Points have slipped through our fingers

24 April 2017

Tony Mowbray admits that Rovers have drawn far too many football matches this season.

Saturday's stalemate against Wolverhampton Wanderers was Rovers' 15th draw this campaign, a stat that the boss is far from happy with.

Seven of those have been under Mowbray's charge, and whilst happy with the point on some occasions, he knows there were other times that they should have come away with a win.

"I haven't seen all the games of course but we can talk about the games since I've been here," Mowbray told Rovers PlayerHD.

"We should have won at Norwich, being 2-1 up only to get really sloppy in the last eight minutes to let a team with ten men pull a goal back.

"We had opportunities to win other games, we should have won against Preston at home, I thought we should have beaten Cardiff at home as well.

"So lots of points have slipped through our fingers and it looks as if it will come down to the crunch now.

"We have to build up this week, get ready for Villa at the weekend and try and get three points.

"We have to aim for two wins, lets keep going."

Rovers return to Ewood for the final time this season when Aston Villa are the visitors next Saturday.
