Jon Dahl Tomasson was frustrated with the manner of the goal that saw Rovers throw away two points in stoppage time.

The head coach felt it was a clear handball by Coventry City goalkeeper Ben Wilson when bundling the ball over the line from a 95th minute set plays.

Rovers had looked set for three points, and to move up to fifth in the table, after Sam Gallagher headed in a Joe Rankin-Costello cross six minutes before the break.

Tomasson’s side had dominated the first half and were good value for their lead, but failed to manage a shot on target after the break as the Sky Blues looked for a response.

Aynsley Pears made one save to deny Hamer’s effort from the edge of the box, but set pieces always looked the most likely route back into the game for the visitors.

On the late goal, Tomasson said: “We are disappointed to draw the game by conceding in the last kick of the game. We should have dealt with the goal better, I don't want to talk about the goal. 

“They're a good side and an in-form side but we controlled big parts of the game.

“The first half, we had good control without creating the best chances.

“We had the most dangerous moments. We scored a brilliant goal and to make this game safe you need to score a second goal to win it.

“We look at the results from yesterday and today, we have plenty to play for.

“Four games to go and we are in an excellent position.”

Tomasson was asked about whether VAR should be introduced into the Championship, and while he believes it will in time, he doesn’t feel it was a decision that required it.

“It’s always a good question,” Tomasson said.

“Don’t you think it will come over time? I think so.

“More or less in every country in Europe, you don’t have it in every country but over time it will be there.

“I don’t think you needed it today regarding the position where things happen, I think you should be able to see it properly. I think so.”

The point was still enough to move to Rovers back into the top six with four games to go, with Tomasson continuing to stress the positives.

He added: “We always need to try and see a positive point of view, we’re in a great position, four games to go, one game in hand regarding a lot of the opponents and we’re in the play-offs which is great, we will chase it and we should enjoy it.

“You will see the last rounds lots of crazy results, that’s normal, and you have that in this great league.”

Gallagher’s two first half headers were the only attempts that Rovers had on target, but the one that did find the corner was impressive in the eyes of the head coach.

He said: “It was an excellent goal.

“We switched play twice in that moment and a great cross and a great run from Ryan to create space for Sam Gallagher and a good header, a perfect goal.

“The control we had in the first half was good in a top game.

“Second half we should have done better and in moments when we could have been able to create something we had a bad pass but second half we were too deep.”
