Blackburn Rovers manager Tony Mowbray believes that he has brought new life and energy to the club with his signings on Transfer Deadline Day according to the Lancashire Telegraph.

After losing their first two matches of the season in Sky Bet League One, Rovers have bounced back with back-to-back victories over Bradford City and MK Dons and the club now look to be on course to challenge for promotion back to the second tier.

With the Lancashire club looking to maintain their good performances, the club were very efficient in the transfer market this week with manager Mowbray bringing a trio of talented young players to Ewood Park.

Rovers signed 25-year-old defender Paul Downing on a loan deal from Sky Bet League One rivals MK Dons while midfielder Rekeem Harper also joined the club on a similar deal from West Bromwich Albion. Manager Mowbray’s third signing was the impressive addition of Liverpool wideman Sam Hart, a player who is known for his tough tackling and pace down the flanks.

Mowbray has declared himself to be delighted with the club’s transfer dealings and he believes that Rovers now possess some real energy from their young players.

“I felt as though we needed to add some fresh, youthful, energetic footballers” the Rovers boss admitted when speaking to the Lancashire Telegraph.

“I think we now have a balance between experienced players and some young athletic players and hopefully that chemistry is enough that we can achieve our aims this year.”

Blackburn Rovers will be looking to complete a trio of league wins when they travel to local rivals Rochdale next Saturday.
