EVANS STEPS UPBLACKBURN COMEBACK

Blackburn Rovers midfielder Corry Evans has stepped up his comeback from injury and he couldfeature for the u-23s before the end of this month according to Lancashire Telegraph. Corry Evans has been out of action since he sustained a hamstring problem in November 2020. Corry Evans is a Northern Ireland international and he would be hoping for a better year in 2021 after a poor2020.


Corry Evans started seven of the last 11 games for Blackburn Rovers before he sustained the hamstring injury in the game against Queens Park Rangers (QPR) in November.Corry Evans is expected to boost the midfield options for manager Tony Mowbray at Blackburn Rovers when he returns to full fitness as the former Premier League champions try to seal a playoff spot at least at the end of the season in their bid to return to the top flight after several years out.

Blackburn Rovers skipper Elliott Bennett is ahead of Corry Evans in the quest to return to first team action having already featured for the u-23s under manager Billy Barr. Elliott Bennett has been missing for the first team since he suffered ankle ligaments damage in October 2020. The skipper has played just 12 minutes of first team football this season and his timely return could boost the club in the quest to secure a place in the playoffs.Elliott Bennett could provide competition for Ryan Nyambe at right-back when he's fully fit. Ryan Nymabe was out for some games after he had to self-isolate due to Covid-19 earlier this month andBlackburn Rovers boss Tony Mowbray had to use Barry Douglas and John Buckley at right-back during his absence. Blackburn Rovers player Joe Rankin-Costello is still far from returning from the hamstring injury that has plagued him in recent weeks as he still has at least two more weeks left.
