Blackburn Rovers have endured a miserable start to their 2016/17 Sky Bet Championship campaign, winning just three times to leave boss Owen Coyle clinging to his job.
Rovers have tasted the sweetness of victory just three times during the campaign and only bottom club Rotherham United have been defeated more times than the Lancashire-based outfit thus far.
On current form it looks like being a long battle against relegation over the next six months and a drop into League One would be catastrophic for a side already riddled with debt, after a long period of shoddy ownership.
On paper, the squad which Coyle has at his dispense looks far too good to be languishing in 23rd place in the second tier, although the summer departures of Grant Hanley and Shane Duffy have clearly been detrimental to the club’s form.
With the January transfer window on the horizon, we takes a look at two players who need to leave the club in order to fulfil their potential.
