Tony Mowbray detailed the club's infrastructure improvements during a visit to meet the club's owners during the international break.

Mowbray travelled to Pune with Mark Venus, whose role has now been expanded to head of football operations, and head of recruitment Stuart Harvey where they met with Balaji Rao before separate meetings with Madame Desai and Jitendra Desai.

Rovers have invested heavily in their recruitment department and in the senior training centre at Brockhall with Mowbray keen to outline the work the owners' financing has allowed them to do.

It is Mowbray's fourth trip to Pune to meet the owners having done so in the summer, while he also travelled to Switzerland earlier this year to meet owner Balaji Rao to discuss the next phase of his plans for the club.

It was a first meeting with the owners for Venus, Mowbray's long-term assistant, who plays an important role in the boss' bid to improve both on and off the field.

“It’s been planned for a couple of months,” Mowbray told the Lancashire Telegraph of his most recent trip.

“It’s the first time Mark has been over with me as head of football operations, I felt it was important for him to meet the owners in my opinion on where we're going to try and take the club with the off-field stuff which he is involved in.

“I took the head of recruitment, Stuart Harvey, so he can help the owners understand where we’re spending the money on the systems we have put in place, how we filter recruitment down.

“We showed them some videos of how we work in the STC, how life is on a daily basis here, and I think it was important they could see how we’re trying to improve the infrastructure of the club moving forward.

“Results can sometimes be the face of the club, and while they might not have been as good as we would have wanted, that doesn’t mean there’s not a lot of good work going on behind the scenes, a platform to build the club and make it stronger.

“I think that was important to show them that.”

Mowbray is wanting to raise expectation levels at the club as he looks to improve on last season's haul of 60 points.

Rovers' momentum has been stalled by taking just one point from their last three matches, including a 4-2 defeat at QPR last time out.

They return to action against Huddersfield Town on Saturday lunchtime in front of the Sky Sports cameras, with the Terriers visit the first of three games within the space of seven days.

And hoping that can be the springboard to kickstart their season, Mowbray added: “The last five games, we want to win every game, but we have won two, lost two and drawn one.

“That’s not where we want to be. We would have wanted four wins and a draw, but I don’t think the team is too far away from those statistics and winning consistently.

“We have found a way to win away from home already this season, if anything we’ve let ourselves down against teams that we should be beating at home, Luton and Charlton, and if you add six points then we’d be in the play-off spots.

“But that’s a ‘what if?’ and I’m not interested in them. We have to beat Huddersfield, Birmingham, teams I think we should be beating we have to go there and that’s what we have to try and do.”
