Blackburn Rovers boss Tony Mowbray has said that he is confident that the goals will start to flow after their difficult start to the season in the scoring department, having scored five goals in six Championship games so far this season.

As it stands, Blackburn Rovers have only four goalscorers in six games so far in the Championship, having scored five goals so far. Bradley Dack, Danny Graham, Derrick Williams and Bradley Johnson have all bagged one Championship goal so far, with an own goal taking them to five.

However, manager Tony Mowbray is confident that the goals will start to flow soon, heaping praise on summer signing Sam Gallagher – who opened his account for the season in the EFL Cup against Sheffield United – will “undoubtedly” score goals as he continues to find his feet.

Speaking to the Lancashire Telegraph, Mowbray said:

“Sam Gallagher is finding his feet, he undoubtedly will score goals. He’s 6’4, he’s fast, he has a bazooka in his right foot, his shooting in training is unbelievably good.

The goals will come, the goals will flow. We have to find the right balance, who’s supplying the people who can put the ball in the net? You have to get that balance right, but the good thing is we feel we have options.

“Is it disappointing? Well, we would have hoped to have won every game 3-0 but that’s not the case because the league is so attritional and difficult early in the season. As it loosens off, hopefully, the quality will come to the top and we have to be part of that.”
