Bowyer praises defensive pair as Rhodes left out of Scotland squad

BLACKBURN Rovers boss Gary Bowyer believes the club is not missing former captain Scott Dann – instead insisting that the current pairing of Grant Hanley and Matt Kilgallon can form an even more effective partnership.

Dann and Hanley were an integral pairing for Rovers before the former moved to Premier League side Crystal Palace on transfer deadline day.

But Bowyer believes Hanley, who has been called into the Scotland squad for their friendly with Poland on March 5, has benefited from the experience of Kilgallon alongside him.

He said: “When Scott went and, given how he played and how forged a great partnership with Grant, there’s an initial question of how well the two lads would gel.

“But you look at them on their last two performances and you’d think they had been playing for a good season and a half.

“We’re delighted with Killa. I can’t speak highly enough of him, of how he’s been since he joined the football club.

“He uses his experience and passes it on to the younger ones and he’s never been an ounce of trouble.

“He’s a fantastic addition for us and now he’s in and he’s playing really well.”

And Bowyer believes that the left-sided Kilgallon, the former Sheffield United man can also play at left back, has improved Rovers’ defensive shape.

“Matt is naturally left-sided so it’s enabled Grant to put on his natural side, which is the right-hand side, and it’s helped everybody,” added Bowyer.

“It’s something we’re looking for them to build on. When you’re on a natural side you’re far more confident when on the ball and with how we want to play and how we want to go about it, it’s important that they are comfortable in having possession. It’s something that enables us to work further on from now until the end of the season.”

Meanwhile, Rovers trio Jordan Rhodes, Craig Conway and Tom Cairney all missed out on call-ups to the Scotland squad for the Poland friendly.

Rhodes’ omission was the most surprising given the goalscoring form the striker has shown so far this season but Scotland boss Gordan Strachan has opted to select just three forwards in his squad.

And the Scotland chief admitted he had faced a tough task in selecting his players for the Hampden Park clash.

“This is the first time really I have had to leave out players who are doing well at their club,” he said.

“I have had to phone four, five or six and say: ‘Look, you are unfortunate at this time. I think this is the squad for us. That’s not to say that the next squad you'll not be in.’ “Normally it’s quite easy but it’s been a hard pick this time.

“There are players unfortunate not to be in the squad but we see no reason to bring them along when they are not going to play, when these guys here have definitely got a chance of playing.

“The guys who are not here, I have spoken to them in the last couple of months, and they know it’s been appreciated what they have done.”

It will be interesting to see what the team will be this weekend with Rovers having had a decent rest, forget the internationals they are a couple of weeks away and the most important game is the next one.

We have to go for the win there are no other options now, one point is simply not worth the effort.

Go for the win, if we loose trying, so what?

who knows Mr Nick he might play some more of the bench warmers he has signed in recent times - win or loose it wont make any difference - as I have said all along mid table or below is where the Rovers will finish - but in the meantime I do wish the LT would change the photo of GB they keep fronting with their statements with he looks absolutely ga ga - not inspirational at all !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
OUT WITH THE COWBOYS AND INDIANS

You wll be lucky if he changes his approach as he has adopted this stance all season apart from the Leeds game where he played 3 up front, got at them from the start and it was a brilliant success. But for some reason he has declined to repeat that approach from there on. If GB carries on with this cautious approach he will soon safely park us into no mans land and well away from the play off zone with no chance of getting back You are right we need to attack with more of the Leeds away game philosophy otherwise we will be soon cut adrift therefore this weeks line up wll be very interesting to see if he responds, but after the Middlesborough game when their keeper had only one safe save to make it will be curtains for us if he doesn't. I am also not surprised Rhodes has been dropped by Scotland as he has lost a bit of sharpness recently for me..

Is Eckersley playing? says...

Ah, yes. We seem to have now moved from 'must win' to 'must not lose'. By Saturday tea-time all the optimists (what's left of 'em), together with the Venky lovers, (what's left of 'em) should all go quiet and look forward to next season, which will be the fourth out of the Prem of course. But yep. we've made progress, haven't we? After all, we are just above half way in the league now. Gets harder every year, eh? Never mind, get yourself another ticket and help them to stay in business for another year.....

Nice trio of Uber negative posts there before a ball is kicked, but Eckersley is a low life, low level troll as is Dingle Dave. Rovers 45 is also looking dodgy, another bogus troll pretending to be a Rover.
Anyway lets wait and see what the team can do at Reading before we start moaning

If you are a supporter of 60 years why waste your time with a post that essentially says nothing. Nobody loves Venkys, we all know they are the main cause of all this BUT we all know the team is better now than it was 12 months ago. Can we at least not take that positive.

With your attitude I'm sure when McCarthy or Santa Cruz or Bellamy were playing you were saying "should never have sold Shearer, they're ruining the club etc"

Oh dear mr pensioner you must be going a little ga ga as well i am passionate about the rovers but not about the owners or second rate manager and players that have been brought in. Being trampled on by idiotic owners and their cohorts may mean nothing to you let alone taking the club to depths beyond belief but to me and thousands of others it does so put that in your clay pipe and smoke it.

How is the team NOT better. Were Murphy and Etuhu better than Cairney and Evans? Was Kazim-Richards better than Gestede? was Formica better than Gestede. Was Rekik better than Spurr? Was Pedersen (2013 version) better than King or Marshall? Was Gomes (2013 version) more use to us than Conway. Was Cameron Stewrat a better loan signing than Varney? Was it a good idea to be paying Givet, Orr, Best, Nunes, Henrique, Edinho and Riberio wages?

There are my reasons as to why we are a better team than last year. Can't wait for your reasons as to why we are not ..........

It will be interesting to see what the team will be this weekend with Rovers having had a decent rest, forget the internationals they are a couple of weeks away and the most important game is the next one.

We have to go for the win there are no other options now, one point is simply not worth the effort.

Go for the win, if we loose trying, so what?
Dream on - Bowyer will try to get a 0-0 and it won't work as per normal.
The Leeds game was a lesson to be learnt but Bowyer seemingly didn't take notice.

I would have thought "must not lose" was a better position to be in than "must win", so I'm not clear what your point is.

Why don't you grow up and make some constructive comments yourself for change instead of living in your little dream world always critising other peoples views. You are one of the biggest jokers on here, get yourself a life and learn to accept that other people can have an opinion that may be different to your own narrow blinkered vision of events.
I agree with your sentiment, but I think your aim may be a bit misguided.

Have you ever, ever seen a constructive comment from Dave or Knackersley on here,? All they ever do is repeat the same tired moaning mantras, they cannot debate because they have nothing creative to contribute. They are part of the problem, not the solution.

The wild one may be excessive in his optimism but he is passionate about Rovers and he shares his opinions and suggestions about what's happening on and off the field.

Well thanks for that contribution, insightful as ever....

I believe the problem now is that the club is trying to recover from the most devastating period in its history and while good men like GB are grafting to turn things around there are those who are helping and those who are not.

If constantly moaning about recent history makes you feel big and clever then you crack on son, it's amusing to have someone to take the pi55 out of occasionally, but I think everyone can see what you and your mate are, and it certainly isn't anything useful to BRFC.

With your attitude I'm sure when McCarthy or Santa Cruz or Bellamy were playing you were saying "should never have sold Shearer, they're ruining the club etc"
Strewth. Are you serious? The team is now better that 12 months ago? Is that the best you can do? Wow! Can't wait for next season, then.. We can have some more 'must win' games to look forward to ........
How is the team NOT better. Were Murphy and Etuhu better than Cairney and Evans? Was Kazim-Richards better than Gestede? was Formica better than Gestede. Was Rekik better than Spurr? Was Pedersen (2013 version) better than King or Marshall? Was Gomes (2013 version) more use to us than Conway. Was Cameron Stewrat a better loan signing than Varney? Was it a good idea to be paying Givet, Orr, Best, Nunes, Henrique, Edinho and Riberio wages?

There are my reasons as to why we are a better team than last year. Can't wait for your reasons as to why we are not ..........

Still waiting .................
Oh, the irony. Totally lost on you, I'm afraid. A man goes salmon fishing. Comes back with a jar full of tadpoles. Says tohis wife 'Look. One or two are quite big' , Think about it.
Like most people on here I'm struggling to see your point.

Venkys were useless everyone knows that but they could easily have taken us down to league one and out of business. At least that has been avoided and now we are slowly but steadily improving. Most undesirable elements within the club have been removed and a couple still remain.

I don't read enough of your posts to know if you attend matches but if you do you would notice that the mood has changed somewhat since the dark Kean era days.

Yes They screwed up, yes we all wish they had never taken over but until another Jack Walker comes along (if that's what your waiting for it could be a long wait) then we have to get on with it. As my previous post shows the squad has improved considerably and if it does so again in the next transfer window we may not be too far away next season.

Agree ?

60 years is a long time, makes my 44 years look pedestrian, but I think we have different outlooks on life.

There have been so many ups and downs in that 44 years I have lost count, but the one unswerving fact is that I support my club through thick and thin, I have seen them at the bottom of Division 3 and the top of the PL.

Ok two of the last three years have been disastrous for us but **** happens in life, you just have to deal with it.

It amuses me somewhat that the "enjoyment" you refer to prior to Venky's taking over consisted of Allardyce's hump and hope hoof-ball tactics, I certainly didn't find that enjoyable at all, we played better football when we were bottom of the third division.

Strangely enough that final year of Allardyce's reign was the time when I came closest to walking away, I am glad I didn't.

Was Kazim-Richards better than Gestede? was Formica better than Gestede. Was Rekik better than Spurr? Was Pedersen (2013 version) better than King or Marshall? Was Gomes (2013 version) more use to us than Conway. Was Cameron Stewrat a better loan signing than Varney? Was it a good idea to be paying Givet, Orr, Best, Nunes, Henrique, Edinho and Riberio wages? There are my reasons as to why we are a better team than last year. Can't wait for your reasons as to why we are not .......... Still waiting .................[/p][/quote]Oh, the irony. Totally lost on you, I'm afraid. A man goes salmon fishing.

Is Eckersley playing? says...

I see most of the usual suspects have had their say now so 'll say au revoir for a couple of weeks. To save you the trouble I know I won't be missed. By the time I come back the play offs will, no doubt, be out of sight and the Venky regime will more than likely have led us to losing our record against our not-so-nearest-and dearest. That, my friends will be the ultimate ignominy for a once proud Lancashire club. Let's hope it doesn't happen. :-)

Why don't you grow up and make some constructive comments yourself for change instead of living in your little dream world always critising other peoples views. You are one of the biggest jokers on here, get yourself a life and learn to accept that other people can have an opinion that may be different to your own narrow blinkered vision of events.
I agree with your sentiment, but I think your aim may be a bit misguided.

Have you ever, ever seen a constructive comment from Dave or Knackersley on here,? All they ever do is repeat the same tired moaning mantras, they cannot debate because they have nothing creative to contribute. They are part of the problem, not the solution.

The wild one may be excessive in his optimism but he is passionate about Rovers and he shares his opinions and suggestions about what's happening on and off the field.
Thought you'd be along. So I'm part of the probem, eh? I think you should consider what the problem is before blaming some-one for it.
Well thanks for that contribution, insightful as ever....

I believe the problem now is that the club is trying to recover from the most devastating period in its history and while good men like GB are grafting to turn things around there are those who are helping and those who are not.

If constantly moaning about recent history makes you feel big and clever then you crack on son, it's amusing to have someone to take the pi55 out of occasionally, but I think everyone can see what you and your mate are, and it certainly isn't anything useful to BRFC.

If you can't be constructive you should at least try to be funny Dave, that's just another dull post with you shouting your boring mantra again.

Its mildly amusing watching you two prove my point but it's really not much of a challenge, now, off you Feck, come back when you think of something interesting to say about the football son. :-)

I'm with you WR, why continuously look for a negative in life never mind football, why Ecks and DD bother to post at all is beyond me, they appear to hate the rovers, I've had a pop or two at this and that but continuous moaning day after day good god bring the Dingles back at least you have a laugh with most of them.
It really is perplexing that my posts - which are factualy accurate should meet wth disdain and insults. We live in a country of free expression, you know ! Why not try arguing my points for a change- or are you as blind to the obvious as your posts indicate? Am I not entitled, after 60 years of supporting Rovers, to criticise people that have ruined my enjoyment? Why are your opinions more valid than mine? If you don't like my posts, don't read 'em.
If you are a supporter of 60 years why waste your time with a post that essentially says nothing. Nobody loves Venkys, we all know they are the main cause of all this BUT we all know the team is better now than it was 12 months ago. Can we at least not take that positive.

With your attitude I'm sure when McCarthy or Santa Cruz or Bellamy were playing you were saying "should never have sold Shearer, they're ruining the club etc"
Opinions are like a..eholes every one has one
I am not sure you are factually correct on that statement - surely the Burnley trolls that come on here dont have one? Thats why all the sh*te pours out of their nasty mouths on this site every day!

Hmm eckersley yes the venky's did alot of damage the past is the past gb has got out most players that was signed for silly wages and got the players he wants playing for the team playing well at times yes some of his player choice has been poor if any teams want to get promoted then all games are a must win. Reason why people moan at you is because every single post of yours buts down everything to do with rovers most fan's of any other teams would be encouraged that there team have only lost 2 in the last 10 games four clean sheets in that 10 currently 4 unbeaten yes 3 of the last 4 have been draws but at least there not losses. If venky's left tmoz and the new owners managed to get José Mourinho to managed the team you would still find a way to moan about something why not try saying a positive post for once it won't hurt you.

I believe the problem now is that the club is trying to recover from the most devastating period in its history and while good men like GB are grafting to turn things around there are those who are helping and those who are not. If constantly moaning about recent history makes you feel big and clever then you crack on son, it's amusing to have someone to take the pi55 out of occasionally, but I think everyone can see what you and your mate are, and it certainly isn't anything useful to BRFC. RTID.
Well Mr Greengrocer with your type of comments I seem to think that your fruit and veg will be in the same state/condition as the Rovers - well past their sell by date in other words **** poor!!! OUT WITH THE COWBOYS AND INDIANS
If you can't be constructive you should at least try to be funny Dave, that's just another dull post with you shouting your boring mantra again. Its mildly amusing watching you two prove my point but it's really not much of a challenge, now, off you Feck, come back when you think of something interesting to say about the football son. :-)
Mr Greengrocer its plain for everyone to see like your fruit and veg youve got a 'grade c' brain!!!! OUT WITH THE COWBOYS AND INDIANS
You really have not got the hang of this have you Dave, try reading my last comment again.....concentrat e on 4 words, constructive, funny, interesting, and football, I know they are new to you but you should give them a try at least once in your life
GC there's no point in even attempting to talk to dave because the only opinion that matters his is own which all he does is slag something or someone off he can dish it out but can't take it and yes i know dingle dave out with the cowboys and indians maybe you should do what you keep saying and out with yourself for a change.

Problem is, he has no desire to see a positive, on the basis that the Venkys have made some silly decisions since taking over, the fact were not a premiership team, which of course, he doesn't grasp the fact that only 20 teams can play in the premiership, so some teams will get relegated! So yet they are still funding the backlash of their idiocy and giving bowyer (with his amazing first year in management) the freedom to make decisions. They have learn to keep their gobs shut, let real decent football people manage the football (bar hendry, but to be fair he's doing a good job)... The team has become a really strong team with bags and bags of potential to improve, anyone who went down to the matches can see the potential and quality we have....

So in Summary Dave/eckersley, if you came to the games you would see that things are really positive down at rovers at the moment... And if you came down and couldn't see the positives, then you must know nothing about football, regardless of how long you have called yourself a fan! And that lads, is a FACT

Good god you lot. Get a grip! I hate to admit it but the playoffs are still an option for you lot; fading a little but still something that can be pulled in. Start being more positive!
True, but people like Ekersley, Daft Dave and a few others actually want Rovers to fail simply to prove they were right.

Sad isn't it?

As you are finding this season it's very easy to be a supporter for any club when it's all going well, but it takes real supporters to get behind their club when it's going tits up.
