Flitcroft's Blackburn Reaction

24 August 2013

Reds Manager David Flitcroft caught up with the press following today's clash with Blackburn Rovers.

“I was happy with the start and the first 15 minutes,” he said.

“We’ve come here with a game plan and system we wanted to execute. We did it for the first 15 minutes.

“That plan was working, but that plan hinged on having 11 men on the pitch.

“I asked Jordan Rhodes after the game if it was a foul, he told me he backed in.

“One thing that drives me mad is referees being conned by clever players.

“It’s a bad touch from Jordan and he realised he hasn’t got the pace to get away from Jean-Yves.

“The first goal, the execution is excellent, we can’t stop it. But we’ll go through, player by player, why we’ve conceded four more goals.

“The goals were soft. I can’t really find any positives after that.

“The only way to defend with ten players is to keep the ball – we did that in the second half.”
