Parry is now confident Rovers can keep clear of the relegation places and he said: "I was really hoping we would win because I thought we were a little hard done to during the game at Southampton (3-0 defeat in December).
"The lads did magnificently and can take a lot of pride from the performance. If they apply themselves as they did (against Southampton) for the rest of the season we should not have any relegation fears.
He added: "It was an excellent first goal of the season for Brooms, and Thomas-Moore could not have struck the penalty any better.
"The referee got big decisions wrong for both sides. I thought there could have easily been penalties awarded at each end earlier in the game."
