Blackburn manager Mark Hughes as backed Ken Bates appointment of Dennis Wise saying his work ethic and personality is what the club needs.

‘He has a fantastic work ethic, not only as a player but as a manager,’ Hughes told Sky Sports News.

‘He came to see our reserve game the other week and that is a round trip of about 400 miles. I think that shows how determined he is to be successful as a manager.

‘He had decent success with Millwall where he took them to the FA Cup final, so the guy is a winner and I am sure he will be a success at Leeds United.’

‘They are struggling at the moment and they need a strong personality to come in and shake the place up and certainly Dennis is that,’ he added
