Corry Evans had an Ewood Park debut to remember as his stunning strike helped Rovers claim a 4-1 win over Bolton Wanderers.

The Northern Ireland international, a second half substitute on Saturday, wasted little time in introducing himself to the supporters with a superb 25-yard volley on his home bow.

Speaking to Radio Rovers after the match, the midfielder was pleased to grab the goal, but was more delighted that Rovers were able to claim all three points.

"It is always good to score, but it was really pleasing that we won the game," said Evans.

"It was a very good team performance from the lads, Bolton didn't really look like scoring, they had a lot of the ball but they didn't create much.

"Whereas when we had the ball we were really clinical in our finishing and the scoreline reflects that.

"You want to take maximum points from every home game you play, we were unlucky against Forest but we've put it right in the last two games.

"That is six points from the two home games, so to take that into the international break is good."

For Evans, he's linked up with the Northern Ireland squad for their World Cup qualifiers. They face Portugal at Windsor Park this Friday before a trip to take on Luxembourg the following Tuesday.

Rovers are back in action a week on Saturday when they face Burnley at Turf Moor. Tickets are on sale to database members, find out more details here.
