Roberts Wont Let Criticism Get Him Down

Roberts Wont Let Criticism Get Him Down

Rovers striker Jason Roberts is not going to let jibes about his goals scoring record and his finishing get to him.

There have been some calls from Rovers fans for J-Rob to be dropped on the basis of his recent misses.

Thw two that come to mind are the recent miss against Everton where he was one on one with Tim Howard and the horror open net miss against Sunderland in January.

Roberts, speaking to Sky Sports said, 'My goals per start is not too bad, I'll keep plugging away. To score goals, you have to miss chances,'

'I'll keep my head up, keep positive and try to do the right things - and I know the goals will come.

'You have to keep being brave and getting in there. No striker in the world doesn't miss chances.'

Fair point...

works hard but has missed far too many important chances this season for my liking, which leaves us in the bottom 3

He has cost us points but he has arguably gained us some as well. His effort outside of the goal scored column has been better than any other striker at the club.

He does add something, but really needs to work on his finishing. I remember seeing the "Jason Roberts school of finishing" on the BBC website some years ago (pre-Blackburn) and I had a sly chuckle then. I'm happy to have a Heskey-esque player starting week in, but you've got to think that most strikers would have managed a better effort than his surrender against Everton last week.

He does add a lot to the side but he MUST start to take more of his chances as these missed opportunities could be opportunities that send us down!!!
