Another game we deserved more from

28 August 2015

Not for the first time this season boss Gary Bowyer was left to bemoan missed opportunities as Rovers were held to a goalless draw by near-neighbours Bolton Wanderers.

Rovers dominated the keenly contested match at Ewood Park for extended periods but couldn't breach a resolute Trotters defence.

The manager couldn't fault the player's commitment and desire and knows that if they continue to play in the same manner then the goals and points will follow.

"We created several great opportunities, the first half especially, we just needed a little bit more care in that final third," Bowyer told Radio Rovers.

"But you have to take your hat off to Bolton in terms of the bodies that they threw in front of chances.

"All the time we were looking to go forward to try and win the game. Tommy has a header cleared off the line and it drops to Fode but he just couldn't sort his feet quick enough to put it in the back of the net.

"You saw the effort and commitment from the players, a tremendous honesty from them. We've got to just keep working away and it will drop for us and then we'll be up and running.

"I also thought the fans were terrific tonight with their encouragement, they never stopped.

"If the effort or the commitment wasn't there it would be plain to see, but you can't argue against that.

"The chances are still coming and that is the most important thing, now we have to convert them."

Rovers return to action after the international break with a trip to take on Fulham at Craven Cottage on Sunday 13th September, kick-off 12.00pm.

Tickets for the match are currently on open sale priced at £25 for Adults, £20 for Seniors aged 65 & over, £20 for 17 - 21’s and £15 for Juniors aged 16 and under.
