GOALSCORING hero Rudy Gestede says there is no chance Blackburn Rovers will throw the towel in on their season.

After four successive draws Rovers returned to winning ways on Saturday with a 2-0 home victory over Ipswich Town inspired by their recalled Benin international striker.

However Gary Bowyer’s side remain seven points behind the play-offs after sixth-placed Reading won 1-0 at Charlton Athletic.

With just six games to play, starting at home to QPR tomorrow, only the most optimistic of Rovers fans hold out hope of catching and overhauling the Royals.

But Gestede insists the players still believe it is possible.

“We have to fight until the end and we are going to fight until the end,” said Gestede, who won the Championship with Cardiff City last season before joining Rovers in a £300,000 deal in January.

“When I signed I said I believe in this team – and I still believe in this team.

“We need to keep believing we can do something this season and we’ll see what happens come May 3.

“We’ll never give up and if it’s not this season – and I’m not saying it won’t be – it will be next season.”

Gestede was named man of the match on Saturday after he created Jordan Rhodes’ opener and scored the goal which sealed Rovers’ first home win since February 1.

But the 6ft 4in frontman was quick to pay tribute to the man who set up his sixth goal for the club – dead-ball specialist Craig Conway.

Conway has three goals and five assists to his name after he followed in the footsteps of Gestede and made a £100,000 January move from Cardiff.

“Every time with Craig it’s an amazing delivery,” said Gestede, who believes the 23-goal Rhodes will chase down Leeds United’s Ross McCormack and finish as the Championship’s leading marksman.

“You know it’s going to be a good ball so I just have to move, put my big head on it and see what happens.

“He is a very powerful player, he works very hard and he fits into the team very well.

“He’s an amazing player and he has showed already he can cause a lot of problems.”

Rovers welcome third-placed QPR to Ewood Park tomorrow and Gestede says they will show the same attacking intent they have displayed over their last unbeaten six matches.

He said: “It doesn’t matter who we are playing – we just need to win games.

“QPR are a good team but we will be going to beat them.”

Well said LP and I agree winning breeds confidence so it's important to keep going to the end. I can't believe Bowyer picked up Conway and Gestede for just £400,000, must be the bargains of the century.............

Play-offs are out of mind for me personally. But its not wrong to say our team performance is improving, and we are on form right now with key man Cairney back in the squad and Rhodes finding the back of the net almost every game. And that's what is making me proud to be a Rovers fan right now.

This will be a tough game but if we pull out a win, its going to give the team such a confidence boost.

COYB!

Well, it's a more interesting end to the season that I thought it would be at the start! My main aim was to avoid worrying about relegation this season. If Watford win their game in hand, all teams from 6 to 12 are in with a (half-decent) shout of making the 6th spot. Of course its Reading's to lose but it could get interesting. I just hope we are still in the mix after Tuesday and the weekend.

VENKYS IN TOWN TO MEET THE QUEEN
Blackburn Rovers owners Venky’s (Rao family pic above), are planning to make a rare trip to the town in the hope of meeting the queen.
The Indian based family are arranging a flying visit next week when her majesty is due to hand out Maundy money at Blackburn Cathedral. As owners of the town’s football club they are on the guest list.
Owner Mrs Anuradha Desai and her brothers, Ventkatesh and Balaji Rao would love to meet the royals – although there presence in the town has not exactly been welcome among Rovers fans on previous trips.
The Venky’s visit is being kept hush hush in case of a backlash. They want to make the long haul to see the Queen without any fuss.
Pity they could not take the time to visit and help the club over the past two troubled years.
Pity they cannot take the time to address the Rovers fans and explain their plans for the future.
Pity they cannot take the time to explain past mistakes and there are plenty.
Pity they cannot take the time to apologise for the sacking of Sam Allardyce in December 2010 and the disastrous appointment of advisor / agent Jerome Anderson who ran the club for a ruinous 2 years.
Pity they cannot take the time to apologise for the continued appointment of the useless Steve Kean, despite fans requests and fans demonstration’s to have him removed. Kean thanked Anuradha Desai’s loyalty by sueing her for 1.3 million for constructive dismissal. What a RAT – but she was warned.
Pity they cannot apologise for giving Kean, against all advice, the Premier League parachute payments to recruit new players in 2012. Totally wasted a part from the signing of Jordan Rhodes.
Pity they cannot explain why 12,000 paying fans have deserted the club.
No it’s a pity they have not the time to fly from India to address all of these things. Probably they just don’t care.
But meet the Queen – well that is a different matter !

STABILITY IS ESSENTIAL
Photo of g bowyer
Nobody has campaigned for Blackburn Rovers to appoint an experienced manager more than me.
Ever since the awful Steve (the man who cannot win football matches) Kean was appointed.
The club has chugged along since the 13th December 2010 (the fateful day Big Sam was sacked) without anyone of any repute in the most important position at a football club.
However I cannot help but be impressed with Gary Bower (pic above) and his coaching staff of Terry McPhilips, Craig Short and Eric Kinder.
Bowyer has built a side that can compete in the Championship, because we did not have one. We looked like slipping through the leagues. I fully expected to be playing Accrington Stanley on level terms in a couple of years, such was the mess Kean left us in. Bowyer has taken away those fears.
We have not got a team good enough to win promotion, far from it, but the seeds have been sewn.
Bowyer faces a mammoth task. He still needs to off load a lot of overpaid and over rated players accumulated by Kean and agent Jerome (the man ruined Blackburn Rovers) Anderson. None more so than Leon Best and Bradley Orr, who are on massive money that Rovers cannot afford. Reputed to be £40,000 each per week – Premier league wages.
Or in particular is a damning case and illustrates the skulduggery that went on during the disastrous Kean / Anderson reign.
The seeds were sewn for Orr’s massive contract on that fateful Monday evening when Wigan visited Ewood Park in April 2012. Wigan won 1/0 and finally sent Rovers down to the Championship with 31 points. The lowest points total ever accumulated by Blackburn Rovers.
Sky TV needed a Rovers representative to face the TV cameras in the aftermath of the match. Orr was delegated by Kean to be that man in a pre-arranged agreement anticipating the outcome of the evening.
Bradley Orr live on national TV gave Kean a glowing testimonial. Rovers demise was not “Kean’s fault stated Orr, it was all down to the players.” Orr continued “Steve Kean is the best manager / coach I have ever worked with and did not deserve the abuse and criticism from the fans”. Orr continued that Kean was the way forward and would return the Rovers back to the Premiership. The Rovers team in the dressing room could not believe what they were hearing and this interview caused a rift between Orr and rest of the team.
Mrs Anuradha (I like to be entertained) Desai and her useless brothers however fell for it ‘hook line and sinker’.
Kean kept his job, 12,500 fans deserted the club and Orr received a lucrative contract courtesy of Kean and Anderson.
You could not make it up!
This is an example of just some of the problems Bowyer has inherited. Bowyer must stay, he knows the club inside out and what has taken place over the last two years.
Steve Kean and Jerome Anderson ruined Blackburn Rovers. DO NOT FORGET THAT. Only Gary Bowyer can give us the stability needed for the future.

In December 2010 when Allardyce was sacked soon after Venky's take over average attendance at Ewood was 24,999.

And of those 25,000 attendees, how many do you think travelled from Man. U, Man City, Liverpool, Everton, Chelsea, Arsenal, Newcastle etc. Deduct an average of 5,000 visiting supporters, take away around 3,000 neutral football commiserate came to watch good value Premiership football and that leads you to around 3,000 bitter glitterballs who will only support us in the Premiership. Some will be staying away for financial reasons, some will have tired of the whole cynical system of overpaid and underperforming professionals but to claim that 12,500 supporters have turned their back on the club just because of Venkys is pure nonsense. I am not an apologist for Venky or Anderson but I have grown up and moved on. I will be there tomorrow to support my club, irrespective of who owns it.

Bang on target Angry.

I honestly don't know why you try to argue with this idiot, I never even read it's posts anymore they are so full of regurgitated garbage.

I always felt that I had to justify my stance against the "apologist" comment, I don't and neither do you or anyone else who still supports our club.

Looking forward to tonight whatever the result as long as the team put in a decent performance.
