Tony Mowbray says that he is hoping for a much better intensity from Blackburn going forward. Blackburn are preparing for the third pre-season friendly and this will be only the first time that they play at Ewood Park at the start of this campaign. After having getting promoted back to the Championship, Blackburn are hoping for a much better improvement in terms of fortunes. The team has been involved in draws against Port Vale and a win over Hibernian so far in the friendlies. There are still a couple of friendlies against the likes of Liverpool and Everton to look forward to for Mowbray and his team.
“Fitness is getting there and we’re trying to bring the distances down now and add a little bit more intensity. We have a few niggles but nothing serious so we’re doing okay.I’d have to say pre-season games – whilst I want the team to play well and get fit – nobody remembers the pre-season scores when we’re a couple of months into the season. Premier League clubs have players on breaks due to their involvement in the World Cup which means they are taking their young players to these tours that they have gone on,” said Tony Mowbray.
