Garry Monk was left to reflect on five minutes of madness and admitted his side only had themselves to blame for letting their one goal sleep at Ewood Park.

Jacob Murphy came off the bench to put Wednesday ahead, but late goals from Tosin Adarabioyo and John Buckley consigned Monk to just a second defeat since taking charge.

Adarabioyo levelled in the 88th minute before substitute Buckley struck the winner for Rovers with a deflected effort in the first minute of injury time.

Wednesday would have moved joint third had they held on for a win, but instead, slipped out of the play-off spots.

Monk said: “We have ourselves to blame. That lack of concentration in the last five minutes proved costly. But that’s something we have to deal with and take on the chin.

“For the game we had planned for, the conditions and the type of team we were playing, it was exactly what we prepared for.

“To be in the position we wanted to be in in the 85th minute, of course it’s hugely disappointing to give up those three points as we did.

“For that five minute period we lost concentration, made a couple of individual mistakes and paid the price. I’m hugely disappointed.

“We worked incredibly hard to put ourselves into the position we were in.

“For the sake of five minutes it’s a kick in the teeth for the players everyone involved. But it’s a lesson that you can’t afford to switch off in those five minute moments that you have. It proved costly.”

The first half saw few clear-cut chances, but in the second, Keiren Westwood saved well from Joe Rothwell, Adam Armstrong and Lewis Travis, with Christian Walton denying Kadeem Harris before a stunning stop late on from Sam Hutchinson.

“We had our moments, they had some of theirs. It was a very well competed game,” Monk reflected on the game.

“It was a tough one to take. We came up against everything we expected in the build-up to the game.

“We knew it would be a tough test, but we did well for majority of the game and earned the lead.

“From that position we shouldn’t have lost the game, but individual errors and a lack of concentration have cost us the win.

“These things happen in football, but we know we can learn from this and make sure that it doesn’t happen again.”
