Just rewards

17 February 2016

Paul Lambert was full of praise for his front pairing in Tuesday night's 3-0 win over Fulham.

Danny Graham marked his Ewood debut with his first Rovers goal, whilst he was ably assisted by the hard-working Chris Brown as the Cottagers were brushed aside.

The manager was pleased to see Graham get off the mark, and felt that the foundations for their victory was built on the work-rate that was on show.

"I'm delighted to see Danny get his goal because Danny Graham is a goalscorer," Lambert told Radio Rovers.

"He just needed one so now hopefully he goes on a little run. He's scored goals at every level, we are fortunate that we've got him.

"You saw his work-rate, it was phenomenal. He does the ugly side of the game ever so well and I thought him and Chris Brown up top were excellent.

"The two of them were really good, really pleasing. Browny was a handful all night, he was tracking back and making tackles, doing that side of the game that people might not recognise.

"Every time he has played for me he has never let me down. He's a terrific lad and when he turns in performances like that he's a really good player.

"They got their just rewards with a good victory."
