HENNING Berg insists his Blackburn Rovers side have to do much better after his first game at the helm ended in a 2-0 defeat at Crystal Palace.

Rovers' Norwegian boss saw his side slip to their first away defeat of the season as Glenn Murray scored in each half.

Berg said: "We did not defend well enough and we did not use the ball well enough when we were in possession.

"Crystal Palace are a good side but we are capable of much better, we know that.

"Crystal Palace deserved to win the game, no one could argue they didn't. We have to look forward now."
