Manager Neil Harris was left disappointed following the two nil loss to Blackburn Rovers last night because he felt we had the chances to take something from the game.

Speaking to the official site after the two nil defeat, Harris admitted we paid the price for missing our own opportunities as Blackburn hit us twice late on in the game to take all three points.

‘The bottom line is we’ve had chance after chance and haven’t made the most of them. The boys have been outstanding and I cannot fault them in any way; it just wouldn’t go in for us. What we produced in and around the box was very good and it was just the final product that was lacking.’

Harris went on to say that defensively he felt that ‘overall’ it was a strong display, but the first goal especially was a disappointing one to concede from his point of view and the second was a nature of the beast in many ways as we had to open up and chase the game more, and you always run the risk of being hit on the counter when you do that – and they did that.

‘I’ve got no complaints about the second as we have committed men forward.’

With us four points from safety still, a difficult game against promotion chasing Derby County is now a must win in any event. But that does hold fear for him, it represents an opportunity.

‘It’s a fantastic match for us at this stage. Derby are chasing a place in the Play-Offs while we have our own battle going on. The atmosphere will be good and we need to make the most of that. The positives are that we are playing well and we are exciting to watch. I thought we needed two wins to be in with a good chance and that hasn’t changed.’
