Gary Bowyer was delighted to see Rudy Gestede back on the scoresheet with both goals in the 2-1 win over Blackpool on Saturday.
The Benin international continued his fine goalscoring form from last season with a brace to claim all three points for Rovers at Bloomfield Road.
"I'm delighted for him," said Bowyer. "He works hard and there was a lot said about him being away pre-season.
"But we knew all along and stuck with him with the confidence and belief that everybody has in him.
"He finished his first one ever so well and his second one is a great goal, a great team goal. The delivery from Craig was unbelievable."
