TONY Mowbray doesn’t envisage a busy end to the transfer window for Rovers but admits there could still be incomings at Ewood Park this month.

Rovers have so far brought in Adam Armstrong, Jack Payne and Amari’i Bell, as well as making Paul Downing’s switch from MK Dons permanent.

Central midfield remains an area that Rovers are looking to improve before Wednesday’s 11pm deadline, though Mowbray said any further signings will be players for the future.

His options could be boosted further by the return of key players from injury, with Darragh Lenihan and Corry Evans having joined in with full training yesterday.

And the Ewood boss is pleased with the business Rovers have done so far as they prepare for tomorrow’s home game with Northampton Town (3pm).

“I don’t think through necessity it needs to be busy,” Mowbray said of his transfer plans. “I’m reasonably happy with the group we have got.

“We have potentially four players on the way back and I already have some selection issues to deal with when I’m picking teams, squads and substitutes.

“There’s maybe one or two additions that could still happen but really to bolster the group it will be for the future rather than for me to improve what’s on the grass at the moment.

“It would be for players who we feel have the potential to play in this league and the next league up.

“That’s what we have to try and do, build the club with the hope and ambition that we can get out of this league this year or if we don’t we have to have a squad that’s ready to stamp its mark on this division.

“Fingers crossed, with 19 games to go, we can continue in a similar vein as to what we have in the last 16 and make life difficult for everyone else.”

Mowbray remained tight lipped on any interest in Oxford United midfielder Joe Rothwell, with the 23-year-old currently sidelined by a hamstring injury.

The boss added: “We have had no offers accepted for players.

“Every club who you talk to is slightly different, some clubs are very active in getting back to you straight away, others you find it difficult to communicate with.

“Among all of that I’m trying to prepare the team for the next game so some days I sit here and haven’t got an answer because the information has not been passed down the line to me of where we are.

“In this era I’m not the one writing out emails and sending them off to clubs, it happens at a different level above me in the administration of the football club.

“At this moment there’s nothing else to add, I’m just trying to add some players that I feel will help us moving forward, be it the next weekend or next year.

“The more good players we can have the more chance we’ve got of winning games.”
