We were the better side

Paul Lambert wasn't too downhearted with his Rovers side despite going down 1-0 to Derby County on Wednesday night.

Jacob Butterfield's early strike ultimately gave the Rams all three points, but the Rovers boss felt that the free-kick shouldn't have been given and that the goal shouldn't have stood.

Lambert was proud with the way his side performed and felt that they deserved something from the game.

"I thought we deserved to win the game, let alone anything else," said the Scot. "We came here and we dominated the game.

"For their goal I didn't think it was a free-kick in the first place and then I felt Bradley Johnson was offside when the ball came in.

"Okay they had one or two chances which they are entitled to have, but I don't think anybody in this stadium could deny that Blackburn Rovers were the best team.

"We peppered their goal, we had a lot of the ball and you could feel an edginess here.

"I thought we were excellent, for as well as we played against Fulham, I thought we were much better here.

"With the way that we played I was proud of the lads, I really was."

Rovers are back in action this Saturday when MK Dons are the visitors to Ewood Park.

Tickets will be on open sale until 3.00pm kick-off. Prices are from £18 for Adults, £12 for Seniors 65 and over, £12 for 18-21 year-olds and £7 for Juniors aged 17 and under.
