Blackburn Rovers failed to make the most out of the form that they have had in recent weeks after only managing a draw with Yeovil town. Both teams failed to score throughout the 90 minutes in what was a dull affair. Blackburn came into the match after having been unbeaten in the last nine matches of the championship. This good run of form has helped them get back into contention for a play-off place with only a handful of matches left in the season. Blackburn have been expected to challenge for promotion spot at the start of the season.

However, there were lying mid-table during the middle of the season and this posed a lot of questions about the future of manager Gary Bowyer at the club. After the match, the manager admitted that the draw was a disappointing result. However, he felt that his players appeared to nervous during the 90 minutes to take advantage of a Yeovil town team that is struggling near the foot of the table. Yeovil are almost certain to be relegated to the League One. The points dropped from this encounter could come back to haunt Blackburn, who will be aware that the race for the play-offs is extremely tight.

"If you look at all the lads in terms of the performances that they've produced over the season, then they've not reached those standards that they know they can. We looked a little bit nervy, we passed it off when somebody might have taken that opportunity to shoot. We said before the game that there would be no easy match, we knew Yeovil would come to try and nick a point and they've done it. We haven't been cute enough in the final third today and that is it, we huffed and puffed. But we can't sulk, we can't feel sorry for ourselves,” said the manager.
