Having played his part in Blackburn’s draw with Preston on Saturday Elliott Bennett looked to the positive signs being shown, but did admit to a level of disappointment after Rovers had to settle for a point.

Bennett was positive of Blackburn being able to see off Lancashire rivals Preston heading into this game at Ewood Park after the Norwich and Fulham results.

The fact this didn’t happen was frustrating but there are reasons to be positive for the midfielder, who had put Rovers back on level terms when he fired home from 20 yards

He told the Official Website.

‘After the Norwich and the Fulham games we were looking to come into the home game and get the three points to make the two on the road even better,’ Bennett told Radio Rovers. ‘So there is massive disappointment really. Obviously you won’t want to drop points but there are positive signs that we are disappointed that we’ve been to Norwich and Fulham and dominated a Preston team who are six points off the play-offs.’

Blackburn boss Tony Mowbray had spoken about a need to start turning these draws into victories with Bennett echoing such thoughts.

He finished by also saying conceding deep into added time made it all the more ‘gut-wrenching’ for Rovers.

‘We need to get the points on the board, it is alright having good performances and saying we’re dominating games, to concede in the manner that we did in the last minute is obviously gut-wrenching.’
