ROVERS ARE WATER-TIGHT AT LAST
BLACKBURN’S porous defence – the principle reason behind their lowly league position – has been tightened in the past month and this was another terrific display.
Although they didn’t keep a clean-sheet (it probably wasn’t a penalty, too), the back two of Charlie Mulgrew and Gordon Greer were outstanding and dominant.
The former especially repelled everything that came his way.
It was partly why QPR struggled to register a clear-cut shot on goal from open play, but their bluntness and lack of creativity wasn’t just down to Blackburn stifling them.
Crosses were poor, runs behind were infrequent and shots were tame. After two previous good wins, it was a reminder of their inconsistencies.
