Sam Vokes scored the equaliser a minute from time when he headed in a free-kick from fellow substitute Junior Stanislas after Jordan Rhodes had scored the opener after 68 minutes.

"We defended better, higher up on the pitch in the second half," said Berg. "We'd been defending those free-kicks and corners all day long fantastically well.

"I have to give credit to the back four and goalkeeper and two central midfield players - fantastic.

"We were put under pressure a little bit too many times in the first half and they saved us, made sure that we were still in the game.

"But we were giving away a few too many free-kicks in dangerous areas and towards the end it was one free-kick too many."

Blackburn have now won just one game in seven attempts but Berg feels they are improving and will pick up another victory soon.

"We were very, very close to getting a great result," he added.

"If we took a little bit better care of the ball, (had) a little bit more mental strength, then we could have won the game. But 1-1 here is not my worst result."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
