Rovers defender Derrick Williams admits he's delighted with both his own and the team's form at the moment after making it six successive victories at the weekend.

Williams made it a milestone match, but admitted he didn't have a clue about it until after the game had finished.

And he feels Rovers are finally all clicking after a slightly troubling start to the campaign.

"I feel really good now. It took me a while to get going at the start of the season, which I think was the case for a few of the lads at the beginning, but we're all in a good place at the moment," the 24-year-old said after his 200th career match.

"I didn't know it was my 200th appearance, to be honest. I'm racking up the games now, which is good.

"In this league teams look to kick it long and you have to simply defend, which we had to do at times against Charlton.

"In those situations when balls are being launched in, you just have to stay concentrated and stay clear minded and positive."

And the left back, who has been a regular since moving to Ewood Park in the summer of 2016, believes goalkeeper David Raya is turning into an excellent stopper for Rovers, with the Spaniard making a few crucial saves at the weekend.

"It helps so much having David behind you, coming for crosses and relieving the pressure off the back four," Del said.

"He's really developing well at the moment and producing the goods. He made some unbelievable saves at the weekend."
