Whilst there was a tinge of disappointment that Rovers could only pick up a point against Huddersfield, boss Gary Bowyer was pleased to see the side claim their first clean sheet of the season.

In a game of two halves, the first 45 saw a host of chances created but spurned, but unfortunately the second didn't hit the same heights as Rovers had to settle for a point.

"The clean sheet is massive for Jake and the back four especially," Bowyer told Rovers.

"Like we've said all along, it is a team effort, we all defend together.

"I thought the midfielders pressed really hard, in the first half in particular, and we are delighted that we've got the first clean sheet, but we'd have liked it in better circumstances.

"The disappointment that they've got is a strength because they are setting their standards high which is positive.

"We've got seven points out of nine and one defeat out of our last four at home, so there's a lot to build on."

Rovers are next in action against AFC Bournemouth at the Goldsands Stadium this Saturday. Tickets are currently on open sale priced £22 Adults, £12 for Seniors & Students, £12 for Juniors aged 15 and under.
