TEAM SPIRIT CAN TAKE THEM FAR
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.
