No time to feel sorry for ourselves

9 February 2015

Gary Bowyer insists the confidence in the camp remains high despite Saturday's last-gasp loss at Watford.

Rovers dominated the match at Vicarage Road for long spells, but were left to rue missed chances as the Hornets scored the only goal of the game seven minutes from time.

The Rovers boss believes the team can take plenty from the way they performed against Watford into this week's matches against Rotherham United and Stoke City.

"The players are gutted, they gave everything, they worked their socks off, they were unbelievable," said Bowyer.

"Going forward they were terrific, the game plan was terrific, we got balls into the box, Browny bullied their centre halves, and Rudy did the same when he came on.

"We had that quality going forward but it was just that little bit more in the final third.

"It is simple we've got to pick them up, we aren't coming out of here feeling sorry for ourselves, we can't afford to do that.

"We've a game on Tuesday now before a cup game against Stoke on Saturday so we don't have time to feel sorry for ourselves."
