Delighted with the deserved draw

Tony Mowbray hailed his side's never-say-die sprit as they claimed another point on their travels in dramatic fashion at Craven Cottage.

After Fulham substitute Gohi Cyriac looked to have given the home side all three points four minutes from time, it was Rovers' very own super-sub Lucas Joao who grabbed a share of the spoils four minutes into injury-time.

Afterwards the boss paid tribute to the team's effort and desire, as well as the 700-odd supporters who made the midweek journey to the capital.

“For the effort, drive and desire we showed in the second half I thought we deserved it," said Mowbray.

“They were a very good passing team who can suffocate you if you’re not on the front foot.

“I thought they worked really well - took the game plan on well, and hopefully there will be a lot of belief from a result that not many people would have given us much of a chance of getting.

“Fulham are a team on the up, they won 3-1 at St James’ Park and they have some very good players, fleet footed, very fast, very direct and I thought we managed them generally okay.

“I was delighted for the supporters who made the long trip and for the players who managed to take a point after a really difficult game at Norwich and we need to reinforce that with three points at the weekend.”

Rovers are back in action this Saturday when Preston North End are the visitors to Ewood Park.
