Bowyer acknowledges sub standard show

Bowyer acknowledges sub standard show

Rovers manager Gary Bowyer was far from a happy bunny after Rovers surrendered tamely in the 1-0 defeat to Charlton Athletic this afternoon.

Bowyer was unhappy with the build up to the Charlton winner from Simon Church in the 7th minute but also pointed to a lackluster effort in the final third from his own side, who by all accounts could have played until Christmas without scoring.

'We spoke about them coming with a game plan and they were spot on with their game plan,' the Rovers boss told Radio Rovers.

'We felt that we were disappointed with their goal that we conceded because we felt it was hand ball from the lad.

'Had they not scored then we'd probably be looking at a goalless draw similar to the Huddersfield game.

'I thought we responded quite well but we were just lacking that quality and creativity in the final third. You certainly couldn't fault the players for their work-rate or their efforts.'

Bowyer was reluctant to point the blame too much at his own players and felt luck also had it's usual hand in proceedings.

'The ball just didn't bounce a couple of times for us, it just didn't quite run for us. It was one of those days for us today.'

Rovers are next in action away to Blackpool next Saturday, Where all and sundry will be expecting a better display than the one served up today.
