Paul Wheelock column: Dropped points so frustrating

This Is Lancashire: Gary Bowyer Gary Bowyer

ROVERS have been in winning positions in 10 of the 16 Championship games they have played in 2014.

And how many did they go on to win? Exactly half – five.

They dropped two points at home to Brighton and Hove Albion, away to Watford, away to Barnsley and at home to Derby County, and three points, most painfully, in the East Lancashire derby with Burnley at Ewood Park – with all the equalising goals coming in the closing stages of matches.

That’s 11 points in total – and what a difference even five or six of those points would have made.

Yes, Rovers have had rotten luck with injuries and penalty decisions going against them since the turn of the New Year.

But looking at those statistics it would seem a soft underbelly in the latter stages of games provides the best explanation as to why the play-off places are fast disappearing into distance with seven matches of the campaign to play.

Have Rovers ever been good enough to finish in the top six?

Probably not but it’s not like their rivals for sixth place – Bournemouth, of late, aside – have been pulling up any trees in the past three months.

After Tuesday’s 3-3 draw with Brighton, some Rovers supporters took to social media to describe the season as one of underachievement.

Harsh? I think so given it was only 12 months ago that their side was staring a second relegation in the face.

But there is no question if Rovers fail to make the play-offs – and let’s face it, only the most optimistic of fans now feel it remains a possibility – it will have to go down as an opportunity missed.

For the simple fact that no-one seems to want the final top six spot.

Yes, 13 goals scored in the last five games is proof positive that Rovers are now willing and able to fight fire with fire with opponents home and away.

But they have conceded 11 goals over the same period of time – or more, damningly, 18 in their last eight matches – and they simply must marry the defensive solidity they were showing earlier in the campaign with the attacking intent they have begun to display.

If they can, and they can continue to show the same sort of spirit and resilience that they have displayed for the majority of this season, then it bodes well, particularly for next season.

That’s all well and good.

But ultimately we shouldn’t be talking next season, not just yet.

It's been an up and down season for us and just a little more consistency or two more wins would have made it an exciting end to the season.
We haven't "pulled up any trees" either, but those two more wins would have made a huge difference.
I've said it several times before, it's been a poor Championship this year and the fancied teams haven't been able to step up to the mark. Qpr, Reading, Derby and Forest have had poor seasons and not delivered. Two more wins and we would have been right up there even after our mediocre season.

On another matter I have just watched the TV report of D J Campbell being re arrested for spot fixing. My skin is still crawling. I feel as though slugs and cockroaches are battling for the title of Supreme Creepy crawly at the World Skin Crawling Championships.
Throughout his miserable, mediocre career, this despicable low life slimeball has been paid sums of money that honest, decent, hardworking fans could only dream of. But this is not enough for DJ. This greedy, filthy disgusting waste of skin felt the need to cheat in order to supplement his ill gotten gains. ( allegedly) If there is any justice in the world, this fetid, festering turd of a man will be banged up in prison sharing a cell with a pair of twenty stone, sweaty , rampant homosexual Turks who just happen to have a thing about slimy, ugly little weasel faced syphylloids. I do not like him and wish him a long depressing down spiral into bankruptcy and all manner of painful sexually transmitted diseases.

I think the main issue has simply been consistency, inability to string a few wins together, too many games where we performed really well but for just one half, yes we have struggled to see games out, but we also showed we could fight to the end and score injury time goals.
An incredible turnover of players, some necessary and by choice, but too many through injury, has meant it's been difficult to establish a settled team and shape.
This division has plenty of teams who are fit, organised and motivated and there have been too many occasions where that has been enough to earn a win or a draw against players who were not 100 % because they were new to the team, returning from injury, or playing out of position.
If we can get our team playing at 90 or 100%, not 60 or 70%, we can do well in this division.

Not sure how someone who constantly criticises every aspect of the club can refer to Rovers as "we", but then there really is no logic in anything we read from Dave.

He's clearly gutted that we weren't relegated again last season, and after an average mid table season where we have completely overhauled the squad, getting rid of most of the high earners from the Steve Kean era he has even less to moan about.
Will have a guess now and say we wont hear much from him next season!
