Speaking to the Lancashire Telegraph, Blackburn Rovers manager Tony Mowbray has reflected on a tough week, admitting that their tally of one point from two home games only made their 4-2 defeat to Queens Park Rangers worse.

Blackburn Rovers will be happy to put the last week behind them. They started off a run of three games within the space of seven days with a home defeat to Luton Town, with Graeme Jones’ side defeating them 2-1 at Ewood Park. Rovers then drew with Nottingham Forest in which they arguably deserved to win.

They finished their third game in seven days with a defeat to Queens Park Rangers, who put on a clinical attacking display to defeat Rovers 4-2 at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium. Now, manager Tony Mowbray has admitted it was a tough week and said that they need to be more clinical and cut out errors if they want to turn around their form. He said:

“It was a tough week for us because we deserved a lot more in the two home games. You don’t deserve to win games if you don’t defend better than we did. I’ve got no complaints about (QPR).”

“Sometimes you get spells where it just doesn’t go your way and whether it’s confidence dips or what I’m not sure. I didn’t think second half there was a lack of confidence, there was a lack of ability one-on-one and giving the ball away cheaply at times.

“I know we’ve got good attacking players but it’s just a balance between how much you protect your backline and how much you support your frontline.”
