Delighted, but not getting carried away

Charlie Mulgrew was delighted to play his part in Rovers' 4-1 victory over MK Dons at Ewood Park.

After Derrick Williams' early opener had been cancelled out by Ed Upson's equaliser, the skipper fired home a free-kick to restore Rovers' lead by the break.

Mulgrew then headed home his second of the game 13 minutes from time, before Dominic Samuel added some gloss to the performance with a late fourth.

"We enjoyed the game and we always looked like winning the game," said the Scot, who now joins up with his country on international duty.

"As a defender, I'm disappointed to concede, but we showed a good attitude and I'm delighted to score two goals and to win the game.

"The third goal obviously helps us, because it gives us a two-goal cushion and that eased the nerves a wee bit and we started to play after that, and then the fourth seals the match for us and it was enjoyable after that.

"Everybody is over the moon, but right away we're looking forward to the next match."

The 4-1 success made it back-to-back league wins, following the triumph at Bradford City last weekend, and whilst Rovers are getting to grips with life in League One, Mulgrew admits no-one is getting carried away.

"We're finding our feet in the league and realising what it takes," added the 31-year-old.

"Now we know what it takes. First and foremost it's hard work and a battle, and we've got to match teams in that department and then come out on top.

"We showed that today, but we're not getting carried away. We move onto the next game and we need to do the same again.

"We've got tough games to come, where we're going to have to battle, work hard and out-fight teams, and we're up for that."
