It should have been three

25 November 2013

Tommy Spurr felt that Rovers deserved to take all three points in Saturday's goalless draw with Reading.

Rovers had the better of the chances at Ewood Park, particularly in the first half when David Dunn struck the woodwork and Tom Cairney was denied by Royals 'keeper Alex McCarthy.

"I think everyone feels in the changing rooms afterwards that it should have been all three," Spurr told Radio Rovers.

"With the chances that we had in the first half and the effort onto the crossbar, those were the two or three chances that stick out in the whole game.

"I don't think they had many chances at all. It never felt that they were going to score or threaten us.

"We were dominating the game in the first half especially, the second half they came out and pressed us a little bit more and made it more scrappy.

"It was just one of those games in the Championship that you needed to take one of those chances and won 1-0 and say we've done our bit.

"Obviously we didn't take our chances, so we'll have to take the point."

Rovers are back in action at Ewood Park next weekend when Leeds United are the visitors.
