Manager Lee Clark left Rotherham with mixed emotions after Blackpool’s 1-1 draw.

Pool have drawn three of their last four games under Clark, who is yet to taste victory with his new club.

The Pool boss said: “When you go behind so late I’d take a point. The frustrating thing for me is that we conceded at a time when we were on top.

“We had good possession at times, and it looked as though if anyone was going to win it would be us.

“It’s a really poor goal we conceded. We crossed the ball, the keeper caught it and we didn’t touch it again until it was in our net.

“We said we needed to believe in ourselves and we’d get something from the game, and that’s what we did.

“We had a bit of luck go our way but if you don’t work hard you won’t get that luck.”

That stroke of luck was a howler from Millers keeper Alan Collin, resulting in Steven Davies’ first goal of the season.

Clark added: “We are delighted for Steven because he’s going to be a big player for us when we get him back fit, so it will do his confidence the world of good.”

Clark gave full debuts to Kevin Foley, Nyron Nosworthy and Stuart O’Keefe, and he added: “I thought the new boys made good contributions. Stuart played for Crystal Palace in their second Premier League game of the season against West Ham, and this was his first competitive game since.

“Foley is the same and Nyron has played a few internationals for Jamaica but nothing more, so I think they have done well under the circumstances.
