It was a disappointing night for Blackburn on Tuesday, as they were beaten 1-0 by Millwall at The Den.
The hosts took the lead through Mason Bennett 20 minutes into the game, the striker tapping in from close range after a shot deflected off Darragh Lenihan and into his path.
After that, the game became something of a familiar story for Rovers, who once again enjoyed plenty of possession and territory without really managing to create too many clearcut chances, condemning them to a defeat that ends their hopes of reaching the play-offs for another season.
Perhaps not surprisingly given that rather lacklustre performance, there was much debate about the position of manager Tony Mowbray after the game, as fans took to Twitter to react to the game.
Should Tony Mowbray be managing Rovers next season?
With Rovers set for a second consecutive mid-table finish in the Championship, some supporters now appear to be of the belief that the time has come for Mowbray to move on and allow someone else to take over.
Others however, feel that he deserves more time to implement his vision for the club moving forward.
Here, we take a look at what some of those supporters had to say about Mowbray’s position at Ewood Park after that defeat to Millwall.
Thanks for everything Tony but its time to go. Going nowhere fast.

Time to go Tony. We need a manager who will play players in their correct positions and has some drive.

Every time we get close to the top 6, we follow it up with a toothless performance like this. Derby and Wigan all over again.
Mowbray can’t get the players up for the big occasions, and the tactics are just bizarre.
Nice guy, but he has taken the club as far as he can.

Another pooor performance v a poor team and losing. Sam Gallagher is a joke. TM really hope u are not managing rovers next season. I say it again please get Chris Hughton in now. Horrid performance. Take your staff with u when your sacked also.

2nd season in Championship pushing for play offs is good progress, especially if 16th on average wages, 19th on income, restrictions on owners of FFP, distorted unfairness of more clubs each season having Parachute money, which counts as turnover for FFP. Mowbray stays for me.

Same old excuses really… patched up defence …
No real attack… Soon no goal keeper.. Clearly we need new vision in tactics and management! – Tony’s methods have become very poor … Goodbye tony !! But you have had time and money, and its wasted…..
