If you’ve not got a solid foundation to build on the structure isn’t going to be strong. But the arrival of Tony Mowbray has given Blackburn this according to Danny Guthrie.

He told the Official Website.

‘He has made us more solid and given us a foundation to play from. We set up depending on who we are playing. Against Fulham away is different to setting up against someone else away, so it is always interesting in the week leading up to the game because the gaffer has always got a different idea as to how the game is going to go.’

Blackburn remain unbeaten under Mowbray but went into the international break in the bottom three after a string of draws so still have plenty of work to do in order to remain in the Championship.

Guthrie is already looking to next season though when he expects Rovers to ‘push on.’ Well, as long as we stay up.

‘Next season I’m sure the gaffer will be keen to push on providing we can stay up this year which we are more than doing. So the future does look bright, the gaffer has come in and made a hell of a difference to the team. The most important thing is staying up and consolidating and then who knows next season.’

The midfielder will hope to be part of the Blackburn side that travels to promotion chasing Brighton on Saturday as Rovers look to make up for some of the dropped points from games we could, if not should have gained under Mowbray, which frustrated Guthrie.

He finished by saying it was disappointing Blackburn didn’t have a game at the weekend as we had been working hard last week in training on a lot of new things.

‘This past week we have been working on some new stuff with the gaffer which has been interesting. So it is a pity that we don’t have a game at the weekend. We’ve been unbeaten but we are probably disappointed that we haven’t picked up more wins.’
