'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Rovers left licking wounds

Rovers were left counting the cost of defeat, after succumbing to a more energetic Nottingham Forest side on Saturday.

A 4-1 score may have flattered the home side, but victory did not and to further compound the disappointment the club are waiting on news of Scott Dann's altercation with Darius Henderson near the end of the game which saw Rovers play out the remaining minutes with 10 men.

"We had a situation where we lost Scott to what looked like a nasty challenge and we are going to have a look at that again,' Bowyer told the Lancashire Telegraph.

"We are a little bit concerned about Scott and that`s why we will get him checked out. We felt at the time it wasn`t a particularly pleasant challenge.

"But we`ll have a look at it again and then if we need to make a further comment we shall do so."

Rovers were hardly enamored with the referee before the Dann incident with Darren Deadman awarding what looked the softest of penalties against Grant Hanley in the first half which opened the scoring account for the afternoon.

But Bowyer was not overly concerned with the performance of his troops, despit acknowledging the defending left a lot to be desired at times.

Bowyer added - "The scoreline may give some people the opportunity to go overboard. But the people that were here and who give an honest reflection on the game would say we did all right in certain areas.

"It`s just that it all hinged on that first decision from the referee."

Rovers are next in action on Saturday afternoon, as they face Derby at Ewood Park.
