Boss Bowyer wants Rovers to build on Foxes point

Lancashire Telegraph: Matt Kilgallon heads home Rovers' goal against Leicester Matt Kilgallon heads home Rovers' goal against Leicester

BLACKBURN Rovers have been warned their superb showing against leaders Leicester City will count for little if they fail to follow it up at fellow play-off outsiders Watford tomorrow.

Gary Bowyer was delighted with the way his side performed in Saturday’s thrilling 1-1 home draw with the table-topping Foxes.

But after praising their display the Rovers boss immediately set them the challenge of replicating it at fortress Vicarage Road where Watford have won six successive matches without conceding a goal.

Bowyer said: “We’ve got to kick on now, we can’t rest on our laurels.

“We can’t go to Watford thinking we’ve done it just because we’ve drawn with the league leaders.

“We have to go there with the same mentality that we showed on Saturday and try and get something.”

Rovers are now nine points behind the play-off places albeit with a game in hand on sixth-placed Reading.

But Bowyer believes they will go into the final 10 matches of the campaign with confidence high after going close to ending Leicester’s three-month unbeaten run.

“I thought it was one hell of a game from start to finish,” said Bowyer.

“The two teams really went at it and didn’t stop. It was a fully entertaining game for the neutral, there were chances galore at both ends, but we were disappointed we didn’t take one or two of ours.

“But I think on reflection a draw was probably a fair result.

“I thought we were excellent throughout the game but in particular the first 15 minutes of the second half we were tremendous.

“We ran the league leaders close so we can take a lot of confidence and a lot of belief from that.”

Bowyer’s pleasure was tempered by the injury sustained by recalled right-back Adam Henley.

The youngster was stretchered off late on after going over on his ankle when trying to block a cross from marauding Leicester left-back Jeff Schlupp.

Bowyer had no plans to re-enter the market before the emergency loan window closes on Thursday, but if Henley’s injury is proved serious he may attempt to sign cover.

Todd Kane is expected to start at right-back against Watford tomorrow as midfielder Jason Lowe – who played there in the 4-2 win at Huddersfield Town last Saturday – is nursing an ankle injury of his own.

Bowyer also has the option of moving on-loan ace Michael Keane from centre back to right back once captain Grant Hanley fully recovers from a hamstring problem.

“Grant has done some light training but it would have been a gamble to put him in on Saturday,” said Bowyer.

“We felt he could do with a couple days more training while Lowey just wasn’t fit.”

While an attempt at the plays offs this season is now just a tad optimistic GB is only saying what he is expected to say, that we have a chance, that's all.

Probably a much better chance in fact than Burnley have of not being relegated by Christmas next season.

Do you go to the games? We are constantly suffering from injuries so you have to say we have been unlucky in that respect.

Yes bowyer is making mistakes but he is learning from his mistakes.

Look at it this way- last year we were close to relegation narrowly missing it in the last few games of the season. This year not a million miles from the play-offs. Think morons like you need to wobble your head. Who would you appoint billy Davies who has just been sacked for a poor run of form?

PL has been a lot better this season. The reason, watching ManU struggle. Seeing Arsenal getting hammered etc plus watching referees making huge cockups.

The word 'play-offs' should not be associated with us anymore its embarrassing. Just because we scraped a draw against the number one team (who didn't even seem to be out of second gear all game) and now we're back in the mix?? We have bought mid-table championship players all season, so guess where we're going to end up? And once we get our transfer embargo next season and sell off Rhodes we'll be lucky to stay up. Call me all doom and gloom but it's the reality my fellow Rover friends.

Let me guess... another "play-off push"?

You couldn't make it up!

You clowns never learn do you. You are far from being good enough to reach the play-off's and mid-table is where you'll stay. That is until the financial issues take centre stage next season and the slide down to league one begins.

For all your bummed up nonsense about improving under Bowyer I believe you are now a total of 5 points better off than you were at this point last season.. what a shambles.

Why is it pure fantasy?

Have you seen what has happened to the teams at the top once they've played us?

Look at QPR, Derby and Forest, before and after their defeats at Turf Moor. They all came to us on good runs of form and you were CONVINCED that we would lose and "the wheels would come off".....

Obviously Leicester will be a tough game as they want to kill off our title challenge but now that you've done us a big favour by taking two points off them I expect doubts will be creeping in. They will beat Yeovil no doubt but if we can keep pace with a win over Doncaster and then beat Leicester at home on Saturday we've closed the gap from 13 points to 2 points.

Leicester have yet to play Wigan (away), Reading (away) and QPR (home) so plenty of scope for them drop a point or two on the run in.

So your "pure fantasy" claim is just one more of those no-dad wish list items that are gradually being taken off you.

You'll soon be left with only natural disasters to cling to in your hope for us to avoid the league title / automatic promotion / promotion via the play-offs (delete as applicable).

You really are a pathetic specimen.

You appear to be under the illusion that there is a single Rovers fan on here who;

a: actually reads what you regurgitate ad nauseam.
b: actually gives a flying feck what happens at your pathetic little club.

The only time I have any interest in Burnley is when we have to play them, pure and simple, you on the other hand are so fixated with Rovers all I can think is that you are a closet fan in abject denial.

On the other hand it is good to see the fans of such a small club so excited because their team is doing so well, clubs of similar stature like Fleetwood, Morecambe and even Accrington Stanley should take note and follow your excellent example.

So you have managed to have a great season, the first in how long exactly?, You somewhat luckily beat Rovers for the first time in (for many) living memory, and you have probably amassed enough points to get promoted directly to the PL.

Well done.

If that's the case I honestly hope you really enjoy the experience but there is one thing that Rovers have achieved that Burnley will never, ever do, we have our name etched forever on the PL trophy.

Why is it pure fantasy?

Have you seen what has happened to the teams at the top once they've played us?

Look at QPR, Derby and Forest, before and after their defeats at Turf Moor. They all came to us on good runs of form and you were CONVINCED that we would lose and "the wheels would come off".....

Obviously Leicester will be a tough game as they want to kill off our title challenge but now that you've done us a big favour by taking two points off them I expect doubts will be creeping in. They will beat Yeovil no doubt but if we can keep pace with a win over Doncaster and then beat Leicester at home on Saturday we've closed the gap from 13 points to 2 points.

Leicester have yet to play Wigan (away), Reading (away) and QPR (home) so plenty of scope for them drop a point or two on the run in.

So your "pure fantasy" claim is just one more of those no-dad wish list items that are gradually being taken off you.

You'll soon be left with only natural disasters to cling to in your hope for us to avoid the league title / automatic promotion / promotion via the play-offs (delete as applicable).

You really are a pathetic specimen.

26 (TWENTY-SIX) points
32 goals.
5 years.
You appear to be under the illusion that there is a single Rovers fan on here who;

a: actually reads what you regurgitate ad nauseam.
b: actually gives a flying feck what happens at your pathetic little club.

The only time I have any interest in Burnley is when we have to play them, pure and simple, you on the other hand are so fixated with Rovers all I can think is that you are a closet fan in abject denial.

On the other hand it is good to see the fans of such a small club so excited because their team is doing so well, clubs of similar stature like Fleetwood, Morecambe and even Accrington Stanley should take note and follow your excellent example.

So you have managed to have a great season, the first in how long exactly?, You somewhat luckily beat Rovers for the first time in (for many) living memory, and you have probably amassed enough points to get promoted directly to the PL.

Well done.

If that's the case I honestly hope you really enjoy the experience but there is one thing that Rovers have achieved that Burnley will never, ever do, we have our name etched forever on the PL trophy.
But did you do it without a massive and unfair financial advantage?

No you say.... well there we have it.

Success based entirely on being able to spend more than the next man is not success in the true sense of the word. Without Jack Walker you would never have clawed your way out of the 2nd division.

Burnley have reached the Premier League the honest way once already, and we look set to do it a second time. Something you clowns will never achieve. Burnley have won all four divisions of English football, been crowned champions of the top flight twice, reached the quarter final of the European Cup, and have risen from the brink of extinction to look down on you morons from 2nd place in the league, a massive, record breaking 26 points above you... and we've just beaten you on your own patch.

Your comparison of Burnley to the likes of Fleetwood, Morecambe and even Accrington Stanley, a joke though it is, could well be more applicable to your club in the not too distant future. Next season will be an interesting one in many ways.

Keep clinging onto your history, and keep looking up!

People like you and Dim Dave wouldn't know realism if it jumped up and smacked you in the eye. Every Rovers fan on this page knows that GB and the team still have to improve to make the play-offs next season, but they also know that the reality is that we were heading for league 2 last year before GB took over.

Also reality is that Rovers on and off the pitch are in a much better position this season than last year, some of GB signings are clearly not good enough, but in your fantasy world who is manager who never made a bad signing? Very old saying but, "The man who never made a mistake never made anything'.

We are all hoping that GB will learn from his mistakes and improve again next season, then we could challenge for a play off place or even automatic promotion.

Looks like I've touched another raw no-dad nerve there.

He's really thrown that dummy out..

Ask yourself this Mungo, would anyone other club, at that particular time, have been willing to pay the transfer fee and wages to land Alan Shearer? Or Chris Sutton? Didn't you break the transfer record twice with those two players? Could you have done that without Jack Walkers money?

The answer is no. Walkers money bought the title. Walkers money kept you in the premier league, the Walker Trust funded you for years after Jacks death out of respect for his wishes, but when they'd finally had enough of bankrolling you they sold to the first bunch of clowns simple enough to take on your embarrassment of a football club, with its then£23million of debt. So now that the money has all gone, where do you find yourselves? Right back where you started, looking up at Burnley. Your "success" was fake, your Premier League years all funded by the ill-gotten gains of an old man who was taken advantage of.

I know its hard for you lot to take but its a fact. Walkers money has distorted and stained our beautiful game to such an extent that the governing bodies have to impose punishments on clubs trying to live beyond their means, and it's poetic justice that the instigators of this mess are finally being brought to account for it.

Your entire world has imploded with the Clarets meteoric rise and your own continued decline into obscurity, we've taken away your 34 years, we've beaten you at Ewood Park, and we're heading for automatic promotion whilst you lot b!tch and moan about the "glory days" as you look up at your superiors in a seething jealous rage.

We have won the top division in English football twice you moron. They call it the Premier League these days but its the same thing. There are four division just like there always were, and we've won the top one twice.

To win all four divisions, and to come back from the brink of extinction to be where we are today shows what our club is made of.

26 points.
