Rovers boss happy to collect a second clean sheet of the season but disappointed with the lack of chances created.

Eric Black was delighted with his side's defensive resilience after Rovers picked up another point on their travels with a goalless draw against Nottingham Forest.

Goal chances were at a premium on a night when Rovers were strong defensively which left Black happy with the point and the defensive display, but ruing a lack of cutting edge up front.

"I think it is a good point," Black told reporters after the game.

"We have been conceding quite a few goals to date, but it maintains our unbeaten away form, which as you can see from this division's results, is not an easy task.

"I would be honest in saying that I would like to have created a bit more but we changed the shape and the players worked really hard to adopt that shape, and worked really hard to try and make it work.

"The front two worked extremely hard, but we have to work the ball better up the pitch, we have to try and ensure that we try and create.

"But the attitude of the players to defend their goal, to defend that away record was excellent, I think those things were the positives, but I would have liked to have created more chances.

"We'll be back in tomorrow and we'll try and get them as refreshed as possible to go again against Wolves."
