The players showed the required passion

Tony Mowbray was delighted with the passion and commitment shown by the team as they struck late to earn a point against Cardiff City on Tuesday night.

For the first time in the manager's tenure Rovers found themselves behind, as Cardiff striker Kenneth Zohore scored in the first half.

But Rovers put the Bluebirds under immense pressure in the closing stages, eventually getting their reward when Derrick Williams fired home from close-range in the 90th minute.

"I've seen it in the last two games particularly when we've been trying to protect a 1-0 lead," Mowbray told Radio Rovers after the game.

"This time it was a different type of passion of pushing themselves beyond, trying to get back into the game, and I think they showed that in bundles tonight.

"I can only be pleased with them but we have to be disappointed against a team that I think we dominated for long spells and had all the chances. I thought it wasn't going to be but thankfully Connor whipped in a great ball in and Derrick, our left back, was in the six-yard box to score.

"So whilst we are disappointed we are also pleased with the effort and pleased that we didn't lose the game. 

"It is important to keep the unbeaten run going. We'll now rest and prepare for the next game now."

After three matches at home, Rovers are back on the road this Saturday when they travel to Carrow Road to take on Norwich City.
