Elliott Bennett says plenty of positives can be taken despite a frustrating draw against Rotherham United at Ewood Park.

Bennett, who started the game at right back before ending it in the centre of midfield, went close to finding a winning goal for the hosts during a dominant second half display.
 
And whilst the 29-year-old was gutted to only take a point from the clash, he also feels that there are more positives than negatives from the draw with the Millers.
 
“I’d rather have won 1-0 playing horrifically, like me did last week against QPR. Today we played much better, created a lot of chances but could only draw," he told iFollow Rovers.
 
“The over-riding feeling is one of disappointment as we should have won the game. I think once things settle down and we next get back in, we’ll probably look at it and feel we were unfortunate not to have won.
 
“Credit to them though, they did what they are good at from throw ins and corners. The second half was better from us and was exactly the way we want to play.
 
“Their ‘keeper makes a few good saves, they put blocks in and we had some poor finishing. At half time, after hearing the gaffer’s instructions, we really implemented what he wanted.
 
“I can’t really put their goal into words. It felt like a kick in-between the legs following our dominance and I think they scored with their only shot on target in the second half.
 
“The whole game, if you were a supporter your neck would have only been turning one way.
 
“Even at 1-0 down in the 90th minute, I always back us to get something from a game.
 
“If we play like we did in the second half all season then I’m sure we’ll win more games than we don’t. There are positives to take."
