Match proves unlucky 13 for Rovers

Match proves unlucky 13 for Rovers

As if Blackburn Rovers failing to improve on the miserable run of results at Upton Park wasn't enough we gained another unwanted achievement.

Prior to the 2-1 defeat by West Ham United on Sunday we had not suffered back-to-back defeats in the Premiership in 12 matches! After last weekend saw Rovers go down 1-0 to local rivals Bolton Wanderers, the thirteenth match in this current sequence proved unlucky 13 against West Ham.

So for the first time since April, towards the end of the 2005-2006 season following a 1-0 defeat at Ewood Park against Liverpool on 16th April and then three days later a 2-1 defeat by Birmingham City at St Andrews on 19th April Rovers have suffered back-to-back Premiership defeats.

Better news though, the last time this did happen Rovers then went on to win their next three Premiership matches (the final three of the 2005-2006 season) scoring five goals and failing to concede any! More of the same against Aston Villa, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur in our next three Premiership games would be VERY welcome...

.... shocking they deserved the win we played "rubbish" they out played us all over the pitch just like rovers vs. bolton we should have won that and maybe the liverpool game but the hammers game they did deserve the win because they played great i think its because they had Etherington on the left and Sherringham the team of last season but yes we didnt play very well at all

Not one of Rovers' better days it has to be said! You always felt that the Hammers bad run would end in this game though didn't you!

Championship Cost Per Goal So Far In 2016/17

The end of the Championship campaign of 2016/17 is only a month and a bit away from fans across the country but as we go in to the remaining weeks of the campaign...

Positive Signs For Bennett

Bennett was positive of Blackburn being able to see off Lancashire rivals Preston heading into this game at Ewood Park after the Norwich and Fulham results.

Minor Graham Setback

Blackburn had to do without Danny Graham against Preston following the groin problem that forced him off against Fulham last week. He could return against Brighton next week.

Hugely Frustrating

Mowbray admitted Blackburn didn't start the game well against Preston but had then been the dominant side so was 'majorly disappointed' not to record a victory.
