Mowbray confident Bell can improve
Blackburn boss Tony Mowbray says Amari'i Bell must work on his consistency if he wants to keep his place in the side.
The 24-year-old made his 50th appearance for the club on Tuesday during the impressive win over Derby County.
Bell has featured in more games than any other Rovers defender this season but continues to be pushed by Mowbray.
He has now started 30 games this season but Mowbray believes there is more to come from Bell as he keeps Derrick Williams out of the team.
Mowbray told the Lancashire Telegraph: "Amari'i is a young boy, his first season in the Championship. I think he has to keep growing.
"At his very best he looks a really top player when he's in full flow, driving past people.
"I think there's a level of inconsistency about how he deals with different situations defensively, but he has the tools defensively, he has fast feet, can stop crosses and has a good spring.
"He's got all the attributes, he just needs to bring them all together. The inconsistency of Amari'i is something that he needs to keep working on, he knows that.
"While he has played a lot of games, he has been left out at times because of inconsistency.
"Moving forward that's what I see with Amari'i. If we can develop his character and personality, and get him believing he's a talented footballer who can help us progress towards the Premier League, then great."
