Positive signs

Despite going down to an opening day defeat, boss Gary Bowyer felt they could take plenty of encouragement from the way they performed against Wolves.

The Rovers started strongly in their league opener, but couldn't make their dominance count as the visitors took the lead on the half hour mark.

The home side hit back thanks to Carl Ikeme's own goal, but a hotly disputed second from Kenny Jackett's side meant a first day loss for Rovers despite their best efforts.

"I was pleased with the chances that we created and some of the football that we played," Bowyer told Radio Rovers. "We were patient in possession, I thought we made a decent start.

"It was a tremendous effort from the players out there. It is the start of trying to play a different way.

"We created chances and that is a positive, we just have to make sure keep working hard to get better at it.

"That wasn't a bad start but unfortunately we've been done over by a couple of decisions 
that have not gone our away.

"Obviously the players are disappointed because their efforts deserved a lot more than what they got. We'll debrief the game, look it properly, highlight the positives and build on that."
