Rovers striker Chris Brown was delighted to get another 90 minutes under his belt in the 2-1 victory over Fulham on Saturday.
After spending six months on the sidelines with a knee injury, Brown feels he is now getting back to his best.
“I really enjoyed it out there,” said the 29-year-old.
“The pitch was a bit heavy, so it was quite hard work in the second-half to keep up the same intensity, but it was well worth it when that whistle went at the end.
“I can feel my sharpness coming back and hopefully that will keep improving. It was just my second 90 minutes in nine months and I’ve got to keep going.
“We have a lot of good strikers here – every different kind of attribute – but whoever plays needs to put a bit of a marker down and I’d like to think I did that.”
Brown was also full of praise for his team-mates.
“It was a much-needed win for us, but I think we deserved it,” added Brown. “They started well, but once we got the first goal you could see the confidence come back and we dominated the game.
“After we scored the second we played some lovely stuff and we looked very comfortable, but just a little lapse in concentration let us down. However, on the whole, I thought the lads were outstanding.
“Fulham are a team that have picked up recently and I think they will be up there come the end of the season and our lads at the back dealt with their strikers brilliantly.”
