Boss delighted with Rovers win

21 October 2014

Gary Bowyer was pleased with his side's second half display as they claimed all three points with a 1-0 win over ten-man Birmingham City.

After a lacklustre first half, the game sprang into life in the second period with Saturday's hero Ben Marshall grabbing the only goal of the game - his fifth of the season.

Rovers should have scored more to show their dominance as several chances were spurned, but the manager was delighted to take the victory.

"In the first half we weren't at it," Bowyer told Radio Rovers. "It was all too much in front and all too nice.

"So we had a few choice words with them at half-time and I thought they responded magnificently well - Ben Marshall in particular.

"In the first half we felt he was coming too deep. The second half we told him to stay wide and get at people and do what he does best. He was outstanding tonight. It was a fantastic run and shot from him.

"There were also some great individual performances, Shane Duffy, Lee Williamson and Corry Evans again, the energy that those two showed after Saturday, Adam also did well coming into the team again.

"The disappointing thing from our point of view is we felt we should have scored more goals in the second half.

"We were a touch naive in the last minute when they hit the bar.  But if it had been 4-0 at that time then it would have been correct.

"The most important thing was to win tonight and we've done that. We kept going and saw it out at the end."

Rovers are back in action this weekend when they travel to take on Nottingham Forest.
