Lancashire Telegraph: Blackburn Rovers fans' jury Blackburn Rovers fans' jury

Who should be Blackburn Rovers’ right back in both the short and long term and why?

ADAM Henley broke into the team with such promise. However I don't feel he has the confidence or self-belief at this point and that is a huge obstacle to his development.

Contrastingly Todd Kane has the confidence but lacks the awareness at times, especially defensively.

In the long term, Blackburn desperately need a replacement for next season and I’d look at Bournemouth’s Adam Smith.

In the short term, I’d alternate between Michael Keane and Jason Lowe as Keane would provide defensive strength and extra aerial ability for set-pieces and Lowe would provide more dependability.

KELVIN WILKINS

DRAWING from the shallow pool we actually possess it can seem much of a muchness.

Adam Henley once again required the Boy Scouts after being tied in knots on Saturday and his initial error led to the Leicester goal.

However Todd Kane continually fails to seize his chance, seeming sloppy and unaware of positioning.

I liked Jason Lowe as a Premier League right back and certainly the ball moved quicker through midfield on Saturday without him, with no worsening in defensive cover, so I plump for Lowe.

SIMON SMITH

Quite frankly we need to sign a tried and tested right back who is experienced at Championship level.

Neither Adam Henley nor Todd Kane have played consistently well and have been exposed far too often and far too easily.

Jason Lowe can fill in but it’s not his natural position and is no solution.

If Grant Hanley is fit then experimenting with Michael Keane is worth a try in the short term.

I would contend that the weakness in this position has cost us points and games so the real solution is a new recruit.

Ah...so Simon Smith thinks Williamson moves the ball quicker than Jason Lowe and Paul Yates wants to see the return of Bradley Orr!!
,

Short term lets put Keane there and long term, work hard on Henleys positioning and defensive side, because he's got a good touch and electric pace!!
(Get Henley and Josh King running at teams and they wont be able to cope...if we can sort out their defensive elements :))

to be perfectly honest neither player is a good right back so we need to realise that and persevering with the present two is futile and detrimental to the teams progress,

Given that Lowe is such a blue eyed boy that his return to the first team is virtually guaranteed, let's try him at right back until the end of the season. Henley just hasn't got the talent and Kane is too unpredictable.

LOL.

With Lowe still a risk with his injury if Hanley is fit I would switch Killgallon or Kean to right back leave Spurr on the left.

Cairney and Evans in central midfield, Conway left and either Dunny or Varney, right with Rhodes playing just off Gestede.

Now that is a team taking shape.

Hey come on Owd Nick, I know we're struggling at right back but I certainly wouldn't play a left footed centre half there. Keane maybe, but Killgallon definitely not.

You clowns keep going on about this fantastic team and where are you in the league?

Third?
Forth?
Fifth?
Surely no lower then sixth??
Seventh?
Eighth?
Ninth?
Tenth?
You're eleventh? Seriously?

This fantastic rebuilding job has taken you two seasons and you have reached 11th place in the Championship.

What an absolute unmitigated shambles.
