We lacked that killer touch

Gary Bowyer was left to rue missed chances as Rovers had to settle for a point against Blackpool at Ewood Park.

Gary Bowyer was left to rue missed chances as Rovers had to settle for a point against Blackpool at Ewood Park.

Rovers looked on course for all three when Jordan Rhodes fired them in front after 14 minutes, but Grant Hall levelled for the Seasiders just before the break.

The second half saw Rovers camped in the Blackpool half but they couldn't make the most of their opportunties in what was a frustrating afternoon for the blue and whites.

"I think mass frustration is the feeling and the emotion at the moment," Bowyer told Radio Rovers post-match.

"We had enough chances - second half especially. We hit the bar twice, Jordan's header, then a very good shot saved, Brown flashes one wide, Baps at the death with a header.

"So in terms of their effort and commitment we can't fault that, but we couldn't quite get that killer blow in the final third.

"I think today is one of those where we've not won it because we've not been clinical enough in the final third. We had numerous chances to have won the game."

Rovers return to Ewood Park this Tuesday night when Norwich City are the visitors for the 7.45pm kick-off.
