Craig: It's great to be back

Conway eager for the games to keep on coming for him and Rovers

Rovers winger Craig Conway says he's feeling in perfect shape after missing just over a month of football through injury.

Before the weekend win at Peterborough, the Scot's last outing for Rovers came against Fleetwood in October.

But after missing the last through weeks, Conway's timely recovery coincided with Elliott Bennett's suspension, and Tony Mowbray opted to throw the 32-year-old in from the start at the ABAX Stadium.

And the midfielder believes he's fit and firing, and eager for the games to come having been in the XI for Rovers' last two games in all competitions.

"It's brilliant to be back after a frustrating few weeks," he said honestly on Thursday.

"I feel better than I've felt all season. I feel fully fit, and I probably came back a bit too soon from my first injury.

"It's been one thing after another, little niggles, which have been really frutrating. Hopefully I'm over them now and I want to look forward rather than looking back.

"Being out for five weeks, I didn't expect to play the 90 minutes at Peterborough, but I felt really good. I cramped up late on but I felt good and then got 60 minutes at Crewe."

So how irritating has it been for Craig watching on from the stands?

"I want the lads to win whether I'm playing or not, but any footballer will tell you that you want to play rather than watching on," he said.

"The way things have worked out, I've come back and been playing straight from the off, which has worked out well for me.

"It's another massive game for us on Saturday and one which we believe we can take the three points from."

Tickets for the game against Charlton remain on sale from the ticket office. To back the boys at Ewood Park this weekend, purchase yours, here.
