Take the frustration out on Town

4 April 2014

Gary Bowyer has called on the players to take the frustration of Tuesday's draw with Brighton out on Ipswich Town this Saturday.

After grabbing late equalisers in the draws with Watford and Millwall, Rovers were then the victims of a late goal themselves as Brighton hit back late in midweek.

It was a frustrating result, their fourth draw in succession, but Rovers have a chance to put that right when they return to Ewood Park this Saturday for the second of three home games in a week against Mick McCarthy's Town.

"There was a lot of frustration around the place but we've got to channel that frustration now straight towards Ipswich and go again," said Bowyer.

"The Brighton assistant manager was quoted as saying that that was the least game they've controlled in terms of possession. So for us that is a positive as we've stopped one of the best footballing teams in the division playing.

"Then on top of that I thought that some of our play throughout the ninety minutes was excellent."

Gary Bowyer feels that the performances are improving but it is time to turn those draws into wins.

"We've said it a few times now, we aren't far off," added the manager. "We ran the league leaders very close, we had the away performance against a Watford side who were in the play-off final last year. Brighton are challenging up there as well.

"So the manner of the performance is almost very pleasing. So we've got to keep that going and channel that frustration straight at Ipswich."

Tickets for Saturday's game are currently on open sale priced from £15 Adults, £10 Seniors and £5 Juniors. Book online today at
