Boss Bowyer will not panic buy
BLACKBURN Rovers boss Gary Bowyer will not be forced into panic buys.
Rovers fans have been waiting for Bowyer to swoop after the loan window first opened three weeks ago.
At that time the Ewood chief was hopeful he would be able to boost a squad hit by injuries to key players.
But Bowyer has yet to bring in any new faces to Ewood Park.
And he insists he will not be panic buying.
Bowyer said: “We are still looking and we are still speaking to people.
“We’re still taking in games and talking to people but we’re not going to bring someone in just for the sake of bringing someone in.”
While Bowyer will continue to look at possible loanees and free agents, the imminent of return of David Dunn and DJ Campbell will allow him to temper his pursuit for attacking reinforcements.
He said: “When we do get everyone back we will have a very competitive squad.”
The Rovers players enjoyed a day off yesterday but will return to Brockhall today to continue preparations for Saturday’s trip to Bournemouth as they go in search of a first away win of the season.
Rovers have won just 15 of their last 84 away matches – a horrible run which dates back five seasons.
Bowyer knows they will have to improve that wretched record if they are to climb up the Championship standings and push for a place in the play-offs.
He hopes the fact that his squad have had a free week to prepare for the clash with the Cherries will help them to victory at the Goldsands Stadium on Saturday.
Bowyer said: “It’s given us the opportunity to work on certain things that we felt we just couldn’t work on last week, given the demand of having three games in a week.
“This week will provide us with the opportunity and we will be better for it.
“Corry Evans said it himself, it has given us a good chance to get to know each other on the training ground, placing the emphasis on building relationships.
“Hopefully we will see the fruits of our labour on Saturday.”
