Blackburn Rovers boss Tony Mowbray felt VAR would’ve overturned two penalty decisions in their 2-2 draw with Brentford.

Referee Tim Robinson pointed to the spot for either side at Griffin Park in what both managers felt were ‘discussable’ decisions.

Adam Armstrong was awarded a spot kick for the visitors just after the break when John Buckley was brought down by goalkeeper David Raya, while Mads Reorslev was upended by Lewis Travis at the other end.

Armstrong's first half strike and early second half penalty gave Rovers a two goal lead before the Bees came back through a fine Ollie Watkins’ effort and Said Benrahma’s spot kick, which left Mowbray frustrated.

“The majority of the game we managed them well,” The Rovers boss said.

“We know how talented they are, they build pressure.

“At 2-0 the crowd were about to turn on them, there were a few grumbles behind me, but a bit of magic from their centre forward and a brilliant strike got them back on side.

“We have a frustration with the second goal, it looked a looked a ridiculously soft penalty, but there you go.

“VAR today would’ve been 1-1.”

The result leaves Rovers with just one defeat in six and just two points outside the play-offs, but for Mowbray it could’ve and possibly could’ve been three.

“Brentford is a tough place to come, a good team, well coached, with super individuals, and for long spells we were on top, so I leave frustrated and disappointed not to leave with three pouts.

“Take away their front three, and you have a chance.”
