ROVERS ON THE UP FOR BOWYER
GARY Bowyer celebrated his 100th game in charge of Blackburn Rovers yesterday and believes the club is in a better state of health than when he took over.
Bowyer, 43, has overseen a raft of personnel changes since he secured a 3-1 win at Barnsley in his first game in charge in December 2012, with the club currently operating under a transfer embargo after failing to adhere to strict Financial Fair Play regulations.
But despite their midtable league position, the Rovers boss insists that progress has been made.
“It is in better shape, the whole place,” Bowyer said.
“The training ground is completely different and now people come into work with smiles on their faces.
“There are over 25 firstteam players who have left the building and we’ve brought in some wonderful footballers who have produced some great performances.
“I think you can tell that it is a different vibe when you come into the building now.
“In the summer we’ll be in a better shape, build again and have another go.”
