Dack deflated after draw

Bradley bagged his tenth of the season but was in no mood for celebration

Rovers talisman Bradley Dack admitted his goal meant little to him as Tony Mowbray's side let a lead slip for the second time in three days.

Dack's devastating drive put Rovers in command and looked to be the difference at a soaking New York Stadium against Rotherham.

But there was late drama with David Ball nipping in to prod into the net in the final minute of normal time.

It was a bitter blow for Rovers, who had largely bossed the game, and Dack was left frustrated to come away with only a point.

"On a personal note it's nice to get to ten goals but it's obviously so disappointing to concede so late and not hold on to win the game," the 24-year-old reflected.

"We conceded from a set piece and it feels like a defeat to be honest. But it's another game unbeaten and we go again in the league in a couple of weeks against Shrewsbury with the aim of getting back on track.

"I think we're all disappointed in drawing three and winning one over Christmas, particularly considering we should have won those three draws. It's a bitter pill to swallow.

"It was a physical game. They're strong and quick and I got knocked about a bit. I don't think I got one free kick, which is disappointing. It's tough when you are trying your hardest and not getting those sort of decisions."

And on his goal, Dack always felt confident when bearing down on home goalkeeper Marek Rodak.

"I noticed the 'keeper was set when I went through on goal. I just thought I'd lift it and fortunately it's gone in the top of the net," he concluded.
