Owen Coyle was always expecting Blackburn to be a ‘tough job’ that wouldn’t see the stability he’s looking to bring to Rovers happen overnight.

He told the Lancashire Telegraph he feels he’s starting to ‘implement’ these ideas he has into practice.

‘This was always going to be a tough job. If truth be told it was probably the toughest job going in many respects. We have to make sure every day we`re working hard, we`re focused, we`re implementing our ideas on the training ground and then bringing that to the games, and I think we`re starting to do that.’

Coyle went onto add he believes the coaching team in place, along with the squad, have all the ‘attributes at the club’ needed.

That platform he’s looking to build, which will be simply to keep Blackburn in the Championship first and foremost, isn’t made any easier by the financial restraints but he’s still looking to ‘make a real go’ of it.

‘We want to bring a stability, a platform to the club; a club which, team wise, each year has been slightly further down. We knew financially it was going to be tough as well, we knew that from the outset.

‘But the important thing for us is we bring that stability and that platform, because to my mind, if we are able to do and show that, I would hope we then get that real push to make a real go of things.’

If he gets backing from the owners at the right time, he’s basically referring to January, that will help get the club ‘back to where we all want it to be’ with him concluding.

‘If we do, I think we can get this club back to where we all want it to be. It won`t be overnight, it will take time, but if we can be seen to be showing those foundations, then it doesn`t have to be huge (money), it`s just has to be a good bit of backing at the right time. If we got that I really think we could progress this club to where we want it to be.’
