Blackburn Rovers’ Chris Taylor has said that today is the day that they turn their season around.
After a brief resurgence after the appointment of Paul Lambert as manager, Blackburn went back into a slump and went six games without a win.
However that bad run was ended on Monday when Blackburn beat Newport County in the FA Cup. That win meant they progressed into the next round of the cup but now they will need to translate that into the league.
They have the perfect opportunity today as well against Charlton Athletic. They have been in disastrous form and are under their new manager Jose Riga, who lost his first game back as the head coach 5-0.
And Taylor, who looks set to start the game after an impressive performance against Newport, says it is the perfect time to turn Blackburn’s season around.
Talking ahead of the Charlton match, Taylor told the Lancashire Telegraph: “It wasn’t a league game (on Monday) but it stopped the rot of losing games and it was a win.”
“It doesn’t matter the opposition, it doesn’t matter who it came against it, it was a win and it should give us some confidence for the trip to Charlton, who are struggling.”
“We want to push on at the right end of the table now.”
“We’ve fallen quite a bit behind the play-offs but we need to push on to the top half and keep away from that relegation.”
