Souness Upset At City Equaliser

The Rovers boss felt that there was a push in the back on defender Lucas Neill as City striker Stern John rose at the far post to head home an 83rd minute goal for the visitors which cancelled out Andrew Cole's first half strike.

"We're disappointed to have conceded a goal because I've seen the television angles on it and it doesn't show the actual foul take place," he said after the 1-1 draw.

"What it does show you is Lucas Neill stumbling in a way which is very obviously a push in the back. That's what my eyes told me at the time, that's what I believe happened and from that they've equalised.

"I didn't think it was a goal at the time. It should have been a foul, but as the manager of Blackburn Rovers you would expect me to say that.

"But I think that's just a fitting end to what has been a frustrating season."
