The best that Watt has been

3 March 2016

Paul Lambert was pleased to see Tony Watt make an impact on his return to the starting line-up in Tuesday's victory over Middlesbrough.

The Scottish international has had to be patient for his opportunity since joining on loan from Charlton at the turn of the year, but impressed as Rovers made it three home wins in a row against the Teessiders.

The Rovers boss admitted that there were several selection headaches ahead of the match, but was happy with the attacker's display.

"I think that is the best that Tony Watt has been for the hour that he was on," said Lambert.

"He's not been in the team due to the form of other guys, but I thought the night was the time to bring him in.

"I left Elliott Bennett out, who has arguably been one of our better players, because of amount of work-rate that he has been doing over the last few weeks.

"We changed it around a little bit and got a great win."

Rovers are back in action this Saturday when they make the short journey to take on Burnley.

If you weren't fortunate to get a ticket, then why not do the next best thing and watch the big match in Blues Bar!

Blues will be open from 9.30am on Saturday serving teas, coffee, soft drinks and food, with alcohol being served from 10.00am.

Enjoy a bite to eat with breakfast butties, burgers, chilli and chips all available.

An hour before kick-off until the first goal is scored or the final whistle blows it is £2.00 for a pint of Fosters or John Smiths, and £2.50 for a pint of Kronenbourg or Strongbow.

So come on down to Blues and enjoy the big match atmosphere!
