Evans will be 'like new signing' for Blackburn Rovers

This Is Lancashire: Corry Evans Corry Evans

BLACKBURN Rovers boss Gary Bowyer has hailed the return of Corry Evans to full fitness as like having a new signing.

The all-action midfielder could make his Rovers comeback in Saturday’s trip to Middlesbrough after spending nearly four months on the sidelines.

Evans, 23, sustained ankle-ligament damage while playing for Northern Ireland in their World Cup qualifier in Israel on October 15 – robbing his manager of a player he has big plans for.

“Corry is doing well, we’ll keep building him up and he will look to be involved in the squad at the weekend,” said Bowyer, who signed Evans from Hull City in August.

“If he doesn’t make it then he will definitely play some part in the U21 game on Monday.”

“He’s only started six games for us this season and when you look at the fact that we’re playing our 30th league game on Saturday, it shows just what a big loss he has been for us.

“So having him back will be like a new signing for us. He’s a top player with a good understanding of the all-round game.

“He can pass, he can tackle, he can score goals, he uses his size above his means – and he’s a bit of a leader as well.

“He was just starting to make the impact we knew he could when he got a nasty injury but we’re looking forward to him coming back.”

Evans is expected to play some part in the U21 match with Tottenham at Leigh Sports Village on Monday (7pm).

Bowyer has also received good news on Tommy Spurr after the left-back – the only Rovers player to start every Championship match this season – suffered a gash to the head in last weekend’s 2-0 home win over Blackpool.

Bowyer said: “Tommy has got nine stitches in his head but it’s not a problem for him.

“He’s back training and he’ll back playing on Saturday.”

Midfielder Lee Williamson is also back in training after concussion ruled him out against Blackpool.

Josh King came off with a leg injury in the same game – just 20 minutes after coming on as a substitute.

The Norwegian will have a scan to determine the extent of any damage caused.

Bowyer has already lost one winger to injury with Ben Marshall facing a fight to be fit again this season – but the Rovers boss has been delighted with the impact Craig Conway has made since his transfer deadline day move from Cardiff City.

Bowyer said: “We’ve put Craig through the rest of his fitness tests and he looks in great shape. We’re delighted with the shape he is in and the impact he made on Saturday.”

Meanwhile, Rovers striker Dean Rittenberg has been called up into the England U18s squad for their friendly with Belgium U18s at St George’s Park on February 18.

Just a simple copy and paste exercise here for the author having opened an older article and replaced "Reuben Rochina" with "Corry Evans".

“... having him back will be like a new signing for us. He’s a top player"

What a load of nonsense.

Good to have him back as he was proving to be one of our more influential players before his injury. Will add quality to midfield which is now looking good with Dunny back and Cairney continuing his good form, if we can avoid injuries.

We might see a change of tactics from GB now that we have the players to push forward. He's building a strong midfield, two good strikers and now two attacking wingers. Just a pity about the Marshall injury. We also need cover in defence and the jig saw is nearing completion. It'll take time but GB is turning it round.

Our next 3 games are Middlesbrough (away), Reading (away) & Brighton (home)

I'd like to see 6 points out of those games, but realistically may only get 4?

What do you think we'll get?

A draw at Boro and another at home to Brighton, I would like you to take the points off Reading but they will no doubt pull your pants down. 2 points is probably your lot from these 3 games.

You never know which Rovers 'turn up' ....realistically I'd expect something from Middlesborough (not won in last three) and Brighton at home. Reading ? well we'll have to be at our best, but I think four points, possibly six from those three games and we'll have done well.

Remember Evans running the game a Wigan before he went off and he looked like a class player then. Definitely welcome him back and it will push Williamson further down the pecking order which can only be good news.
Things are looking up and the squad is now getting stonger.

P.S keep up the good work ignoring Chicken muppet he is clearly getting bored now commenting on everybody elses comments as nobody is responding to him.

We where only losing money when we had all the previous players at our club as the wage bill was too High.

GB is slowly clearing out the deadwood reducing our wage bill massively, Will burnley be able to cope with player wages next year when Ings asks for a pay rise? Maybe, you can only pay for your current team now by having a small squad, Once 3 players are injured your stuck then pal.

Nine points no problem. We are shaping into a very solid outfit with the best quality squad we have had for ages. Almost all the deadwood gang are gone out of the club now and a really good set of decent players have been brought in. GB has probably found his best 15 players now and his managerial skills are growing week by week. Still a way to go - but its all getting better much quicker than most of us thought it would. The play-offs are definitely in reach now this season - which is a bonus for the club and a massive tribute to GB - and anything can happen then!

GB has generally done well with his signings and deserves a lot of credit. I am also a lot happier now he is playing two strikers and includes Taylor most games, something we have been missing all season. Just needs to brush up on his tactics and be a little bit more adventurous and we may have a good chance of play offs next year if not this season.

We are still short in defence and we have no replacement for CB if either of them get injured unless Lucas Neal re-signs a short term contract trouble is that might cost us penalty wise on the pitch as he is good at flattening the opposition.

Taking shape now, lots of options especially in midfield and with that pressure for places which is needed in any good team.

All that and GB has moved something like 20 players out one way or another.

I thought Evans was our best player at the time he got injured so hopefully he will hit the ground running.

It isn't just the guys on the pitch now, the quality on the bench is going to have an impact.

I'm not normally optimistic regarding Rovers, especially away from home, but I really do like what I see now and even we have to start a run sometime, with the fire-power we now have available Saturday will be a good start.

I am looking for a minimum of 7 points out of these three games, no reason why we shouldn't be looking at 9.

Bloody hell Frenchy have you been on that French wine again, joking apart I would love nine points but realistically I would settle for seven, agree with the strong squad comments and I can't wait to stuff the Dingles down at Ewwod.
GBs purchases have been great so far, there will be the odd ones that don't fit but he is buying one hundred percenters who give everything, the age levels are going down and should (and it's only a should) we not go up this season I can't wait for next season already.

Correct, GB needs to grow some balls and drop Lowe with Evans back. The keeper and back 4 pick themselves, then Conway, cairney & Evans plus one of Marshall, Taylor and king & the two strikers. However I fear GB will revert back to one 4-5-1 again and just slot Evans in place of Williamson .

Playing 4-4-2, those four across the middle would do some real damage. As somebod else said, probably one of the best midfields in the league. There's not much to lose, might aswell go all out for the playoffs.

Conway, Evans and Cairney is a definite though, we could have the best Midfield in the league with these lot!
Correct, GB needs to grow some balls and drop Lowe with Evans back. The keeper and back 4 pick themselves, then Conway, cairney & Evans plus one of Marshall, Taylor and king & the two strikers. However I fear GB will revert back to one 4-5-1 again and just slot Evans in place of Williamson .

You're right, there's not much to lose as we're almost guaranteed safety with our points to date plus a few more Once safety is certain GB could use the rest of the season to experiment with his best 11 / formations etc. ready for next season. We might as well go all guns blazing for the playoffs and see where it gets us.....IMO.

Just hope we can keep Evans and the rest of our best 11 fit for rest of season. Although it pains me to say it Burnleys good season has been down to very few injuries and almost playing the same 11 week in week out. Bowyer is definitley building a decent side and i hope we can sneak into playoffs, but i feel next season we will be a lot stronger.

If Burnley had half of our injuries it would have crippled them. I don't like to see anyone injured but there's still a long way to go and the law of averages says they will get injuries sooner or later !!!! Like every other team.

Change the record Mungo, you've been saying this since the start of the season. Hoping and praying for injuries to your rivals is a sign of how little confidence you have in your own team. We have suffered a few injuries this season but we have maintained our challenge at the top.

Now that you have jettisoned 17 players you are a much weaker proposition than earlier in the season. And losing your captain Dann and most creative player in Rochina could well be decisions that come back to haunt you in the forthcoming derby.

We might see a change of tactics from GB now that we have the players to push forward. He's building a strong midfield, two good strikers and now two attacking wingers. Just a pity about the Marshall injury. We also need cover in defence and the jig saw is nearing completion. It'll take time but GB is turning it round.
I must have missed something. 2 attacking wingers? I guess Conway is one and the other? Please don't say King or Taylor.

Another chin dribbling glue sniffing deluded no dad who thinks the moon is made of cheese.

It doesn't take much to please a no dad does it? 4 or 5 no mark signings who couldn't get a game in the PL and they think they're home and dry.

Well Hawking let me just remind you about a little something called FFP. It DOES apply to you regardless of what you think and just because it hasn't been mentioned for a while don't think it's gone away.
So before you start greasing yourself up and dishing out the reach-arounds just remember that you've got a financial locomotive heading your way and you're currently handcuffed to the track.

Evans, top player! With him and ZeDunn in midfield I can see a run of wins coming up. Certainly we will have too much in midfield for the Galacticos of ' Turf . They mainly play long to Ings / Vokes and have nowt in midfield.
I can see us giving them a football lesson at Ewood. Not for the first time eh?
Yep, we can pull them back down to earth with a firm thud.
They wont see it coming either...shhh dont tell 'em

any player back from injury at this time of the season has got to be positive so the return of Evans is welcome,lets start to impose our game on the rest of the aspiring premiership wanabees and make sure we dont drop away tamely,I have a feeling we will be battling it out for the final play off spot with our old foes down the road, and that is very realistic,,
