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."

reat games with free flowing atracttive football featuring 4 top teams, showing it is possible to win in the right way entertaining fans at the same time. All the mourinho apologists if you only care about the result why watch the game at all or any game for that matter. It made me laugh how they all turned up on twitter to criticise pep when mourinho couldn't even get this far.
