Lukas Jutkiewicz slammed home the winner for the home side - but Rovers could and should have taken at least a point as they squandered a host of chances of their own.

Colin Kazim-Richards came the closest to netting for Berg's visitors when he struck a post from close range, but ultimately it was a familiar tale of what might have been for the Norwegian.

Berg said afterwards: "We played well - maybe for spells we played better than Middlesbrough - and we created chances but we lost 1-0.

"It is very frustrating but it has been like that for eight weeks now. We are playing well but not winning games.

"In football you have to take your chances. Middlesbrough created maybe two or three and scored. We created three or four or five but we are going away with nothing.

"People talk about luck and say that we hit the post but it is time for us to create our own luck, start taking chances and start winning games."

Blackburn are now without a win in their last six games ahead of Saturday's trip to face Barnsley.

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

F365's Transfer Guide - Part One

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
