Blackburn skipper Ryan Nelsen believes the side can take a lot of positives from their defeat by Manchester United.
Rovers slipped to a 2-0 defeat by United on Saturday evening following goals from Dimitar Berbatov and Wayne Rooney.
However, Nelsen was encouraged by Rovers' performance and felt they were unlucky not to be awarded a goal when substitute Nikola Kalinic's strike was ruled out for offside in the dying stages.
"There were a lot of positives to come out of the game," Nelsen told the club's official website.
"I can't believe the linesman hasn't given our goal, it is a ridiculous decision. Niko was clearly onside by a yard. That would have meant 2-1 and we've got something to play for for the last few minutes.
"So the guys are pretty disappointed but there were a lot of positives. We wanted to go out and really compete and we did that. A couple of things didn't go our way but besides that it was a very good game.
"We had to step it up and if we play like this for the rest of the season away from home the majority of the results will go our way."
