Rovers manager Tony Mowbray says frustration was the overriding feeling following Sunday's 2-2 draw with Wigan, but believes there are plenty of positives to take from the game.

The Blues raced into a two-goal lead thanks to goals from Adam Armstrong and Elliott Bennett but were pegged back during the second half and had to settle for a point.

Speaking after the game, Mowbray said: "We're frustrated today, it feels like a defeat.

"I thought we showed our quality and class in the first half and have to take the positives from that.

"We’re a really good side and have to see this season out now, we have to win matches to get to our target so let’s see how we go.

"We can’t do anything about today’s game now, it’s frustrating but there were some great moments and we scored two great goals.

"If anything, it was a difficult game because it was so stop-start, but never mind.

"It was an interesting one for the neutral I’m sure but a frustrating one for us because we didn’t take all three points when we deserved them."

The boss added that he was disappointed by the manner of the goals conceded, saying it makes the result more difficult to take.

"If Wigan had scored some great goals by carving us open and looking like a great team, you’ve got to accept it, but the goals conceded were really poor," he added.

"It’s disappointing but I’m not going to get angry with the players, I thought their desire to win the match was massive. We have to get better defensively, though."
