Guest Kamy100 Posted December 16, 2009 Share Posted December 16, 2009 Rovers away day woes continued last night as they crashed to a 2-1 defeat against Birmingham. Two goal from Cameron Jerome put the blues in control. Nelson pulled one back to set up a frantic finish, however Birmingham held on to record their fifth straight victory. After the game Rovers manager Sam Allardyce lamented his teams defending "We expected Birmingham to come out all guns blazing and put us under the cosh," he said. "We controlled the first 10 minutes but then give them a first corner and decided to give them a goal. "With the form and confidence that they are in at the moment, it was always going to be difficult to come back from that. But to gift them another one really killed us. "Apart from those errors it is a toss of the coin as to who was the better side but Birmingham were the ones who took advantage of their opportunities." Rovers have now been dragged back into the relegation battle and face Tottenham at Ewood Park on Saturday. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
