Rovers boss Tony Mowbray admitted to feeling "huge disappointment" following Tuesday's 1-1 draw with Plymouth, but stressed that there's still a long way to go this season.

The Blues dominated the game at Ewood Park, coming from behind but missing several chances in the second half as the game ended 1-1.

Speaking after the game, Mowbray said "it wasn't to be", but is refusing to get carried away by the result.

"It was a game that we probably deserved to take three points from but didn't," he said.

"I can't stand here today and overly-criticse the players, other than for a lack of nous in terms of putting the ball in the net in the final third.

"We had enough chances tonight to win a few games, but it wasn't to be. Credit to Plymouth, it was a long trip for them, but [we're feeling] huge disappointment.

"We kept going right until the end, but it just wasn't to be tonight.

"What I will say is that if we continue with the same intensity we showed tonight, we'll win a lot of matches, we'll be fine.

"There's a long way to go, and the players are saying that as well. There are a lot of games and we have to play on the front foot as we did tonight."

Rovers return to action with a home game against Portsmouth on Saturday (kick-off 3pm).
