Allardyce Determined Not To Let Morale Drop

Allardyce Determined Not To Let Morale Drop

Blackburn Rovers allowed a two-nil lead against Manchester City to slip on Sunday, but Sam Allardyce is determined not to let this damage the newly found high morale at Ewood Park.

When Benni McCarthy and Jason Roberts put Rovers in control, with only two minutes to play victory looked very much on but goals from Daniel Sturridge and Robinho (in the fifth minute of injury-time) meant we had to settle for a 2-2 draw at Ewood. Allardyce knows that errors were made and we should've won, but the Rovers manager doesn't want this setback to damage morale and wants his side to react in the best possible way when the Premier League returns after the FA Cup Third Round.

Allardyce told Sky Sports 1: "We didn't compose ourselves to keep the ball and not let them get back into our penalty area.

"We left Robinho all alone at the back post and got caught ball-watching to pay a heavy price in a great performance.

"By the time the next Premier League game comes around we will try and lift the players and make sure it has not knocked their confidence.

"We have really thrown away four points in the last two games. We should have won and we have drawn.

"That is massive given the position we are in. We are still a win off getting out and that is the big problem we have.
"

I am sure Sam can rally the troops. Apart from the two late goals it was a nother good performance and the defence looked a lot more solid - Ryan Nelsen has got back to his best and we look menacing going forward.
