One to forget

3 March 2015

Under-21s boss Eric Kinder was disappointed that his side weren't able to build on last week's Premier League Cup success after being held to a goalless draw by Brighton on Monday night.

After the dramatic extra-time victory over Reading on Thursday, Rovers failed to hit the same heights in a goalless draw against the Seagulls at Ewood Park.

Whilst admitting that his side was well below their best, he was at least pleased to have arrested a run that saw them lose their last five league encounters.

"It looked like it was after the Lord Mayor's Show," Kinder told Rovers Player. "Everything that we did well in that semi-final - desire, passion, enthusiasm to want to win a game - we lacked that completely.

"I'm disappointed and they're disappointed in there, but it halts a losing sequence in the league and we got a point out of a game that was poor and was awful to watch.

"We never got going at all and David Raya pulls us out of it with a save with about ten minutes to go.

"It is one to forget, we have to work on keeping the ball better, but we got a point out of it and that is a positive thing to take out of it.

"We were well, well short of what we are capable of. We let ourselves down in front of the people at Ewood. But we'll go again, we are away at Reading on Friday night."
