Tony Mowbray was disappointed the quality of his side’s two goals weren’t rewarded with three points.

But the Rovers boss says there are still positives to take from a first-half display in which they dominated and scored twice through Adam Armstrong and Elliott Bennett.

Both came within the opening 17 minutes of the match and created by the excellence of Bradley Dack who has contributed 20 goals, scoring 14 and laying on six assists, in his debut season at Ewood Park.

Dack sent Armstrong, who made it five goals in his last six matches, through with a lovely ball before his reverse pass allowed Bennett to fire home his second of the week.

Pleased with his side’s attacking display, Mowbray said: “It was a great run and finish from (Adam) Armstrong for the first goal and a great reverse pass from Brad (Dack) for Elliott Bennett’s goal.

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

“We talked in the team meeting and had done some work, we trained on the pitch on Saturday, on the transition.

“That’s why you pick Armstrong in the team because he has that scintillating pace.

“Then Dack can bring the quality and the guile, Graham has the strength and if it wasn’t Armstrong then it would be Harry Chapman who is starting to train this week, Antonsson, that type of footballer who can be incisive and run in behind teams.

“You need that element and I think the balance of the team was all right.

“Lots of positives, let’s keep going, look at the next game with a real positivity and believing that we can beat anyone on our day and we have to have 10 big days between now and May 5.”

Mowbray was disappointed with the two goals his side conceded after the break, as Will Grigg and Max Power levelled for the hosts in what was a frenetic top of the table clash.

Despite being pegged back in the second half, Rovers still lead the way with 10 games to play.

And Mowbray said: “I thought our desire to win was massive against Wigan and we should have got all three points.

“We just have to win as many as we can, pick up as many points as we can and keep going.”
