Jack Redshaw gave the home side the lead and Rovers survived a first-half onslaught before Eliot Richards secured a 1-1 draw shortly after the interval.

Ward said: "It was a good, hard earned point. We had the worst possible start against a team who were in form and beat the league leaders last week so anything we got from here was a good result and every point is important for us at the moment .

"At half-time I said we had played well despite being a goal down and I just told the lads to be a bit more confident about themselves and attack their back four.

"We did that and got an early goal to give us a lift and built on that with a much better display in the second half.

"It was one of those draws that could have gone either way and both sides had chances to win it but I have to be happy with the spirit we showed. We are a young team but we are learning all the time and it was a good performance."

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
