Whilst Rovers stretched their unbeaten run to eight games, disappointment was the overriding feeling after their 3-3 draw against Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday.
3-1 in front going into the second half, Rovers looked set to close the gap on the teams above them with a deserved away win, but two second half strikes saw the home side grab a share of the spoils to leave boss Gary Bowyer thoroughly frustrated.
"They've got to be two points dropped," said the manager after the game. "You can't chuck points away and that is what we have done.
"Our supporters were magnificent and they should have been going away having paid their respects that they did for the 96 magnificently well.
"They should have been going away celebrating a win and we haven't been able to provide that for them and that is majorly disappointing."
The draw leaves Rovers still four points behind sixth place, but with Reading facing already promoted Leicester City this evening, that could be stretched to six points with just four games remaining.
Despite this, the manager and the players won't give up.
"We'll get back in on Monday, we'll assess it all and go again," added Bowyer.
"We have four games left and as we all know, anything can happen in this Championship, but there will be a reaction on Friday from our lot."
Rovers return to Ewood this Good Friday when Yeovil Town are the visitors in the 3.00pm kick-off.
