Four: The number of goals in the draw with Huddersfield Town, the number of games Rovers have now gone without a win, how many of their 12 games they have won, and also the amount of times Tony Mowbray used the word ‘consistency’ in the opening three minutes of his post-match interview.

Before Rovers can search for consistency across the course of a season, they must find it within matches. The opening 45 minutes here, the second half against Nottingham Forest earlier this month, the opening stages of last months win at Reading, put those together, and you would have the complete performance.

Unfortunately, too often they have been paired with passive, insipid, and sometimes even dour displays.

Two wins and nine points from seven Ewood matches doesn’t strike you of a record of a side that is looking to push towards the top six. Rovers have already reflected on too many missed opportunities and frustrating afternoons on their home turf. It has become something of a norm.

However, this could quite easily have been a verdict on a marriage made in heaven, the Dack and Holtby show. It should have been the time Rovers drew the line under the long wait for a win when going behind (last achieved in April 2018) and the record of not winning when the opponents have scored (v West Brom on New Year’s Day).

Fans have craved seeing Lewis Holtby and Bradley Dack together from the start and the pair didn’t disappoint in the first half. A goal and an assist for both, they looked for each other at every given opportunity, with Holtby at his busy best coming in from the right with Dack never far from the thick of the action.

The platform was there, the opportunity presented itself, but Rovers couldn’t seize it. Dack was within inches on the stretch of turning in an Armstrong shot at 2-1, while defender Jaden Brown had his heart in his mouth as his header flashed just over the top of his own bar from a Stewart Downing cross. That was as close as they would come to a third goal.

Where the Rovers substitutes failed, Juninho Bacuna made quite the impact for Huddersfield. He made the Rovers midfield look leggy and lacklustre, sounding a warning when flashing wide a 25-yard effort before bludgeoning his way in to the box and firing off a left foot shot that somehow found its way beyond a flat-footed Christian Walton.

Bacuna even went close to winning it, his run and shot deflected just over off the boot of Derrick Williams, before the Rovers defender made a superb last-ditch tackle to deny Karlan Grant and bail out Bradley Johnson whose misplaced pass was cut out.

Rovers failed to seize the initiative back as any thoughts of a possible late winner evaporated. This wasn’t the first time you’ve been left feeling underwhelmed by the closing stages in which few clear-cut opportunities were created and the opposition goalkeeper untroubled.

They had earlier wrestled back the momentum having trailed to a 12th minute penalty. That came about as Elliott Bennett, on his attempts to win the ball on the floor, made contact with Adama Diakhaby who was quick to take a tumble.

Referee Darren Bond, who mystified both sets of fans with a series of odd calls, pointed to the spot and Grant slammed home the spot-kick.

Rovers didn’t let the feeling of injustice halt them, as they began to move the ball around the pitch, Kamil Grabara saving from Adam Armstrong before Holtby levelled when turning in an excellent reverse Dack pass as Huddersfield were caught playing out from the back.

Holtby, and Rovers, should have had a second after the half hour, only to drag his shot just wide of the target when played clean through by Johnson.

They didn’t have to wait long for a second though, Dack expertly wrapping his foot around a shot that curled in to the far corner as Holtby returned the favour with an assist.

This was as good as it got, with the excellent link-up in the first half something of a false dawn.

But Tony Mowbray is right. Rovers, at their best, they are more than a match for most. They have built a squad with enough quality to challenge.

But yet, we remain unconvinced. They are as likely to go six unbeaten as they are six without a win. Which Rovers you get, often you don’t know from one half to the next.

Even with the defensive injuries, there is a good side in there. But we still wait to see it over a prolonged spell.
