Saunders: Disappointed with defeat

Saunders: Disappointed with defeat

Rovers were unlucky not to be awarded a spot kick a couple of minutes later when visiting defender Charlie Daniels brought down David Syers, while Harry Arter's solitary first-half strike sealed three points for the Cherries.

Saunders said: "I've seen it again on video and it was a blatant penalty because their lad has just pushed him in the back.

"I thought we played really well at times, but a goalkeeping error has cost us the match and these things happen sometimes.

"We were on top for long periods in the game, but they defended with a lot of resilience and we just didn't get the breaks.

"I was pleased with the performance in view of the side we put out because we had half a team missing. I'm disappointed because we wanted to bounce back after losing the last match and it's important now that we don't go on a losing run after going seven matches unbeaten."

s it the same people that complain about Chelsea that complain about Mayweather? You should by now know what to expect from both, if you can't appreciate how good they are at nullifying their opponents then don't watch them.

do concede though, that getting rid of Luiz has made them less entertaining. In the same way that driving with both eyes open is less exciting, but probably a good idea.
