Despite an off day on Saturday, Tommy Spurr was pleased to come away from the Riverside with a point.

Rovers weren't at their best against Middlesbrough, but a strong defensive display saw them earn a share of the spoils in a goalless draw.

Speaking after the match on Rovers Player, the defender said: "If you look at it we didn't play well at all. When you come to a place like this get a point and a clean sheet you take that and move on to the next game where we will look to get the three points.

"We had a lot to do defensively and it hasn't been often that we've had games like that. So it is nice that we dug in and got the clean sheet. It was tough with the conditions.

"We didn't create enough going forward that you need to win games, but on an off day you have to look at the positives, we did keep a clean sheet and perhaps in the past that might not have been the case.

"So we'll take the point and move on."

Spurr played the match at the Riverside wearing protective headgear having needed stitches at the end of the win over Blackpool, but the defender hopes that it was a one-off.

"It was a pain in the backside, I probably looked a right idiot," added Spurr.

"It took a bit of getting used to but you just get on with it and hope for the best, but I hope I don't have to wear it again."
