Manager Warren Joyce recovering following surgery
The club can confirm that manager Warren Joyce underwent surgery on Tuesday for a minor but important procedure which required immediate attention.
He will not be taking training today, Friday, 3 March. The plan is for him to be in attendance in some capacity at Ewood Park for the match versus Blackburn Rovers tomorrow, Saturday 4 March.
In the meantime, Graham Barrow and Andy Welsh will be in temporary charge of the team and will be communicating with Warren as much as possible.
We expect Warren to make a full recovery very soon and will continue to offer him all the support he requires.
