Blackburn Rovers boss Gary Bowyer has told the Lancashire Telegraph how confidence won’t be an issue for his side in this weekend’s game with Huddersfield Town. The Ewood Park outfit have lost their first two games of the season, including a home defeat to League One Shrewsbury Town in the Capital One Cup.

Bowyer elected to make several changes in Tuesday night’s 2-1 loss but is likely to revert to largely a similar side as the one which took to the field on Saturday against Wolverhampton Wanderers. With that being the case, the manager is keen to move on and build upon the positives that they have shown in the defeats,

“There was a lot of promise from Saturday’s game and we’ll be going into this game full of confidence on the back of that. We’ve worked well this week on areas we can still improve on and it’s now a case of taking it through until the next game.”

Blackburn head into the game with a fully fit squad with the exception of the injured Chris Taylor, but Bowyer is hoping to recall on last season’s exploits to help them bounce back from a cup defeat,

“There was disappointment at being knocked out and people have not been slow to jump on the bandwagon, so to speak, this week, but we’ve been through this situation before and we bounced back last season by going and winning at Blackpool and that’s the aim for this weekend.”

Believe Blackburn Rovers will return to winning ways this weekend? They can be backed at 7/4, whilst hosts Huddersfield Town are available at 7/5, with the draw at 9/4. For those markets and many more, click here to get involved.
