JASON Lowe is refusing to rule out making right back his long-term position if it is for the good of Blackburn Rovers.

Lowe believes he came on ‘leaps and bounds’ as a centre midfielder last season.

But the 22-year-old has been thrust back into the role in which he started his Rovers career after injuries have left Gary Bowyer with just four fully fit senior defenders.

Lowe, if pushed, says he prefers to play in midfield.

But he is confident he can do just as good a job at right back – and the team player is happy to operate in that position for as long as Rovers boss Bowyer wants him to.

Lowe said: “If the manager and the team needs me to play full back then it’s no problem – and it’s the same if they want me to slot back into central midfield.

“I feel I’ve got a pretty good football brain and I can read the game pretty well so, from that respect, I can slot into the different roles and I’m equally comfortable in either.

“Full back is not alien to me because I played there for a Premier League and I felt I came out of it with a bit of credit, so it’s something I’m not afraid to go in there and do.

“Equally I’ve been brought up as a central midfield player and I believe I came on leaps and bounds last year in that position.

“But whichever role I get put in, I just want to continue to improve.”

Lowe is expected to continue at right back in tomorrow’s trip to Blackpool although Bowyer does have the option of putting Ben Marshall there.

But wherever he plays Lowe will be looking for a ‘reaction’ to Tuesday’s Capital One Cup loss to Scunthorpe United.

It proved a bittersweet night for the Academy graduate.

He captained Rovers for the first time in his senior career but he was unable to prevent them from crashing to a 1-0 defeat, a result he labeled as ‘bitterly disappointing’.

Lowe reckons a win over Blackpool would help right the wrongs of midweek.

But the England U21 international disagrees this is the perfect time to face Pool – and insists he has paid no attention to the problems engulfing the troubled Bloomfield Road outfit.

“I take zero notice of what happens over there, I’m just focused on what we’re doing and what we have to do to win the game,” said Lowe, who admits it was ‘proud moment for me and my family’ to lead Rovers out against Scunthorpe.

“Every team goes through an opposition’s strengths and weaknesses but ultimately you’ve got to do your job on the day.

“Every Saturday there’s something that will surprise you and you have to react to it and this game will be no different.

“We’ve just got to focus on what we’ve got to do and if everybody is at it, I’m sure we’ll be fine.”

He's far too versatile for that - he could even play right back in the changing room.

Have some bottle Bowyer and play Cairney in his correct position. Has to be Evans/Cairney in the centre mid tomorrow. Either KIng/Marshall on right wing and Conway on the left.

I might be calling it too early but I think Lowe has a choice regarding his career in the long-term - either play right-back at a higher level, possibly Premier League or play centre-midfield in the Championship for the rest of his career.

For me , he has all the qualities required to be a good right back - tough in the tackle, decent on the ball, reasonably quick and very good stamina.

We've suffered from having lightweight right backs in the last couple of seasons and Lowe for me can fill that gap.

Jesus Frenchie, you been on the vino this early! :-)

Lowe is a decent, hard working defensive midfielder who gets a lot of blame for others errors, I remember him trying to run the midfield on his own while the two experienced show ponies, Murphy and Etuhu refused to come out of the centre circle, probably because there wasn't a clause in their contracts enabling them to do so.

Perhaps it's his association with those awful days that has turned so many armchair managers against him?

On the other hand he is a decent right back, ok he doesn't bomb forward enough, but the descriptive "defensive midfielder" might give a clue as to why.

My first away game for nearly 20 years, as we don't have a great record there a decent display and hopefully a win will suit me fine.

Lowe and Williamson are two decent midfield players in there own right and get far too much stick than they deserve. Playing them together is far too defensive and is not fair on either of them as they get the blame for it. Lowe was excellent as right back against Cardiff and should stay there for the time being, Can't afford to slip up against Blackpool GB or we will start to loose ground already. Draw not good enough.

The problem with Lowey is that he doesn't turn and look to go forward. He's a defensively minded CM when he plays there. To that end I prefer him at RB with at least ONE CM being of the offensive persuasion.

Surprised that was his first time as captain. I'd rather him as captain over Big GH.

We've suffered from having lightweight right backs in the last couple of seasons and Lowe for me can fill that gap.
I am not sure he tackles like a fullback or positions himself properly. He certainly does not compete in the air on crosses - he ball watches - and has little threat down the line - he passes the ball back inside almost all the time. Therefore, he is not a proper fullback at all in my view. Sorry.
