Mowbray delighted with Blackburn’s response

Blackburn Rovers boss Tony Mowbray has heaped praise on his team after they secured a 1-1 draw against West Brom.

Blackburn Rovers boss Tony Mowbray has heaped praise on his team after they secured a 1-1 draw against West Brom.

The Lancashire outfit had fallen behind at The Hawthorns when Craig Dawson headed home in the first half.

However, Harrison Reed then responded in the 71st minute as Blackburn looked to push on.

Mowbray was then handed a huge injury blow when goalkeeper David Raya suffered a facial injury when he clashed with Jay Rodriguez.

The Rovers boss had already lost Charlie Mulgrew and Jack Rodwell and he was forced to play with 10 men for the last 17 minutes.

Speaking after the game, Mowbray said he was immensely proud of his players.

He told BBC Sport: ‘To have no defenders and then finish with 10 men and no goalkeeper on the pitch, it was a heroic performance to get a point.

‘My team deserve a lot of credit for the way they dug in against the adversity they faced. It could have been a hard luck story for us.

‘Even if we had lost by a couple of goals I would still have been saying they were heroic. So I was delighted with the point and our spirit. That is how we work.

‘It was a bit of class from Harrison Reed, who was immense, to get our equaliser. We even thought we could win it before the incident with the goalkeeper.’
