Danny Graham insists Rovers can't dwell on the past and must ensure full focus is put into garnering three points against Walsall on Tuesday night.
Graham continued his fine form at Ewood with a late equaliser against a Cobblers side who frustrated the hosts at times.
And the experienced frontman still maintains Rovers have their destiny in their own hands, but must ensure they get the job done in midweek against the Saddlers.
"We have to keep going. We've got 18 massive games to go," he told iFollow Rovers.
"The fans certainly understood the situation and I think that's off the back of the results we've had.
"They know to stick with us and they know we're going to create chances and hopefully peg teams back if we do go behind.
"They're going to be a massive part of what we do in the last 18 games and hopefully every game at Ewood they keep getting right behind us."
And reflecting on Northampton and previewing Walsall - with Rovers knowing a win will put them in the top two again - Graham knows they have to make it count this time around in what is a busy week for the club with a visit to Plymouth on the horizon, too.
"It feels like a bit of a missed opportunity, but we just need to concentrate on ourselves," he added.
"There's going to be a lot of twists and turns before the end of the season and come May we want to make sure we're in that top two.
"We've already mentioned that we've got another game on Tuesday night, we're all looking forward to it now and hopefully we can put it right and get three points and then we go again next weekend away at Plymouth."
