Evans Disappointed after draw with Wigan

Corry Evans has claimed that the half-time lead against Blackburn Rovers did not provide complacency for the team. Blackburn had a 2-0 lead at halftime and this provided them with a lot of belief about going on to beat Wigan Athletic. However, the strong team from League One were able to produce a remarkable comeback with goals from Adam Armstrong and Elliot Bennett. Even though the game could only yield a point for Blackburn, it was still a positive element for Corry Evans and the Lancashire team. They still remain in touch with the top of the table and could get promotion via the automatic places.

Still, a victory over Wigan would have put Blackburn ahead in the League One table. After having been struggling for results for a long time, Blackburn are finding themselves on a winning run once again. This is helping them move closer towards a return to the Championship. Even though Corry Evans acknowledges that it has been a tremendous run, the club wants to finish in the automatic promotion spots rather than in the play-offs. Blackburnknow all too well about play-off disappointments and the team would not want a repeat of the same for the 2017-18 campaign.

The result with Wigan cannot be deemed bad since Blackburn are now unbeaten in six games across all competitions. The club’s last defeat came against Plymouth at the start of February.“We were in a good position but they came back in to it in the second half and got the two goals which is disappointing from a really comfortable lead we had. We spoke about it at half-time that the third goal was going to be crucial, they managed to get it and we didn’t respond to it and it was two soft goals that we let in,” said Evans.
