Bowyer wants fans’ support

Blackburn caretaker boss Gary Bowyer has called on the club’s

fans to get behind the team when they face Blackpool on Friday.

Bowyer, who begins his second spell in temporary charge this

season after the departure of Michael Appleton, insists the

supporters have a huge part to play between now and the end of the


“The main thing for the supporters is to back the team the way

they did against Burnley,” he told the club’s official website.

“They backed the side right until the death and with Dunny

scoring in injury-time was great for us and gave us the boost to go

into this game.

“With the experience from sampling that atmosphere we want to

appeal to the fans to come and cheer the football club and the

players on once again.

“Because when the fans are like that the players respond and

vice-versa. It is much needed.”

He also admitted three points against Paul Ince’s side are vital

if they are to distance themselves from the bottom three.

He added: “We’ve got to try and win the game and get the team

climbing up the league. You’ve always to be realistic and we have

to try and get some wins as quickly as possible.

“Hopefully we can the start climbing the table. It has been a

tough season and we want to finish it on a high now.”
