Blackburn remain unbeaten under Tony Mowbray after a late equaliser against Cardiff but the Rovers boss was been left frustrated we couldn’t collect all three points.

Sam Gallagher had been denied an opener for Blackburn as he hit the crossbar shortly before Cardiff’s Kenneth Zohore put the visitors ahead – this coming off a cross from former Rovers forward Junior Hoilett – at the break.

The Blackburn pressure grew in the second half with a point eventually rescued from this 1-1 draw at Ewood Park in added time with Derrick Williams scoring.

Commenting in his news conference after the game Mowbray was quoted by the BBC as saying.

‘It’s frustrating for me that we didn’t take three points.’

However, seeing the bigger picture the Blackburn boss – we remain 20th and two points above trouble – admitted he would have taken the seven points Rovers gained from the three Ewood games before they were played.

The focus is also on what we do and not others.

‘Before we’d kicked a ball, with this run of three games, we’d have probably taken seven points if you’d offered it us. We put it in the bag and move on. It’s about what we do for ourselves, you can’t rely on anyone else to keep losing football matches. We have to do it ourselves.’
