Blackburn Rovers continued with their unbeaten run
Blackburn Rovers continued with their unbeaten run under Paul Lambert, but they were unable to secure three points against Nottingham Forest.
The result disappointed manager Lambert, who was appointed in November, because he felt that Blackburn created more than enough chances during the 90 minutes to have secured a win. Three points would have confirmed the club’s improvement in the league table. They are closing in on a top 10 place after an unbeaten run that stretches back to the end of October. The last defeat suffered by the club was back in the home game against Burnley on October 24.
There were some nervous moments for Blackburn in the 90 minutes, but they are not as threatening as the stoppage time effort from Nottingham Forest that brought out a top save from Jason Steele. The save was immense since it preserves the confidence that the club has built in the last few weeks. Lambert has taken a whopping 11 points from a possible 15. This will help him put behind the disappointing spell with Aston Villa. The former Norwich manager was unable to make any impact at Villa Park. It is a completely different story with regards to this tenure at Ewood Park so far.
The club have a difficult away match against Reading in the next Championship outing. "It's an exceptional return.If they keep going, then let's see what happens. There will come a time when we do lose at some point, but they've shown they can do (it). They need maybe a little bit of help but 11 points from 15 has captured everybody at the football club - okay, let's see what can happen.That's the positive thing about the whole football club and training ground. None of that negativity that's been hanging around. It's a good time at the minute," said Lambert.
