Another week, another game, and a familiar set of thoughts from manager Ian Holloway.

A two all draw against Blackburn Rovers isn’t a result to be sniffed at really and it does bring to an end a run of back to back losses, but with how the game went and with us taking the lead twice in the game, the gaffer was again left gutted at full time because he feels we deserved the win and more for our efforts on the day.

Speaking to the official site our defending from set pieces took the brunt of most of Holloway’s frustration as he says categorically we must be better organised than that in the future.

‘We need to organise ourselves better at set pieces. We had enough men back to deal with the two goals. We have to take full responsibility as a group because we’re not leading ourselves as we should out there.’

Having seen us twice take the lead through penalties, one scored by January signing Shaun Williams, and the second by Simeon Jackson, and Holloway admitted that the sending off of their player Grant Hanley he thought was very harsh indeed, but in football you have to capitalise on moments like that and make them count, and we didn’t do enough to achieve that, so for him it’s definitely two points dropped rather than a point gained, and that is bitterly disappointing for him given where we are in the table.

‘We have to get five wins from our last seven games. There is two tough away matches coming up against Nottingham Forest and Wigan, but we went to Derby and got a win so why can’t we do it again?’

The gaffer finishes by saying that as always the players will continue to fight and he continues to have belief in them, and the problems we have he feels are easily sorted out, but we need overnight change now in results as really the point yesterday wasn’t enough.
