Rovers can still make top six – Kilgallon

Lancashire Telegraph: Matt Kilgallon wins the aerial battle against Leicester Matt Kilgallon wins the aerial battle against Leicester

BLACKBURN Rovers may find themselves nine points behind the top six going into tonight’s trip to Watford, but centre-back Matt Kilgallon insists their play-off dreams are not dead yet.

Gary Bowyer’s side slipped further behind sixth-placed Reading on Saturday despite battling back to earn a 1-1 draw at home to leaders Leicester City.

But Kilgallon reckons the performance Rovers produced against the Foxes should give them belief going into the final 10 games of the campaign that they could yet make the play-offs.

“You know what this league is like, you win three games, you get nine points and you’re right back in there,” said Kilgallon, whose headed equaliser on Saturday was the first goal he has scored for Rovers since he made the move from Sunderland in the summer.

“That’s how mad it is. We’ve got 10 games left to play and I think it’s definitely possible.”

Since going down to a woeful home loss to Bournemouth two weeks ago Rovers have responded with a 4-2 victory at Huddersfield and a superb second-half against Leicester.

Kilgallon added: “We’ve been working on some stuff in training because against Bournemouth it wasn’t good enough and we ran out of ideas. But we’ve worked on stuff, the lads have taken it on board and you could tell that on Saturday by the way we played.

“Now we don’t want to let ourselves down on Tuesday because I think we’ve got a little carrot there.”

But even if Rovers fail to make the top six, Kilgallon believes they have the nucleus of a team that can push for promotion next season.

The 30-year-old said: “We’re still going for this season’s play-offs as we’ve got 10 games to play and a lot of points left to pick up.

“But if it doesn’t happen this season we’ll be a better team next season because we’ll have had a year of playing together, everyone will be older, wiser and more experienced, and we’ll give it a good go.

“There is a great atmosphere around the training ground and a belief in what the gaffer is doing.

“We’ve got some good young players – when you’re 30 like me and you’re running after 22-year-olds you wonder how long you have got left – and they are only going to get better as they get stronger and more mature.”

And here we have it, the bi-weekly promotion push nonsense story... right on time.

The same old re-hashed no-dad codsh!t week in, week out. The only thing that the "reporter" does is change is the player name, usually following the word's "Rovers star....".

"You know what this league is like, you win three games, you get nine points and you’re right back in there" Haven't we heard this line before?

So when did you last win 3 games?

Have you been in the top six at all this season?

Stop piling on the misery, the average no-dad is in a bad enough place emotionally already, why continually build up his hopes only to crush him again and again.

Watford 3 - 0 Blackburn Rovers.

It was a cracking second half on Saturday. If Rovers have been playing like that consistently all season, we would have long been in the top six by now.

Let us, Rovers fans, hope that GB will achieve like what Nigel Pearson has at Leicester City as the latter manager has taken time to build up his team.

Come on Rovers!

That's the luxury of being 10 points clear of second place. We can afford to lose a game or two on the run in. Personally After the heroics of Blackburn Rovers on Saturday, I believe Leicester are starting to wobble and we can take advantage of that and sneak past them to the title. Not so long ago we were 13 points behind Leicester, should we win tonight and then beat them at Turf Moor on Saturday we'll be just two points behind them...
