IT was a frustrating night for supporters at Ewood Park on Wednesday night as Blackburn Rovers saw their play-off hopes suffer a slight setback following a 0-0 draw against struggling Stoke City.

Tony Mowbray's men were looking for three points to boost their top six hopes but despite creating the better chances, had to settle for the draw.

The result, on the back of the 2-2 draw at Brentford last weekend, means Rovers remain in eighth place - four points behind Preston North End in sixth.

Rovers host play-off rivals Swansea City on Saturday (3pm ko).
