GB: A good win

1 February 2014

Gary Bowyer felt that Rovers' persistence and patience paid off as they recorded a comfortable 2-0 home victory over Blackpool.

Goals in each half from David Dunn and Grant Hanley saw Rovers return to winning ways at the expense of Barry Ferguson's Seasiders.

"It was a very good win," Bowyer told Radio Rovers. "It is a tough week isn't it when you've got three games in a week.

"I thought we started the game well, went about passing the way we passed it on Tuesday night and then there's the outstanding individual brilliance from Dunny to give us the first goal.

"It set us off and if anything again we were complaining at half-time that we should have been out of sight. I thought in the first half we were trying to score the perfect goal too many times.

"That is something for us to work on and build on but fortunately for us we stuck at it in the second half and the introduction of the two wingers made a difference.

"We showed our resilience again, I can't remember too many chances for Blackpool aside from the shot in the first half from Davies which Robbo saved."

With the score at 1-0 there was always that nervousness that Blackpool could have grabbed an unlikely equaliser, but those were settled when Grant Hanley powered home his first of the campaign seven minutes from time.

"It was about time, I think he had three or four goes today," added Bowyer. "Craig Conway's delivery was spot on, he is going to be useful for us that is for sure.

"We are unbeaten through the week and if we can keep doing that through the next couple of months we'll be okay."
