Henning Berg: Was left scratching his head as Bolton dominated

It was Rovers' second successive home defeat and the Norwegian could not disguise his annoyance.

"To start the game like we did was very, very surprising, I must admit," he said.

"We're playing a local derby, we're playing against a team we played in the Premier League last season and we give them that much space.

"They played in front of us, they played in-between us, they played behind us, they scored a goal.

"For us to expect to win the game by starting that way is very frustrating, very surprising and nowhere near where we want to be.

"We have enough experience to know that when we start the way we do we give ourselves a mountain to climb and at the moment we're not good enough to get back into it."

Rovers face another local derby on Sunday when they travel to Burnley and Berg is under no illusion about what he expects from his players.

"It can't be too difficult (to pick them up), we're playing Burnley," he said. "Everybody knows what that means for everybody - the fans, players, staff.

"If you can't pick yourself up for a game like that you shouldn't be in football."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
