Verdict: A familiar tale as Rovers punished for not taking chances


When Lewis Wing equalised from a late free-kick to give struggling Rotherham a point, it was a feeling that we have become all too familiar with.

Rovers had plenty of chances throughout the match and realistically, the points should have been in the bag before Rotherham scored.

We’ve seen it so many times with Rovers and the predictability factor come into it. When we miss a couple of chances, you know what is going to happen.

Credit does go to Rotherham’s Blackman for his performance between the sticks, making a couple of impressive saves, but these still shouldn’t have mattered in the grand scheme of things.

The lack of killer instinct to go and finish a match off is one of several factors that will need to be resolved before a play-off push even comes into question.

The fact we, as supporters, are bemoaning the same issues each week is a concern, and it shows just how far off our ambitions this season we have been.

It has truly been a season none of us will remember in a hurry. We showed such promise in the early months and dreams of a play-off push were on the cards, but the way it has come tumbling down since February has been nothing short of abysmal.

I’ve always dreaded the summer coming and spending three months without Rovers, but for the first time that I can remember, the break can’t come soon enough.

Thanks for reading, and for your support across the season.
