An injury to Bobby Grant marred last night’s 2-2 draw at Blackburn Rovers which Fleetwood Town head coach Uwe Rosler dubbed a result that felt like a victory, writes ROSIE SWARBRICK.
Fleetwood twice bounced back in the second half to earn a point at Ewood Park.
Bradley Dack gave Rovers the lead after they punished Town loanee Aiden O’Neill for giving away possession.
O’Neill then recovered to grab a goal 12 minutes after Dack’s 52nd minute opener.
That was before Rovers’ Joe Nuttall marked his first appearance off the bench with a debut goal in the 77th minute for Tony Mowbray’s side.
However, Town’s late goals continued to flow as Wes Burns ended his 19-month drought to bundle home George Glendon’s corner seven minutes from time.
Speaking about Grant Rosler said: “I don’t know (how it happened).
“At half-time he did not look good, he is on crutches and that tells you a lot.
“I think, first half, the game was like we expected.
“Blackburn had a lot of the ball, our shape and our determination and our grit kept us well in the game.
“I don’t think they created a lot of chances. I would have liked us to counter in that period a little bit better but in general I was happy.
“Young Aiden O’Neill did really well until the square ball; against such an experienced team like Blackburn they punish you with that.
“After that I felt we were clearly the better team; we took over and passed the ball really well.
“We had 12 attempts, they had 11, we had seven on target, they had four.
“We got a well deserved point; I see it like three points for us.”
