Rovers begin interview process
Blackburn are set to begin interviewing candidates for the vacant manager's job after making "sound progress" in their search.
Rovers parted company with Steve Kean last month but, despite a host of high profile names being linked with the vacancy, caretaker boss Eric Black is poised to take charge of his fifth Championship game against Yorkshire rivals Sheffield Wednesday on Wednesday evening.
A statement posted on the club's official website read: "Blackburn Rovers can report 'sound progress' in the search to find a new manager.
"Ewood Park officials have confirmed that the interviewing process of prospective candidates will take place over the coming days."
Supporter unease increased at Blackburn this week amid reports of rejected approaches for former midfielders Tim Sherwood and Billy McKinlay - both highly-rated coaches at Tottenham and Fulham respectively, but managerial novices - and a video of global advisor Shebby Singh explaining the process and pleading for patience was posted on the club website.
