Blackburn Rovers 'must not lose' against Reading, says Matt Kilgallon

First published in Sport

MATT Kilgallon says Blackburn Rovers’ match at Reading on Saturday is a ‘must not lose’ if Gary Bowyer’s side are to make the play-offs this season.

Rovers travel to the Madejski Stadium at the weekend to face the side who currently sit sixth in the Championship table.

Reading – one of the favrouties for promotion at the start of the season – stand seven points ahead of Rovers after an impressive win at QPR on Sunday, although they have played a game more.

Kilgallon still believes Rovers can make the top six but knows defeat at Reading would be a major blow to their hopes.

“Reading are one of the teams we need to keep up with,” said the centre back.

“They’re going to be there or thereabouts and they’ve always been a threat in the Championship, every season.

“They’ve got some good players there, they’ve put a few wins together.

“They were having a bad time of it but then they put a few wins on the bounce and they’ve put themselves in the driving seat again.

“We’ve got to go there and try and pick something up.”

Rovers sit 10th in the table after consecutive clean sheets against Blackpool and Middlesbrough.

Kilgallon hopes more shut-outs can boost their play-off aims.

“It’s massive to get a clean sheet – that’s what we’re paid to do,” he said.

“We’ve being playing a different formation recently where there has been Robbo (Paul Robinson), the back four and Willo (Lee Williamson) or Lowey (Jason Lowe) defending and letting all the other lads to go and win the game for us.

“That’s fine for us. We know defending that and clean sheets are massive for us.”

Rovers have sold more than 600 tickets for Saturday’s match, against a Reading team who will have centre back Kaspars Gorkss available after a successful appeal against his red card at QPR.

Bryan Dabo scored twice as Rovers under 21s’ loast 4-2 at Aston Villa on Monday night.

Corry Evans completed 74 minutes as he continues his comeback from injury. Both could be in the squad for the Reading game.

A draw isn't really good enough either, as it would mean that we need to go on a strong run in the games remaining. I don't think we are capable of winning consecutive games, maybe back to back wins, but not 3 or 4+ wins on the bounce.

As anybody else noticed how close to Burnley the surrounding teams are. The second spot is a four horse race. And to think as recently as xmas our friends down the road thought that they were odds on for a top two spot. It looks to me that Burnley and QPR are flagging and the momentum is with Forest and Derby. By the time we win next month Burnley will be in a playoff spot. And falling like a stone.

Talk about stating the obvious Matt and if your going to do it get it right, I would like to hear, we need to go out and win from now on if we are going to reach the play offs, it's a long shot, we have nothing to lose, next year will be our year this squad at the moment is not quite good enough, don't get me wrong I'd still go up if we managed to do it (just for the money) but let's finish the season of positively, attack because we are not as good when we sit back.

Just had to beat the troll.

I don't think a point will be enough, that will keep them 7 ahead and when you take into account that both Wigan and Watford are starting to click into gear it's getting pretty congested in the top half.

Again I'm not too bothered if we don't get to the play offs this season but it would be nice to keep the interest going right up to the end.

I don't see it as any other way for you than go for the win and throw the kitchen sink at them. There's nothing really to lose and all to play for - a win would be a great springboard on to better things - a draw or loss really will just confirm the season is over. Good luck to you.

Sort of agree with you Nick. I would like to get to the playoffs for the excitement, but I don't think if we got to the playoffs we could win it this year (maybe next year). In saying that though how many times has the sixth placed team gone on to win?

On current form my top three this year looks like Leicester, Derby and QPR to win the playoffs, sorry Burnley.

Tough game for us at the weekend - but definitely `winnable` if GB plays an attacking formation from the start. We have people like Rhodes, Cairney and Gestede who can really hurt Reading - plus our defence is probably as sound as its been all season. Maybe time to blood Dabo as a sub?

Reading are on a mini-revival but one that will only last to saturday! They seem to score most of their goals from set pieces/headers so we need to keep the foul count down and be positive and go for the jugular. 2-0 to the Rovers!

Just hope Bowyer doesn't do a Kidd and play for a draw when we need to win (I'm talking about the man utd game when we got relegated).

It is no good trying to contain Reading as this wastes precious time. Just be brave and play a sensible attacking game i.e. get the ball forward quickly, commit men to attack without leaving huge gaps to be exploited by a Reading counter-attack. I'd go 4-4-2

After our draw with QPR we were 13 points behind Leicester.

We have since closed the gap to 7 points.

QPR have taken 1 point in 9.

Derby have had a good run but have yet to suffer a bad patch, which they will, they also have some tough games to come including trips to Turf Moor and Reading.

Forest play Leicester next then us at Turf Moor.

Your comments are pathetic and highlight just how scared you are of our success. It's not long since we were 3rd and three points behind QPR, we are now 4 points and 9 goals ahead of them. We are the form team along with Derby in that top group and given that we spanked Derby 3-0 away, I believe we are the strongest team in that top group.

Unlike your sorry shambles of a club, languishing down in 10th and watching your mid-table rivals climb above you.

Poor old jealous, mid-table, Blackburn Rovers.

I don't remember when you were top of the league seeing Derby and Forest right up your backside. Well they are now. When you LOSE the Lancashire derby the four of you will be more or less on terms and it will be a four horse race for the last automatic place.

I'm beginning to admire your determination not to face the fact that automatic promotion will soon be out of your hands, and you will be relying on the other three teams to slip up. Hardly likely they will all lose form, is it?

Forest and Derby have impressed me most since xmas, and QPR have the strongest and biggest squad on paper. Don't fancy your chances much, in this four horse race.

Do you want to come to our Burnley not going up party in May? Everyone of you is invited as our guest of honour.

Sort of agree with you Nick. I would like to get to the playoffs for the excitement, but I don't think if we got to the playoffs we could win it this year (maybe next year). In saying that though how many times has the sixth placed team gone on to win?

On current form my top three this year looks like Leicester, Derby and QPR to win the playoffs, sorry Burnley.
I said at the start of the season it would be Leicester, QPR and Wigan and they are all now in strong positions to make their claim.
Derby are a very capable side but do have inconsistencies, whereas Forest are currently 13 unbeaten in the league so must be looked at as a major possibility for promotion, especially given Billy Davies record at this level.
One thing is for certain, what Burnley have achieved so far this season should be applauded by all as it gives hope to smaller clubs looking to achieve great things, without that we might as well all pack up and not bother and be armchair fans of sky sports. Obviously I hope they achieve promotion but it will be difficult as we have far less resources than our competitors. One thing for certain, we fear no one in this league.

With regards to your play off hopes....... Posted a few weeks ago that you needed a run of 5 wins on the bounce at some point which is now looking highly unlikely. Reading and Wigan looking strong and Watford also as someone mentioned for that final spot.

The major concern for Saturday is that we don't ever seem to be able to beat top 6 teams away from home. In fact, I'm not sure if we've beaten a top 6 six team away from home since we got relegated from the Prem.

If we lose on Saturday, then we it will take a major turnaround in performances for us to have any chance of the play-offs. Not impossible but highly unlikely.

And to think as recently as xmas our friends down the road thought that they were odds on for a top two spot. It looks to me that Burnley and QPR are flagging and the momentum is with Forest and Derby. By the time we win next month Burnley will be in a playoff spot. And falling like a stone.
After our draw with QPR we were 13 points behind Leicester.

We have since closed the gap to 7 points.

QPR have taken 1 point in 9.

Derby have had a good run but have yet to suffer a bad patch, which they will, they also have some tough games to come including trips to Turf Moor and Reading.

Forest play Leicester next then us at Turf Moor.

Your comments are pathetic and highlight just how scared you are of our success. It's not long since we were 3rd and three points behind QPR, we are now 4 points and 9 goals ahead of them. We are the form team along with Derby in that top group and given that we spanked Derby 3-0 away, I believe we are the strongest team in that top group.

Unlike your sorry shambles of a club, languishing down in 10th and watching your mid-table rivals climb above you.

Poor old jealous, mid-table, Blackburn Rovers.

Score prediction: Reading 3 - 0 Blackburn Rovers
No point predicting we will lose EVERY week. You might gain some sort of credibility if you gave an honest opinion.

Having said that its difficult to have a credible opinion if you never actually go to a game.

Back to the story. It does look like a "must win" rather than a "can't lose". We must set up to win the game rather than play defensively and try to steal it. If this results in a loss so be it. Should probably look to give Varney and/or Conway a start as full debuts often serve up better than usual performances.

Success? You've won nothing yet! Seems like you're too busy counting your chickens.

When you've won major trophies and competed in Europe you can start crowing - like we did for so long.

Even your own fans have written off automatic promotion as only 11000 can be bothered turning up when you are in second. They must know the writing is on the wall and two wins over two teams with the worst form in the division will not paper oer the cracks. Back to normal with a draw against Bournemouth. Now watch the freefall.

I don't remember when you were top of the league seeing Derby and Forest right up your backside. Well they are now. When you LOSE the Lancashire derby the four of you will be more or less on terms and it will be a four horse race for the last automatic place.

I'm beginning to admire your determination not to face the fact that automatic promotion will soon be out of your hands, and you will be relying on the other three teams to slip up. Hardly likely they will all lose form, is it?

Forest and Derby have impressed me most since xmas, and QPR have the strongest and biggest squad on paper. Don't fancy your chances much, in this four horse race.

Do you want to come to our Burnley not going up party in May? Everyone of you is invited as our guest of honour.
I was wrong the other day when I said you couldn't be more jealous of us.

The desperation has now reached a new low with the no-dad's. You couldn't make this nonsense up. They are so very bitter and upset that we are in 2nd spot and clear of the play-offs.

The flip-side of your poor argument is that should we beat you at Ewood those 3 points could well be the points that see us automatically promoted. Could you live with yourself knowing that Blackburn Rovers played their part in our glorious promotion? I can't wait to turn you turds over at Ewood and silence your whining once and for all.

What hurts you the most is that you mugs have been saying the same thing since last September. Yes it really is that long. For 5 long months you have been hoping, dreaming and praying for us to slip up.

We have slipped to 3rd place three times and bounced right back up into the automatic positions. We have fallen 3 points behind QPR and now we are 4 points ahead of them, we were 13 points behind Leicester buit we have now cut that gap to only 7 points. We have taken 4 points from QPR and beaten Derby away 3-0, but most importantly, and what makes you morons really squirm, is that we have games to come against Nottingham Forest, Derby and Leicester all at fortress Turf Moor.

We have proven time and time again that we are the real deal this season, that's why you have been crying inside for 5 months.

ps. I will likewise invite you to our promotion party, how does that sound?

As anybody else noticed how close to Burnley the surrounding teams are. The second spot is a four horse race.

It looks to me that Burnley and QPR are flagging and the momentum is with Forest and Derby. By the time we win next month Burnley will be in a playoff spot. And falling like a stone.
After our draw with QPR we were 13 points behind Leicester.

We have since closed the gap to 7 points.

QPR have taken 1 point in 9.

Derby have had a good run but have yet to suffer a bad patch, which they will, they also have some tough games to come including trips to Turf Moor and Reading.

Forest play Leicester next then us at Turf Moor.

Your comments are pathetic and highlight just how scared you are of our success. It's not long since we were 3rd and three points behind QPR, we are now 4 points and 9 goals ahead of them. We are the form team along with Derby in that top group and given that we spanked Derby 3-0 away, I believe we are the strongest team in that top group.

Unlike your sorry shambles of a club, languishing down in 10th and watching your mid-table rivals climb above you.

Success? You've won nothing yet! Seems like you're too busy counting your chickens.

When you've won major trophies and competed in Europe you can start crowing - like we did for so long.
We have done you moron.

We've won the English top division league title twice and reached the European Cup Quarter Final.

Even your own fans have written off automatic promotion as only 11000 can be bothered turning up when you are in second. They must know the writing is on the wall and two wins over two teams with the worst form in the division will not paper oer the cracks. Back to normal with a draw against Bournemouth. Now watch the freefall.
17 points Mungo, I bet you can't explain that can you.

You are being dominated by the Clarets once again.

"We must not loose" typical of the whole approach GB has adopted all season his mentality is to defend first and attack if we get the opportunity. Therefore we seldom put teams under the cosh Hence the reason we are not in the play off frame.. Yes we are playing two up front at the moment but they are usually too deep or isolated. I think GB has assembled a team good enough to win promotion but his tactics he employs will not allow us to take full advantage of this. He will have to change next year if he wants to win promotion because I think he has wasted an oportunity this season.

I don't remember when you were top of the league seeing Derby and Forest right up your backside. Well they are now. When you LOSE the Lancashire derby the four of you will be more or less on terms and it will be a four horse race for the last automatic place.

As anybody else noticed how close to Burnley the surrounding teams are. The second spot is a four horse race.

It looks to me that Burnley and QPR are flagging and the momentum is with Forest and Derby. By the time we win next month Burnley will be in a playoff spot. And falling like a stone.
After our draw with QPR we were 13 points behind Leicester.

We have since closed the gap to 7 points.

QPR have taken 1 point in 9.

Derby have had a good run but have yet to suffer a bad patch, which they will, they also have some tough games to come including trips to Turf Moor and Reading.

Forest play Leicester next then us at Turf Moor.

Your comments are pathetic and highlight just how scared you are of our success. It's not long since we were 3rd and three points behind QPR, we are now 4 points and 9 goals ahead of them. We are the form team along with Derby in that top group and given that we spanked Derby 3-0 away, I believe we are the strongest team in that top group.

Unlike your sorry shambles of a club, languishing down in 10th and watching your mid-table rivals climb above you.

Poor old jealous, mid-table, Blackburn Rovers.

Score prediction: Reading 3 - 0 Blackburn Rovers
"Your comments are pathetic and highlight just how scared you are of our success."


Success? You've won nothing yet! Seems like you're too busy counting your chickens.

When you've won major trophies and competed in Europe you can start crowing - like we did for so long.
We have done you moron.

We've won the English top division league title twice and reached the European Cup Quarter Final.

Care to tell us all how far Blackburn Rovers have gone in Europe?

No I thought not... Wind your neck in you fool.
Did you get a trophy for Europe? Does it read 8th best team in Europe 1961 on it? were you alive in 1961. it must be hard not to have seen any of this world domination
Mega
Have Blackburn Rovers ever reached the European Cup Quarter Final?

Well have they?

I don't remember when you were top of the league seeing Derby and Forest right up your backside. Well they are now. When you LOSE the Lancashire derby the four of you will be more or less on terms and it will be a four horse race for the last automatic place.

I'm beginning to admire your determination not to face the fact that automatic promotion will soon be out of your hands, and you will be relying on the other three teams to slip up. Hardly likely they will all lose form, is it?

Forest and Derby have impressed me most since xmas, and QPR have the strongest and biggest squad on paper. Don't fancy your chances much, in this four horse race.

Do you want to come to our Burnley not going up party in May? Everyone of you is invited as our guest of honour.
It was out of our hands when QPR went second.

You hope
You're still in the mix McClaret and full credit to you for it, but as every week goes by my hope turns more and more to belief. Within a couple of weeks or so I will be absolutely certain. I also think you are one injury away from complete utter collapse - lose Ings and for sure your season is all but over.
Fair comment adcr, it has been like that for us all season and yes we have to hope he stays fit, as QPR did with Austin - o sorry they went and got 3 more players! All Arry does it throw money at any questions raised and he is not galvanising his team or dressing room which is what has given others a chance (IMO). They should have walked this league with the strength and quality they have and to many they look like they are having a day in the sun and he is struggling to cope with it.
Next 2 games will go a long way towards determining our season, even 2 draws would not be the worst and I would snap your hand off for 4 points.

Nothing but 3 points required for your lads on Sat?

Even your own fans have written off automatic promotion as only 11000 can be bothered turning up when you are in second. They must know the writing is on the wall and two wins over two teams with the worst form in the division will not paper oer the cracks. Back to normal with a draw against Bournemouth. Now watch the freefall.
17 points Mungo, I bet you can't explain that can you.

You are being dominated by the Clarets once again.
Have you tried E harmony? there must be another spaz out there just for you, what about SUBO?
SUBO eh.

If only you were as good looking as SUBO, you monstrous, flea-infested, cross-eyed, rampaging cocksmooch.

Anyhow I have a question... do you still love nature, despite what it did to you?

On the subject of football however, how does it feel now that your play-off dream is over for another year? Is this the end for Bowyer?

As anybody else noticed how close to Burnley the surrounding teams are. The second spot is a four horse race. And to think as recently as xmas our friends down the road thought that they were odds on for a top two spot. It looks to me that Burnley and QPR are flagging and the momentum is with Forest and Derby. By the time we win next month Burnley will be in a playoff spot. And falling like a stone.
After our draw with QPR we were 13 points behind Leicester.

We have since closed the gap to 7 points.

QPR have taken 1 point in 9.

Derby have had a good run but have yet to suffer a bad patch, which they will, they also have some tough games to come including trips to Turf Moor and Reading.

Forest play Leicester next then us at Turf Moor.

Your comments are pathetic and highlight just how scared you are of our success. It's not long since we were 3rd and three points behind QPR, we are now 4 points and 9 goals ahead of them. We are the form team along with Derby in that top group and given that we spanked Derby 3-0 away, I believe we are the strongest team in that top group.

Unlike your sorry shambles of a club, languishing down in 10th and watching your mid-table rivals climb above you.

Poor old jealous, mid-table, Blackburn Rovers.

Score prediction: Reading 3 - 0 Blackburn Rovers
Even your own fans have written off automatic promotion as only 11000 can be bothered turning up when you are in second. They must know the writing is on the wall and two wins over two teams with the worst form in the division will not paper oer the cracks. Back to normal with a draw against Bournemouth. Now watch the freefall.
17 points Mungo, I bet you can't explain that can you.

You are being dominated by the Clarets once again.

Interesting that on this ROVERS thread, 95% of the posts are related to whether or not BURNLEY will achieve automatic promotion. Yet on saturday Rovers have without doubt the biggest and possibly last meaningful game of their season. A win and they will be in with a chance of the play offs but defeat will condemn them to another season in The Chumpionship. Given the dire financial straits of the club it is unthinkable but a defeat at Reading will put them 10 points adrift of 6th place. And yet the `fans` are only concerned if Derby or Forest can oust Burnley from 2nd place. Yes that is 2nd place a full 17 points clear of Rovers who can only clutch at a jack straw for some form of comfort. Well sorry to say and I know the truth hurts but.............Jack Straw is done.........Rovers are done.......Burnley are superior. Keep praying guys, its all you have left.

Even I , as an eternal optimist can now see that we have zero chance of the playoffs. We are simply not good enough under Bowyer.
Reading are on fire and a defeat will simply confirm that we are destined to finish mid table this season. Its no comfort that its an improvement on last year. Compare us to 3/4 years ago. Shocking destruction by Venkys.
I have been consistent in my views that the corrupt snakes that are Venkys are too arrogant, trapped in their own medieval country to appoint a real manager with an opinion. They want, and have appointed a series of wannabes and liars. Bowyer nice guy yada yada yada. He just isn't up to it. We are going nowhere under him.

Absolutely right. Your club is simply treading water with a no-mark like Bowyer in charge. Look at how competitive this league is, and think of the teams being relegated from the Premier League this season and the now £60 million parachute payments they will receive to assist them in bouncing back at the first opportunity. Contrast this with your own dire financial state, the need to cut costs resulting in the loss of Rhodes and any other player of value over the summer, and then your impending transfer embargo, preventing you from strengthening while all around you can.

The sign's are very grim for Blackburn Rovers and a mid-table finish would be flattering for a team as weak as yours. If anything you should be clearing the decks now ready for a proper rebuilding job and bringing in a manager who has something about him, goodness knows Gary "The Maths teacher" Bowyer isn't up to the job.

Bowyer clearly hasn't got the stuff needed to motivate your team of journeymen mercenaries. How about giving (former) fan-favourite Colin Hendry a shot at the managers job? I don't think he could do much worse.

You need man management skills to succeed in this division, however I get the feeling your current manager couldn't manage a good poo, never mind a football team. Mid-table and unlikely to improve in the future.

Just a thought.

I don't think a point will be enough, that will keep them 7 ahead and when you take into account that both Wigan and Watford are starting to click into gear it's getting pretty congested in the top half.

Again I'm not too bothered if we don't get to the play offs this season but it would be nice to keep the interest going right up to the end.
Sort of agree with you Nick. I would like to get to the playoffs for the excitement, but I don't think if we got to the playoffs we could win it this year (maybe next year). In saying that though how many times has the sixth placed team gone on to win?

On current form my top three this year looks like Leicester, Derby and QPR to win the playoffs, sorry Burnley.
I said at the start of the season it would be Leicester, QPR and Wigan and they are all now in strong positions to make their claim.
Derby are a very capable side but do have inconsistencies, whereas Forest are currently 13 unbeaten in the league so must be looked at as a major possibility for promotion, especially given Billy Davies record at this level.
One thing is for certain, what Burnley have achieved so far this season should be applauded by all as it gives hope to smaller clubs looking to achieve great things, without that we might as well all pack up and not bother and be armchair fans of sky sports. Obviously I hope they achieve promotion but it will be difficult as we have far less resources than our competitors. One thing for certain, we fear no one in this league.

With regards to your play off hopes....... Posted a few weeks ago that you needed a run of 5 wins on the bounce at some point which is now looking highly unlikely. Reading and Wigan looking strong and Watford also as someone mentioned for that final spot.
Totally agree with you. Too much for us to do now. And as for you lot, if you weren't our rivals I would be wishing you on, as I never in a million years thought that you could get so close to going up this year. You could still go up, but even though your form is quite good, the other teams seem to be creeping up on you.

After our draw with QPR we were 13 points behind Leicester.

We have since closed the gap to 7 points.

QPR have taken 1 point in 9.

Derby have had a good run but have yet to suffer a bad patch, which they will, they also have some tough games to come including trips to Turf Moor and Reading.

Forest play Leicester next then us at Turf Moor.

Your comments are pathetic and highlight just how scared you are of our success. It's not long since we were 3rd and three points behind QPR, we are now 4 points and 9 goals ahead of them. We are the form team along with Derby in that top group and given that we spanked Derby 3-0 away, I believe we are the strongest team in that top group.

Unlike your sorry shambles of a club, languishing down in 10th and watching your mid-table rivals climb above you.

I don't remember when you were top of the league seeing Derby and Forest right up your backside. Well they are now. When you LOSE the Lancashire derby the four of you will be more or less on terms and it will be a four horse race for the last automatic place.

I'm beginning to admire your determination not to face the fact that automatic promotion will soon be out of your hands, and you will be relying on the other three teams to slip up. Hardly likely they will all lose form, is it?

Forest and Derby have impressed me most since xmas, and QPR have the strongest and biggest squad on paper. Don't fancy your chances much, in this four horse race.

Do you want to come to our Burnley not going up party in May? Everyone of you is invited as our guest of honour.

I'm beginning to admire your determination not to face the fact that automatic promotion will soon be out of your hands, and you will be relying on the other three teams to slip up. Hardly likely they will all lose form, is it? Forest and Derby have impressed me most since xmas, and QPR have the strongest and biggest squad on paper. Don't fancy your chances much, in this four horse race. Do you want to come to our Burnley not going up party in May? Everyone of you is invited as our guest of honour.[/p][/quote]Forest and Derby have impressed you? Have you been going to their matches? tall in the saddle

If we lose on Saturday, then we it will take a major turnaround in performances for us to have any chance of the play-offs. Not impossible but highly unlikely.

As anybody else noticed how close to Burnley the surrounding teams are. The second spot is a four horse race.

It's quite a realistic prediction.

Certainly more realistic that those fools on here who sincerely believe Blackburn Rovers are still in contention for the play-off's.

Looking at the quality of each team, Burnley are good enough to go up. Blackburn are good enough for mid-table.

Absolutely right. Your club is simply treading water with a no-mark like Bowyer in charge. Look at how competitive this league is, and think of the teams being relegated from the Premier League this season and the now £60 million parachute payments they will receive to assist them in bouncing back at the first opportunity. Contrast this with your own dire financial state, the need to cut costs resulting in the loss of Rhodes and any other player of value over the summer, and then your impending transfer embargo, preventing you from strengthening while all around you can.

The sign's are very grim for Blackburn Rovers and a mid-table finish would be flattering for a team as weak as yours. If anything you should be clearing the decks now ready for a proper rebuilding job and bringing in a manager who has something about him, goodness knows Gary "The Maths teacher" Bowyer isn't up to the job.

After our draw with QPR we were 13 points behind Leicester.

We have since closed the gap to 7 points.

QPR have taken 1 point in 9.

Derby have had a good run but have yet to suffer a bad patch, which they will, they also have some tough games to come including trips to Turf Moor and Reading.

Forest play Leicester next then us at Turf Moor.

Your comments are pathetic and highlight just how scared you are of our success. It's not long since we were 3rd and three points behind QPR, we are now 4 points and 9 goals ahead of them. We are the form team along with Derby in that top group and given that we spanked Derby 3-0 away, I believe we are the strongest team in that top group.

Unlike your sorry shambles of a club, languishing down in 10th and watching your mid-table rivals climb above you.

Poor old jealous, mid-table, Blackburn Rovers.

Gary Bowyer has been shipping out the overpaid deadwood all season and rebuilding with young British players from the lower leagues.

The team need time to grow together. Play off's and the likely failure would do nothing for their confidence. Promotion would mean the team being dismantled and yet again of over paid prem has Belen's being brought in to try and stay up. Leading to likely relegation and putting us back to where we were.

For the first time in my life I don't want promotion, different kettle of fish next season though.

As for the Knuckle dragging hill troll's down the road?? So what?? They're having a better season than us and they've gotten all giddy. Good luck to em. Who cares??

Reading are on a mini-revival but one that will only last to saturday! They seem to score most of their goals from set pieces/headers so we need to keep the foul count down and be positive and go for the jugular. 2-0 to the Rovers!

He needs to play to win from the off, and stop making excuses! I fear after Saturday our season will effectively be over.

Sort of agree with you Nick. I would like to get to the playoffs for the excitement, but I don't think if we got to the playoffs we could win it this year (maybe next year). In saying that though how many times has the sixth placed team gone on to win?

On current form my top three this year looks like Leicester, Derby and QPR to win the playoffs, sorry Burnley.
For me it's Leicester and Derby to go up.

I honestly don't think it will be QPR in the play offs, they simply aren't good enough (as a team) and they have lost Austin for the rest of the season.

If Burnley can continue to ride their luck and stay injury free they could be in with a serious chance, Forest took a big hit last night but I believe the eventual play off winners will come from teams currently outside the play offs, notably Wigan, who have kept a decent squad together and have a really good manager or Watford.

My money would be on Wigan.

I have been consistent in my views that the corrupt snakes that are Venkys are too arrogant, trapped in their own medieval country to appoint a real manager with an opinion. They want, and have appointed a series of wannabes and liars. Bowyer nice guy yada yada yada. He just isn't up to it. We are going nowhere under him.
Absolutely right. Your club is simply treading water with a no-mark like Bowyer in charge. Look at how competitive this league is, and think of the teams being relegated from the Premier League this season and the now £60 million parachute payments they will receive to assist them in bouncing back at the first opportunity. Contrast this with your own dire financial state, the need to cut costs resulting in the loss of Rhodes and any other player of value over the summer, and then your impending transfer embargo, preventing you from strengthening while all around you can.

The sign's are very grim for Blackburn Rovers and a mid-table finish would be flattering for a team as weak as yours. If anything you should be clearing the decks now ready for a proper rebuilding job and bringing in a manager who has something about him, goodness knows Gary "The Maths teacher" Bowyer isn't up to the job.

But we cant because he so obviously is...
Come on Baldric, this is the equivalent to a 3 year old hiding behind the curtains to say boo
Childish? Too right
Must do better.
Listen mate. Just because I don't think bowyer is the right manager doesn't mean I an a dingle Trojan horse. I am a season ticket holder in the blackburn end and have a four hour round trip. I question whether anyone who actually attends matches can think he is right? I am sick and tired of the team being ran by no marks that's all. Just because he is apparently nice bloke doesn't wash with me.
