Speaking to the Lancashire Telegraph, Blackburn Rovers’ loaned in defender Tosin Adarabioyo has praised manager Tony Mowbray for helping him flourish at Ewood Park.
After a difficult start to life out on loan with Blackburn Rovers, Manchester City man Tosin Adarbioyo has featured heavily for the club in recent weeks, starting nine league matches in a row after contending with injury problems.
His partnership with Darragh Lenihan has seen Rovers hit a rich vein of form. Tony Mowbray’s side have won five of their last six matches and speaking to the Lancashire Telegraph, Adarabioyo has moved to thank and praise Mowbray for how he has helped him in his time with the club so far. He said:
“I feel like this is a great platform for me to show what we do. From the get-go, I knew he had belief in me and I think I’ve shown that. There’s been a few things I can improve on and a few things that he did as a centre half. He’s shown me certain things that can help me.”
Adarabioyo spent last season out on in the Championship as well, linking up with West Brom as they went on a hunt for an instant return to the Premier League. In his time at The Hawthorns, the Manchester City man played 36 times, with the majority coming out on the right-hand side of the defence.
“I’d say so,” Adarabioyo said when asked if playing in his preferred role at the heart of the defence is helping him flourish.
“I’m playing in my preferred position as opposed to last season when I was at right-back. I feel I’m playing well. I feel like I had a good game (on Saturday), but getting a clean sheet really topped it off.”
Adarabioyo and Blackburn Rovers will be hoping they can continue their strong run of form with a win tonight. The club travel to the Liberty Stadium to face an out of form Swansea City side, who will be hungry to bounce back after they were thrashed by West Brom at the weekend.
