TEAM SPIRIT CAN TAKE THEM FAR

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

BLACK­BURN might not have won, but they showed they have a spirit in the team that could make them pro­mo­tion con­tenders.

This was a res­o­lute, brave per­for­mance.

They not only over­came a suc­ces­sion of in­juries be­fore and dur­ing the match – in­clud­ing the aw­ful one to David Raya – they took on one of the best sides in the league and matched them.

Man­ager Tony Mow­bray has put to­gether a team of tremen­dous be­lief, one that does not know when it’s beaten, whether that’s by fate or by the op­po­si­tion.

It will take Rovers far in a league in which it is im­pos­si­ble to se­lect who is go­ing to fin­ish in the top two.

Al­bion have been on a bit of a slide re­cently and man­ager Dar­ren Moore now has the task of reignit­ing them if they are go­ing to stay in the chase for pro­mo­tion.

They missed the in­jured Dwight Gayle and will need him and other key play­ers back as soon as pos­si­ble.
