Rovers are unbeaten in the four games the new manager has taken charge of, and remain out of the relegation zone.
Blackburn Rovers manager Tony Mowbray
The Championship strugglers have now extended their unbeaten run to four matches and fully deserved their point against Cardiff, with Neil Warnock's Bluebirds under the cosh for large portions of the match.
Quite simply, if Owen Coyle was still in charge of Blackburn, it's very likely that the club would have lost this match - and indeed, probably the others Mowbray's taken charge of - and would be preparing for League One.
While there's still 11 games to go for Blackburn, Mowbray has made an outstanding start at Ewood Park as he tries his best to keep Rovers in a division he knows so well from his time at West Bromwich Albion and Middlesbrough.

While there is a lot of off-field turmoil at the club, the owners have made a very shrewd appointment in Mowbray that should keep them in the division, and maybe even see them grow in stature for next season.
For now, it's very much one game at a time for Rovers, but under Mowbray, Blackburn have stopped being the pushovers they were just a few weeks ago, and fans will be hoping that continues.
