McCann pleased with spirit shown at Blackpool

Grant McCann felt a point was the least Rovers deserved after they drew 1-1 with Blackpool in Sky Bet League One.

Tommy Rowe’s striker into a top corner cancelled out Michael Nottingham’s opener, and the manager says his side reacted well to going behind.

He said: “I thought the energy we played at throughout the game was very good, we pressed them all over the pitch which was pleasing to see.

“If we can continue that then we will look back on this as a good point, it’s a very tough place to come no matter what the conditions are.

“It was a character building response to the defeat at Wimbledon, they all put a shift in to get something out of the game.”

After Rowe produced a moment of magic to get Rovers back into the game, McCann says he has put himself in the frame for more league starts.

He added: “It was brilliant to see Tommy back with a goal, I’ve said it before that he’s been unfortunate with the form of Herbie Kane and Ali Crawford.

“He’s given me a decision to make for the Barnsley game, he was excellent and that’s the Tommy I’ve known for a long time.”
