Allardyce lauds excellent Rovers goals

07 Nov 2010 - 10:30:08

Blackburn Rovers manager Sam Allardyce has praised the team for scoring two fine goals in Saturday's 2-1 Premier League success against Wigan Athletic.

Morten Gamst Pedersen fired home a free-kick before Jason Roberts finished to seal the victory at Ewood Park.

Allardyce was delighted that Rovers turned the corner against their Lancashire rivals following last week's late defeat at the hands of champions Chelsea.

"We're absolutely delighted because we've reversed the scenarios we've been facing in the last few games," he said.

"We've been playing exceptionally well and in between that we've not scored the goals for the chances we've created and end up either drawing or losing the games, particularly last week against Chelsea," he said.

"It was probably our best performance of the season (against Chelsea) and we lost the game in the last four minutes by just switching off and a little bit of quality from Chelsea.

"Today, while in between we weren't as good as we normally were, our outstanding quality for the goals has beaten Wigan today."
