Blackburn manager Owen Coyle reckons that the team had committed too many mistakes in the game against Ipswich Town and it ultimately led to their downfall.

The game witnessed both teams going into the break 1-1 after goals from Thomas Lawrence andAkpan cancelled out each other. However, there was a flurry of goals in the second half and it resulted in Blackburn losing the game 3-2. It was a major disappointment for Owen Coyle’s team especially after having managed a spectacular win over Newcastle United in the previous match. Just when it seemed that Blackburn would build on this victory, they have lost momentum once again.

Ipswich Town scored two goals in the space of four second-half minutes to get a comfortable advantage. Danny Graham’s penalty in the second half did at least give Blackburn some hope that they can get something from the game, but it was not to be. Now, the club will be looking to get the maximum points from the home match against Birmingham.

It will start a run of three consecutive home matches, which could go a long way to helping the club avoid relegation this season. Manager Coyle admitted recently that the club was in need of strengthening in the transfer window in order to have a chance of avoiding relegation.

"When you make the individual mistakes that we made today, then at the level we play at, there's every chance that you'll get punished for it. Although we've made terrible individual mistakes, which have led to them scoring their goals, we should still be leaving with something, because we certainly did enough to get that penalty late on, which might have led to a valuable point,” said Coyle. The was appointed as the manager of financially-troubled Blackburn in the summer.
