A feeling of frustration, says Danny

Graham left disappointed that his header wasn't the springboard to a Rovers victory

A disappointed Danny Graham may have hit his third goal in his last four Ewood Park outings, but it wasn't enough as Rovers picked up a point at home to Northampton

Graham nodded home with 16 minutes to go to potentially set up a barnstorming finale at Ewood against the Cobblers, but it wasn't to be for Rovers, despite plenty of possession.

And despite continuing his fine scoring streak, the 32-year-old was left ruing missed chances against the Cobblers.

"It's very frustrating. I think the amount of chances we had and opportunities we created, I feel as though we deserved to win the game, but it wasn't to be," the striker reflected when talking to iFollow Rovers after the game.

"We go again. We've got another game on Tuesday and it's another game unbeaten.

"The match was very similar (to the game at Northampton). Obviously they went in front down there as well and after half-time I thought we came out and did ever so well.

"It was one of those game where it reminded me a bit of Plymouth (at home), where we looked destined only to get the point and that was the case.

"But like I said, it's another point, it's another step in the right direction, we're 17 unbeaten and we go again, it's as simple as that."

So are there positives to take or a feeling of flatness after the draw? Well it's actually a bit of both, according to Graham, who is now up to 10 goals for the season.

"Obviously we're flat, because we wanted to pick up the three points, but on a positive note, even when teams go 1-0 up, we never feel as though we're going to get beat.

"We always feel as though there's going to be chances and we're going to score and sometimes we'll go on to win the game," he concluded.
