GARY Bowyer will take temporary charge of Blackburn Rovers for tomorrow's Championship fixture at Barnsley.

The Rovers reserve team coach took first team training today following the sacking of manager Henning Berg yesterday.

Backroom staff Eric Black, Iain Brunskill and Bobby Mimms also departed along with Berg.

Global advisor Shebby Singh was at Brockhall together with Judan Ali, who has been shadowing the Rovers' coaching staff in recent weeks and is under consideration for a permanent role at the club.

But, contrary to some reports, neither Singh nor Ali took training today.
