Paul Lambert felt Elliott Bennett's goal on Saturday was just reward for his recent impressive performances.

The midfielder grabbed a debut goal in Rovers colours in the 3-2 weekend win over MK Dons, his first strike in almost three years.

Lambert has been delighted with Bennett and believes he is starting show the sort of form that prompted the manager to sign him on a two-and-a-half year deal back in January.

"I think he is playing really well," Lambert told Radio Rovers. "Elliott Bennett has been consistent and I think he is playing at the top of his game at the minute.

"It was a great goal, a terrific work-rate and energy which is something that you need in this league.

"As I've said before, I know exactly what I'll get from him, he was very good."
