Boss Gary Bowyer hailed a superb all-round display from Matt Kilgallon in last night's victory over Sheffield Wednesday.
Whilst our North American connection of Adam Henley and Doneil Henry made the headlines in the 2-1 win, it was the performance of Matt Kilgallon at the heart of the Rovers defence that really caught the eye of the manager.
"Matt Kilgallon was magnificent tonight," said Bowyer. "Not only in his performance but he has a young lad alongside him making his debut in this environment. He got him through it superbly.
"There was a great responsibility on him tonight and he shone for us.
"He's been captain for the last two games and tonight really stepped up to the plate and lead it magnificent.
"The block he made in the second half was incredible, he showed great bravery.
"I have nothing put praise for him, his performances have been at a very high standard. He's really enjoying his football and you can see that. His experience is vital to us."
