A draw was the fair result

Owen Coyle admitted that Rovers didn't deserve to win the match as they played out a goalless draw with Ipswich Town.

In a match in which the visitors had the best of the opportunities, the Rovers boss was disappointed that his side couldn't create any meaningful chances and that a draw was probably a fair result.

"I thought it was a hard-fought game as most Championship games are," the manager told Radio Rovers.

"It was scrappy at times but when we did get pass and move we got in good areas, but we weren't as incisive as we would have liked to have been.

"I'm disappointed that we couldn't get the three points, but we didn't do enough to earn them and that a draw was probably fair.

"It is our first clean sheet of the season, something we have been craving for a long time. We wanted the three points, but it is one point and a clean sheet and we'll look to add to that with another home game on Tuesday."

Rovers are back in action this Tuesday night when Nottingham Forest are the visitors to Ewood Park.

Tickets will be on sale up to the 7.45pm kick-off priced from £18 Adults, £12 Seniors/18-21 year-olds and £7 for Juniors aged 17 and under.
