INCENSED Gary Bowyer has promised an instant reaction in Good Friday’s home clash with Yeovil Town after Blackburn Rovers blew the chance to move within two points of the play-off places.

Bowyer delivered a short and sharp post-match team talk after Saturday’s 3-3 draw at Sheffield Wednesday in which he let his players know that their performance had not been up to scratch.

Rovers threw away a two-goal lead at an emotionally charged Hillsborough to leave their hopes of finishing in the top six hanging by a thread.

Bowyer knows that only four wins from the final four can happen in this Championship. But there will be a reaction from our lot on Friday.

“There’s four games to go and four games to win – it’s as simple that.

“But we can’t keep scoring goals and defending like we did.

“If we do keep scoring goals and stop giving silly goals we might give ourselves half a chance.”

It was the fifth time this season that Rovers have missed the opportunity to make it three straight league wins in a row for the first time in a single campaign since January 2008.

And Bowyer, who also lamented his side’s inability to take the chances that came their way when they were 3-1 up, admitted they had no-one else to blame.

He said: “You can’t keep coming away from home like we do, scoring three goals and go away with only one point.

“It is nobody else’s fault today except ourselves. I think against Millwall and Watford we had justification that it was out of our hands with the penalty decisions that were given but today it has been totally our own doing.

“We’ve had enough chances in the second half to put the game to bed and then our defending, especially in the last minute of the game, was not good enough.

“We were trying to score another goal instead of being professional and seeing the game out.

“At both ends of the pitch we’ve not been good enough today.”

Asked whether his players were as angry as him, Bowyer said: “I don’t know, I’ve not hung around long enough to see.”

Tenth-placed Rovers, who are unbeaten in eight games, finds themselves four points off sixth position.

But that gap will stretch to six points if Reading win at home to table-topping Leicester City tonight.

Midfielder David Dunn missed out against the Owls with a calf strain but Rovers are hopeful he will be fit to face second-from-bottom Yeovil.

But you are the Manager GB and should be instilling it into the players that when 3 - 1 up with not much time left you keep the ball, keep a clear head an don't do stupid stuff. Its happened more than once so the message isn't getting through. 4 wins in 4? Pigs might fly!!

I don't know why everybody keeps blaming Bowyer. When we went down in the 1960s it took us 25 years + to get back to the top league, it isn't an easy task.

Since taking charge we have gone from relegation possibles to just missing out on the play-offs in one season, so I'm not going to blame Bowyer for us just missing out. What were people expecting this season - promotion? As long as were keep making progress I will keep backing him. It is stupid not to.

ever since kean (and even to some extend allardyce) rovers appear incapable of lasting for 90(+) minutes. Under kean we ran out of steam after 70(ish) minutes if we were winning or drawing and were left clinging on for the rest of the time hoping that the oppo was rubbish enough not to convert their chances - to me this shows that there must be summat going on at the training ground that the players are simply not fit enough.

The reason is that GB has been out witted with substitutions or lack of them by each opposing manager for most games this season. His general ability to make the right changes at the right time seems non existant and appears to be a massive weakness. Yes he has made a lot of progress in lots of different ways but has he got the tactical know how to take the club one step further for a promotion challenge. With the golden opportunities he has spurned this season it would suggest maybe not. Most of us really would like GB to succeed and especially in terms of a promotion push but his obvious lack of tactical knowledge may be his undoing if he can't step up a gear next season

Hi Hass, that is easy to explain:

Under Allardyce the team (esp the defenders) were that tired from chasing up and down the pitch after those pointless long hopefull? hoofballs and long throws and free kicks that all their energy had gone by the 70 mins mark.

Under Kean, a bit of the same long hopeless ball stragegy still applied - but more importantly I think the players were that pi**ed off to see that Kean was standing there after 70 mins and had not been sacked, so they gave up at that point so as to try help get him ousted and to help the fans protests.

Under GB we at last got rid of the hoofball habit - but because we have more possession (usually) as we are playing more football plus since we started scoring quite a few goals, the rest of the team expects Rhodes to always be able to score another goal that will win the match, so they ease off the pace a little.

Or maybe its just that you have a wonky Fast Forward button on your TV remote :-)

I think that`s too general a comment Rover 45, GB has shown he is learning quickly on the job and should be given more credit based on facts.

After the three really bad defeats (for club and fans) against the 3 Bs (Bolton, Burnley and B`mouth) we have been (and still are) on a very decent unbeaten run which has taken us within shouting distance of the play-offs - which we all agreed looked impossible just four short weeks ago.

In the last fortnight we just took 7 out of 9 points from three decent teams who are now above us in the league (QPR, Brighton and Ipswich) and before that we got a hard earned point in a draw with the Champions elect Leicester. Plus we gathered away points at Huddersfield (win) and Millwall and Watford.

We would not be on this unbeaten run and would surely not have got those important points against some of the best teams in the league if our manager had `poor tactical know-how`....!

I am not sure which manager fans think could have come in and done a better than GB at Ewood under this seasons strange circumstances? I really hope that he is given next season to further prove himself to the doubters out there but for me and a lot of Rovers fans he has done the business for us already and he fully deserves to be rewarded with a longer term contract now.

I do agree it is progress BUT somethng is stil not right with the team. I was there on Saturday and we threw away 2 points, we cannot see games out, and to be a success in this league you have to be able to do just that. Wednesday were not creating many chances but they did enough and almost won it as well. The most dissappointing aspect of this season is that our squad is as good as any in this league, but the reason we have not made the play offs at least is the lack of consistency and beng tough enough to take a game by the scruff of the neck and dominate it...we have good players who go missing when they are needed most. Sort that aspect, keep the majority of the squad together, add a bit of steel by getting rid of the likes of Best Etuhu and Campbell to free up wages for those needed and we can have a great season unfortunately it will have to wait until next season.

not sure i can fully agree with that summary. a wednesday fan could easily comment on the same game by saying, "they created loads more than we did and should have won comfortably. we got away with it... and we were at home."
we've drawn a lot this season, with some about not holding onto a lead, but many because we've not given up.
i don't understand people claiming the solution to the lack of consistency is to remove the manager. i know that;s not necessarily what you're saying, but others are. i would be surprised if we had any consistency at all, given the utter turmoil at the club in recent times. this squad is undoubtedly making progress and our current run is 8 unbeaten. we're still in with a playoff shout with 4 games to go. i think most of us would have taken that at the start of the season.
i think it's important to see past the odd game here or there where it hasn't gone right. pretty much every team, including leicester, could say that in the championship because it is so competitive.
this current team and manager get my absolute support for what they are doing, because there is enthusiasm and entertainment in what they're doing. i'd take that for a couple of seasons on it's own, but i think both squad and manager are likely to improve if given the opportunity. if so, then next year we could be firmly in a playoff or promotion place by now.

Some good comments on here. The fact we've an outside chance of the playoffs is a tribute to the turnaround under GB's stewardship. I'm delighted that we have an upstanding manager who appreciates the tradition of the club and demands pride in the shirt from the players.

He's up against a lot of experienced managers in this div. He won't win every tactical battle but I think he's done admirably especially given the necessary wholesale changes to the team.

I'm delighted he's got the support of most on here. Keep up the good work Gaz.

The reason is that GB has been out witted with substitutions or lack of them by each opposing manager for most games this season. His general ability to make the right changes at the right time seems non existant and appears to be a massive weakness. Yes he has made a lot of progress in lots of different ways but has he got the tactical know how to take the club one step further for a promotion challenge. With the golden opportunities he has spurned this season it would suggest maybe not. Most of us really would like GB to succeed and especially in terms of a promotion push but his obvious lack of tactical knowledge may be his undoing if he can't step up a gear next season
I think that`s too general a comment Rover 45, GB has shown he is learning quickly on the job and should be given more credit based on facts. After the three really bad defeats (for club and fans) against the 3 Bs (Bolton, Burnley and B`mouth) we have been (and still are) on a very decent unbeaten run which has taken us within shouting distance of the play-offs - which we all agreed looked impossible just four short weeks ago. In the last fortnight we just took 7 out of 9 points from three decent teams who are now above us in the league (QPR, Brighton and Ipswich) and before that we got a hard earned point in a draw with the Champions elect Leicester. Plus we gathered away points at Huddersfield (win) and Millwall and Watford. We would not be on this unbeaten run and would surely not have got those important points against some of the best teams in the league if our manager had `poor tactical know-how`....! I am not sure which manager fans think could have come in and done a better than GB at Ewood under this seasons strange circumstances? I really hope that he is given next season to further prove himself to the doubters out there but for me and a lot of Rovers fans he has done the business for us already and he fully deserves to be rewarded with a longer term contract now.
All I can say Frenchy is that my comments come from sitting down and watching every home game of which I appreciate you can not do at this time, but if you had done I would suggest that even you may start to question his tactical abilty to change games at the right time during the match in order to secure maximum points. Yes he deserves another year but would suggest his present rolling contract is sufficient until he has proved that he imroved on the tactical front.

Fair point 45, there is absolutely no substitute for being at a game, win lose or draw and no tv coverage however many cameras and replays there are can ever hope to replicate that.

Cracking post, totally agree.

There's more to GB than meets the eye, we have to follow the example of Leicester, last season they were pretty much in the same position we are now.

A could have, would have, should have season and Pearson was taking the flack with lots of fans wanting him sacked, but the board stood by him and look what happened this season.

GB has an eye for a player who can fit into his plans and can do a job for him (and us) Pearson was doing the same for Leicester last season.

We can't keep sacking managers, tearing teams apart and starting again, it's ludicrous, expensive, disruptive and all for what?

Impatient fans who want everything yesterday?

Just look at the PL, out of the 20 teams I would guess that the fans of just 7 clubs, Liverpool, City, Everton, Southampton, Stoke, Palace and Hull are happy with their managers. Chelsea I am not sure of.

The rest want change, it's probably the same in every league.

It's stupid. Managers need more than a season to stamp their ethos on a club.

An accurate comment from Sean Dyche.

Burnley have been on the receiving end of some shocking decisions this season, we have had 8 clear penalties not given, we have been robbed in the last minute by a handball leading to an equalising goal, we've had no luck with injuries losing both of our strikers, one of them to a serious cruciate ligament injury, we had also lost our main assist provider in Trippier at a bad time due to injury. Had we been more fortunate with the decisions that have gone against us then we'd have been promoted weeks ago.

Thankfully both Ings and Trippier are back and with that freak result out of the way (QPR had 3 freak results by the way, losing to Blackburn, Bournemouth and Sheff Weds; Derby also had one in losing to Middlesbrough the week before us), we'll be looking good for promotion over the Easter weekend, either at Blackpool or home to Wigan, should Derby fail to win.

I'm sure your bitterness and jealousy is only going to get worse once the inevitable is confirmed. I think that's when you'll be speechless.

It's so sad really, like shooting fish in a barrel, not sport at all.

Although the statement has been made I only posted it because it was so fecking ludicrous and to see if the troll would react, and it did.

Having a laugh at the most biased and stupid statement by a manager this season doesn't mean I or any other Rovers fan has any interest whatsoever in your poxy little club, quite the opposite in fact.

Wrong. You mention Burnley at every possible opportunity.

At the present time you can think of little else, that much is quite obvious.

The fact that we beat you still clearly hurts, perhaps more so than the fact that we have dominated you in every single area this season and look bound for the Premier League while you suffer the indignity of a transfer embargo, a third successive attempt at climbing out of the Championship, and the loss of your better players to reduce an astronomical wage bill.

Our "poxy little club" is currently on the verge of a £120million jackpot while yours is on the verge of complete and utter financial meltdown.

I doubt you'll be having a laugh if we are promoted this weekend, in fact I doubt we hear any of your anti-Burnley nonsense for some considerable time.

Those no-dad necks will be fully wound in very soon.

before the game i thought we can't win, otherwise we'd better our two wins in a row record (pppfftttt some record) but going into the second half i thought we'd done enough.....but no!!!!!!!!!....our lot proved my original prediction right.

who do we blame?.....the players?.....the manager?.....i know who i blame, a man who i still consider not good enough and i'm yet to be proved wrong..
how can we beat a team above us in the league (QPR) and have a two goal lead against a lower team than us and come away with a point???

there were some good individual performances but that ugly word reared it's ugly head again "INCONSISTENT"....no
w if you have the team and squad you have put together why the inconsistencies Gary?.... what are they or you doing wrong.....and don't give us the old gem...we're a young squad and are still gelling cr*p....it doesn't wash any more.

we find ourselves relying on Leicester to do us a favor but as we know too well....no one does anyone any favors in this league,,,,NOT GOOD ENOUGH GARY.....BY FAR.....a new season...a new crack at getting promotion....a new manager, some one who can install some ethics, commitment, consistency and heart into our squad....it's simple....but lets face it....the chicken pluckers dont do things the easy way....

my one question to the muppets in india is will you come and face the fans.....well....no of course you wont....is it because of your draconian, backward class system....or because you lot are just COWARDS and can't face up to what you've done to our club......DROP DEAD THE LOT OF YOU!

As much as I hate to admit an old dingle has some valid points, Dyche had a much smaller squad than Bowyer and got the best out of them. Dyche is far more tactically astute than GB and adapted the dingle game and that is why the table does not lie. Trouble is that won't save them in the premiership and they will be the whipping boys and back down as the squad hasn't the ability and the board won't invest, just rub the hands at the thought of those parachute payments. However you look at it, Dyche has to be championship manager of the year for what he has achieved from his squad. GB has brought a decent squad together but he cannot get the best out of them and we see it again and again as his Kean like tactics cost us points. Good luck to the dingles, the table does not lie. The decision for Rovers is do we carry on being GBs learning acadamy and stay mid table championship for the next 3 or 4 seasons whilst Rhodes and the likes leave dis illusioned or bring in a manager to get the best our if the squad? If we go into next season with Bowyers inexperience and tactical limitations we will drop points left right and centre again and be in this position again in 12 months - anyone think differently I'd love to know why and what will be different next term. If GB is to stay bring a decent mentor in as director of football to speed up his development.

Impressed by Bowyers reaction to Saturday. He came and applauded us fans for our efforts, scalded the players for what was a poor result given the score at half time and he made no excuses for himself or the players. A few months back we would have gotten a string of Kean style excuses. If we can stamp out the late goals and stupid penalties we'll go a long way next season. Personally I'd like to hear what Craig short has to say on the subject. For me everything seems to slowly be coming together. I was angry on Saturday but looking back we played really really well. Backing Bowyer to take us to the next level next season.
