Blackburn Rovers manager Sam Allardyce couldn't fault Rovers' effort or commitment against Everton on Wednesday Evening but cursed the missed chances in the 0-0 draw.
Jason Roberts missed the best chance of the match allowing Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard to make a save (and a fairly comfortable one at that) when put through one-on-one with Stephen Warnock clipping the crossbar with a free kick from out wide (which was probably a cross anyway) and substitute Aaron Mokoena heading wide as chances went begging for Rovers.
Allardyce told Sky Sports: "The effort was great. The commitment, I can't fault it. Unfortunately we just needed a quality finish in the second half with the chances we got.
"You're not going to get many against Everton, who are very, very good home and away now. They came in the second half for us and we didn't convert one.
"That's probably why we ended up with the nil-nil. I think that from our point of view it was too many chances missed tonight.
"I thought our fitness was really good. We went right till the very, very end to try and win it. But chances have got to be taken unfortunately when you play at this level."
There were again positive signs, and things that we can build on but we can't afford to miss chances like we did (in a relegation battle or not) particularly at Ewood Park as these might come back to haunt us later in the season. However, a point against a side that might have an outside chance of a Champions League place isn't the worse thing in the world is it!!!
