Paul Lambert praised his side's effort and desire as they defeated Birmingham City 2-0 at Ewood Park on Tuesday evening.
First half goals from Tony Watt and Danny Graham saw Rovers claim a fourth consecutive home league win to dent their opponents' play-off hopes.
The Rovers boss admitted that his side didn't hit the heights displayed in recent weeks but was delighted to see them grind out an important three points.
"I thought it was hard work because it was a difficult game," Lambert told Radio Rovers.
"When you have a lot of the ball it can be detrimental to you at times and I thought Birmingham played a good game in sitting in and playing on the counter-attack, so there wasn't much space.
"I thought we did great to get the two goals up with two very good goals, but I thought some of the decision making was pretty poor from us. I thought there was a lot of tired legs out there.
"But I'm delighted to win the game, the way we played at times was very good, other times not so good.
"It was a monumental win because of the effort that was put in on Saturday. It took a lot out of us to get nothing from it, so to go again is a massive ask, so I thought it was excellent from that point of view."
