Now, Paul Lambert isn’t breaking out into song with a number from Frozen! The Blackburn boss was talking in relation to the weekend defeat and how Rovers have to ‘let it go’ and move on from it.

Lambert’s first defeat since his appointment left everyone ‘disappointed’ but the boss has made it clear it’s important not to ‘dwell’ on the Reading defeat, we simply dust ourselves down and go again.

Defeat, which also ended the eight-match unbeaten run, was suffered when Danny Williams scored a fine goal early on with, as they say, that a goal worthy of winning any game really to be fair!

He told rovers.co.uk he felt Rovers had enough chances to get something but you move on.

‘Everybody is disappointed to lose but it is important that we don’t dwell on it, we have to let it go. We can’t take anything away from the strike because it was a brilliant goal.

‘But we had big moments when we could have scored a couple in the first half when we dominated the game. We had some great chances to score with some terrific balls going into the box. Fode had a carbon-copy chance that he had against Nottingham Forest with his header.’

As the home side, as expected, Lambert added Reading ‘came into it in the second half’ but a failure to ‘score when we were on top’ is what cost Blackburn, but this happens at times.

He didn’t think much more could have been done to get an equaliser and ‘couldn’t fault the guys’ finishing by saying one run might have ended but now Rovers look to starting another in the Boxing Day meeting with Middlesbrough.

‘The lads have been on a terrific run of form, there’s nothing to be too down, we lost the game but we’ll bounce back next Saturday.’
