BOWYER: "We're hugely disappointed to have lost. I thought it was harsh, but in football it is fine margins. Jordan Rhodes goes through one on one and hits the post. We are disappointed with the two goals we have conceded.

"My criticism of the side is that we have conceded two goals and the manner of the two goals.

"They [Burnley] are second in the league - you think they will get automatic promotion. That is what comes from having a settled squad like they do. It is something we have been working to and working very hard.

"My lads have to keep going. We have go again. People will probably write us off, but that is not the right thing to do. It is important we finish as strongly as we possibly can."

2:51pm

Bowyer: "I thought it was harsh. We got ourselves into a good position and the big moment comes when Jordan is through and if that goes in the back of the net it is 2-0.

"Goals change games and chances change games. Jordan has hit the post and then they get the goal.

"We are disappointed with the manner of the two goals. The group is hurting in there. We are deeply disappointed.

On the play off push: “It’s going to take a big effort but we’ve got plenty of points to play for. We’ve got to regroup and recover and get going again.”

Dyche: "I thought the lads delivered a fine performance

"Credit to Blackburn they made life very difficult as they would in a big game like this one.

I said to the lads at half time: ‘Lads, we’re on the cusp of making history don’t worry about being 1-0 down.’

"I am absolutely delighted for the fans because they’ve waited a long time for this moment. The fans have been terrific for us all season.

On Jason Shackell’s goal: “He’s as brave as a chicken there and he’s just shut his eyes and it’s gone in but he’s top class.”

"It is only significant because it’s another three points. We’ve got another big game coming on Wednesday I have said enjoy this evening make sure you rest easy and make sure you recover.

"The players need to stay calm and focussed as they are doing."

Well Done Burnley. You finally did it. I hope you go up and do well. But you'll only ever become better than Rovers if you can stop us from beating you for the next 35 years. But you've made a start! Enjoy! Some of you will have never felt like this ever before in your life, so savour the moment and try to keep the depression and feelings of inferiority at bay. Just for a few hours today you now know how Rovers fans feel most of the time.
