Gary Bowyer was delighted to see Tom Cairney back in a Rovers shirt on Tuesday night.
The popular midfielder returned to action after six weeks out with an ankle injury, marking the occasion with a rare right-footed goal in the 3-3 draw with Brighton.
Speaking to Radio Rovers, the manager said: "We've been banging on at him to get more goals. We saw his goal against Barnsley and tonight it is a fantastic finish to get in there at the back post.
"I was delighted with how he played, we knew he would tire towards the end but he'll be much better for the game."
Cairney and Rovers are back in action this Saturday when Ipswich Town are the visitors to Ewood Park. Tickets are currently on open sale priced from £15 Adults, £10 Seniors and £5 Juniors. Book online today at www.onerovers.co.uk.
