Goals return worries Allardyce

Boss Sam Allardyce has again urged his Blackburn Rovers strikers to start converting more of the chances that his side are creating.

The Ewood Park outfit remain too close for comfort to the relegation places, having scored just 17 goals in 18 Premier League games this season.

Allardyce commented:"We set out our stall at the beginning of the season about the goal ratio we were aiming at and they are all way behind what they did last year, never mind improving on that.

"The more they miss the more they worry, but you have to take it on the chin.

"The one thing that gives you the confidence is to go out on the training ground and practising and you don't need a coach for that.

"We have faltered by not putting the ball in the back of the net, wins have turned into draws and draws into losses.

"In our playing form we have gone from being abysmal to okay, now we have got to go from being okay to very good.

"We have lacked consistency in results not performances – our performances have been good but we have been failing in our finishing."
