WATCH | Grant McCann discusses the FA Cup stalemate against Accrington Stanley

4 November 2023

Grant McCann praised a brilliant first half for Rovers but admitted his frustration at the failure to make it count in the Emirates FA Cup tie with Accrington Stanley.

Rovers face a replay at the Wham Stadium after twice being pegged back in a 2-2 draw with Stanley.

A Kelvin Mellor own goal gave Rovers an early lead but they could not extend the advantage despite dominating throughout the first half. Harrison Biggins' thunderbolt put Rovers back in front after Shaun Whalley equalised for the visitors but substitute Seamus Conneely made sure of the replay late on.

Speaking to the media afterwards, McCann spoke of his pride in the team but bemoaned errors in the build-up to Accrington's equalisers.
