Paul Lambert felt Rovers did enough to win the game as they had to settle for a point in a 2-2 draw with Sheffield Wednesday.
Rovers twice got their noses in front thanks to a first goal from Hope Akpan and a Corry Evans strike, but each time the visitors got back on level terms.
"I thought we did enough to win the game," Lambert told Radio Rovers after the game.
"We were up against a good side in Sheffield Wednesday, a team that had beaten Arsenal not that long ago, so we knew it would be a hard game.
"I've said to the lads that if you can't win the game then make sure that you don't lose it. So the point could be massive come the end of it.
"There's no negativity at all, we've got a group of lads here that are honest as the days long, they give you everything they've got and on another day we might have won that.
"Their equaliser was a fortunate goal as Grant was hurt and the referee could have stopped the game. And even the finish is a mis-kick and the lad has headed it in.
"But I couldn't fault the lads for their commitment, there is so much work to be done here, and we'll do everything we can to make the better and successful."
