The point was the least we deserved

Tony Mowbray felt that a point was the least Rovers deserved as they drew 1-1 with Cardiff City on Tuesday night.

The home side dominated the match at Ewood Park for long spells, but it looked like Kenneth Zohore's first half strike would be enough to give the Bluebirds the win.

But urged on by another vociferous home support, Rovers got the reward for their endeavours on 90 minutes, when Derrick Williams pounced on Connor Mahoney's cross to fire home.

"I think it was the very least that we deserved," Mowbray told Radio Rovers. "I think the chances that came and went were so frustrating to be honest.

"What was most interesting for me was that it was the first time since I've arrived that we've actually had to go chasing the game as we'd been in front in the other three matches.

"I was really pleased with the way we applied ourselves to go chasing the football match. The goalscorer epitomises how you go chasing games when you are gambling. I said to them that we might as well lose 2-0 as to not have a go.

"I thought the principles that I bring to a football team worked really well. I don't think they were a threat on the break, I can't remember too many chances for them.

"We just built up the pressure and it was coming. They dug in beyond the call and got the result."

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

Tickets for the match are currently on open sale, priced at £25 Adults, £15 Seniors 65+, £10 Under 18, £5 Under 12 £5.
