Tony Mowbray has reiterated that Blackburn’s overall aim for the season is to secure promotion back to the Championship at the first time of asking.

Rovers were relegated last season despite losing just three of their final 15 games following Mowbray’s appointment as manager in February, while they have made a solid enough start to the current campaign, as they presently occupy the final playoff position.

The Blue and Whites will take a break from League One action this weekend, as they play host to Barnet in the FA Cup, but Mowbray insists his main focus is always on securing the club promotion back to the Championship.

“We have this job to do which is why I keep saying our main aim, our only aim, is to bounce back at the first attempt and get back into the Championship and then compete at that level,” the former Celtic boss said.

Blackburn have only lost two of their last 13 league matches, although they have drawn three of their last four and Mowbray knows how important it is to restore a winning mentality at Ewood Park.

He added: “I want to try and bring some joy back to the club, bring back a winning mentality and get used to expecting to win games at player, manager and supporter level and try and turn it around.”

The Lancashire outfit are priced at 12.00 to claim the League One title come the end of the campaign, while they are available at 2.38 to achieve Mowbray’s goal of promotion.
