Rovers manager Tony Mowbray was delighted with the positive impact the substitutes made as his team came from a goal down to win 2-1 to make it three wins on the bounce. At his aftermatch press conference Mowbray said “It was one of those games where there was an expectation, it felt a bit like the AFC Wimbledon game (1-0 defeat) after the two wins at Rochdale and Scunthorpe and we fell flat. “But we got there in the end and hopefully that shows that the team is developing and getting stronger and hopefully we can find a way to win at Ewood. “I think we have to accept that the games at home are going to be a difficult proposition for us. “For 20 minutes we were very dominant and they grew in to the game and were a threat on the counter-attack and grew in confidence. “As we do sometimes away from home they played inside the shape and broke away but we decided in the second half to have less of the ball, go that bit more direct and keep our shape behind the ball. “Ultimately it paid dividends. We made the changes and I thought Danny (Graham) was fantastic the way he used his body and it was about finding a way to win.”
Rovers are back in action on Tuesday as they travel to Bloomfield to take on Blackpool who are managed by former Rovers boss Gary Bowyer.
