Rovers looked to be heading back to the top of the table as Abdulai Bell-Baggie's first career league goal gave the home side a 29th-minute lead.

But back came County and Neal Bishop headed in a second-half equaliser that gives Kiwomya hope that there is more to come from his side.

"We are sat in the changing room disappointed," Kiwomya said. "They are a good team, but I thought we deserved to win.

"We asked all the questions and I thought we were the better team especially in the second half. Maybe we just didn't have that rub of the green that you need at times.

"Overall it's disappointing but we'll have to take the point. Coming here is hard, at half-time they were top of the league, so it's a point that we'll have to take.

"I put a little bit more pressure on myself to do even better since taking over last Friday. I enjoy it. There a lot of good players in that changing room, but sometimes you need that killer instinct.

"I think we're down to 12 games now so the games that are coming up are vitally important.

"But we can do it. We've got good enough players. I'm confident we can have a late charge, we've still got a good chance."

et again Barcelona try to convince the world that they only play the most virtuous of football. I've never seen a team so willing and able to dish out lumps but feel so self-righteous that no opposition player should ever have the audacity to tackle them.
