Speaking to the club’s official website, Blackburn Rovers manager Tony Mowbray has said that he and his side are delighted to have come away with three points after they defeated Derby County 1-0 at Ewood Park, making it four wins on the bounce.
Blackburn Rovers made it four wins from their last four matches with a 1-0 win over Derby County on Saturday afternoon. Forward Adam Armstrong scored the only goal of the game, firing home from the edge of the box just before the hour mark to secure all three points for Tony Mowbray’s side.
Now, speaking after the game, Mowbray expressed his delight at the three points, adding that he was happy his side didn’t succumb to the threat of some of the Rams’ key players. He said:
“First of all we’re delighted to get the three points over the line. Adam had a good chance towards the end of the first half and should have scored, a few things flashed about their six-yard, but we didn’t have loads of clear-cut chances.
“It was a pretty controlled performance for the majority of the game and we played the game mainly in their half.
“They’re a dangerous team on transition. They have ball carriers in [Tom] Lawrence and [Duane] Holmes and have a powerful boy upfront in [Martyn] Waghorn. It was a dangerous game for us but we saw off their threats and scored an amazing. Let’s put the points in the bag and move on.”
The win sees Blackburn rise to 10th place in the Championship table, just two points away from 6th placed Sheffield Wednesday. At the other end of the spectrum, yet another away loss for Derby County leaves them in 16th place and without a win on the road since the opening day of the season.
