Gary Bowyer is ready to return to his role as reserve-team coach as newly appointed Blackburn manager Michael Appleton starts his reign on Monday.

Bowyer signed off from his stint as caretaker boss alongside Terry McPhillips with a 1-1 draw at Wolves on Friday night, preserving his unbeaten record and ensuring he collected 10 points from a possible 12 since taking the reins from Henning Berg.

When asked what the future holds for himself, Bowyer replied: "We (he and McPhillips) knew what we were entering when we were asked to look after it. We've got a role at the club and we know what our role is, developing players. That is the role we will go back to, both myself and Terry with the Under-18s. We'll continue to do that."
