That is the verdict of centre half Tom Anderson who admitted his frustration at the result which saw Rovers stretch their winless run in the league to five matches.

“I thought we did enough to win it at times,” Anderson said.

“We got in good areas and I think looking back at their goal it’s offside so we’re a little bit hard done to there.

“It was a scrappy game and you’ve got to give Accrington some credit for that.

“But I did think we did enough to win the game.

“We've just got to make sure we do what we did for 85 or 90 minutes of the game.

“We've got to make sure we do it for 95, 100 minutes if we need to.

“We’ve got to make sure we stay resolute and keep the back door shut.”

Anderson admitted that, despite the calls for offside for Accrington’s equaliser, he was disappointed with the manner of the goal which came after a failure from Rovers to clear a corner.

“We didn’t win the first contact so it’s something we need to look back at and make sure next time we do," he said.

“I think a lot of the balls that did come in, we dealt with them.

“We’re disappointed that we didn’t get the result and come away with all three points.

“We've got to take the positives out of the game.

"At times I felt we got ninto good positions and it was just we lacked the quality a little bit.

“We take the positives from the game and sometimes when you don't win you make sure you don't lose,

“We get the point and then focus on Peterborough on Boxing Day.”
