Wasteful Rovers irritate Allardyce

20 September 2010 10:11
Manager Sam Allardyce claims it is 'unacceptable' that his Blackburn Rovers side continue to let leads slip. Rovers drew 1-1 with Fulham on Saturday after allowing a lead to slip for the third time in their five Premier League matches so far this season. Chris Samba headed the home side into a first-half lead at Ewood Park before Clint Dempsey restored parity in the early stages of the second period. "I am baffled why we go worse when we get a goal in front and are playing at home. I can't understand it, but that is what I saw and that is what happened," Allardyce told the Lancashire Telegraph. "We have been in front four times out of five and we have only won once. That is unacceptable. It is not the way you go about your job. "Getting in front again and not winning means we have been in front four times this season. "The hardest thing to do is getting a lead, the easiest thing to do is maintain that lead, or should be. "We are finding that very difficult at the moment, which we didn't do last season and that why we finished 10th."
