Hughes: Frustration Is The Word
Blackburn Rovers manager Mark Hughes has revealed his frustration at the draw with Reading on Saturday, a draw which saw the European hopes take another knock.
The 0-0 draw with Reading (who finished with ten men) at the Madejski Stadium was two points dropped and did mean a missed opportunity to capitalise on what was a pretty good day for Rovers in our quest for UEFA Cup football next season. Frustration is the word that Hughes feels summed up the day best of all.
Hughes told Sky Sports: "Frustration is the word, obviously we were in the situation where we had the advantage with the extra man after their sending off.
"I think the international week has taken its toll, certainly on my players. It's been really fragmented and we've not had much preparation for this game.
"There seemed to be a lot of yellow cards and it was never a game that warranted the number of cards shown. That's my view but it's probably echoed by others."
