Learn from the Boxing Day loss

28 December 2014

Gary Bowyer hopes his young squad take on board the lessons learnt from Friday's defeat at Bolton Wanderers.

Rovers should have had the game wrapped up before half-time as they spurned a whole host of chances. But the home side made them pay with two second half goals to seal the points.

Now as they prepare to take on Middlesbrough at Ewood Park this Sunday, the Rovers boss wants them to put the loss behind them and move on.

"As hard as it is, the experience will make them stronger and better," said Bowyer.

"Obviously we wouldn't have wanted them to have that, but they are going to have to take that on the chin now and come out fighting on Sunday.

"We've vented our frustration and then said lets get straight onto the Middlesbrough game.

"We'll look at the lessons that we can learn very quickly and then concentrate Middlesbrough."

Rovers are encouraging supporters to get their tickets for this afternoon's match against Middlesbrough well in advance of the 3.00pm kick-off.

Tickets for the game are currently on sale to home fans with a database history of purchasing match tickets priced from £21 for Adults, from £13 for Students and Seniors 65 and over, and from just £8 for Under-17s.

The Roverstore will be open for ticket sales from 10.30am with the club anticipating another large attendance, swelled by a sizeable visiting support. Therefore, supporters are being advised to arrive early to avoid delays.

Due to the large number of away coaches, this could cause congestion on the approach roads to Ewood Park, especially from the Darwen End, which is likely to impact on users of Car Park B.

Also with roadworks that are part of the Pennine Reach Ewood Gyratory Scheme, car parking options around the stadium are reduced. Matchday parking is available on a first-come, first-served basis from Car Park H and Car Park F priced at £10.
