[Archived] News Article -> 2013/14 Full-Time: Rovers 0 Charlton Athletic 1

Recommended Posts

Charlton Athletic beat Rovers 1-0 at Ewood Park thanks to a first-half goal from Simon Church. It was a match of few chances and the home side were never able to get back into the match, even as they piled on the pressure in the second half.

Charlton took the lead in the 7th minute when Stephens' intelligent clipped ball allowed Church to get in behind the Rovers' defence and he controlled the ball on his chest before producing an excellent volleyed finish. The rest of the half saw both sides struggle to create any real openings, although Lowe fired over when he really should have done better.

Rovers had the better of the second half and saw several decent half-chances go to waste. Lowe nearly brought them level with a half-volley from distance, but his effort was deflected just wide of the post. Bowyer sent DJ Campbell on for his first appearance of the season and stuck Scott Dann up front in an effort to get an equaliser, but Charlton held out.

It was Rovers' second defeat on the bounce and Bowyer will be hoping to quickly right the ship as the team looks to keep up with the promotion contenders.
