Pleased with the clean sheet but not the performance

There were mixed feelings for goalkeeper Jason Steele after Saturday's draw with Ipswich Town.

The stopper put in a man-of-the-match display as Rovers claimed a first clean sheet of the season, but he felt that they didn't do enough to earn all three.

"The clean sheet has been a long time coming so obviously we are happy about that but not happy about the performance overall," the keeper told Radio Rovers.

"It was scrappy, we didn't really create any chances at all and when you are at home you need to be creating chances and being on the front foot and taking the game to them and we didn't do that.

"I thought we'd get a chance, when you keep it at 0-0 you can nick it, but we didn't get a chance. At the end of the day we probably would have lost that game at the start of the season, so maybe we are making progress in those terms.

"The way they played they probably would have beaten us at the start of the season but we are standing up to it now and being aggressive albeit we didn't create much going forward. But I think that will come and hopefully it will come on Tuesday.

"I'm pleased with my performance, I'm pleased with the clean sheet, but I would have preferred the three points."
