Blackburn were on for a win against Wolves that would have taken Rovers out of the bottom three but a controversial late equaliser meant the match at Ewood Park ended in a one-one draw.

Another fine goal from Sam Gallagher gave Blackburn the lead early on with Dave Edward’s goals late on saw Wolves get a point with Owen Coyle ‘frustrated’ as he felt further chances should have been taken.

The ‘ultimate frustration’ was the fact Wolves’ goal was offside, he told

‘There were chances to get a second goal but we passed them up, but the ultimate frustration is not getting the three points because again we’ve been punished by an incorrect decision as the boy is clearly offside, two yards offside, when the ball is crossed back into the middle.’


‘It happened to us in the Sheffield Wednesday game when we scored a perfectly good goal when that was given as offside against us, so when people talk about the bounce of the ball, that isn’t luck, it is a clear decision that they didn’t get right. That is four points that we should have had from those games.’

Despite the equaliser he wasn’t happy with he still thought a winning goal, which Blackburn looked for, could have come as enough was done to ‘win the game.’

He concluded but for a ‘terrible decision’ that would have been the case with the players a ‘credit to the club.’

‘Even then at 1-1 we picked ourselves up and went looking for that winner, I felt we did enough to win the game tonight. I thought the players worked their socks off, I thought they were a credit to the club and themselves. If we keep giving those level of performances then the wins will be there.’
