Blackburn Rovers have been in the lower embers of English football for close to s decade but captain Charlie Mulgrew believes that the club can make a push back to the EPL next season. Speaking to the club’s website the Scotland international admitted that the club is keen in making a push for the top six places this season.

Mulgrew mentioned that the renewed experience gained last season in the Championship means that the club can’t be ruled out in the discussions for promotion. Manager Tony Mowbray had added more experience to the team with the signings of Stewart Downing and Bradley Johnson to beef the squad.

This is on addition with highly rated young players Adam Armstrong and Lewis Travis who are expected to have a better season with added experience.

Mowbray has also promised earlier in the month that the club are planning to bring more new faces to Ewood Park this summer.

The Championship is regarded as one of the most competitive and rigorous division in the Eaglish football league. The bookies currently place Blackburn with an outsiders chance of making the top six and Mulgrew admits that the club would have to surpass expectations this season.

The addition of forward Bradley Gallagher is expected to improve the attack which was a major problem for the club last season. Manager Tony Mowbrayis experienced and has led other clubs to the EPL in the past.

Blackburn fans would he hopeful of a repeat with their club next season. Chris Mulgrew would definitely be a huge part of this push as the veteran defender wants a taste of the top flight before retirement.

This is possible as the Championship has an open field of teams that can feasibly make it back to the EPL. No one fancied Sheffield United last season and they defied all expectations to make a return to the EPL.
