TC: A good point on our travels

Tom Cairney wants Rovers to build on Tuesday's point against Cardiff City by ensuring they get all three against Blackpool on Saturday.

Rovers were thankful for a 90th minute leveller from top scorer Rudy Gestede at the Cardiff City Stadium to help them to another point on their travels.

The midfielder admitted it wasn't the best of matches in Wales but that it showed the side's resilience once more.

"It was a tough game but after all you can say it was a good point," said Cairney.

"It was scrappy, they worked hard, but to get that goal at the end was good, we always seem to come back when we are down, we don't give up."

Cairney played his part in the equaliser at the death. His jinking run into the Cardiff box saw him tee up Chris Brown, and although Brown saw his effort blocked on the line, Gestede was on hand to fire home his 15th of the season.

Cairney added: "I thought about having a go myself but then I saw my big car school partner in the six-yard box, so I pulled it back to him and it got cleared off the line.

"I thought are you joking but thankfully Rudy put it in afterwards."

Rovers now have back-to-back home games with the Seasiders on Saturday followed by Norwich City at Ewood on Tuesday night and Cairney knows it is hugely important to get another three points in front of the supporters.

"I think we've now got to look to win on Saturday against Blackpool," added the midfielder.

"We are looking forward to it, the games are coming thick and fast with games Saturday and Tuesday so we've got to get three points as quickly as possible."
