Rudy: Feed me and I'll score

10 November 2014

In-form striker Rudy Gestede feels he can get amongst the goals every time he takes to the field.

The Benin international took his goal tally for the season into double figures after his bullet header saw Rovers stretch their unbeaten run to seven with a draw at Brighton on Saturday.

The giant frontman, whose goal was his 23rd in Rovers colours since joining from Cardiff City just under 12 months ago, admits he is in the form of his life and credits his team-mates for providing the service.

"I know I'm able to score in any game against anybody," said Gestede. "I don't mind, I'm not scared of any defender.

"We've got a good team, I know I've got good players behind me, I know that they will feed me."

Rovers trailed to Gary Gardner's first half strike at the Amex Stadium, but Gestede powered Rovers back on level terms with a sensational header from Markus Olsson's centre.

The ball crashing back off the woodwork before spinning into the goal in spectacular fashion to earn the visitors a point.

"It is a good cross from Markus and I just headed it and it goes inside," added the striker.

"We got back in the game, it wasn't that easy as Brighton did well to be fair, but we needed to be stronger. It was a bad goal to concede, I think we could have done better with the corner.

"After half-time we stuck together, push forward and we scored like we are used to, so it is a good point.

"We have big confidence, each time we come back and we never give up, so hopefully we can keep this level going.

"Hopefully we can stop conceding goals first and win our next game 1-0. We've got Leeds at home in the next one and hopefully we are going to get three points."

Rovers and Rudy return to action after the international break when Leeds United are the visitors to Ewood Park on Saturday 22nd November.
