Rowett: We won't dwell on it

17 March 2014

Brewers boss taking the positives

The Brewers conceded in the 97th minute to end their hopes of winning a third game in a row, but Rowett is pleased that they've now gone five games unbeaten.

"We can look at it as eight points from the last four games, and being unbeaten in five. The timing of the goal is frustrating and is my only argument, I can't argue with them scoring as they deserved it.

"It's just frustrating that on the back of a run of really hard games that we've conceded in the 97th minute.

"We're not negative about it, we're just disappointed that it wasn't three points. It could have been ten points from four which is a magnificent response at this stage of the season. 

"As it was, we've ended up with a draw but I've told that players that we can't let it affect us. We've done lots of good things and we've been very good in most of the games recently. We have nine cup finals really, so next Saturday will be another one," said Rowett.

The Brewers are next in action at second placed Scunthorpe on Saturday, and Rowett is already relishing the opportunity to get back on track following Saturday's sucker punch.

"It's a difficult game, we all know that. In some ways I'd rather we go away to somewhere like Scunthorpe than be at home to a team we're expected to beat. We've played against some really good sides this season and been very good against them.

 "It's important that we kick on again and put on another really good performance next Saturday. We won't dwell on the Wimbledon result, we're a positive bunch and we'll go again."
