Blackburn missed a golden opportunity to move within a point of leaders Bournemouth in one of the low-scoring football results of the weekend in the Championship. With both Bournemouth and Fulham having their games postponed, Blackburn was left frustrated by a resilient Huddersfield side who deservedly left with a point. Sam Gallagher came the closest when his effort was cleared off the line with their six-match-winning run coming to an end.
Blackburn’s Tony Mowbray: “I don’t want to sit here and hammer the referees. I don’t know what game they watch, that’s all. It’s embarrassing. You’ve got to know when a foul is a foul. You’ve got to understand it. Keith’s a pretty experienced referee and I thought he got a lot wrong today. Like us, they watch the Premier League and see the carnage going on with VAR at the moment. Who knows what a foul is and what isn’t a foul, and they try to be too clever sometimes. I watched the Brereton penalties. It’s two penalties, never mind one.”
Huddersfield coach Danny Schofield: “We knew we would be defending during the game due to their attacking threat. I think the structure in defense was really good, changed things a little bit, defended the space really well. We rode our luck at times on certain occasions but we’ve got a real good group of players who have got a real fighting spirit. They typify the Terriers spirit and that helped us get the point today.”
