It took just over 12 seconds for Rovers to go from their own corner flag to Bradley Dack scoring his side's match-winning goal, and the attacking midfielder was thrilled to play his part in another victory for a relentless Rovers on Saturday.

Dack produced another excellent performance, and before slotting home Rovers' third, he'd already been part of Charlie Mulgrew's equaliser and bagged his team's second of the game soon after.

And although the whole game wasn't plain sailing for the team after going a goal down at Peterborough early on, Dack admitted he was thrilled to help his side seal a fifth consecutive League One victory.

"We had to improve in the second half and I think we really showed our capabilities," Bradley told iFollow after the game.

"We are disappointed with the late goal we conceded but we have to be delighted with the three points gained at what is a tough place to come to.

"We had chances in the first half but didn't put them away. In the second half, we certainly did.

"Richie [Smallwood] has put one on a plate for me for our second goal. I initially thought I'd give one to him for a change. It's a good cut-back though and it was nice to find the corner. The boys said they wanted one of us to just hurry up and finish it!"

Dack's second goal was arguably the pick of the bunch, with Rovers destroying a Posh side with a ruthless counter-attack, and although Dack enjoyed the moment, he insists Rovers' fine run of form needs to continue.

"For my second goal, Dom [Samuel] has done brilliant down the right to find Marcus [Antonsson] and it was a great ball for me to finish," he said.

"I'm playing with great players who give you good chances. Things are coming together nicely but we can't rest. We need to keep it up and keep it going at Crewe in midweek and then against Charlton on Saturday."
