    Rovers Boss on Transfer Plans


    Rovers boss Tony Mowbray has been discussing his plans for the January transfer window.  Ahead of the game at Northampton on Saturday Mowbray said    “We’re pretty much down the way on January,  We’ve been working pretty hard to get a recruitment department in place for a few weeks now, it’s not about dragging a few lads off the streets.  “We’ve been through extensive procedure, it’s not something that is really going to affect this window, but moving forward hopefully the recruitment will be seen as good recruitment and there will be evidence of why we’ve signed players.  “For the owners there will be lots of reports, there will be lots of reasons, statistics, as to why we’ve signed footballers in the future.  “This window, it will be pretty much like it was in the summer I think. It will be difficult for Steve to come in and jump straight in to it.  “I’m pretty confident we’ll get things done. We felt as if we had a pretty decent window in the summer and I see no reason why we can’t do the same kind of work and add some quality to the group and keep pushing on.” 

    Mowbray also wants to ensure that the players currently at the club also continue to perform  “I think there are areas we need to strengthen and the best time to strengthen is from a position of strength.  I thought the club showed some good intent in the summer, spent some money on players, Bradley Dack and Dominic Samuel have both come in and done reasonably well, hopefully there’s more growth in them.  “It’s players of that ilk that we need to invest in, keep bringing to the club and hopefully they can grow and develop with the club. “Hopefully they can be part of the history as we move forward. That’s what we’re trying to do, strengthen from the position we’re currently in.”
