Allardyce demands Blackburn take their chances

Blackburn boss Sam Allardyce is desperate for his team to begin scoring goals. Rovers have lost just twice in the last 10 league games but remain in the relegation zone after three wins in that sequence and, perhaps more tellingly, three goalless draws.

"There's good character, there's good spirit, but they've just got to get that end product that little bit better and be a little more ruthless in front of goal," he said.

"We've been working extremely hard on the defensive side so as not to be easy to score against and in the main that has been very good.

"But it's not just about the front men scoring, it's about whoever gets the opportunity, has that golden chance to score, needs to make sure that they do.

"Up to now we've been very close in terms of our overall play of just playing our way out of it, but we miss that end product.

"We weren't conceding goals any more but we couldn't find the one goal which was going to get us the all-important three points, so we ended up drawing five and winning three instead of winning at least five and only drawing three."
