Blackburn Rovers appointed Tony Mowbray as their new manager on an 18-month contract in February 2017. Mowbray, who replaced Owen Coyle in the dugout, was tasked with leading Rovers to safety, but they were relegated down to League One on the final day.
Rovers famously hoisted the Premier League trophy back in 1994/95 under manager Kenny Dalglish, with a team consisting of the likes of Alan Shearer, Tim Sherwood, Chris Sutton, and Colin Hendry. However, since that famous season the club have only managed to win two trophies, the League Cup (2002) and the UEFA Intertoto Cup (2007), and if truth be told it may be some time until they claim another, although promotion back up to the top-flight is the main goal.
A mixed set of recent results has seen Blackburn Rovers collect wins versus Brentford, Aston Villa and Nottingham Forest while suffering adverse results at Barnsley, Reading and Brighton and Hove Albion. Draws against Wolverhampton Wanderers, Bristol City, Preston North End and Fulham has seen them show mid-table form at best.
