Bowyer hails 'magnificent' Blackburn Rovers

This Is Lancashire: Gary Bowyer Gary Bowyer

BLACKBURN Rovers boss Gary Bowyer hailed his side as ‘magnificent’ after they completed a quickfire Championship double over Leeds United to revive their play-off bid.

Rovers moved up to 10th and within two points of the top six as a result of their second victory over Roses rivals Leeds in the space of four-and-a-half weeks.

The 2-1 triumph at Elland Road, secured by first-half goals by top scorer Jordan Rhodes and on-loan Cardiff City striker Rudy Gestede, also ensured Rovers bounced back from their battling 3-2 home loss to Birmingham City on Sunday.

“I think we continued where we left off against Birmingham,” said Bowyer, whose team were 1-0 winners over Leeds at Ewood Park on November 30.

“Bar from the silly mistakes in that game I thought we were fantastic, especially in the second half.

“So we came here – which is not a nice place to come, a tough place where the Leeds fans are notorious for the noise they make – and our young team and players stood up magnificently.

“We were outstanding in the first half and should have been out of sight.

“We scored two goals, had one cleared off the line and had a certain penalty turned down – we controlled the game.”

Bowyer, whose 4-3-3 formation paid off handsomely, was loathe to single out individual players for praise.

But he was particularly impressed by the performance of Ben Marshall.

The winger played at right-back in place of Adam Henley who, after playing five matches in 21 days after nine months out injured, was rested.

It is a position Marshall has played before but Bowyer was taken aback by just how well his summer signing, who is in the best form of his short Rovers’ career, adapted to the role.

“I didn’t think Ben would be as outstanding as he was at right-back,” said Bowyer.

“We knew he could do it but we didn’t think he could be as good as that. He was outstanding.”

The match marked Gestede’s and Tom Cairney’s final appearances for Rovers before their loan deals from Cardiff and Hull City respectively run out today.

But Bowyer remains hopeful he will complete permanent transfers for both players before Saturday’s visit of Manchester City to Ewood for a mouth-watering FA Cup third-round tie.

Bowyer also needs to trim the club’s wage bill in this month’s transfer window.

And his efforts to do that continued yesterday when striker Jordan Slew signed for Scottish Premier League outfit Ross County on loan until the end of the season.

Defender Anthony O’Connor, meanwhile, will remain on loan at Torquay United until the end of the season.

I'm always one of the first to criticize the performance when i feel it's needed but I'm always prepared to admit i was wrong..

i predicted a defeat at Leeds but despite that we made to trip to Elland Road...and i can only heap praise on the way we played...the formation left Leeds wondering how to deal with us and that was good to see.

as a norm we get teams coming here and changing their formation to stop us but well done GB....you did your home work.

i only have one criticism and that was firmly at the door of the officials....how on earth can the Ref get away with so many blatant mistakes??? surely the FA or someone needs to have a word.

a new year!.....a new start!....who knows but it's looking good, lets hope we can build on this instead of having a good win then going back to the inconsistent form of late.....

That would be a great bit of business by Bowyer and a far cry from the transfer sagas under previous recent managers (an invasion of Portuguese kids springs to mind). Things are improving no doubt about it, even though some idiots on here are still trying to convince us otherwise for some odd reason!?

Good honest post, keep the faith, there going to lose more matches but you can see something is happening at Ewood that's special.
Young team. Young manager who believes in young players and can get the most out of them,let's get behind them in good times and the odd bad one, the Dingles are there to be caught, I can't see them getting automatic promotion so it's us against them in the play off final, can't wait.

A much more positive team selection and performance. That's the way to go in this division as, apart from Derby and more recently Leicester, no-one has shown much consistency and taken the league by storm.
Playing more adventurously I think we can give anyone a game in this league. We just need the confidence to take teams on like yesterday. Hopefully this result will give them confidence to push on in the second half of the season.

Apart from the odd performance things have improved and if we can sign Cariney and keep him in the middle in place of Lowe then we can carry on moving up the league. Also be better when Evans returns which should be soon. Keep the attacking formations and we should have nobody to fear in this league.

as a norm we get teams coming here and changing their formation to stop us but well done GB....you did your home work.

i only have one criticism and that was firmly at the door of the officials....how on earth can the Ref get away with so many blatant mistakes??? surely the FA or someone needs to have a word.

a new year!.....a new start!....who knows but it's looking good, lets hope we can build on this instead of having a good win then going back to the inconsistent form of late.....
I agree with other posters in that I was not looking forward to Leeds away.

The different formation with Cairney back in a more central role, coupled with a desire to go looking for the first goal worked wonders and I hope that GB will now continue being positive, especially at home.

Apart from Leicester, there is nothing between the rest of the teams I have seen this season.

I just hope that a quick deal to sign Cairney can be done as we cannot afford to miss out on him.

Good honest post, keep the faith, there going to lose more matches but you can see something is happening at Ewood that's special.
Young team. Young manager who believes in young players and can get the most out of them,let's get behind them in good times and the odd bad one, the Dingles are there to be caught, I can't see them getting automatic promotion so it's us against them in the play off final, can't wait.
Oh something special is happening at Ewood alright.

56 million in debt, 3 million loss a month and an impending transfer embargo. Not to mention Rhodes going to Hull.

Special times ahead at a special "once proud" football club !
Latest is that Ings is on his way to Hull, be less than a third of the price of Rhodes. Let's face it, the dingles gave Charlie Austin away and look at him now at QPR. If Hull want a bargain dingley Dell is the place oh the thought of getting £2 or 3 million in those greasy six fingered hands, Arfur Daleys car lot is where those dingle directors will be heading.
