Blackburn’s difficult run of results in December continued on Tuesday evening following a defeat at Huddersfield Town.
After the late victory over Millwall at the beginning of the month, the Ewood Park outfit found themselves sitting 9th in the Championship standings, just two points adrift of the play-off places.
However, just one win in seven games since beating the Lions has left Rovers seven points behind the top-six, and that could extend to ten after the conclusion of the remaining second-tier games.
Blackburn looked on course to collected a much-needed point in Yorkshire after Sam Gallagher had cancelled out Naby Sarr’s 53rd-minute opener, but the Terriers defender then fired home a stoppage-time winner to send Huddersfield above Blackburn in the Championship table.
16 questions about Tony Mowbray that Blackburn Rovers fans may struggle to get correct – Can you get full marks?
Whilst Blackburn still have every chance of reaching the top-six if they start picking up victories in the New Year, some of the Ewood Park faithful have been left unhappy with Mowbray following this recent run of results.
Here’s how Blackburn fans reacted to Mowbray’s post-match comments after the loss at the John Smith’s Stadium:
I’ve stuck right with Mowbray and never once called for him to leave. I’ve never questioned his decisions or signings or replacing Nyambe when he could perhaps have slotted in at CB. But it’s now clear, despite a good start, we are going nowhere. It’s time for a change #rovers

Sadly I think mowbray won't be going anywhere he is the safest man in football, blackburn will be a mid table championship team for the foreseeable future hate to say it but it's true.

Nonsense of the highest order. He talks about “we had Buckley and Johnson back there”, but he was the one who actually decided to take off Nyambe.
