Full credit to the players

Gary Bowyer hailed another huge team effort as Rovers rallied to claim an impressive 3-1 win over Nottingham Forest.

The home side lead at the City Ground due to Matty Fryatt's strike before the break, but Rovers put in an outstanding second half of attacking football to turn the match around.

Alex Baptiste blasted Rovers on level terms on 66 minutes and from that point there was only one winner. Rudy Gestede headed Rovers in front from Lee Williamson's pinpoint cross, before Jordan Rhodes netted a third to send the travelling supporters home delighted.

"We are delighted with how it has gone today," said the Rovers boss post-match.

"I thought there wasn't much in it in the first half. We were a little bit disappointed to go in 1-0 down at half-time, you look at the manner of their goal, it has hit the post and landed at Fryatt's feet.

"But the response from them was magnificent and credit to them. Nottingham Forest hadn't been beaten here all season.

"Again it was a massive team effort, it would be wrong of me to single anybody out individually today.

"It was just massive team effort from everybody at the end of a very tough week."
