Bowyer raps lack of passion

Last Updated: Sat, 01 Mar 2014 18:39

Blackburn boss Gary Bowyer was bitterly disappointed with the lack of fight his team showed in the 4-0 loss to Bolton at the Reebok Stadium.

The Trotters were headed into the lead by Medo Kamara before goals from Joe Mason and Jay Spearing either side of the break.

Andre Moritz then scored from range in injury time for Blackburn's biggest league defeat this season.

The result ended a five-game unbeaten run for Blackburn, who are now six points adrift of the top six.

Bowyer said: "I thought the first goal was crucial. We had two very good opportunities and their keeper made two very good saves.

"But we're disappointed with the manner of the goals we've conceded to be honest. It was out of the blue from the standards that we've set ourselves this season.

"Our results have been decent but it's a local derby and I did not think that we displayed enough passion.

"We're also disappointed with the timings of the goal we've conceded. It was not acceptable from us."

Bowyer was also not happy with the assistant referee's decision to award Wanderers third goal.

He added: "We had to put three up front and have a go at it at half-time. But the timing of the third goal and for the linesman to see that the ball has gone over the line from his position if you see his position, he's got some eyesight.

"But congratulations to him because he got it right, though. I must ask him where he goes for his eye tests."
