Proud of everyone

20 March 2016

Paul Lambert was proud of his team's display as ten-man Rovers won a tight contest at Griffin Park 1-0.

The three points sees Rovers move up to 14th in the table after Shane Duffy's stunning strike four minutes from time secured the victory.

It looked tough for the visitors when captain Grant Hanley received a second yellow card for handball ten minutes into the second half, but the side showed great courage to hold Brentford at bay before striking at the death.

"I'm as proud as anybody, as any Blackburn Rovers fan or member of staff," Lambert told Rovers PlayerHD.

"Because they had worked ever so hard, I thought the sending off was harsh, there wasn't any intent.

"But to get the win was vital for us, there are a lot of plusses today, I'm delighted we got the win, there was a great turnout from our supporters again."

Rovers aren't back in action until they face Preston North End on April 2nd at Ewood Park, as the internationals take centre stage.

Those players not involved for their countries will now get a few days off as reward for their endeavours during what has been a gruelling schedule of fixtures.

"They deserve the break," added the Rovers boss. "I know some lads have to go with their international teams which is a great honour.

"But to have played 11 games in 30-odd days, they deserve their break."

Tickets for the match against Preston are currently on open sale.

Prices start from £22 for Adults, £14 for Seniors, £14 for 18-21 year-olds and from £9 for Juniors aged 17 and under.
