BLACKBURN Rovers boss Gary Bowyer is aiming to bolster his defence in the loan market after being given the go-ahead by Venky’s to add to his squad.

Bowyer discussed the situation with the owners at the weekend after injuries to Matt Kilgallon and Tommy Spurr left him short in defence.

MORE TOP STORIES:

Kilgallon is out of tonight’s League Cup tie at home to Scunthorpe United with a back problem and is already a doubt for Saturday’s league match at Blackpool, while Spurr faces at least a fortnight on the sidelines.

Bowyer said: “I’ve spoken with the board over the weekend and that’s something we’re going to try to look at and see who we can bring in and if we can.

“We’ve got to make a decision but it has to be the right type, we’re not just going to bring somebody in for the sake of it. It has to be somebody to improve the squad.

“We’re not blessed with numbers in terms of the defensive department, in terms of senior players I think we’re left with four senior defenders, then you’ve got your youngsters in Jack O’Connell and Yann Songo’o who went out last season and got loan experience.

“The owners have been very good with me ever since I came in. I fully understand the situation with Financial Fair Play and the money that they have ploughed into this football club.

“But whenever I’ve asked they’ve been very supportive.

“It’s a two-way thing because over the last year we’ve certainly helped them in terms of reducing the wage bill, and not just that, but also increasing the value of the squad.”

Bowyer confirmed that former West Ham United defender Jordan Spence and Benin goalkeeper Fabien Farnolle are no longer training with the club after both recently came in on trial.

He is still interested in Manchester United’s Michael Keane, who had a temporary spell with Rovers at the end of last season, but said he had heard no further news about whether Louis van Gaal was prepared to let the defender go back out on loan.

Reports in South Wales on Sunday night suggested Cardiff City and their boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, a former United player, are now confident of winning the race to land Keane on a season-long loan.

“I feel sorry for Manchester United and I feel sorry for Michael Keane because there’s a lot of speculation going on about it,” Bowyer said.

“Until Mr Van Gaal makes his mind up he’s still a Manchester United player.

“Michael has acquitted himself well in the games that I’ve watched while he was on their tour.

“We can try as hard as we want and Cardiff can try as hard as they want, but if Man United don’t want to loan him out or make a decision on that there’s nothing that both clubs can do.

“Nothing has changed from our point of view with it.

“He had a fantastic time here, he enjoyed it, the lads loved him and he’s grown as a player.

“You can see that with the level of his performances.”

Think about it guys.

If FFP had been around in the days of Jack Walker;

- He wouldn't have been able to invest one tenth, or even less in the club he loved.
- It's extremely unlikely he would have been unable to attract the likes of Dalglish, Shearer, et al.
- We would almost certainly still have a cowshed stadium just like Turf Moor.
- We could possibly have made it to the PL, who knows, but just like Burnley this season we wouldn't stand a chance of staying there without investment.
- Our name would not be on that esteemed trophy.

Think about it.

Indeed, FFP is a protection racket engineered by the G14 cartel of clubs, to prevent newcomers from muscling in on their monopoly of football income.

Yes Burnley beat us, yes they went up, and as much as I hate to admit it yes they will probably stay up. We need to duplicate their methods, we need to start over and model ourselves on the Clarets, we are a few years behind them but we have to start somewhere.

Bowyer need a defender and a full back and the squad looks better now with the likes of Rhodes Baptiste Cairney Gestede Dunn King Conway Hanley Olsson Robinson Evans Marshall Lowe Williamson Brown and Varney.
Keeping the squad fit is important anymore injuries to key players would spell a disaster for promotion campaign .

that is by no means a given. we can never know for sure.

however, looking at some of the 'deadwood' we've been so happy to see depart, it is pretty certain that we would have had to do some significant strengthening to stay in the prem. that would have required money... which we didn't really have.

i think there is a good argument to say we were on borrowed time in the prem. clubs of our size will have periods in and out of the top league. 20 years ago, a significant reason for our journey to the top was down to magnificent investment from uncle jack, and i feel no embarrassment about that. people have rightly pointed out that our investment was no different to what a number of other clubs were doing. but even that group of players and staff at the club dropped out of the top league for a few years.
venkys brought some real naivety and some catastrophic recruitment decisions, and we dropped out of the top league again. whether we can get back up under their stewardship is to be decided, but i think we all welcome the improved approach and it seems to be bearing fruit.
what am i waffling on about...? well i guess its just a poor attempt to explain that a club like ours will have its up and downs. all we can hope for is to do things with integrity. i personally am not going to get too hung up about what league we are in. it's great to be in the prem, but it does not define us as a club. it's about how we as fans feel about our club, and at the moment, i think we feel pretty good.

Blackburn Rovers having to go cap in hand to an Indian chicken farmer to plead for funds to bring a player in ON LOAN.

It makes me sick to think of where my club was just 4 short years ago. Happily sitting 10th in the Premier League with a top English manger and a side packed with quality.

And just look at the sorry state we're in now.

We truly are an example of how not to run a football club, and the really frightening thing is that the worst is yet to come in December when all our dirty laundry will be out in the public domain ahead of our FFP de-panting. I'm embarrassed just thinking about it.

I'd give my right plum to be a well run, well respected club like Burnley.

All this gloom and doom about Fair Play Rules will be insignificant if we can get promotion to the PL this season and the picture will look completely different with a sensible wage bill and Premier League income the season after. But to get there GB has to show more ambition than he did on Friday and utilise his subs more effectively when required and also be prepared to blood some of his youngsters in the event of major injuries etc. We will also need a good slice of fortune that Burnley had last season on the injury front.

Exactly, how can Bowyer be given such backing when he makes so many schoolboy errors.

Without exaggeration we have possibly one of the weakest defences in the Championship. We are in for major problems when we come up against a team on form, I dread to think what the likes of Norwich, Wigan, Derby, Fulham, Reading and Nottingham Forest are going to do to us.

Is Bowyer the right man for the job? Another poor result and perhaps the fans will answer that question.

Why are we still fighting with the dingles day in day out?

They beat us.
They went up.
We are now sadly a league below them.
We have FFP to endure from January.

Why not stop punishing yourselves for once and be big enough to acknowledge that they are in fact the better team.

We had our fun, yes it was bought and paid for by Jack Walker, but times change. We are at best a mid table second division side and at worst, possibly after our FFP restructuring, a mid table third division side.

I would advise my fellow Rovers therefore to wind their necks in because we are starting to look very desperate and very jealous.

God help us if we cant beat Scunthorpe tonight, the Burnley fans will hammer us!

Dear Baldie,

If you spent Venkies money why are you now £65m plus in debt and rising?
Luck had nothing to do with Burnleys performance last season, good football, good management was acknowledged by most unblinkered football fans throughout the country.
Nodads were the first club to inherit a "sugar daddy" and blew it, even the family pulled the plug after his demise.
Burnleys fortunes have been earned , the REWARDS are what we can now spend/bank, whatever we are not upto our necks in debt.
Bring on FFP Lets Gloat!!

@modan, if Venkys were putting £3m a month into Blackburn Rovers, Bowyer would not be needing to ask them to fund a loan player.

@garry_stockton, II don't share @bazzer's pessimism that Rovers will go out of the League Cup in a penalty shoot-out, following a goalless draw. A victory tonight and Burnley at home in the next round.

Yes, FFP is having an impact. Sean Dyche says he's made 500 calls to agents looking to bring footballers into Burnley's squad. I think some he inquired about chose to join Blackpool , but it demonstrates just how many livelihoods FFP has already wrecked.

The League Cup is a good opportunity to play Lowe a right back and Cairney in the centre of midfield and gauge how the team's shape and flow of the game are changed as a result.

.. we all know what a farce it has made of the game. This season we have 16 games that matter about 8 where you are hopeful and the rest are bonus points when you can get them.
If they are stupid enough to throw it like confetti then take their money and run.

"Your the Dingles now of East Lancashire always have been you Tramps"

It's you're or you are - not your.

Oh, and If we've always been the dingles of East Lancashire, then how are we now the dingles of East Lancashire?

A contradiction in terms there Hawking.

Way over your head isn't it redneck?

Thanks for the laughs though.

Keeping the squad fit is important anymore injuries to key players would spell a disaster for promotion campaign .

USA China India and Russia will be superpowers by 2030.The world will have to live with four superpowers .It will be fair play at the UN with four superpowers in 2030.
Thank goodness I probably won't be around to see it.
US can handle Russia and US wants India as superpower to counterbalance China's military threats.
US cannot defeat India or China both have population of over 1 Billion have vast powerful army, huge arms industries, space technology ,can fly rockets into space put up a satellites in orbit ,nuclear weapons and icbm missiles .
The most dangerous country will be China not Russia as China could become the largest economy overtaking USA by 2030 .

Think about it guys.

If FFP had been around in the days of Jack Walker;

- He wouldn't have been able to invest one tenth, or even less in the club he loved.
- It's extremely unlikely he would have been unable to attract the likes of Dalglish, Shearer, et al.
- We would almost certainly still have a cowshed stadium just like Turf Moor.
- We could possibly have made it to the PL, who knows, but just like Burnley this season we wouldn't stand a chance of staying there without investment.
- Our name would not be on that esteemed trophy.

Think about it.

Fair Play it ain't.
yes and if the venkys had not put there oar in WE WOULD HAVE STILL BEEN IN THE PREM think about that
Of course we would! Riding high, awash with money, playing like Real Madrid, a stable and committed board, amazing young players coming through the ranks."........

.....
...........makes you wonder why the Walker Trust were so desperate to bale out!
Took the words right out of my mouth Angry.
Not rocket science Nick but you had to be at the games to see the slippery slope we were on. Venkys were naive and gullible but the Walker Trust were treacherous.
