Frustration for Berg
10:09am Wednesday 7th November 2012 in Sport
HENNING Berg was a frustrated man as he was denied his first win as Blackburn Rovers boss by a late Huddersfield Town leveller last night.
Rovers had come from behind to lead 2-1 at the John Smith’s Stadium, thanks to Jordan Rhodes’ strike against his old club and a Danny Murphy penalty, to move on course for their first win since Berg’s arrival as boss last week.
But Lee Novak scored his second of the game for Huddersfield in injury time to earn the Terriers a 2-2 draw.
“We are very disappointed with the result because sometimes in football you don’t get what you deserve and we didn’t get what we deserved,” Berg said.
“It was in our hands though and we have to be able to kill a game off.
“When we have the ball with one minute to go in a good position we have to keep the ball in that good position instead of trying to score the third.
“We have young players though and they have to learn.
“They learned from Saturday and they will learn more after today.
“But I thought we played well tonight and we deserved to win the game.
“It was a big improvement.”
The draw kept Rovers sixth in the Championship table, five points behind the automatic promotion spots.
Berg was taking charge of his second game as Rovers manager, having been appointed last Wednesday.
Rovers lost 2-0 at Crystal Palace in his first match in charge on Saturday and have still only won one match on the road this season – at Bristol City.
Six of their eight away games in the Championship have ended in a draw.
