Jordan Rhodes netted the winner for the hosts in the 36th minute to the delight of the home fans in the 15,317 crowd.

"It was a fantastic effort from everybody," said Bowyer, whose side are now two points above the drop zone.

"The supporters were magnificent. I've not heard Ewood like that for a long time. We needed their support

"We've been attacked in the press all season for reasons that the fans and the players can't control so we've developed a siege mentality over the last couple of weeks and we asked the fans to be part of that.

"It's been a team effort but we aren't going to get carried away.

"We've just got to stay calm, we've got to stay positive because there's a lot more football to be played."

Bowyer also praised Rhodes, adding: "You saw why West Ham and other Premier League teams are linked with him and long may they continue to be linked in the press from now until the end of the season.

"We've got to make sure we keep him fit and keep him on the pitch. He's got a big part to play between now and the end of the season, as has everybody."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
