Sensational Steele

25 September 2016

Boss Owen Coyle was delighted with the performance of goalkeeper Jason Steele in Saturday's 2-1 win over Derby County.

Goals from Marvin Emnes and Danny Graham saw the Blues come from behind to claim back-to-back wins and a first away from home in the league this season, but the Rovers number one played a huge part in the victory.

Steele made an impressive save in the first half to keep out a long-range strike from Jacob Butterfield, but the one to stop Matej Vydra from getting his second of the game was out of the top draw as Rovers then went straight up the other end to grab all three points.

"We have two very good goalkeepers in Jason Steele and David Raya," Coyle told Rovers PlayerHD after the match. "Each day working with coach Phil Hughes they are getting better.

"Of course Steely has already shown at times that when he needs to make saves that, as with the strikers when they have to finish, he's got to be there to do it.

"So I'm delighted, I thought he played very well today, but it isn't about individuals at our club, it is a collective team effort and the team has worked really hard.

"It is great to reward the fans with a very good performance and a great three points."
