Blackburn Rovers were left frustrated by Rotherham United as Millers keeper Marek Rodak put on an inspired performance to win a point for Paul Warne’s side, with the score finishing 1-1.

Bradley Dack scored his eight goal of the Championship season, meaning he has been directly involved in 15 goals in 15 games this season. His 81st minute goal came six minutes after Michael Smith put Rotherham ahead with fifteen minutes to go.

Rovers will be disappointed to come away from Saturday’s game with just a single point after keeping 66% possession, taking 25 shots with nine on target, while Rotherham had 13, and scored with their only effort on target.

“Frustration is probably the main word,” Mowbray told the Lancashire Telegraph.

“I think we struggled a bit with their directness and long throws and we didn’t deal very well with the second balls in the first half. We managed to resolve that at half time and played how we want to play.

“The second half was as good in possession and creating chances as we have been this season.

“There’s a real frustration that we weren’t able to score more than one goal.

“A real frustration with the officials that they allowed the time wasting to roll on and on and they only put five minutes up. But they are just little moans from me because the frustration is still in my belly.

“There was a lot of good play, good individual play, got in to a lot of good areas, created chances but it wasn’t to be. They went and scored from their only shot on target.

“It’s football. They have been to the Riverside recently and got a 0-0, at Preston they drew 1-1, they are very honest, hardworking, together football team and we have to respect that as they got another point on the road.

“I thought we controlled the game, got it wide, Adam Armstrong had a hot day today and we are ultimately disappointed we could only get one point.

“We are left frustrated. I thought we could have scored again, they were hanging again.

“We had the chances to score again, but it wasn’t to be.”
