Rovers excite but disappoint

Rovers left Ewood last night after another thrilling encounter, one they should have won, but with just the solitary point to show for their efforts.

Gary Bowyer's men once again displayed a finally found ability to get on the front foot after a very lacklustre opening 20 minutes and really took the game to Brighton with goals from Tom Cairney and a double from Jordan Rhodes shipping enough goals to traditionally win a game.

But defensive slips saw visitors Brighton leave with a scarcely deserved point, with what should have been a penalty winner cancelled out within a minute to ensure the spoils were shared in another 6 goal thriller (Rovers fourth draw on the bounce).

'We can't score three goals and not win the game,' Bowyer told Radio Rovers. 'We said that last Tuesday and we've done the same again tonight.

'It is really frustrating and disappointing. When you look at the quality of our goals and compare them to the goals that we have conceded it is hugely disappointing.

'We have scored some outstanding goals, the second goal is an unbelievable move from start to finish.

'All three of their goals were preventable, they only had four shots on goal and they've scored three of them.'

Rovers have suffered from an imbalance since the beginning of the season with an overly pragmatic approach in a large of games ensuring our goal threat was minimised.

But in recent games, a more proactive approach to attack has seen Bowyer's men look dangerous, but this has come at the expense of defensive solidity.

But solace can at least be taken in the form of the salivating prospect of David Dunn, Tom Cairney and Craig Conway - who were all excellent in advanced positions.

We need to strengthen in a few key positions namely creative midfield (for Dunnie), defensive midfield (for Williamson who is simply awful), right wing (as Feeney and Taylor can't cut it) and right back (for Kane/Henley) if we are to mount a serious challenge next season
