Blackburn failed to find the target again as they produced one of the goalless football results of the midweek action in the Championship. The hosts dominated the game but their shortcomings in front of the goal were apparent for yet another game. Joe Rankin-Costello and Sam Gallagher both missed golden opportunities to take the lead but both missed.

Managers Reaction 

Blackburn’s Tony Mowbray: “Performance, really good. Dominated. I don’t think they had a shot at our goal. We missed three amazing opportunities to score a goal. We dominated in all areas I think, against a team that has won five on the bounce and is dangerous. I thought we restricted them to nothing really, so we’re left really frustrated. We’ve said it, we have to be more ruthless. Chances came and the chances went. On another day it could have been 3-0 and I don’t think they would have complained. We’ve got two more opportunities at home over the next week to try and secure three points in those games.”

Millwall’s Gary Rowett: “Certainly content with the point. We knew it was going to be a difficult game, on the back of traveling up here previously and having a lot of games, expending an awful lot of energy with a really limited squad at the moment. We’ve got so many injuries. Blackburn started well, moved the ball really well but you could see we couldn’t quite get near enough. I couldn’t be critical of the players. They’ve given me absolutely everything in these last few games.”
