Tony Mowbray has vowed to keep working with striker Dominic Samuel to ensure he is a success at Ewood Park.

The former Reading man has made an excellent start to his Rovers career with three goals from his opening five games of the campaign.

And Mowbray, who had the 23-year-old on loan with him whilst at Coventry City, believes he has all the attributes to go far in the game.

"I think it is a plus that he has got amongst the goals so early," Mowbray told iFollow Rovers.

"He's still a very young boy, he's got a lovely personality, I'm just trying to push the right buttons with him to be more aggressive, to want to hurt teams in behind, to be focused, single-minded and want to score goals. That is why he is here.

"He has taken that on board and he is working extremely hard. Him and Bradley are out there an hour after the end of training trying to score goals and beat the goalkeepers from different angles.

"I'd worked with him two-and-a-half years ago when he was a really young boy and yet he still had wonderful physical attributes and a good mentality to want to score goals.

"He's a very clean living lad, he's got strong religious beliefs and he works extremely hard on his football. He wants to be a success and I want him to be a success.

"He is going to judged on his goals, he's started okay, he's scored two or three goals in different competitions. He has to be very single-minded as he goes forward, that is what his job is every week.

"He is on the pitch to put the ball in the back of the net and help the team win matches."
