have come up against some good sides and done very well. The team look like they have keep the form they had going to into the end of last season.
The Rovers will need a few key players to step up this year.
Rhodes will need to keep his reputation of scoring whenever to help get the Rovers across the line and fight for promotion. The midfield duo of Lowe and Cairney will also need to bring their A game to help control the middle of the park by both defending and attacking well. This will help the big centre back and Captain Grant Hanley. For Blackburn to fight for the promotion this year they will need him to set up and have a fantastic season defending and finishing headers in the corners and free kicks. With the two inform wingers King and Conway looking to gain a starting positions for this season, the rovers will need them to set up and use their pace and deliver precision balls in to the box for players such as Rhodes and Gestede.
Bowyer will most likely look to play a very similar line up to the one he used against Stoke City and also the 4 – 5 – 1 will be used.The Rovers will look to gain promotion and definitely be fighting for the top 6 of the season.
