Bowyer's praise for resilient Rovers

Gary Bowyer hailed his sides resilience and determination as they left it late to rescue a point against Cardiff City.

Sean Morrison's goal six minutes from time looked to have given the home side all three points in a closely run contest, until Rudy Gestede returned to Wales to grab a 90th minute leveller.

"I didn't think there was much in the game at all to be fair," said the Rovers boss. "I didn't think it was a particularly great spectacle.

"Both teams had half-chances cleared off the line and there was nothing much more to recall from the first half.

"I thought our application and our attitude following the exploits at the weekend was excellent, because it could have been very easy to get carried away with it and just turn up and expect to win.

"Any team is difficult away from home and the intensity they played with we matched without there being any great quality in the game.

"In the second half I think we've had the big chance with King and if that had gone in it could have been a different story for us.

"But with the resilience to keep going, that never-say-die attitude, we were able to get back in the game. I thought Chris Brown's contribution was tremendous for the goal, we were disappointed that it wasn't him that opened his account, but I don't think Rudy is too disappointed."

Rovers are back in action at Ewood Park this Saturday when Blackpool are the visitors - kick-off 3.00pm.
