Blackburn's new permanent manager Gary Bowyer insists stability is key for the club's future and he hopes to benefit from patience all round.

Rovers went through five different managers last season - with Bowyer twice taking temporary charge - but having been asked to step into the main job with a 12-month rolling contract the 41-year-old wants to calm things down.
Asked whether he had any reservations about accepting the offer from owners Venky's, he said: "You mean am I crazy?
"It was a no brainer for me, I had to take this opportunity.
"I have been at the club for a long time and I've seen the success over the years and I know what the foundations of that success were. I enjoyed it last season and I want to crack on now.
"As long as I keep winning matches I'll stay in the job. Nothing has changed in the demands required.
"The owners spoke with me and made their plans quite clear in terms of what's expected.
"If we can have a bit of patience that would be great but we know we're in a results business so the patience will last through the summer and come August it will be gone.
"It was well documented what went on last year and we have to learn from it.
"All I can do is do what we did last year and that was to focus on the football - I can't control what happens off the pitch."
