Paul Lambert: ‘We should have won’

Blackburn Rovers v Wolves

Blackburn Rovers boss Paul Lambert admitted Saturday’s goalless draw with Wolves was ‘one of the poorest games’ he had ever seen but he still felt his side should have won.

Rovers went into the game on the back of two defeats to Preston North End and Sheffield Wednesday.

In a disappointing Championship clash, Rovers had the best two chances through Jordi Gomez and Shane Duffy.

Gomez was denied by Wolves goalkeeper Carl Ikeme at the end of the first half before Ikeme then saved from Duffy towards the end of the game.

Rovers centre-back Grant Hanley was in fine form at the back but Lambert admitted he was left frustrated after failing to pick up all three points.

He told the Lancashire Telegraph: “It was one of the poorest games I’ve seen but their goalkeeper has kept them in it with three world-class saves; two from Gomez and one from Shane Duffy.

“I’m disappointed not to win the game as we had the better chances, and to come here and for Jason Steele not to have had to make a save is testament to the defence.

“But I just didn’t think the quality was there like it has been. It was a nothing game and both teams made a lot of mistakes. But, as I said, we had the best chances and we’ve played well in games, and come away with nothing so I’m probably nitpicking a little bit.

“I thought we should have won it toward the end.”
