A great effort from the players

25 April 2015

Boss Gary Bowyer was frustrated that Rovers weren't able to hold on to claim all three points against Huddersfield Town.

After a slow start Rovers struck through Rudy Gestede and Jordan Rhodes, but a hotly contested free-kick was well converted by Jacob Butterfield to make it 2-1 at the break.

Rovers were more than holding their own in the second half until the home side levelled with six minutes to go through Joe Lolley, but it took two last-ditch blocks from the Terriers to deny Josh King and Rhodes from securing the win.

"I thought we started a little bit nervous," said Bowyer post-match.

"With the back four that we had put together, and in giving Darragh Lenihan his full debut, there was a little bit of getting to know so to speak. But then we settled into the game and started to play some decent stuff.

"The first is a fantastically worked goal, a mazy run from Jordan Rhodes before it falls to Rudy.

"Then we get more of the ball and Craig Conway puts another great delivery, his tenth assist of the season, and a fantastic bit of movement from Jordan for his header.

"To go 2-0 up you know you are never done. I didn't think it was a foul for their free-kick.

"We had chances to go 3-1 but we didn't take them and again we thought there was a foul in the build-up to their second with a push on Lee Williamson.

"But with all that we've had to put up with over the last couple weeks in terms of bodies missing, we stuck at it, we kept going and we had the best chances at the end to win it.

"So we come away from here nine unbeaten away from home which is a great effort from the players."

Rovers bring their season to a conclusion next Saturday when they play Ipswich Town.
