Tony Mowbray has had his say on the incredible end to Rovers' game against Plymouth on Tuesday night.

The Blues had a number of chances to win the match, which ultimately ended 1-1, with substitute Ben Gladwin somehow denied from close range in the dying seconds.

Speaking after the game, Mowbray says he has sympathy for the midfielder, but says he has the "skill and ability" to make a big impact at the club.

"I feel for Ben," the manager said. "He's been really patient, he's had a tough start with acclimatising to new surroundings.

"It's not easy to move your family, find a new house and try to hit the ground running. He's found it difficult.

"Nonetheless, he's a wonderful talent. You watch him in training and the boys have got massive admiration for his skill and ability.

"What a time it would have been for him to score. In the last minute like that, it would have been great for his confidence and belief. 

"It wasn't to be. I don't know whether it was a great save or a block by the defender, but these things happen."

Gladwin and Rovers will look to pick up all three points when Portsmouth visit East Lancashire on Saturday (kick-off 3pm).
