Gary Bowyer: Happy with Blackburn's efforts

Bowyer felt Rovers could have been awarded a penalty when Josh Morris appeared to be fouled by Kagisho Dikgacoi early in the second half.

But he also admitted Palace had a strong penalty claim waved away as well, in what was an exciting match at Ewood Park.

"It's a good point against very good side," Bowyer said.

"They're an attacking team and play a passing game but I thought we matched it at times and played some good stuff ourselves. With a little bit more care in the attacking third, we might just have won it.

"We had a great shout for a penalty when Morris got brought down. It was a stonewaller for me, though Palace had a good shout for a penalty too.

"But we've shown against a good team how close this championship is. We're delighted with a point but maybe we could have got three."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
