Frustrating to drop points

13 February 2017

Derrick Williams admitted it was frustrating to only come away with a point in Saturday's match against Rotherham United.

Rovers enjoyed the better of the play for long periods at the AESSEAL New York Stadium, creating numerous chances, including twice striking the crossbar, but they needed a late own goal to get a share of the spoils.

"There's frustration, especially how we played in the first half," Williams told Rovers PlayerHD.

"They had 15 minutes in the second half in which they did well, but we should have been three or four up in the first half. Again in the second half we could have had two or three.

"Usually we tuck those chances away but it just wasn't our day.

"So it is definitely two points dropped, but luckily the teams around us didn't win so we go again on Tuesday and try to catch them."

The Rovers defender played his part in the 86th minute equaliser, but as much as he would have loved to have claimed the goal, he admitted it was Rotherham defender Stephen Kelly who put the ball into the back of his own net.

He added: "No it wasn't mine. It was a great ball in from Connor, I was close to it but I just wanted to put my man off and try to push him into it.

"I tried to put him off and luckily it went in. It was a massive goal.

"Every game is a cup final for us now, we go to Sheffield Wednesday looking to get the three points. It'll be tough but I think we'll want it more and hopefully we can come out with the points."
