Brendan Rodgers: I thought we should have had a penalty


Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers was full of praise for his players as well as Blackburn Rovers after today's goalless draw in the FA Cup.

The Reds will have to add a trip to Ewood Park after a match that was stopped for more than eight minutes after defender Martin Skrtel suffered a nasty head injury.

And the Northern Irishman believes referee Andre Marriner should have awarded his side a penalty when Matt Kilgallon stopped Adam Lallana in the first half of the game.

"It's been difficult here against Championship teams, Blackburn deserve credit," Rodgers told the BBC.

"But my players also deserve credit, they were missing sharpness but they kept going and tried to create chances.

"It wasn't to be but we will look to get into the semi-final when we play away.

"When you have that many bodies behind the ball it's difficult. I thought we should have had a penalty on Adam Lallana and if you get a goal in the first 20 minutes it opens the game up.

"We kept a clean sheet and still have big confidence. We just lacked that final ball.

"We don't play until next Monday and that gives us a chance to prepare well. They put so much into the game but couldn't find the breakthrough."
