Pre-Season Preview: Blackburn Rovers

27 July 2015

Bury face Blackburn Rovers tomorrow night, kick-off 7.45pm.

The Shakers will make their first appearance of the season at Gigg Lane tomorrow evening to take on Sky Bet Championship side Blackburn Rovers.

Fans will be expecting another chance to see David Flitcroft’s six new signings, including highly-rated keeper Christian Walton who has impressed during the games against Macclesfield Town and Morecambe.

It may also be a chance for the newly created strike partnership of Tom Pope and Leon Clarke, to gel in front of a home crowd.

The Gaffer has had a number of players missing during the previous two games, but Flitcroft will be hoping a number of those players will be back in contention.

That being said striker Ryan Lowe is expected to still be out with an ankle injury. 

Blackburn Rovers have a number of well-known names in their squad, who will put up a tough opposition for the Shakers.

However, with the Shakers currently unbeaten in pre-season, they will be looking to keep that going into the Sky Bet League One season with wins against Rovers and Preston North End (on Saturday).

Rovers themselves have only lost one game so far this pre-season, a 2-1 defeat away at Rochdale.

Prices are as follow: -

Adults:  £10.00 

Concessions: £5.00 (Under 23, Over 65, Disabled, Unemployed & Students)


For both the above games, home supporters will be accommodated in the Main Stand and the Les Hart Stand.  Away supporters will be using the Decipher Construction Stand.
