Goalkeeper Jason Steele was delighted to mark his debut for Rovers with a win and a clean sheet.

The former England Under-21 stopper was handed his first start on Saturday after a knee injury ruled out Paul Robinson, and the Middlesbrough man didn't disappoint.

Steele wasn't kept too busy on debut, but what did come his way was dealt with ease, whilst at the other end Jordan Rhodes notched his fourth of the campaign in the 1-0 win at Craven Cottage.

"Three big points and a clean sheet as well," said the goalkeeper after the match.

"We are absolutely delighted in there, to come to a place like Fulham, let alone a Fulham with a caretaker manager and a resurgent squad, it is a tough place to come.

"We didn't play too well at times, but to win a game in this league is mighty tough and we are all very delighted."

The loanee was pleased to get his chance for Rovers and repay them with their second win on their travels this season.

"The gaffer said to me to do what I do best and do what I enjoy and it was great to be back on a football pitch," added Steele. "It has been a little while.

"Credit has to go to the staff for bringing me in and giving me a bit of love that I needed.

"It was a great opportunity for me and I'm delighted that we've won. The clean sheet gives me an immense amount of satisfaction and pride.

"To win 1-0 away from home in this league is always great."

Rovers are back in action this Saturday at 3.00pm when Watford are the visitors to Ewood Park.

Tickets are currently on sale priced from £17 for Adults, from £11 for Seniors & Students and from just £6 for Under-17s.
