Rovers owners ‘worried’ by drop

Rovers’ last win in the league came on January 23, when they were

seventh in the table and nine points above the drop zone. Since

then they have take just two points from six matches and although

they sit 13th, they are only a point above the bottom three. They

still have to face the likes of Arsenal – on Saturday – Manchester

United and Manchester City in their remaining eight matches but

co-owner Venkatesh Rao of Venky’s remains optimistic. “Of course we

are worried but we have to play well and get together as a team,

and we have to get out of the situation,” he told the Lancashire

Telegraph. “You have to win sometimes and you have to lose

sometimes, but we have to come out of this situation, that’s very

sure. “But we are always positive and we will be positive. “We are

absolutely committed to the club and that won’t be changing any

day.” The owners’ search for a new chairman to replace John

Williams, who left the club in February, continues despite

speculation over a number of candidates. “We are looking at it but

there is nothing thus far, this is also speculation,” added Rao.
