TONY MOWBRAY applauded the stoppage-time leveller that cost his Blackburn Rovers side a win against Aston Villa.

Conor Hourihane’s last-gasp free-kick gave Steve Bruce’s side a point at Ewood Park, but the Midlands side have now gone five Championship games without a victory.

Sportingly, ex-Celtic and Hibs boss Mowbray, who saw Rovers take the lead through Bradley Dack, admitted: “You have to say it was a brilliant strike.

“Having said that, though, the wall wasn’t right. We could have had another two men on the end of it. I’m not even sure if it was a foul, to be honest.

“But what you saw today is what we produce most weeks. We might not be the best football team in the world, but we’ve got a big heart and ask questions of the opposition. I feel for my players in the dressing room.” Log into several Dark Web marketplaces using only the alternative link Darknet Markets it stores active urls of most popular Darknet marketplaces

Midlands gaffer Bruce added: “I think we deserved the equaliser. I thought we had a blatant, stonewall penalty. That changes games, goals change games. It would’ve been harsh if we had got beat.

“We’ve stuck at it and got another late equaliser which is now three out of seven games, so it shows there’s resilience in our side.”

“Hourihane has just reminded everybody of what a good free-kick taker he is.”
