ROVERS boss Henning Berg will be hoping Sunday’s East Lancashire derby heralds a change in fortune for his side after they suffered back to back defeats.
Berg’s men were beaten 2-1 by Bolton Wanderers at Ewood Park last night leaving the new boss still searching for his first home win in charge.
And he will hope the tasty prospect of a trip to Turf Moor will earn a victory to put his side back among the promotion contenders.
Rovers were outplayed for much of the contest against the Trotters with an early goal from Kevin Davies and a second on the hour from Chung Yong Lee putting the game beyond doubt despite Jordan Rhodes’ late intervention.
Berg was naturally disappointed and said: "To start the game like we did was very surprising.
"We gave them too much space.
"It's nowhere near where we want to be."
But there were words of comfort for Rovers from Bolton boss Dougie Freedman.
“Fair play to Blackburn who kept on going. They tested us in the last 15 minutes,” he said.
