Full time: Ipswich Town 3 Blackburn Rovers 1

This Is Lancashire: Jordan Rhodes scored for Rovers Jordan Rhodes scored for Rovers

Ipswich moved up to eighth in the Sky Bet Championship after claiming their first home win since the end of September at the expense of a poor Blackburn side.

Luke Hyam and Carlos Edwards grabbed early goals at the start of each half - Jordan Rhodes scoring his 11th of the season in between - before Frank Nouble wrapped up a 3-1 win following a horrendous error by Rovers goalkeeper Jake Kean.

The home side took the lead with just three minutes and 42 seconds on the clock - but had already survived an even earlier scare when Rovers striker DJ Campbell turned in the area but was denied by a great one-handed save from Dean Gerken.

Instead it was the home side who enjoyed more success in front of goal when Tommy Smith’s deep cross was headed away by Tommy Spurr but Hyam was perfectly positioned on the edge of the area to rifle low beyond Kean.

Town were on top and David McGoldrick’s penchant for shooting from range was again evident but his left-footed drive fizzed wide of Kean’s right post with 14 minutes played.

Ipswich skipper Edwards also went close from the edge of the area before the home side fell for a sucker punch from their former player.

Scott Dann’s long ball seemed innocuously but as the Town defence stood still, Rhodes ran on to round Gerken and tap into the empty net.

It was Rhodes’ first goal in five against the club who sold him for just £350,000 four years ago.

After a flat finish to the first half, Ipswich took just one minute to regain their lead following another lightning start.

Great work by Stephen Hunt inside the area was initially halted by Grant Hanley but the loose ball fell to Edwards who had time to emphatically pick his spot from close range.

They were now Ipswich’s points to lose but they almost shot themselves in the foot midway through the second half when Gerken dallied with the ball at his feet and his attempted clearance caught Rhodes in the face and trickled just wide.

Rhodes was the obvious dangerman but he was unable to direct Spurr’s teasing cross beyond Gerken minutes later.

While Blackburn shaded the chances in a largely uneventful second half, it was the home side who claimed the points with a calamitous third in the 86th minute.

Substitute Tyrone Mings’ punt upfield was made more in hope than expectation, but Nouble gave chase, somehow beating Kean to the ball as Dann left it to his goalkeeper, and rolled it into the empty net.

Individual errors again by the usual suspects, notably Kean and Kane. Bowyer should have got an experienced keeper in on loan and started playing Henley.

As for our away form, it's atrocious and has been for years. I really hoped Bowyer would have sorted it out this season but he seems clueless. I feel for the people who follow Rovers away from Ewood and have to pay to watch that garbage.

Wrong selection again GB! Jordan Rhodes is small, so too is diddy DJ, why loan a 6ft+ striker and leave him on the bench until the game is lost!! Taylor had his best game v Leeds and you drop him too? So much for the clean sheet challenge, lasted nearly 4mins before conceding. Please stop talking-up your expectations before games, your beginning to look foolish and you certainly aren't convincing anyone otherwise. A draw would have been realistic. It's QPR away next Gary, fancy clawing some credibility back with an away win? Keep your mouth shut and we'd be less disappointed...

On a serious note with no p1ss taking, what is Bowyer doing? He must know that some of the decisions he makes are pushing him closer to the job centre.

It's not like the Venkys are shy when it comes to revolving managerial door.

As everyone says too many individual errors, not Robbo's biggest fan, but the sooner he replaces Jake Kean the better. Kean looks to have lots of potential, but he's frightened of his own shadow. He's a huge lad, but he never attacks a cross or dominates his area, he's a liability.

Haven't seen Williamson, so hard to judge, but can you play Williamson and Lowe in the same side? Seems too negative when we lack creativity. Assume Dunny was injured again and perhaps Taylor as well, Surprised GB replaced Taylor in midfield with Williamson after an excellent performance on saturday.

Tonight's results show that there's no outstanding team in the league, Rovers biggest test so far on saturday at QPR, it will show if we have any remote chance of making the play-offs.

Realistically we are no better than an average Championship side with an inexperienced Manager. His loyalty to certain players is admirable but his inability to influence games by appropriate substitutions/team selections means a clean sheet away from home is REMOTE.

Venkys will make their decision but the quality of GBs signings has been poor and to trust him with more money in January is a very big big gamble.

The real supporters have sussed you out Gary no more" Keanesque statements" we are not good enough admit it and if you cant or dont know how to change it - do the honourable thing while you have your integrity intact.

THE dust had barely settled on Saturday’s rousing 1-0 win over Leeds United when Blackburn Rovers manager Gary Bowyer sat his players down in the dressing room and set them a challenge.

And that challenge is to keep a clean sheet away from home – starting at Ipswich Town tonight.

Totally agree it is difficult to understand the team selection tonight but certainly not what most of us would have wanted.

I disagree with your comment regarding the QPR game though, that alone is not the yardstick, it is how we handle the four games after that one, then we will have a better understanding of our season.

Useless performance Gary. Maybe you and your guys got cocky after Leeds win and thought Ipswich were there for the taking. Maybe you will select a better team for QPR and your boys will take it more serious now that the odds are stacked against us taking any points from there. Not sure Venky's can afford to let you learn your trade over a period of time now with all the debt etc. The pressure is now really on unfortunately

Sorry I made the trip, but only from Norwich. Very poor, why oh why do we keep lumping the ball from the back straight to the opposition. It is asking for trouble. We can play football so why don't we do it. Rhodes was good but alone, great take for his goal. defence was as wide open as it used to be under Kean. Goalkeeper very suspect tonight, rest him for Eastwood on Saturday. Josh King cannot get past a man at the moment and DJ was hardly seen. Taylor should have played, assume he was injured?? He was by far the best player on Saturday against Leeds.
It is hard to see how the two games could be so different, we could and should have taken Ipswich tonight, they were so open. Sorry this is not a promotion side, no guts and no skill away from home. Feel very sad tonight.

I agree, I'd lost confidence in robbo towards the end too, his kicking was nothing short of disgraceful. But Kean has got to be dropped, he's a liability week in week out the back four are terrified every time the ball hits the channel! Hopefully robbos time off has give him a taste for it again and he comes back hungry, on the flip side he could be first out the door due to his wages and Eastwood might get the nod? Either way Kean needs dropping, I personally thought he could have done better with all three today? Soft at best.

Tonight's results show that there's no outstanding team in the league, Rovers biggest test so far on saturday at QPR, it will show if we have any remote chance of making the play-offs.[/p][/quote]In kean's defence - he got us 2 points on saturday, was only strictly culpable for one goal tonight. Dont forget how poor Robbo was towards the end.[/p][/quote]I agree, I'd lost confidence in robbo towards the end too, his kicking was nothing short of disgraceful. But Kean has got to be dropped, he's a liability week in week out the back four are terrified every time the ball hits the channel! Hopefully robbos time off has give him a taste for it again and he comes back hungry, on the flip side he could be first out the door due to his wages and Eastwood might get the nod? Either way Kean needs dropping, I personally thought he could have done better with all three today? Soft at best. roversammo

This was one of the most naive and incompetent displays of defending that I can ever remember seeing from a Blackburn side (I first saw them in the days of Clayton and Douglas). All three goals were gifts, two at the start of each half the first from a poor defensive error and, most significantly, at the start of the second when opportunities to clear the ball were not taken. This was after the Rovers had got back into the game in the first half and so this goal gave the initiative back to Ipswich.The less said about the third goal the better.
I cannot believe that the two full backs who played tonight are better than Henley, I remember him performing heroics in Premiership matches.
Very few players emerged with any credit, except possibly Rhodes in the first half and Williamson who could at least sometimes pass a ball to someone on his own side. King was not great but he did make a very good chance in the first half and suggested he could provide a moment of creativity which was so lacking in the display. Why was he taken off? Cairney on the other wing had done very little.
A very disappointing performance, there were two poor sides with four goals all due to basic defensive errors but the difference being Ipswich made one basic mistake and the Rovers made three.

yes garbage and as for team GB - just not good enough with no consistency what so ever even with the so called 'challenge and time to move forward' set by GB - well they certainly stepped up to the mark with their usual performance of incompetency !!
Kean and Kane useless and reading the report and listening to commentary apart from maybe Rhodes a team of no hopers in respect of getting any where near the play off's - god help us in respect of the next game.

Without wanting to criticise GB, I think he is out of his depth. As a temporary manager OK but full time I think he has proved that he his not up it. There have been no real great performances this season just inconsistencies. A win one week a loss the next. Where do we go from here is anyone's guess

Until we find that consistency this sort of thing will continue to happen.

It's going to take longer than hoped to repair the damage done over the last three years. Unfortunately, it takes time and it will do so in this case, After what's happened since the arrival of Venkys stop expecting miracles.

So yes an average Championship side. ig improvement on what we have been the last couple of seasons.

Last nights game was a mere skirmish in the long war to sabilise the club and we only lost through silly mistakes (some the players and maybe one or two of the managers) but the manager and the team are still learniing and whilst we can still show good home form and win `big` games against teams like Leeds last saturday then we should come out of a season of change ok and in a safe mid table position or even a bit higher.

remember all those experienced managers names that were being touted to take over from Bowyer after his second temp spell in charge: Dave Jones, Owen Coyle, Ian Holloway, Sean O Driscoll, Dave Flitcroft, even Di Canio all been sacked by their respective clubs for not getting results. All failed in their jobs. I personally would not want any one of these in place of GB.

They may have experience in a managers role in football sure - but they would not have the b*lls or honesty or will to come and do the job here with all that this entails - the cash restrictions, the weird owners and the car-wreck scenario that Gary Bowyer is pulling us out of, as he stabilises the total devastation of the last couple of years.

Agreed FR. Short memories some of these posters.

Having said that, some team selection and subs decisions do seem strange and I think it’s fair to question them. But to propose that we need a new manager is crazy IMHO.

Not had a chance to post until now;

Watched the goals as the game unfolded on Sky, didn't we know the style of the manager we were playing against ffs? His teams only ever play one way.

Crap defensive errors yet again, it's simply not good enough and the last one, well, Kean has been struggling for weeks and that was simply a basic schoolboy error, totally unforgivable from a professional player.

Afraid a change needs to be made, for him as well as the club; he's too flaky and is making the defence jittery.

My heart goes out to the 300 or so fans who travelled all that way to watch that bilge, the club should refund all their expenses and make a public apology.

Nothing good came out of this game, absolutely nothing, wake up GB and sort it out.

Totally agree - there's hysteria when we win and likewise when we lose. As you say stability is they key and GB is doing the right things - yes he makes mistakes, so do lots of managers. Give him time and patience and lets support him and our team as they develop. Teams that stick with managers e.g. Leicester, dare I say Burnley (thankfully on the slide!) reap the rewards, teams that frequently change managers don't. For once! I think Venkys are doing the right thing sticking with Bowyer.

As for some of the other posts, I agree on the point that Kean needs to be dropped - however I imagine he will only lose his place if our back up is able enough - Eastwood is on the bench why not try him.

I am critical if last nights game (see above) but talking about the manager "doing the decent thing" etc is pure drivel.

And I am a real supporter so please don't attempt to speak for me thanks.

Have you forgotten the revolving door situation last season that made us an even bigger laughing stock than we were after Venky's took over?

Do you want a return to that?

Yes I am disappointed to say the least with last nights performance, especially after the way we played on Saturday, but if we sack the manager every time we have a bad performance we will probably end up with 20 managers a season, even Venky's aren't that bloody stupid.

How many away games have we won since Mark Hughes left?

And I am a real supporter so please don't attempt to speak for me thanks. Have you forgotten the revolving door situation last season that made us an even bigger laughing stock than we were after Venky's took over? Do you want a return to that? Yes I am disappointed to say the least with last nights performance, especially after the way we played on Saturday, but if we sack the manager every time we have a bad performance we will probably end up with 20 managers a season, even Venky's aren't that bloody stupid. How many away games have we won since Mark Hughes left? owd nick

Jockeying aside, I think we'll be closer in the table by the time of the derby - which will make it more the interesting seeing we're good for the points and should - neigh, WILL get our noses in front for the final hurdle.

Bowyer is surrounded by tools. That's the problem.
One of our main problems at Rovers is that there is no real quality and I don't mean just the playing staff. Both the Managing Director and the Manager, whilst I am sure they are genuine and hardworking, aren't up to the job. It's already looking like we ain't gonna make the play-offs.

The real supporters have sussed you out Gary no more" Keanesque statements" we are not good enough admit it and if you cant or dont know how to change it - do the honourable thing while you have your integrity intact.
eleven thumbs-up must all be from the mugs up the road as GB is doing a really good job at the club. Despite losing disappointingly to an average Ipswich side we didnt lose any ground in the table and we live to fight another day. So yes an average Championship side. ig improvement on what we have been the last couple of seasons.

Last nights game was a mere skirmish in the long war to sabilise the club and we only lost through silly mistakes (some the players and maybe one or two of the managers) but the manager and the team are still learniing and whilst we can still show good home form and win `big` games against teams like Leeds last saturday then we should come out of a season of change ok and in a safe mid table position or even a bit higher.

remember all those experienced managers names that were being touted to take over from Bowyer after his second temp spell in charge: Dave Jones, Owen Coyle, Ian Holloway, Sean O Driscoll, Dave Flitcroft, even Di Canio all been sacked by their respective clubs for not getting results. All failed in their jobs. I personally would not want any one of these in place of GB.

They may have experience in a managers role in football sure - but they would not have the b*lls or honesty or will to come and do the job here with all that this entails - the cash restrictions, the weird owners and the car-wreck scenario that Gary Bowyer is pulling us out of, as he stabilises the total devastation of the last couple of years.
For me GB stand for: Gary Bowyer/Good Bloke
so GB is a good bloke, well thats ok then lets leave him to it , he may be a good bloke unfortunatly hes not a good MANAGER. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So would you sack him benal? We need stability whilst Venkys own the club. If he were to get sacked who would you realistically prefer? There's not a SINGLE experienced available manager that would work for Venkys and I'd guarantee another manager change (unless it was Fergie, Mourinho, Guardiola lol) would result in a relegation scrap and more carnage.

Basically it all boils down to the fact that whilst Venkys own the club we're up sh*t creak without a paddle.

In my opinion the short term solution is looking forward to Rochinas return who'll hopefully bringing some creativity and Robbo putting some much needed pressure on Kean, who has been looking capable of dropping a clanger for few months.

I've always found in life if you ignore the in-breds they eventually get bored and run away........ just like a famous boxing day.

His position definitely isn't stable.

In the mane if say Ipswich won at a canter.
Why do you persist in trotting out these lame puns ?
He won't be here furlong.
I think he's trying to stirrup trouble, but he needs to rein himself in a bit, pride comes before a foal.
He's got the bit between his teeth now but we won't see him after the Derby.
Jockeying aside, I think we'll be closer in the table by the time of the derby - which will make it more the interesting seeing we're good for the points and should - neigh, WILL get our noses in front for the final hurdle.

Goalkeeper very suspect tonight, rest him for Eastwood on Saturday. Josh King cannot get past a man at the moment and DJ was hardly seen. Taylor should have played, assume he was injured?? He was by far the best player on Saturday against Leeds. It is hard to see how the two games could be so different, we could and should have taken Ipswich tonight, they were so open. Sorry this is not a promotion side, no guts and no skill away from home. Feel very sad tonight.
If we are going to lump the ball you would have thought we would have played a 6ft 4 striker not Dj campbell. Think Bowyer is on borrowed time. We seem to of reached a level that is midtable and cannot make the next level.

Venkys will make their decision but the quality of GBs signings has been poor and to trust him with more money in January is a very big big gamble.

The real supporters have sussed you out Gary no more" Keanesque statements" we are not good enough admit it and if you cant or dont know how to change it - do the honourable thing while you have your integrity intact.
eleven thumbs-up must all be from the mugs up the road as GB is doing a really good job at the club. Despite losing disappointingly to an average Ipswich side we didnt lose any ground in the table and we live to fight another day. So yes an average Championship side. ig improvement on what we have been the last couple of seasons.

Last nights game was a mere skirmish in the long war to sabilise the club and we only lost through silly mistakes (some the players and maybe one or two of the managers) but the manager and the team are still learniing and whilst we can still show good home form and win `big` games against teams like Leeds last saturday then we should come out of a season of change ok and in a safe mid table position or even a bit higher.

remember all those experienced managers names that were being touted to take over from Bowyer after his second temp spell in charge: Dave Jones, Owen Coyle, Ian Holloway, Sean O Driscoll, Dave Flitcroft, even Di Canio all been sacked by their respective clubs for not getting results. All failed in their jobs. I personally would not want any one of these in place of GB.

They may have experience in a managers role in football sure - but they would not have the b*lls or honesty or will to come and do the job here with all that this entails - the cash restrictions, the weird owners and the car-wreck scenario that Gary Bowyer is pulling us out of, as he stabilises the total devastation of the last couple of years.
For me GB stand for: Gary Bowyer/Good Bloke
so GB is a good bloke, well thats ok then lets leave him to it , he may be a good bloke unfortunatly hes not a good MANAGER. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
he is definitely the best one that we are going to get mate...even despite all the exclamation thingies!!!!!!!

I think management of a club is basically down to how good the players are the manager brings in. Look at Coyle and Holloway they are both out of work but how can an owner be blamed for appointing them when they have both got teams promoted?
I personally always wanted Rovers to appoint Glen Hoddle especially when Sam was sacked, he plays good football as long as his players can cope with the passing. The manager can organise the team,coach them,motivate them but at the end of the day if he has no idea how to bring in a bargain quality player the results will suffer.
Mark Hughes was a miracle worker at Rovers he attracted Nelson,Santa Cruz,Benni McCarthy,Samba and Bentley what a deal millions of pounds worth of talent for less than 10 million quid.I thought he was our best ever manager but look at him lately struggling with every club he has been at.The choice of manager is very difficult.
