Kean - 'The occasion got to us'
Rovers manager Steve Kean feels that occasion of Saturday got to the Rovers side as they turned in one of their worst displays of the campaign.
Rovers were disjointed and lacked any sort of creativity whilst succumbing to a 2-1 reverse, with Kean feeling that Bolton coped with the difficult occasion better than the away side.
Whilst Bolton had a spring in their step, Rovers looked off the pace which is worrying heading into the final eight games of the season.
Kean told Sky Sports - 'It is tight, I always said that (ed - When did you ever say that Kean?), which is why we weren't getting carried away over the last number of weeks.
'We know there will be twists and turns but we can take massive encouragement from the fact that over the last number of weeks we have been picking up points at very difficult grounds against very difficult opponents. I am sure we can do that again.'
'We didn't cope with it very well at all,' he said.
'The first half was way below our normal standards, which have climbed dramatically over the last 12 games.
'Normally when we are quick to the ball and win possession, it ends in a fruitful attack. We always create chances and score goals but the occasion might have got to us a little bit.'
