Boss: Brad's goal was "amazing"

The in-form midfielder finished off a superb counter-attack during the 3-2 win at Peterborough

10 December 2017

Rovers are winning games and doing so in style, but there's one goal in particular which has got Tony Mowbray and the fans talking.

Bradley Dack's second strike in Saturday's 3-2 win at Peterborough - his eighth of the season in all competitions - rounded off a blistering break-away move.

It took Rovers just 12.9 seconds to turn defence at one end into a goal at the other, and Mowbray was full of praise when discussing the counter-attack after the game.

"The third goal in particular was an unbelievable, quality goal. We scored three good goals and could have scored more, to be honest," he said. 

"We work on a lot of different aspects of the game, and we've won a few matches by pressing really high up the pitch.

"We've scored goals by nicking the ball from players in their half, and Dacky's second today was an amazing break.

"At times you've got to respect the talent of the opposition, be good behind the ball and defend well, but also carry a threat.

"I thought Peterborough were exceptionally good at counter-attacking, that's the basis of their game - good teams will come here and find it difficult this year."

Highlights from the game will be available on from midday on Sunday December 11th.
