Corry Evans wants Blackburn to be sitting top of the Championship on Friday night and hopes that is a position they never deviate far from throughout the season.

Rovers entertain Cardiff, who were one of the three sides relegated from the Premier League last year, at Ewood Park to kick off the new domestic campaign.

We're wanting to get promotion, be it automatic or through the play-offs; that's our goal.

It's really everyone's goal in this division because anyone can beat anyone. But I think the experience we had as a team last year gelled us well. We know our style and we know the way we want to play. Hopefully we can put that into good practice this year.
