Striker admits the draw feels more like a defeat as Town again conceded an injury time equaliser

Conor Sammon echoed the views of a frustrated dressing-room, admitting the draw with Blackburn feels more like a defeat as Blue conceded in the final minute for the second game running.

The big striker put in a fine performance and was twice brought down by Matt Kilgallon- which saw the Rovers defender sent off- before watching strike partner David McGoldrick curl home a free-kick.

However the visitors snatched a share of the spoils as Ben Marshall also found the back of the net from a set-piece, leaving Town with just one point from their afternoon’s effort instead of all three.

“That’s the second game in a row where we’ve concede in the last minute to deny us a win, so it does feel like a defeat,” Conor told the Club website.

“We created enough chances to win the game, which is the frustrating thing. Everybody is disappointed not to have won the game, but we will pick ourselves up and go again.

McGoldrick: free-kick goal

“We had a few injuries today but we adjusted well and I certainly think we deserved to win the game.

“Once they went down to 10 men and we got the goal to go in front, we should have gone on to win the game but it was one of those frustrating days where we just couldn’t get that second goal to kill the game off.

“We’ve got two big games coming up this week though and we have to focus on those matches now, starting with Cardiff on Tuesday night.”
