HENNING Berg believes Blackburn Rovers' first half wastefulness cost them dear as they crashed to a 2-0 defeat at Blackpool this afternoon.

Rovers spurned a host of opportunities before the break as a West Thomas goal against the run of play was enough to give the hosts a lead at the break.

Blackpool went on to dominate the second 45 minutes as a Kirk Broadfoot header secured an ultimately comfortable victory, leaving Rovers with four defeats in their past five games.

Berg said: "We were desperate to win and play well and I think we showed that in the opening half.

"I don't know how much the players heard of what was being shouted at them by the fans but I don't think too much about my own position.

"All our players tried their best but when you are lacking in confidence you become indecisive.

"I am focussed on doing the best I can to improve the team but if our early chances had gone in it could have been a different game."
