Subs showed their talent and quality

Manager Tony Mowbray was delighted with the contribution of his substitutes in last night's 3-1 Carabao Cup victory over Coventry City.

Ben Gladwin and Jack Doyle were both handed their first senior outings in Rovers colours, whilst Harry Chapman again caught the eye coming off the bench.

But for an outstanding goalkeeping display from Coventry's Liam O'Brien, all three subs could have got on the scoresheet, with Mowbray pleased that they were able to make an impression.

"I thought the lads that came on showed that they've got some talent and quality," said the Rovers boss.

"Harry Chapman, whilst he's only a baby really, he's a positive lad, he's had two or three shots at their goal that the keeper has had to save.

"Ben Gladwin ghosts past people like they aren't there, he shifts the ball from foot to foot and can threaten as well.

"And I like Jack Doyle, I think he is full of energy, he knows the position.

"They just have to bed into our group and show the fans how they can do it and what they can do.

"We have to make sure that as injuries come along - as they have from last weekend - that we can cope with them and that we have some flexible players who can help the team."

Rovers get their home campaign underway this Saturday when Doncaster Rovers are the visitors to Ewood Park.
