Bowyer: Clinical Quality The Difference

Manager Reflects On Blackburn Defeat

10 March 2018

Gary Bowyer felt that Blackburn’s array of attacking quality made the clinical difference in a 3-0 defeat for his side

Goals from Bradley Dack and Adam Armstrong brought The Seasiders’ five-match unbeaten run in Sky Bet League One to an end, in a match where the manager didn’t feel his team received the rub of the green.

Speaking post-match, here’s what the manager had to say…

Quality in final third told.

They’ve paid over three quarters of a million for Dack and they managed to get Armstrong in on loan. You pay for the quality at the top end of the pitch. We gave it a right, good go and to be fair to the lads it was a good effort. In front of goal we just lacked that killer instinct. Two big decisions just before half-time have an affect as well.

Conceding in first-half stoppage time.  

You’re probably a minute and a half from coming in level. It’s just one of those things we’ve got to cut out of our game.

Passes and deliveries not made the most of.

It’s not quite dropped for Danny Philliskirk, it’s not quite dropped for Dan Agyei and not quite dropped for a few others, Armand especially because we got three really good balls in where he’s got to go and power in and head it.

Curtis Tilt’s header off the line.

Someone has told me it went over the line, but I’d have to have a look at that again. We just didn’t get the rub of the green with decisions and also the ball dropping a little bit, but you have to take your hat off to them a little bit with the quality of their goals.
