Gary Bowyer was full of praise for the way the players showed their never-say-die spirit in rescuing a point in the 1-1 draw with Ipswich Town on Saturday.
Late goals from Rovers were a feature of the squad spirit towards the end of last season, and it shone brightly once more at Portman Road as Ben Marshall's 93rd minute free-kick earned them a share of the spoils.
"The players kept going, they didn't give in," said Bowyer after the game. "Corry Evans and Lee Williamson have run miles out there and we are delighted with everyone.
"I thought Alex Baptiste, when he came on, having been out injured for close to a month, I thought he did ever so well. Adam Henley came on and did ever so well.
"You talk about building something, and the group that we are, this is a massive learning curve for them.
"It is something that will hold them in good stead because they have learned how to play with ten men.
"They never gave up, they never stopped chasing, all this will do is make them grow even further and we are delighted with the response, we knew that they had that in them.
"We are just delighted that we took something from the game, we had 379 fans come today and they played their part massively.
"They deserved to make the long journey back up to Blackburn cheering something."
