Learning all the time

Gary Bowyer believes his young side are getting better with each passing game.

Saturday saw Rovers follow up an impressive draw with Manchester City with a hardworking win over Doncaster Rovers as Rudy Gestede's first half header sealed all three points.

The home side were dominant at Ewood Park in the first 45 but only had one goal to show for it. That allowed them to come under increasing pressure in the second period from Paul Dickov's Donny.

However Rovers stood firm to claim the win, with Bowyer seeing great signs from the rugged display.

"We've had a tough period so there's a lot of praise for them," said the Rovers boss.

"They are learning and they are developing and getting better and better.

"Last week they were a credit to the football club, this week they've been even more so."
