BLACKBURN Rovers’ outside hopes of a top-six place remain alive after Rudy Gestede scored a dramatic injury-time equaliser to earn a deserved 3-3 draw at fellow play-off outsiders Watford last night.

The last-gasp strike ensured Rovers moved eight points off sixth-placed Reading going into Saturday’s trip to Millwall.

MORE TOP STORIES:

And Rovers boss Gary Bowyer felt his side deserved to get a result – hailing the performance of striker Gestede.

He said: “Rudy Gestede was unplayable and rightly got the deserved equaliser.

“A point was the least that we deserved. I thought that we were excellent.

“Until the referee gave their penalty we were comfortable. That gave them a lift but we responded ever so well.”

That's an insult to Muppet's.

Really isn't worth the effort Gaz, idiots like him are an insult to the real Burnley fans who deserve to celebrate what their team are achieving this season but get drowned out by this white noise.

In my opinion I think GB has done fantastic job stabilising the club after an embarrassing few years but he is so far off the mark tactically. He doesn't react to the other teams substitutions and I am still trying to come to terms with him leaving Rudy on the bench against them smelly dingles

as you have waited 40 years to be able to say that I suppose you can have your six months .......

Mind you in the summer when your manager moves on and your main players move on to bigger clubs... a bit like Charlie Austin going to QPR..
you know what I mean.

So my advice is to stop being vitriolic and spending your glory months showing you still really green with envy for the Rovers...
just get on with your own club and try and enjoy your short lived moment in the clouds..... cause you aint got long my friend....... and you wont be winning no Premiership Title ......... but hey not many fans can experience that eh!

I love how fans like to point out that we're not going to get in the play offs as if they want some kind of reward for being the most astute fan in the world!
I'm sure its the same fans that love to point out that they dont rate all the 'nuts & bolts' players that are integral to the team, such as Lowe, Williamson.
Life cant all be about negative posts, gents, cheer up a bit and try to say something positive for a change...you'll find that being positive is a lot more challenging, because you'd actually need to think before posting!

Yet again all you can harp on about is how Burnley will lose this player then that player then the manager etc.etc.
We have had a fantastic season better than anyone could have imagined we will enjoy our time in the Premier League if and when we get there.
At least Burnley Football Club and all the supporters know that nobody has a right to be in the top league unlike other teams who think there have an automatic right to be there.

Don't cry Ashton.1988 you can make another push for the play offs this Saturday!!
Burnley Football Club is by far a better run club
28 Points Clear
5 Years and counting
as you have waited 40 years to be able to say that I suppose you can have your six months .......

Mind you in the summer when your manager moves on and your main players move on to bigger clubs... a bit like Charlie Austin going to QPR..
you know what I mean.

So my advice is to stop being vitriolic and spending your glory months showing you still really green with envy for the Rovers...
just get on with your own club and try and enjoy your short lived moment in the clouds..... cause you aint got long my friend....... and you wont be winning no Premiership Title ......... but hey not many fans can experience that eh!
Yet again all you can harp on about is how Burnley will lose this player then that player then the manager etc.etc.
We have had a fantastic season better than anyone could have imagined we will enjoy our time in the Premier League if and when we get there.
At least Burnley Football Club and all the supporters know that nobody has a right to be in the top league unlike other teams who think there have an automatic right to be there.

UTC.
tell that to manchester united
Manchester city
Liverpool
arsenal
tottenham hotspur
they are all in the premier league because of money
and becase they can buy the best players
burnley may well get promoted
but they will not be able to live with most if not all of the teams in that league and will be a relegation dogfight from day one
And, in all honesty do you think Rovers would be able to compete?
NO

Looking at the remaining matches we are playing home matches against teams above us and away matches against teams below rovers. This should work in our favour, but who knows which rovers will turn up!

I'm sure its the same fans that love to point out that they dont rate all the 'nuts & bolts' players that are integral to the team, such as Lowe, Williamson.
Life cant all be about negative posts, gents, cheer up a bit and try to say something positive for a change...you'll find that being positive is a lot more challenging, because you'd actually need to think before posting!
Very realistic realisticrover. Nice post.

I will never understand Rovers fans answering Burnley posts, I just scroll past them without reading them, they have nothing to do with us and we have even less to do with them.
Agreed. Fellow rovers fans- please stop replying to burnley fan comments unless they have something worthwhile and structured to say. If you ignore something for long enough it will go away, so why pander to their antagonistic needs.

Agree, what's been said in both your posts, and keeping on the subject of football/rovers (as opposed to fingers,sisters,inbr
ed,dads etc etc) I would like GB to take a look at the recent match between Burnley/Leicester, a draw for Leicester would have been a very good result, but if you're going to win this league, as a manager you go into these games with only one thing on your mind and that's to win take note GB no playing one up front going defensive when you go one up by taking a forward off and putting a defender/midfielder on take a leaf out of Mr Pearsons book GB it's the only way.
