WINNIPEG - That's two home games against West Division opponents in which the Winnipeg Blue Bombers have come up empty.

Thursday's 23-17 loss to Saskatchewan followed a 26-3 rout at the hands of the Edmonton Eskimos, Week 4, suggesting the 5-2 Bombers are having trouble handling their new digs in the league's tougher division.

"It's not a concern at all," receiver Clarence Denmark said. "When we play our game we can beat anybody. It's harder to win on the road than it is at home, but we'll get those mistakes corrected and move on."

Denmark was the most productive Bomber in Thursday's loss with six catches for 127 yards.

But the offence was one-dimensional, with no ground threat, and far too loose with the ball, giving away three fumbles and three interceptions and handing the Riders two defensive touchdowns.

"We can't rely on the last-minute comeback every game," Denmark said.
