Blackburn Rovers manager Gary Bowyer targets run of form

25 October 2014

Blackburn Rovers boss Gary Bowyer felt his side's ruthless display at the City Ground, which saw them win 3-1, had been coming.

And the manager has now targetted a good run of form.

Three goals in the space of 11 second-half minutes helped Rovers cancel out Matty Fryatt's opening goal for the home side and romp away with all three points.

Forest fan Alex Baptiste fired the visitors level, before substitute Rudy Gestede and Jordan Rhodes both scored in the space of two minutes to put the game out of Forest's reach.

Stuart Pearce's side had not lost at home this season, but the City Ground was left shell-shocked by the performance from the home side and the result, as they suffered a seventh Sky Bet Championship game without a win and dropped out of the Play-Off places.

"If you had seen us this season, we have put performances like that in before this season, Huddersfield at home, Watford at home - we have shown that we can create chances," said Rovers boss Bowyer.

"We have ability in the dressing room and belief and that was shown. We have the ability to create chances and score goals.

"Our local media did some research on how many chances we create in games and it turned out that we had been creating something like 20 chances a game, on average.

"There is a lot of improvement needed for us to keep getting better. But we do have belief and we do have ability.

"Of course it is important for us to get on a run now. But if you look at the Championship there are probably 15 teams who could break into the play-off places with a couple of wins.

"It is about finishing the season strong and we still have 30 odd games to go, so we are not getting carried away."
