Simeon settling in well

27 January 2016

Simeon Jackson was pleased to make an impact as a second half substitute in Saturday's draw with Charlton Athletic.

The Canadian international caught the eye with an all-action display as Rovers drew 1-1 at the Valley.

"I was told to come on, to try and get us up the pitch and run the channels and try and create havoc," said the forward.

"It is what you try and do when you come on, especially in a game like this, you hopefully maybe come on and make a difference and try and get the winner."

Jackson has relished linking up with manager Paul Lambert once more after the two enjoyed a successful time together at Norwich City, and with the competition for places, he is sure the club can have a good second half to the season.

He added: "The lads have made myself welcome, it has been really good. It is good to be back under the gaffer now.

"The training has been brilliant since I've come in, it is high intensity and the lads are really putting the effort in daily which is very important.

"There's competition up front, everyone is a different type of striker so it is very good to have, especially going into the back end of the season. It is needed at every club."

Jackson wasn't signed in time to play for Rovers in the 3rd round of the Emirates FA Cup against Newport County, but is eligible to play this weekend against Oxford United.

Just a handful of tickets remain for the match with all tickets expected to sell out this Wednesday morning. Call 01254 372000 or visit the Roverstore at Ewood to secure your ticket.
