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."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
