Desire and belief

28 September 2014

Gary Bowyer hailed the spirit and character of the side after coming from two goals down to earn a share of the spoils against Watford on Saturday.

The Hornets lead at the break thanks to goals from Matej Vydra and Daniel Tozser, but Rovers hit back in the second half with a fifth of the season from Rudy Gestede and a first career goal for Ryan Tunnicliffe.

The home side could have won the match at the end as Tom Cairney struck the woodwork and Jordan Rhodes saw a goal ruled out, but Bowyer was pleased with their resolve.

"This group doesn't feel sorry for themselves," the Rovers boss told Radio Rovers.

"They never know when they are beaten, they never give in, they kept going and I thought they were excellent.

"The football we played was magnificent. The second goal, if it was in the Premier League, they'd be showing it time and time again because it is fantastic.

"Ryan's desire to get into the box is unbelievable. The pass from Cairney, the cross from Marshall to put it where he did was brilliant.

"They've got this belief in them that they've got goals in the team, they know that they can score at any time so full credit to them on that point."

Rovers are back in action this Tuesday night when they travel to the New York Stadium to face Rotherham United.

Tickets are currently on sale priced £23 for Adults, £13 for Over 60s and Students, £8 for 13-17 year-olds and £6 for Under-12s.

Fans should note that whilst tickets will be on sale at Rotherham on the night of the game there is a £2 increase in prices.
