ROVERS have now lost their last four League Cup ties to lower-league opposition after they crashed out at the first-round stage for the second season running last night.

Gary Bowyer’s woefully out-of-sorts side, despite enjoying plenty of second-half pressure, were unable to force extra-time after Neal Bishop scored what ultimately proved to be the League One new boys’ 33rd-minute winner.

It meant Rovers, the 2002 winners, saw their 13-match unbeaten run in all competitions – a run stretching back to March – ended on what was a desperately disappointing night at Ewood Park.

But for the 4,801 home supporters in the sparse crowd it will come as no surprise after seeing their side go down to Carlisle United, MK Dons and Cardiff City in the past three campaigns.

And for Scunthorpe, for whom it was their first victory over Rovers, they can now deservedly look forward to a possible meeting with a Premier League outfit in the second round.

Rovers boss Bowyer made it clear before the clash that he wanted no repeat of last season’s first-round exit to another team from the third tier of English football.

But that did not stop him from making 10 changes to the team which started Friday’s Championship opener against Cardiff City with captain-for-the-night Jason Lowe the only player to survive.

Bowyer, however, must have been regretting his decision after the Iron, managed by former Burnley assistant boss Russ Wilcox and featuring Rovers old boy Eddie Nolan, took a fully merited lead into half-time.

It may have been different had David Dunn put a finishing touch to a thrilling run and cross from strike-partner Josh King inside the first 50 seconds.

But Dunn, under pressure, could only stab the ball wide from six yards out.

Although Ben Marshall, in his first outing since January, twice warmed the hands of Sam Slocombe before the break, it was Wilcox’s side who carried the greater threat, particularly down the flanks.

Jack O’Connell, making his senior debut for Rovers, and Yann Songo’o, making his first appearance at Ewood for the club, were forced to make important clearances before Jake Kean parried away a brace of dangerous crosses.

It was the first time that Rovers had encountered referee Sebastian Stockbridge since he awarded a scarcely believable penalty against them in a 2-2 league draw at Barnsley in February with a furious Bowyer subsequently landing a one-game ban and a £3,000 fine for his conduct after the match.

But Stockbridge did Rovers a huge favour in the 27th minute when he inexplicably awarded them a free kick in their own box when it was clear that the fit-again Adam Henley had fouled Bishop.

But Bishop was not to be denied.

After Sean McAllister blazed over from 20 yards the former Blackpool midfielder escaped the attention of Songo’o to meet an inswinging Gary McSheffrey free kick and flash a fine header past Kean, back in the team after an eight-month absence.

And sluggish Rovers nearly conceded again before the opening period was out when Chris Taylor almost turned another McSheffrey corner into his own net.

Surprisingly Bowyer chose not to bring on any of his big guns for the start of the second half.

But there was a change in tempo – and not before time.

Marshall whipped over a free kick from the touchline which evaded everyone in the area before it was touched around the post by Slocombe.

Then the winger stood up a cross for Songo’o – who felt he was being fouled – to slice wide of the post.

But Marshall, now fully fit after ankle ligament damage and a summer illness, was soon replaced by Craig Conway with Rudy Gestede also coming on for Dunn.

And the substitutes nearly had an immediate impact as Gestede, dead centre of the goal, headed over a Conway corner when he should have at least hit the target.

Gestede thought he had hit the back of the net 14 minutes from time but his close-range effort was ruled out after Stockbridge adjudged Luke Varney to have fouled Slocombe.

And the final opportunity of an instantly forgettable night seemingly fell to Varney who, 10 yards from goal, could only head into Slocombe’s arms from a Conway cross, but there was still time for Gestede to head straight at the Scunthorpe stopper.

Rovers: Kean, Lowe, Songo'o, O'Connell, Henley, Marshall (Conway 62), Williamson, Taylor (Cairney 78), Varney, Dunn (Gestede 62) King. Subs not used: Eastwood, Rhodes, Baptiste, Evans.

Booked: King, Varney, Williamson.

Scunthorpe: Slocombe, Nolan, Canavan, Llera, Dawson, Myrie-Williams, McAllister, Bishop, McSheffrey, Madden, Taylor (Addison 85). Subs not used: Severn, Sparrow, Hawkridge, Adelakun, Bateson, Wootton.

Booked: Llera.

Well I'm bothered, seriously bothered. Although we have cut the expenses, a cup run will bring some money in. Bowyer plays the stiffs and out we go meaning another revenue stream is closed. If this was senior management in business with such neglect of duties when it comes to sustaining revenue he would be sacked!!
As jussy1307 rightly says winning breeds a winning mentality. If the first 11 need a rest after 1 game then they shouldn't be in the first 11. In case anyone was wondering, i'm not happy. Time for a change?

Not sure I agree. This can't be good for morale or the 'feel good factor' amongst the fans. If we win 4-0 at Blackpool then fair enough but this result does mean a lot to fans who pay a lot to watch rovers in every competition home and away.

Okay so this is real easy to understand - Players on low wages being used as back up is all well and good for the FFP until they actually have to play, they have no ability and would be best of in the lower leagues. People like Taylor, Williamson (once again), Varney, Henley, Kean and King all show extreme frailties in parts of their games and yet people with real potential like Rochina are allowed to leave, something really stinks.

Alright fine it was a league cup game, but the Cardiff game just showed how inexperienced Bowyer is as a manager or how little faith he actually has in his players. Had he have made the two subs when Cardiff were tiring we would have pushed on an won the game. Yet he floods the park with three DM's and then criticizes the team for not playing better in the final third, well that's because anybody who watched the match would have seen that aside from Gestede, Rhodes and Cairney most of our other players spent their time on the half way line passing back to our back four. Baptiste caught me off guard a few times with how high he was up the pitch but he showed more promise than half of the players who actually have contracts with the club. it does however say something when your RB and LB are the ones making the attacking movements when you are supposed to have a full midfield. Evans and Lowe and Williamson should never be on the pitch at the same time, unless Lowe is in defence because they have no attacking bones in their body.

He needs to sort it out and fast before we start dropping points like we did last season, defensive is great if your holding onto a lead but when you start defensive go a goal down no matter what you do there is no coming back from it.

Can't believe fans are calling for GB to go - get a sense of perspective, we've lost 1 game !!

Yes, it was a very poor result but what it really shows is the cronic lack of depth in the squad.

We have 8 or 9 excellent players and the rest are complete dross.

To have any chance of a top 6 finish these players need to stay fit and on form for every game, otherwise it could be a very long bleak winter.

Personally I wouldnt pick Williamson, Varney (why did we sign this guy???) or Taylor for any 1st team game, they just arnt good enough.

Need to bounce back quickly at Blackpool with a win - anything else will be a very poor result against the leagues whipping boys.

Secure the victory first – then give the fringe players a run out! GB just treated Scunthorpe with contempt in trying to be clever by making ten changes – and has he paid the price! If you make decisions like that they HAVE to pay off.

Looks like he is prone to gaffs. Total dominance but no penetration on Saturday and failing to do what every other manager would have done – shake things up from the bench.

Nor can he teach them how to score from set pieces – or stop their opponents from doing just that. Two games, two goals conceded from set pieces. And the goal we gifted Cardiff was an absolute howler.

Cardiff were awful on Saturday and, on that performance, will struggle never mind go straight back up to the Premier League. But we didn’t have one worthwhile effort in the second half. And GB did nothing but watch it fizzle out and let two points slip through his fingers.

At least he made some changes here but by that time he was fire-fighting.

What after one cup game your calling for Bowyer out, what if we played a full strength team tonight and rhodes and conway were injured during the game. Then who would you be blaming. I know... Bowyer.

I didn't bother going tonight as I knew what was going to happen, I saved my money and spent it on tickets for Blackpool. If you paid and are disappointed then your a mug as you knew it would be a weakened side.

The quote "Bowyer has taken us as far as he can". How do you know this, he has taken us from fighting relegation to fighting for promotion in a season. I forgot we should have gone up last year...

The possession football and the way we dominated the game against Cardiff was a joy to watch after the last few years. I agree change would have maybe changed things but the way Cardiff were defending (every man behind the ball bar Kenwyne) then I don't think there was much you could do to break it down.

Yes, it was a very poor result but what it really shows is the cronic lack of depth in the squad.

We have 8 or 9 excellent players and the rest are complete dross.

To have any chance of a top 6 finish these players need to stay fit and on form for every game, otherwise it could be a very long bleak winter.

Personally I wouldnt pick Williamson, Varney (why did we sign this guy???) or Taylor for any 1st team game, they just arnt good enough.

Need to bounce back quickly at Blackpool with a win - anything else will be a very poor result against the leagues whipping boys.

There are a lot of die-hard supporters that think GB does not have the tactical nouse to take Rovers forward, tonight he proved them all right!

And the unbeaten run gone - got to beat Blackpool and build a good league run.

That performance was diabolical and disrespectful to the fans who paid good money to watch - even kids for a quid were OVERCHARGED. The players should refund the supporters and if GB is insistent on playing squad players they should say so at the outset and not 30 minutes before the game,

What tonight showed ; Subs too late; no real alternative plan when things are not going right and too many players (some would say overpaid) are not good enough. I do not need to name names they should know themselves but I am certain the first team will not be loosing much sleep about being replaced by tis group. We have four wingers on the pitch and we condense play into one side then lump it forward and hope - there are very few players out there who can hold their hands up and said I did well tonight.

Winning breeds confidence - no feel good factor tonight. GB has brought pressure on himself and he deserves as much criticism as his players. The knives will be sharpening GB if there are any more performances like that.

Put a note in my diary AVOID ROVERS CUP GAMES in future better dropping the cash down the drain IT WAS THAT BAD

Angry From Accrington says...

A very shrewd move by Bowyer to demonstrate why only one of tonight's starting lineup is in his first choice eleven. Having taken so much stick on Friday for not bringing Dunn and King on, he showed us why.
That said, we had a perfectly good goal disallowed and two strong penalty shouts waved away.
For me, it was fifteen quid well spent to confirm my view that Henley, Songo, Williamson, Varney, Taylor and Dunn are not good enough. King and Marshall showed some promise and will feature in the promotion squad. I sympathise with those who believe they wasted £15 but they really should not have expected more. Just look at how many other Championship sides ducked out tonight.
Judge Bowyer on his league form, not meaningless cup games. The season starts again on Saturday

The possession football and the way we dominated the game against Cardiff was a joy to watch after the last few years. I agree change would have maybe changed things but the way Cardiff were defending (every man behind the ball bar Kenwyne) then I don't think there was much you could do to break it down.

Just hope the "team turn up against Blackpool and Norwich" or we are in for a bad season.

You see Boyer is not Blakey - no control. 3 bookings again did you note. No control. Its a real issue.
A little bit like Allardyce, Ince, Kean, Berg, Appleton and now Dull as Dishwater Bowyer. A decent manager is the issue.

A competent manager would have selected a winning team with a few fringe players knowing that more rounds equals more opportunities to play fringe players.

Now no more games to motivate players / fringe players to play in.

when will Taylors Varneys and Co next game.

Bowyer you will now do well to keep fringe players motivated.

Compare clown Bowyer with Aitor Karanka at Boro

Bowyer has come out with all the early excuses under the sun. Cardiff bring on a million pound player...Bowyers excuses and comments are banal and utterly clueless.

The fact he has left us totally exposed at the back when we all nee defence was his key priority during the summer just proves how utterly useless he and has backroom staff are.

He and his backroom staff who are all equally as useless by association are a total joke.

The possession football and the way we dominated the game against Cardiff was a joy to watch after the last few years.

Jeez, how many Dingles are on here tonight?

A number of players didn't enhance their reputations in that game, fortunately Jack O'Connell wasn't one of them. He performed very well and has a future in the game. He can only get better by having game time. I hope he gets the opportunities.

Even Songo'o looked better than last time I saw him at Carlisle, so a big improvement.

Tonight? Not enough decision makers on show, too easy for some to make the sideways pass and then repeat the process.

Not a wasted night though, what with JackO's performance and a few pints of Wainwrights!

Only a win at Blackpool now will be good enough to maintain any sort of pre-season optimism that was based on the final few games of the season were it was felt GB had learnt a lot and was getting his tactics and team selection right. But the last two games have told us he has learn't nothing and is making the same old mistakes again. To make so many changes for this game was to totally disrespect the opposition and boy they made him pay for it.

Poor, unacceptable.

10 changes from the team that drew with Cardiff, perhaps GB showing his naivety here, it was probably two or three changes too many.

Several fringe players were given an opportunity to shine and stake a claim but failed miserably.

These players should have been good enough to see off a well organised, hard working but to be brutally honest, run of the mill lower league side, guess what? Half the team didn't have a bloody clue.

Massive let down, not too bothered about the loss, we have bigger fish to fry, but I do expect to see some level of commitment, effort and skill from players that are reputedly two leagues better than their opponents.

The disallowed goal looked to be something of a joke, I honestly thought that their keeper clattered Varney before the ball broke free, not the other way around as the idiot ref saw it, but to be honest that would have been a get out of jail free card we didn't deserve.

Scunthorpe deserved their win hands down.

The only positives were the two young centre halves, Songo'o and O'Connell who look the part, the rest need to have a long hard look at themselves.

A very shrewd move by Bowyer to demonstrate why only one of tonight's starting lineup is in his first choice eleven. Having taken so much stick on Friday for not bringing Dunn and King on, he showed us why.
That said, we had a perfectly good goal disallowed and two strong penalty shouts waved away.
For me, it was fifteen quid well spent to confirm my view that Henley, Songo, Williamson, Varney, Taylor and Dunn are not good enough. King and Marshall showed some promise and will feature in the promotion squad. I sympathise with those who believe they wasted £15 but they really should not have expected more. Just look at how many other Championship sides ducked out tonight.
Judge Bowyer on his league form, not meaningless cup games. The season starts again on Saturday
Tend to agree apart from the fact I thought Songo'o was excellent, apart from a few minutes in the second half when he got a little flustered, but hey ho, it's all about opinion in the end.

Agree regarding Williamson, Varney, Taylor and Dunn (never thought I would say that about Dunny). We were playing with 7 men for most of the game.

King flatters to deceive, Marshall looked off the pace early on but came into it more as the game wore on as did Henley once he had Conway in front of him.

Wasn't a waste £14 in my case, I saw two youngsters I hadn't seen before and liked what I saw in that respect.

The disallowed goal looked to be something of a joke, I honestly thought that their keeper clattered Varney before the ball broke free, not the other way around as the idiot ref saw it, but to be honest that would have been a get out of jail free card we didn't deserve.

Scunthorpe deserved their win hands down.

The only positives were the two young centre halves, Songo'o and O'Connell who look the part, the rest need to have a long hard look at themselves.
Agree with your comments.

Same referee it seems who officiated at Barnsley last season, and that was an awful performance, one of the worst I have ever witnessed. I was on the Darwen End with family so didn't have a good view of events in 2nd half.
I'm in the Jack Walker upper, on the edge of the Blackburn End penalty area, everyone around me went up for the penalty it looked that obvious.

If we see it on the box and I am wrong I will hold my hand up.

Owd Nick I am in the same W11 area but I am sure sometimes we watch a different game. Ha ha!! Glad to see you are finally coming round to my way of thinking regarding Williamson. He is awful going forward and contributes nothing and is a liability when tackling. We need to play an attacking team with the wide players out wide and the best central midfield players playing in the middle. GB needs to learn and learn fast. We would have been in the play offs last season had we done that and we would have won against Cardiff on Friday had we done that. He sets up to defensive and it isn't doing us any favours. The only game I can recall last season when we went out attacking was against Leeds away at New Year. That day we played really well. Hope he changes and fast.

For me, it was fifteen quid well spent to confirm my view that Henley, Songo, Williamson, Varney, Taylor and Dunn are not good enough. King and Marshall showed some promise and will feature in the promotion squad. I sympathise with those who believe they wasted £15 but they really should not have expected more. Just look at how many other Championship sides ducked out tonight.
Judge Bowyer on his league form, not meaningless cup games. The season starts again on Saturday

Well I was at the game last night, and nothing has changed in GB's mentality towards games. Yes we may of played a weakened side but tactically we played the same negative system of play. Not getting forwards quick enough and the two CM (if that's what you can call them) where just a million miles off the pace. The gap between the midfield and forwards was huge and didn't allow us to get forward quick enough. Now this is a problem even when our strongest team plays, so for me it's a tactically inept manager that is the problem.

Watch GB when things are going well he is on the touch line directing his players, when we are under pressure he goes into himself and retires back to the bench, no idea how to change things. He plays a system and simply will not change it, for me you play to your players strengths not to a system. Also what is all this track suit wearing GB? You are the so called manager of BRFC a club with wonderful tradition in the game, and yet you turn out at every game in a bloody track suit looking like some non league manager, smarten up man and the players might respect you a little more!!

I want to give you a chance GB but in my opinion you are making too many school boy errors and portraying a poor image of our club. Was I bothered about last nights result? Hell yes we have not had a decent cup run for a while and this competition would of given us our best opportunity to do so. Saturday is huge for you now GB it quite simply is a no excuse must be 3 points game!!!

Some huge over reactions to this result. Yes I want Rovers to win every game but the fact is the Championship is a slog and we don't have the depth of squad to add in extra games.

Other clubs out last night included Ipswich and Wigan who we'll be fighting out with for the play offs.

For me the issue is the club should make a game like this free for season ticket holder or a dramatically reduced price if we're going to not really put a full effort in!

not thrilled with the result - but let's get a bit of perspective.

if this is followed by a three match losing streak - then there is cause for concern. as you say wigan (who many are tipping for automatic promotion) went out to lower league opposition as did ipswich (many on here campaigned for promotion specialist mccarthy to be rovers manager)....equally for some daft reason which i cannot figure - many are tipping wolves for a good season...well they got dumped last night too.

as you said, i would love us to win every game 5-0 - but i can't see that happening.

does make sense though to make this a freebie for season ticket holder - although i suspect both clubs would have to agree to that and there is nothing in it for the away team to get a better home attendance and no share of revenue.

Or maybe it is set up for the Return Of The Singh?

Get clear on Luke Varney, Chriss Taylor, Songo, Lee willimson
Ben Marshel need more playing time, send him for six month loan.
Dunn keep him in the dressing room to motivate others
Jake Kean, ask to watch the match and last season matches he played
Ollson ask to play with more confidence, avoid over reacting like his brother.
Spurr - lost touch
Brown - Never seen him
Lowe - keep him in right back(he already got a yellow card)
King - Tell him we are playing to win matches, not running fast into the box and smile.

Get experienced players in the back and in the wings. Otherwise this season Mid Table finish is sure again , if the senior players get injury, we are in trouble to keep the shape.I

Riverside 7 says...

I have never been a big fan of Gary Bowyer and have always held the opinion that he is not the man who will lead us back to the Premier League.
However, after the strong end to last season I conceded on this forum that he had done enough to justify retaining his position as manager.

Due to Sky re-scheduling the opening fixture against Cardiff to Friday night, I missed the season opener at Ewood.
Friends of mine had mixed views on the Cardiff game. A few said we had played OK whilst others said we had loads of possession but lacked penetration and created few chances.

I was therefore looking forward to seeing my first game against Scunthorpe last night, even after being unable to buy a seat in the Riverside and later learning that I had paid £15 to watch our ‘reserve side’.

Bowyer had done exactly the same thing last year and we lost away at Carlisle so I was very surprised when he made 10 changes from the team that started against Cardiff.
Especially as earlier in the week he had been saying he did not want to make the same mistakes as last year, and that he wanted to progress in the competition.

A strong run from Josh King in the first minute created a good chance for Dunny, but that was as good as it got in the first half.
We were lethargic, far too slow, had no penetration (again) but more importantly lacked aggression and the desire to win.

You have got to question Bowyer’s ability to motivate his players and send out a team the enthusiasm and will to win.

Having said all that, when I looked at the team he had selected I saw that we had;-
A central midfielder (Lowe) at right back.
A right back playing at left back (Henley)
A wide midfield player playing in the centre (Taylor)
Another wide midfielder / winger (King) playing as a central striker
A central midfield player (Dunn) playing up front
A central striker (Varney) playing out wide

Throw into the mix, 2 inexperienced centre-backs, a central midfielder (Williamson) who does not create a thing, and is it any wonder the team he selected did not gel.

I simply do not understand why managers cannot give the League Cup and the fans some respect by playing a first eleven.

The 2nd half was little better.

I could not even say that Scunthorpe played particularly well but based on our lethargic performance we are out of the League cup once again in the first round.

Simply not good enough Bowyer.

Truly embarrassing tonight after all the pre-match hype.

There are a lot of die-hard supporters that think GB does not have the tactical nouse to take Rovers forward, tonight he proved them all right!
I’m not calling for GB to be sacked, but his judgement appears to be lacking. He steadfastly refused to inject new impetus from the bench against Cardiff when we were playing well but getting nowhere, then takes an almighty gamble by making ten changes against Scunthorpe.

I questioned at the time of his appointment whether he would be a long-term solution or a short term fix. Yes, he has stabilised the club, but now the chips are down and he has to prove himself as a manager.

He has no track record, no experience and a pretty ordinary team around him. At the moment some of the players he has brought in appear to be poor choices. So the question has to be – has he the skill and judgement to become a successful manager?

It gives me no pleasure to say this, but I honestly doubt it. In the two games so far he has heaped pressure upon himself by his lack of judgement.

Having said that, I hope he is never sacked. He does not deserve that for what he has achieved in handling the turmoil that he was thrust into. But will he ever be a manager?

It would seem our 2nd stringers are not up to it. We need more quality cover. Hopefully we can produce some backlash on Saturday against Blackpool

Are you a total idiot first you come on our pages and then you slag your lads off this can happen its called the cup im a Claret to the very end but if I were a Blues fan Id get right behind my team and stop slaging them off
Our pages are also full of them - we have the AnotherPuunding4Burn
ley who, despite his name, professes to be a Burnley fan but is the idiot formerly known as Keep Darwen Green and FakeVilla; we also have the original Turf MoorTom, a guy who pretended to be a Burnley fan in his early days but was so uber-thick that he got easily outed and now trolls the Burnley articles.

I really can't understand Burnley fans pretending to be Rovers fans and vice versa - although the TurfMoor Tom rogue seems to have quietened down the original fool so maybe all is not bad!

Poor, unacceptable.

10 changes from the team that drew with Cardiff, perhaps GB showing his naivety here, it was probably two or three changes too many.

Several fringe players were given an opportunity to shine and stake a claim but failed miserably.

These players should have been good enough to see off a well organised, hard working but to be brutally honest, run of the mill lower league side, guess what? Half the team didn't have a bloody clue.

Massive let down, not too bothered about the loss, we have bigger fish to fry, but I do expect to see some level of commitment, effort and skill from players that are reputedly two leagues better than their opponents.

The disallowed goal looked to be something of a joke, I honestly thought that their keeper clattered Varney before the ball broke free, not the other way around as the idiot ref saw it, but to be honest that would have been a get out of jail free card we didn't deserve.

Scunthorpe deserved their win hands down.

The only positives were the two young centre halves, Songo'o and O'Connell who look the part, the rest need to have a long hard look at themselves.
Agree with your comments.

Same referee it seems who officiated at Barnsley last season, and that was an awful performance, one of the worst I have ever witnessed. I was on the Darwen End with family so didn't have a good view of events in 2nd half.
I'm in the Jack Walker upper, on the edge of the Blackburn End penalty area, everyone around me went up for the penalty it looked that obvious.

If we see it on the box and I am wrong I will hold my hand up.

It was the idiot ref from Barnsley, nuff said.
I'm same area.
W11W1 Seat 217, front row, introduce yourself.
I was in Darwen End with son and friends tonight

In all honesty who really cares?

I don't go on the Burnley threads anymore because of idiot trolls and I do my best to avoid answering them on here; it's not easy, they have so many ID's running the only way you can spot them is linguistic DNA.

There is one particular troll who is currently playing both sides of the coin, the "joke" being it doesn't support either club but people keep replying to it, feeding it.

It's simple really, don't feed the troll(s).

I agree I tried to basically shame and insult them but it didn't work and therefore I have given up altogether. They use BUrnley names on the Burnley threads and Rovers on the Rovers threads and some people don't know what to make of them. It would be priceless if someone actually found out their true address and posted it online, now that would be priceless.
