Gary Bowyer: More to come from prolific Blackburn Rovers strikers Jordan Rhodes and Rudy Gestede

BLACKBURN Rovers boss Gary Bowyer has warned Championship defences – you might shackle one of my feared frontman but just try stopping the other.

Jordan Rhodes and Rudy Gestede go into tonight’s clash at Norwich City on the back of a sensational scoring run.

MORE TOP STORIES:

The deadly duo have shared 17 goals between them in their last 12 starts alongside each other.

Gestede, a £200,000 bargain buy from Cardiff in January, has weighed in with 11 of those goals with his double strike on Saturday sealing the 2-1 success at Blackpool.

After inspiring Rovers’ first win of the season the towering targetman admitted the attention opposition defences give to his predatory strike-partner Rhodes – who was hardly given a kick by his former Huddersfield Town team-mate Peter Clarke – is allowing him to flourish.

And Bowyer, a defender in his playing days, said: “There’s more to come from Rudy and Jordan as a partnership.

“I read before Saturday’s game that Peter Clarke knew how to shackle and stop Jordan from scoring. “He did that but then we had Rudy.

“They are a really dangerous pair. As a centre back I wouldn’t know which one I would want to mark – I’d probably go and play full back!”

Gestede’s brace against Blackpool took his tally for Rovers up to an impressive 15 in 31 appearances.

Rhodes’ record is even better. He has scored an incredible 53 goals in 98 games since becoming the club’s record £8m signing from Huddersfield in August 2012.

The prolific striker was linked with a summer move to this evening’s opponents Norwich before he signed a new five-year contract with Rovers in July.

At the time of the speculation Neil Adams denied that the Canaries had made a bid for Rhodes.

But yesterday he stated his admiration for the former Ipswich Town youngster.

Norwich boss Adams said: “I know his dad, Andy, very well, I obviously played with his dad at Oldham, and he’s followed Andy around when he was a kid at Ipswich and has moved on.

“What you know with Jordan Rhodes is he scores goals, plain and simple, wherever he plays, he scores goals by the bucketful season in, season out, and that’s why he had such a high price when he moved to Blackburn.

“And I think they’ve just offered him another contract because the price of somebody in the modern game who can bang in 25 goals a season, that’s why people covet them and obviously why Blackburn would want to keep him.”

Adams’ squad includes two former Rovers players, Martin Olsson and Mark Bunn. However neither will feature tonight.

Bunn, who has been linked with a return to Rovers, has slipped to third-choice goalkeeper while Olsson was last night hit with an immediate three-match ban after he was charged with improper conduct by the FA for making physical contact with referee Simon Hooper prior to his sending off in the Canaries’ opening day 1-0 defeat at Wolves.

Up until 5pm yesterday Adams thought he would be able to include Olsson in his plans.

Norwich, meanwhile, are believed to be close to signing Spanish defender Carlos Cuellar.

The 32-year-old spent time training with Rovers in the summer following his release from Sunderland.

Have to say I'm not feeling at all confident ahead of tonight's game, I get this horrible feeling we're going to be on the end of a bad one. We can keep building up our front players but when we have such a weak defence and zero backup its only a matter of time before the floodgates open.

Defeat tonight leaves us with a mountain to climb given that we've got Eddie Howe's rampant Bournemouth up next.

Bowyer just try and concentrate on building a defence that will flow confidence right through the team and let the strikers do what they get paid to do and it will click all into place it's as simple as that

Hi all, first time poster here...

With Rhodes and Gestede up front I think we will score in most games this season, our main problem in my opinion is conceding soft sloppy goals.
I am sure GB and his team however are trying their upmost to solve this issue.

Let's just take each game at a time and see what happens. It's good to have a pair of to top strikers at the club and we must make sure we keep them. Gsetede will soon come under the spotlight if he carry's on like this. Just need to get some additional defensive cover and we should be fine. Let's hope we can get a result tonight.

Welcome to these pages Dorset Blue....the more decent posters on here the better. Have you always been a Roverite?

If you have been following this blog then you will already know it is occasionally infested with sly and sneaky clarets (and Dangerous Dave) pretending to post as Rovers fans, but they usually get sussed quickly and get ignored or banned. Right now they are probably having nervous breakdowns after seeing what a half-paced Chelsea side did to them last night. They have some real hidings to come based on that game, as the rest of the Prem wont be as benevolent as Chelsea were.

I must admit that your chosen `nom de plume` sounds a bit like a rare breed of hen though!

Hi French Rover,

Yes, I have always been a Roverite, I am Blackburn born and bred and had previously been a regular season ticket holder up until a year ago when I moved down south.
Have you moved to France?

I must admit I did watch the game last night (out of devilment) as I was hoping for a bigger score line!
The gulf between the two sides was there for all to see.

I have been reading the threads for a week or so to try and keep in touch the best I can with whats going on up there.
I am going to go to the Bournemouth away match and try to get to a home match when I visit family. It is a pity Yeovil got relegated last time out as I went there last year too.

I am not too well up on hen breeds but if thats the case then it is quite fitting I must say.

Thought I would check to see if you lads can remember where your own pages are given the amount of Rovers comments on the Burnley side of things.
A top front two is something that can fire you all the way, look at Vokes and Ings last season.

Frenchie - You mention Chelsea above. I wouldn't want to play many teams that finish above them, then again how many do you think will? If they play like they did first half they will tear shreds off most teams in the PL, even those in their own mini league at the top end. Is it worth parking the bus in an attempt to get a point or should you try and have a go? Yes I would love my team to be able to compete with the likes of Chelsea but in reality how many PL clubs have a midfield that can live with Hazard, Fabregas, Matic and Schurrle?
I was pleased they took their foot off in the second half, I think we all know they could have got more if they had wanted. On the other side of things I am not judging our season on a game against Chelsea. There are players in our team that are below the prem mark, it will all be about how they perform against the teams in the bottom ten that will ultimately decide our season.

Enough about Burnley, you have other important things to concentrate on such as your match at Norwich tonight. Start of the season is often a good time to play relegated teams, would think you are hopeful of a positive result.

Moved to France almost seven years ago DB, but spent this summer back here on the south coast. I was up at Blackpool on Saturday and hope to get back to some home games and some matches down here this season including Bournemouth, Brighton and most of the London games. Maybe see you at one of these...

Fair comments McClaret. Yes Chelsea will be up there but they missed a good opportunity to rack up a few goals last night and that lax attitude wont win them the Prem. A team like Man City or Arsenal or even Liverpool would have been much more ruthless in those circumstances. But to be fair you had a decent go at a very good side packed with stars, and you could have had a second goal actually then that would have been interesting.

For what its worth I reckon Costa was rubbish, falling all over the place and moaning every time he got touched, Danny Ings on the other hhand battled away all match and was miles better than Costa! Good luck anyway Claret - you are really going to need it. We will give you a wee wave when we pass you on our way up at the end of the season.

fine margins up in the PL - Chelsea had 3 shots on target to Burnley's 2. Costa had 1 shot on target and so did Ings......Chelsea will win more games than they will lose this season but for Burnley it will be the other way round. Chances will be scare but got to be taken when they come.

Bowyer just try and concentrate on building a defence that will flow confidence right through the team and let the strikers do what they get paid to do and it will click all into place it's as simple as that
To be fair to the lads they defended very well on Saturday. Granted, Blackpool's goal shouldn't have happened, but other than that one mishap the defence looked quite comfortable on the whole, especially when they were put under the cosh in the second half. Lowe looked assured at right-back, Baptiste was a rock and Olsson is starting to play a bit more like his brother. We obviously need more quality in depth, Keane would be ideal, but when we've still got, arguably, our two best defenders to come back in things don't look as dire as they did last season. It's just a shame that we're already being forced to chop and change our first choice back four due to injury.

A tough game tonight, I'd take a point if you offered it to me now but I dare say Rhodes will want open his account for the season and Rudy's on fire so we could be leaving with all three!

Dewch Ar Chi Gleision!

Don't be a silly Billy, unlike the ground at Blackpool Norwich has a much bigger pitch which will suit Rovers fine - with you being such a dedicated Rovers fan you should know this already.

Enough about Burnley, you have other important things to concentrate on such as your match at Norwich tonight. Start of the season is often a good time to play relegated teams, would think you are hopeful of a positive result.
Fair comments McClaret. Yes Chelsea will be up there but they missed a good opportunity to rack up a few goals last night and that lax attitude wont win them the Prem. A team like Man City or Arsenal or even Liverpool would have been much more ruthless in those circumstances. But to be fair you had a decent go at a very good side packed with stars, and you could have had a second goal actually then that would have been interesting.

For what its worth I reckon Costa was rubbish, falling all over the place and moaning every time he got touched, Danny Ings on the other hhand battled away all match and was miles better than Costa! Good luck anyway Claret - you are really going to need it. We will give you a wee wave when we pass you on our way up at the end of the season.
fine margins up in the PL - Chelsea had 3 shots on target to Burnley's 2. Costa had 1 shot on target and so did Ings......Chelsea will win more games than they will lose this season but for Burnley it will be the other way round. Chances will be scare but got to be taken when they come.
Fine margins indeed, didn't you notice Chelsea declared at half time, you were beaten by an innings and two goals.

Yes I would love my team to be able to compete with the likes of Chelsea but in reality how many PL clubs have a midfield that can live with Hazard, Fabregas, Matic and Schurrle?
I was pleased they took their foot off in the second half, I think we all know they could have got more if they had wanted. On the other side of things I am not judging our season on a game against Chelsea. There are players in our team that are below the prem mark, it will all be about how they perform against the teams in the bottom ten that will ultimately decide our season.

Enough about Burnley, you have other important things to concentrate on such as your match at Norwich tonight. Start of the season is often a good time to play relegated teams, would think you are hopeful of a positive result.
Fair comments McClaret. Yes Chelsea will be up there but they missed a good opportunity to rack up a few goals last night and that lax attitude wont win them the Prem. A team like Man City or Arsenal or even Liverpool would have been much more ruthless in those circumstances. But to be fair you had a decent go at a very good side packed with stars, and you could have had a second goal actually then that would have been interesting.

For what its worth I reckon Costa was rubbish, falling all over the place and moaning every time he got touched, Danny Ings on the other hhand battled away all match and was miles better than Costa! Good luck anyway Claret - you are really going to need it. We will give you a wee wave when we pass you on our way up at the end of the season.
fine margins up in the PL - Chelsea had 3 shots on target to Burnley's 2. Costa had 1 shot on target and so did Ings......Chelsea will win more games than they will lose this season but for Burnley it will be the other way round. Chances will be scare but got to be taken when they come.
Fine margins indeed, didn't you notice Chelsea declared at half time, you were beaten by an innings and two goals.
Chelsea were afraid of letting Burnley get a 2nd so they shut up shop - great respect for a team of no hopers - They should have gone for the 4th which would have killed them off but that's the measure of this Premier League Burnley team.....
"Chelsea were afraid" ....... Really ?

Back to the point... Yes we need an extra defender, ideally a centre half that can also play Right Back.
Michael Keane is not going to come back to Rovers though, please accept this, and stop thinking you are a genius for suggesting it.
The lad has a chance of making it at Man Utd as a Centre Half and he has already played two seasons on loan at three different Championship clubs on loan.
At Rovers he would be third choice centre half and first choice right back, unless we want to lose Kilgallon, which we cant afford to do.
Neither he not Louis Van Gall is going to want him to come to Rovers if we cannot guarantee him a start at CENTRE HALF in every game. Other clubs will offer him that. Its likely that he could even get offered that by a Premier League club, so for his own development, he has to go to a top level club that can offer him a centre half role until the end of the season. Thats not us.

Hey McC, you really can't blame us for having a go after all the drivel we have to put up with on here can you!

On a more positive note I said to one of your real fans on your match report that the fixture computer could have been kinder to you in the first few games, and Arfield's goal was a cracker.

Luckily for you under Mourinho Chelsea are often more than happy to sit on a lead, had it been City, Liverpool or Arsenal it would have been a lot worse, they are far more ruthless than Chelsea, I thought that lack of a ruthless streak cost Chelsea the title last season.

Hope you enjoyed the game...I did!

Banana skin game for us tonight, with our defensive frailties I suspect we will have to score a couple ourselves to get a draw or better but I am looking forward to it and a bit of proper banter later on.

If I had a bit more time, and free cash we would have gone tonight, thanks to my daughter I have got the away game bug again.

Welcome to these pages Dorset Blue....the more decent posters on here the better. Have you always been a Roverite? If you have been following this blog then you will already know it is occasionally infested with sly and sneaky clarets (and Dangerous Dave) pretending to post as Rovers fans, but they usually get sussed quickly and get ignored or banned. Right now they are probably having nervous breakdowns after seeing what a half-paced Chelsea side did to them last night. They have some real hidings to come based on that game, as the rest of the Prem wont be as benevolent as Chelsea were.

Hi French Rover,

Yes, I have always been a Roverite, I am Blackburn born and bred and had previously been a regular season ticket holder up until a year ago when I moved down south.
Have you moved to France?

I must admit I did watch the game last night (out of devilment) as I was hoping for a bigger score line!
The gulf between the two sides was there for all to see.

I have been reading the threads for a week or so to try and keep in touch the best I can with whats going on up there.
I am going to go to the Bournemouth away match and try to get to a home match when I visit family. It is a pity Yeovil got relegated last time out as I went there last year too.

I am not too well up on hen breeds but if thats the case then it is quite fitting I must say.
You note how french rover calls the burnley fans and teams for rubbish posts yet he seems to be just like then? Idiot!
