Blackburn Rovers boss Paul Lambert has criticised his side for making costly errors during Saturday’s 2-0 defeat to Huddersfield at Ewood Park.

Rovers went into the match with only one win in their last six matches and a first-half strike from Nahki Wells and an own goal from Matthew Kilgallon helped extend that dismal run further.

The Blue and Whites have also lost their last three matches on home soil and Lambert admitted after the latest defeat that individual errors were costing his side dearly.

Lambert said: “We made two mistakes, incredible mistakes. The thing was we were the architects of our own downfall today. The first goal was a catalyst of errors.”

The former Aston Villa boss conceded that his side did not deserve to take anything out of the match against the Terriers, and the Lancashire outfit have now not won at Ewood Park since achieving a 2-0 success against Birmingham on March 8.

He added: “We huffed and puffed, we had some chances in the second half but we didn’t deserve anything from it.”

Blackburn have now slipped to 18th in the Championship table and they will be looking to end their slide down the standings when they travel to the City Ground to take on Nottingham Forest on Tuesday.

Rovers are unbeaten in their last three meetings with Forest, who are one place below Lambert’s men due to an inferior goal difference, and a victory on Tuesday could see them rise up to 16th in the league standings.
