Frustrated Blackburn Rovers boss Gary Bowyer will be looking for his side to register their third home win of the season against Town on Saturday after yet another away setback.
Rovers were beaten 2-1 at Leicester City on Tuesday night – the Ewood Park club are yet to win away from home in the current Championship campaign.
Lloyd Dyer’s close-range effort gave City, who started the day in fourth but ended the night top of the table, a 16th-minute lead, which David Nugent’s penalty doubled on the stroke of half-time.
“I thought we didn’t defend very well for their first goal and then we were just preparing to go in at half-time when the second came,” said Bowyer.
“We had just started to get into the game and got into one or two good areas against a very strong and experienced Championship side, and then the linesman gave a decision that changed the whole course of the game.”
Bowyer said the Rovers players had vehemently argued with the officials over the spot-kick decision.
“I think you always judge it by the reaction of both sets of players,” said Bowyer.
“I think you could see what our lads thought of it, and I think if you look on the video again there’s only one Leicester player that really appeals and even then it’s half-hearted.”
Rovers hit back in the second half through former Town striker Jordan Rhodes’s 70th minute spot-kick.
The Football Association have charged Blackpool manager Paul Ince with three counts of misconduct towards match officials following Saturday’s clash with Bournemouth – the incidents are alleged to have occurred in or around the tunnel after the Seasiders’ 2-1 victory
