Jayson Leutwiler relishing Rovers chance

Jayson Leutwiler is delighted to have made the move to Blackburn and is targeting promotion this season with Rovers.

The 28-year-old keeper left Shrewsbury for Ewood Park earlier this week after a three-year stint at the New Meadow.

The Swiss-born Canada international has tasted promotion in the past with the Shrews and he now hopes to help Rovers secure an immediate return to the Championship.

“There are many challenges,” he told the club’s official website.

“Obviously the challenge to play for the club and be part of this team. And to try to help the club get back to where it belongs is another one.

“Every one of us is going to try to do everything for that and everything is here to achieve that challenge.

“We need a good season, of course, but if everyone is at it, we will do it and get back to where we belong.”

Leutwiler feels League One will be highly competitive in the coming campaign and says Rovers must put results over performances if they are to enjoy a successful season.

He added: “It’s a strange league, because everyone can win against everyone and it’s tough, playing a lot of games.

It’s very similar to the Championship. It’s all about winning. Sometimes the manner doesn’t count, it’s more about the points.”

Blackburn are 5.00 to win League One outright and 2.63 to take all three points in their season opener at Southend on Saturday.
