Tony Mowbray: Blackburn boss says players disappointed after 4-2 win at Blackpool


Blackburn Rovers boss Tony Mowbray says his players were disappointed after their 4-2 away win against Lancashire rivals Blackpool.The result moved Rovers moved up to fourth in League One and extended their unbeaten league run to eight games.Mowbray’s side have won four league games in 10 days to move from 11 points off second place to just three points.

“I don’t think we dominated, we played against a decent football team who are well coached,” he said.”They carried threats against us and scored two good goals, which is frustrating to the group and they’re disappointed.”It’s a good sign to me that they can be disappointed after winning 4-2. We’ve got eight or nine clean sheets this year and the defenders are desperate to keep it going.”The game was originally scheduled for Saturday, 7 October, but was rearranged because Rovers trio Charlie Mulgrew, Corry Evans and Jayson Leutwiler were on international duty.And Blackpool slipped to 11th in the table after seeing their three-game unbeaten run ended.”Christmas has come early for them. I think you need a bit of luck, certainly in this game and the timing of the game when it got called off, we were in good health,” boss Gary Bowyer told BBC Radio Lancashire.”We can’t be going away from home in two difficult games and keeping two clean sheets and then conceding four at home in the manner that we have.”If we walk off and a team has hammered us and cut us open, fine, I’ll be the first to hold my hands up, but I don’t think they have done that, in all honesty.”
