Lessons to be learned

16 April 2015

Craig Conway felt that the 2-2 draw with Birmingham City on Tuesday night was symptomatic of their season.

Missed chances once again proved costly as Rovers had to settle for a point at St. Andrew's after the home side twice came from behind.

The Rovers midfielder admits the team have lost points on far too many occasions this campaign and it will have to be something they address next year.

"That is why we are not up there," said Conway. "Results like that which we should have been winning, I could probably name seven or eight games off the top of my head that we should have won but we didn't.

"That is a fact and that is why we are not up there. So we've just got to take it on the chin and learn from it and that is something we need to focus on next season.

"We've still got a few games left to go and we want to get as many victories as we can on the board and start building for next season.

"I believe we've got a good squad here and good enough to be up there, it is obviously just the fine margins that you've got to win games like that and there's another seven or eight games that we could have done the same. Before you know it you've got 16, 17 points more than what you have at the minute.

'That is something that we'll have to take on board, overall we are a young squad so it is things like that you need to learn and move on from it.

"At the end of the day we are ambitious, we want to be up there. We don't want to be sitting mid-table even if it is in the top half of the table. We want to be up there challenging and that is where I feel we are good enough to be.

"Tuesday sums up what has been missing, we've got to go and put games to bed."
