Danny Graham was delighted to mark his first home appearance with his first goal in Rovers colours.

The January loan arrival from Sunderland, played a starring role in Rovers' comfortable 3-0 win over Fulham at Ewood Park on Tuesday night, grabbing the third goal on the night three minutes from time.

Graham felt the performance was one that the team had to put in to record their first league win in 2016, admitting they owed the supporters a victory.

"I thought we played very well from start to finish," Graham told Radio Rovers.

"I was just about to come off and luckily enough I got a goal but the most important thing was a good team performance.

"I think we owed that to the fans and to ourselves after Saturday so it was nice to get a win and hopefully we can kick on now.

"I thought the performance was on par with Middlesbrough, we let ourselves down in the second half against Hull so it was important to bounce back.

"The three points are massive, I think that is our first win in ten games so it will breed confidence throughout the team.

"It is important that we push up the table instead of looking over our shoulders so hopefully we can do that in the coming weeks.

"We go again now with the FA Cup, unfortunately I can't play but I'm sure the lads will put on a good performance against West Ham then we've got another tough game at Derby next week."

Rovers return to action this Sunday afternoon when West Ham United are the visitors to Ewood Park - kick-off 2.00pm.

After the 3-0 league success over Fulham on Tuesday night, all attentions now turn to the Emirates FA Cup with the fifth round clash against the Hammers.
