ROVERS recorded their first home win of the season after they survived a late fightback from a Bournemouth team who looked dead and buried at the break.

Gary Bowyer’s side, watched by members of the Rao family, of owners Venky's, for the second home game running, were three goals to the good at half-time.

Jordan Rhodes, fresh from being given the news that Venky’s would not sanction his sale to Hull City, opened the scoring before skipper Grant Hanley and Rudy Gestede gave Rovers what appeared to be an unassailable lead.

But the Cherries, who were the last team to leave Ewood Park with three points way back on March 12, set up a nail-biting finish after Brett Pitman – from a ridiculously awarded penalty – and Steve Cook netted in the final nine minutes of normal time.

But Rovers held on to move up to 10th, with seven points from their opening four matches of the campaign, in the early Championship standings.

Bournemouth, clearly confident after winning two of their opening three league games, enjoyed 77% of the possession in the first 10 minutes.

But, apart from a Junior Stanislas 20-yard drive that Paul Robinson gathered at the second attempt with Callum Wilson ready to pounce, they were unable to do anything with it.

And Rovers, who kept to their shape impressively in the opening period, made them a pay with a stunning three-goal 11-minute salvo kick started by – who else ? – Rhodes on his 100th appearance for the club.

There appeared little on when the prolific striker chased down a ball down the right flank, But Rhodes made something out of nothing by dispossessing the dithering Cook inside his own box before sliding a cool left-footed shot through the legs of Lee Camp and into the back of the net.

It was the Scotland international’s first goal of the season and, incredibly, his 54th for Rovers following his club record £8m move from Huddersfield Town two years ago.

Former Burnley winger Stanislas threatened a 20th-minute equaliser when he sent a first-time effort straight down the throat of Robinson after Hanley had challenged Wilson.

But a minute later Rovers doubled their advantage as Tom Cairney swung over a corner from the left for Hanley to steer a firm header toward the top corner that Cherries goalkeeper Camp could only help on its way into the net.

Like his Scotland team-mate Rhodes, it was the centre back’s first goal of the campaign.

But Gestede is now up to three for the term after he extended Rovers’ advantage three minutes later.

Not that he knew much about it as Craig Conway’s 25-yard daisy cutter – after another Cairney corner had only been half cleared – deflected off the big forward’s leg and wrong-footed Camp.

It was Gestede’s 12th goal in his last 12 starts.

And he could have had another in the 28th minute as he headed inches wide with Camp beaten.

Then it was the turn of Rhodes to go desperately close as he collected a cutback into the area from man of the match Markus Olsson and lashed the ball left footed against the post.

Camp then palmed away a stinging drive from Ben Marshall – the only change to the Rovers team which started the controversial and agonising loss at Norwich City in midweek – as Rovers appeared capable of scoring every time they surged forward.

But Bournemouth, who were unchanged from the side which started their undeserved midweek defeat to Nottingham Forest, survived until the break, before emerging after it a much more dangerous proposition.

Firstly, after Cairney failed to clear after a Stanislas free kick had hit the wall, Robinson made a truly breathtaking save to turn Yann Kermorgant’s 18-yard left-footed curler on to the bar.

The former England number one, who made an even better stop against Norwich, then denied Stanislas and Wilson, the latter after a sharp one-two with Kermorgant.

But slowly but surely Rovers worked their way back into the contest and Alex Baptiste really should have got in on the act in the 69th minute as he headed over a Cairney corner after escaping his marker.

So it came against the run of play when the Cherries were given a glimmer of hope by referee Geoff Eltringham, who inexplicably pointed to the spot after he adjudged Baptiste to have tripped Adam Smith in the box when he the right back had clearly dived.

Substitute Pitman did the rest from the spot as he sent Robinson the wrong way.

Josh King should have settled any lingering nerves after excellent approach play from Craig Conway, the Rovers sub blazing over from 12 yards.

And it could have proved a costly miss as, after Gestede had a goal chalked off for offside, Cook headed home a Charlie Daniels corner in the 90th minute.

The woeful Eltringham indicated there would be four minutes of injury time.

But he ended up playing five and a half and only a brilliant block from Baptiste denied Bournemouth an equaliser.

Well that was interesting, Bournemouths midfield didn't give us a kick for ten minutes, fortunately their forwards have no finishing ability and soon Jordan did what Jordan does and exploited a hesitant defence and dodgy keeper. After that Rovers quickly stepped up a gear, made excellent use of two wide men and went in 3-0 up and looking confident attacking a very shaky defence.

Second half Bournemouth got organised, rallied again and with nothing to lose really gave it a go. Rovers seemed set to try to see the game out rather than battle for more goals but faltered courtesy of another dodgy penalty decision. Fortunately Bournemouths front men couldn't get them over the line and what should have been about 4-0 ended up a fair 3-2.

Could have given the MOM to most of the team today, and couldn't fault Bowyers starting eleven, a good solid job certainly first half, and while we probably didn't press them back enough in the second I think the substitutions were probably right too, we took the three points and that is what mattered.

After all the hysteria we might see a few more comments about football tonight, it's been a very bad day for Dave and the Dingles.

why do we change our style when we are winning? we was 3-0 up and really going for it could have been 4 at half time then 2nd half we stop going for it and keep sitting back and when we get the ball and run it into corners then give the ball away. but a win is a win i just wish that when we are winning and playing well we dont try time waste too much especially when there is still half an hour left

Just made it over the line - another 5 minutes and I think we may have struggled.
Starting eleven ok - need to put more oresuuure on the balll when we dont have it too easy in second half for Bournemouth to control the game.
Substitutions by GB were ineffective Dunn & King . Thank goodness Robbo showed class or it really could have been embarrassing.
Take the 3 points and move on but GB really needs to learn quickly if Rovers are to challenge at the top of this league - is he the man?

The usual story since Scott Dann left, we have a pitifully weak defence, pitifully open and letting in lots of goals. We do not have any decent central defenders to partner Grant Hanley and Paul Robinson looks like an extra from who ate all the pies. We need to make it a priority to get a decent central defender, possibly even two decent central defenders, because the amount of goals we are conceeding means we will not be promoted. We saw this at the end of last season, how many games thrown away because of letting in 1 or 2 goals every game? Lots of points thrown away and it will be the same this season unless Bowyer makes his case with the Venkys to get in a decent central defender. A good win, but I do not want us to be a championship team, I want us to be premier league again soon. WAKE UP BOWYER, WE HAVE A POOR DEFENCE!!!

No I don't think GB is. The second half we sat back - as ever we knew what was coming - and another 5 mins and we'd have seen a draw or worse. He is so negative; we should be crushing sides when 3 - 0 up rather than sit back and try to defend it. The players aren't good enough to do that especially against a footballing side like Bournemouth. I'd like to see a change at the top - Tim Sherwood for me - but it won't happen.

How can you say he is negative when we were 3-0 up? Is it him or the players that are sitting back? You don't know so why assume it is Bowyer.

If we cannot keep a clean sheet at home to likes Of Bournmouth, with all all due respect, when 3-0 up, then its clear we have no chance of ever challenging in this league for promotion. That 3-2 displays all we need to know about our defence, and proves nothing has changed since last season. Another 10th place finish this season unless Bowyer pulls his finger out swallows an honesty pill and gets a central defender worth the name, also drop that fat bug*** Robbo from GK.

IExcellent news on all fronts and three points to boot!
For extra defensive cover I would still go for Alex Bruce as he is obviously surplus to requirements at Hull. He is a very decent defender with excellent prem and championship experience who would certainly strengthen the side. Some fans say he didn't make the grade when he was at the Rovers as a young las but he was a key player in the Rovers youth team that won the Prem U21 cup in the one season he was with us in the academy.

In general it fair to say we need to improve at the back but your comments are not a reflection of today's game, which I'm assuming you didn't go to, Baptiste played very well, Hanley and Lowe did a good job and Ollson got the MOM.

I'm not exactly sure what we need to do..... But I do know we aren't good enough to protect leads!! It concerns me as we concede more goals in the last 10 mins than any other team, it can't be lack of fitness?? Surely it's a mental aspect?

Yep mate- I am just frustrated that the issue with the defence has still not been fixed, it was clear with our undefeated run at the end of last season that our defence was not good enough and it has not been addressed this season. Thats the frustrating thing, we are still leaking goals for fun, and regardless of the performance or bad luck, the true reflection is in the goals against column.

We let in 2 goals against Norwich in the last 5 minutes at 1-1, which was not protecting a lead. The defence is just poor, its not just about protecting a lead. The evidence from the end of last seaon after Dann left, shows we just concede lots of goals, especially late in the game. We need a quality replacement, another two goals conceded late on is simply unacceptable.

Good perormance first half but we need to stop giving goals away late on or we will make it more difficult for ourselves than need be and will throw points away like last season.

But why are the goals always conceded so late,I always feel as each minute ticks by we defend deeper, the midfield defend on the pen box and defenders on 6 yard line!!! No wonder we concede so many penalties!! I agree 100 percent we haven't replaced dann

Gary Bower said on sky sports interview that the Jordan Rhodes saga is not over giving the impression that he would like some of the funds for his team. He said until the window closes it's not over as though he was inviting other bids. He should be putting his foot down and saying he is not for sale since the owners have already said he is not for sale instead of anchoring for higher bids. Not Happy with GB'S comments.

3-0 after 24minutes and we just scraped a win ?

Will GB be blaming the referee ?

GB takes off JR - within minutes Bournmouth score twice - explain ?

We gained 3 points by the skin of our teeth - did we really deserve them ?

Nice to see Burnley lose though . Yes they are totally out of their depth ,
still , makes them quite a few quid . We might do the same next year , if only someone could whisper "defence" in GB's ear .

Captain Dreckley says...

Fantastic first half after the first 10 mins. Midfield dominated and the front men were on fire with excellent supply from the wings. What's happened to Marcus? Winger reborn. The difference between the halves was sloppyness none in the first half but in the second you wouldn't think we were the same team. I cannot for the life of me understand why GB replaced Rhodes with king. 3-0 up but Bournemouth having a real go so what we need is a holding midfield player like Williamson. This really smacks of last season where we dominated a game, get in front then end up hanging on. To his credit GB has assembled some real talent as we saw in the first half however in the second he showed he is as tactically inept as Kean. This is a team that can win promotion but not with GB at the helm

4 of the last 5 goals have had nothing to do with bad defending by the back four, you can spend tens of millions on defenders, they will still make mistakes because everybody does.

Said it many times on these pages we let in goals, especially late in games because we don't keep the ball well enough and don't defend as a team. I would think that GB is just as frustrated by it as the rest of us.

There are interesting points being made about the defensive qualities of the team. Nobody has mentioned the fact that there is an opposition! Once they go behind they have nothing to lose but to press forward. I have always been a big advocate of, the best form of defence is attack. The opposition cannot score if the ball is in their half. We have probably the best forward line and wingers in the division. Football is a simple game, down the wings, cross to centre, forward player, back of net. Just don't let the opposition have the ball.

Robinson was excellent today and looks like he is getting his fitness back.

The game was a great advert for the Championship.

What a difference a win makes. Positive discussion, actual debate on the football. Virtually troll free. Long may it continue. Let's get that transfer window shut. Then total concentration on the football. We may have a better idea on the team progress in a month or so. There appears to be teams this season that can win lose or draw against any other team. The Rovers just have to make sure that the togetherness they seem to have is maintained and there is no reason why they can't compete against any team in the division. Plus even the Venky's seem to be getting in on the act. Attending games and putting out positive statements.

How can you say he is negative when we were 3-0 up? Is it him or the players that are sitting back? You don't know so why assume it is Bowyer.
When it happens repeatedly its quite obvious where it comes from. Nd if thr players are.over ruling him then its another equally bad problem.

GB takes off JR - within minutes Bournmouth score twice - explain ?

We gained 3 points by the skin of our teeth - did we really deserve them ?

Nice to see Burnley lose though . Yes they are totally out of their depth ,
still , makes them quite a few quid . We might do the same next year , if only someone could whisper "defence" in GB's ear .
If Burnley are totally out of their depth, and remembering they gained automatic promotion, along the way trouncing you in that dump of a ground, what chance have you got?
I mean, its been years since you beat Burnley now hasn't it?
How many? Now scuttle off like you did at fleewood when we embarrassed you
You beat us 2-1 not exactly 'trouncing' us is it. In the championship as you well know anyone can beat anyone. You had a top season last season granted, but lets be honest here you are out of your depth in the premier league. You have a good set of players at the moment, a set that work really really well with each who can defend well and can score goals but as it stands not at premier league level.

This is an honest assessment of your team and honestly come January you may lose a couple players who do well at that level (as we would in the same position) and a team your size will only go one way and that's down. It's not a dig at you because you're Burnley, its a fact. If we went up and Rhodes was still with us the same would probably happen. You needed to strengthen your team in this window which you haven't done and you will bear the consequences unfortunately.

We need Michael Keane back on a season long loan. I thought everyone played well today. Well impressed with Ollson, Tommy might not get his place back! A couple of chances to put the game to bed but again nearly let the lead slip. So frustrating! But happy with three points. Forest look the team to beat. Bring it on!

Nice to see Burnley lose though . Yes they are totally out of their depth ,
still , makes them quite a few quid . We might do the same next year , if only someone could whisper "defence" in GB's ear .
If Burnley are totally out of their depth, and remembering they gained automatic promotion, along the way trouncing you in that dump of a ground, what chance have you got?
I mean, its been years since you beat Burnley now hasn't it?
How many? Now scuttle off like you did at fleewood when we embarrassed you
Please explain what it is about our ground that is a 'dump'? It's a modern stadium, fit for the purpose with good facilities. So why do you believe it's a dump?

If he does blame the ref,he'll be spot on.
The ref,and only the ref,gave them a sniff of a chance with a ridiculous decision.
Rhodes was fairly anonymous when he went off,and I didn't hear one dissenting voice.
Yes,we deserved the 3 points,but only after a nervy ending.
I don't really know how you can open your comment with 3 such negative comments,and then say that you weren't even there.

Well that was interesting, Bournemouths midfield didn't give us a kick for ten minutes, fortunately their forwards have no finishing ability and soon Jordan did what Jordan does and exploited a hesitant defence and dodgy keeper. After that Rovers quickly stepped up a gear, made excellent use of two wide men and went in 3-0 up and looking confident attacking a very shaky defence.

Second half Bournemouth got organised, rallied again and with nothing to lose really gave it a go. Rovers seemed set to try to see the game out rather than battle for more goals but faltered courtesy of another dodgy penalty decision. Fortunately Bournemouths front men couldn't get them over the line and what should have been about 4-0 ended up a fair 3-2.

Could have given the MOM to most of the team today, and couldn't fault Bowyers starting eleven, a good solid job certainly first half, and while we probably didn't press them back enough in the second I think the substitutions were probably right too, we took the three points and that is what mattered.

After all the hysteria we might see a few more comments about football tonight, it's been a very bad day for Dave and the Dingles.
Mostly agree with what you say but I was very dissapointed with the second half performance.

Bournemouth looked great when Rovers allowed them to, tippy tappy football and good movement belied the fact that when Rovers upped the ante their defence dissolved and we were three up, literally in the blink of an eye.

So why sit back and allow them to play the way they wanted?

We nearly gifted them a point when we should have buried them with 5 or more goals, goal difference could easily play a part in the final outcome this season.

I really do support GB in what he is trying to achieve but his tactical naivety can really frustrate, if he wanted to sit on the lead, fine, but he needed to bring on a defensive midfielder in front of the back four, who were horribly exposed at times.

Overall pleased with the three points, well deserved on the first half performance but "could do better" for the second half.

Oh dear, our worst fears confirmed....


"Jordan Rhodes could be sold as Blackburn boss Gary Bowyer heads for crunch talks with owners to generate transfer funds. Manager Gary Bowyer needs funds to strengthen his squad, and Steve Bruce is keen to replace Shane Long, who moved to Southampton.

Blackburn Rovers manager Gary Bowyer has travelled to India for a crunch meeting with owners Venky's after they rejected Hull City's bid of £10million plus Alex Bruce for Jordan Rhodes.

Blackburn issued a statement on Saturday confirming that they had rejected two offers from Hull and that Rhodes was not for sale but Bowyer needs funds to strengthen his squad and may yet be forced to sacrifice the prolific striker.

Hull have £12m to spend following the sale of Shane Long and may be prepared to throw all of that at Blackburn to get Rhodes who scored in yesterday's 3-2 win over Bournemouth, his 54th in 100 appearances for the club.

Manager Steve Bruce is desperate to bring in a striker. He has been rebuffed in attempts to bring in Danny Welbeck from Manchester United so far and believes Troy Deeney of Watford to be too expensive at £10m.

He is also closing on a deal for Tottenham defender Michael Dawson and will increase his offer for the 30-year-old this week to around £5m but his main objective is to sign a goalscorer and Bowyer's meeting in India could prove pivotal."

Maybe you could emulate Burnley and gain automatic promotion?

you could play for 20+ consecutive yeas in the prem and still not achieve what we did.

Gary Bower said on sky sports interview that the Jordan Rhodes saga is not over giving the impression that he would like some of the funds for his team. He said until the window closes it's not over as though he was inviting other bids.

Absolutely correct. There is an article in the Hull Daily Mail today saying talks are still ongoing. Reading between the lines it appears that Bowyer wanted him sold to generate funds for new players. But it also says that Bowyer is flying out to India for talks with the owners ? Can't see that if they were here yesterday. Don't know what's going on here ???
Anyway anyone interested can Google it.

"Jordan Rhodes could be sold as Blackburn boss Gary Bowyer heads for crunch talks with owners to generate transfer funds. Manager Gary Bowyer needs funds to strengthen his squad, and Steve Bruce is keen to replace Shane Long, who moved to Southampton.

Blackburn Rovers manager Gary Bowyer has travelled to India for a crunch meeting with owners Venky's after they rejected Hull City's bid of £10million plus Alex Bruce for Jordan Rhodes.

Blackburn issued a statement on Saturday confirming that they had rejected two offers from Hull and that Rhodes was not for sale but Bowyer needs funds to strengthen his squad and may yet be forced to sacrifice the prolific striker.

Hull have £12m to spend following the sale of Shane Long and may be prepared to throw all of that at Blackburn to get Rhodes who scored in yesterday's 3-2 win over Bournemouth, his 54th in 100 appearances for the club.

Manager Steve Bruce is desperate to bring in a striker. He has been rebuffed in attempts to bring in Danny Welbeck from Manchester United so far and believes Troy Deeney of Watford to be too expensive at £10m.

He is also closing on a deal for Tottenham defender Michael Dawson and will increase his offer for the 30-year-old this week to around £5m but his main objective is to sign a goalscorer and Bowyer's meeting in India could prove pivotal."

Well done, for a socially inadequate overweight multi profile virgin it's impressive that you're able to cut and paste from the daily mail.

Our worst fears would actually be 0 points, being bottom of the table and not being able to attract players from lower league clubs - how embarrassing, never mind burnley are the best run club in the world, maybe you could think up a chant to go with that

'best run, we're the best run club in the world,
Our board won't spend a penny and we don't care
Because we're the best run club in Yorkshire

Wooden seats, we love having splinters in our arses
And then we smash up our town because
We're a well run club, a well run club in Yorkshire

Ffp will never effect us because we spend eff all,
Eff all we'll never spend eff all
On players, our ground and our town
Eff all, we've got no money or points but who cares
Because we're a well run club in Yorkshire

Our board love taking our money
Our season ticket prices have soared
But we don't care because we're well run
Well run, we're a very (little and unsuccessful) well run club in Yorkshire'

Totally agree. They'll be back before the window shuts with a compromise that amounts to £12M, including a makeweight or two. I wouldn't be surprised if the deal was not actually struck during the game yesterday, judging by all the activity in the directors lounge? ...what with JR getting subbed 15mins into the 2nd half and his transfer request all penned-up!

OK Troll we get it, you dont want your best trolling club taken away (sale of Rhodes )
However to answer your points on various posts above;
Daily Mail Story, the same paper ran a story on line which I read on the way to the ground at 2.15pm stating that Rhodes had been sold for 10 million-deal done and "would not play today". 4 hours after the club statement
GB says Rhodes saga not over - real meaning which was quite clear to anyone without troll agenda, the speculation wont stop until the window closes even though we are clearly not selling him
Rhodes substition- he picked up a knock in the game and at 3-0 up why risk aggravating it further. Also a chance for the fans to give him an ovation for scoring and staying..duhh
Trolls and press have one thing in common, an aversion to facts spoiling their theorys.
GB flying out to India?? the Venkys are HERE
GB did an interview on Radio Lancs this week quite clearly stating that if asked he would say dont sell JR, an unequivocal statement of his viewpoint
Just give it up Troll Man, it's over for now.Come back in January

Blackburn Rovers - 37 Years Unbeaten at Turf Moor hahahahah
The sad facts for us lot are as follows...

Burnley beat us at Ewood Park.

Burnley got promoted.

Burnley prevented us from sneaking into the play-offs.

Spend or not Burnley are now a very very wealthy club, and I believe will follow the West Brom example of sensible financial management, a few yoyo years and then establish themselves back as a top flight force.

We are in financial mess and about to be turned inside out by FFP.

Our only asset of value is going to be sold, whether he goes now or in January, he will go.

We will never see the Premier League again, and deep down each and every one of us knows it.

Sad times for our club and a couple of lucky results isn't fooling anyone, our defence is simply abysmal and without Rhodes we'll be a nothing team struggling to keep our heads above water.

Oh dear, our worst fears confirmed....


"Jordan Rhodes could be sold as Blackburn boss Gary Bowyer heads for crunch talks with owners to generate transfer funds. Manager Gary Bowyer needs funds to strengthen his squad, and Steve Bruce is keen to replace Shane Long, who moved to Southampton.

Blackburn Rovers manager Gary Bowyer has travelled to India for a crunch meeting with owners Venky's after they rejected Hull City's bid of £10million plus Alex Bruce for Jordan Rhodes.

Blackburn issued a statement on Saturday confirming that they had rejected two offers from Hull and that Rhodes was not for sale but Bowyer needs funds to strengthen his squad and may yet be forced to sacrifice the prolific striker.

Hull have £12m to spend following the sale of Shane Long and may be prepared to throw all of that at Blackburn to get Rhodes who scored in yesterday's 3-2 win over Bournemouth, his 54th in 100 appearances for the club.

Manager Steve Bruce is desperate to bring in a striker. He has been rebuffed in attempts to bring in Danny Welbeck from Manchester United so far and believes Troy Deeney of Watford to be too expensive at £10m.

He is also closing on a deal for Tottenham defender Michael Dawson and will increase his offer for the 30-year-old this week to around £5m but his main objective is to sign a goalscorer and Bowyer's meeting in India could prove pivotal."


Game over.
Well done, for a socially inadequate overweight multi profile virgin it's impressive that you're able to cut and paste from the daily mail.

Our worst fears would actually be 0 points, being bottom of the table and not being able to attract players from lower league clubs - how embarrassing, never mind burnley are the best run club in the world, maybe you could think up a chant to go with that

'best run, we're the best run club in the world,
Our board won't spend a penny and we don't care
Because we're the best run club in Yorkshire

Wooden seats, we love having splinters in our arses
And then we smash up our town because
We're a well run club, a well run club in Yorkshire

Ffp will never effect us because we spend eff all,
Eff all we'll never spend eff all
On players, our ground and our town
Eff all, we've got no money or points but who cares
Because we're a well run club in Yorkshire

Our board love taking our money
Our season ticket prices have soared
But we don't care because we're well run
Well run, we're a very (little and unsuccessful) well run club in Yorkshire'

Back to the web for you, to practice cutting and pasting and dribbling over your keyboard
That gets a ten from Len.
And another 10 from me!

Let's face it you were given a footballing lesson yesterday. Your strikers pulled you over the line but it's only papered over the cracks
