Graham: Build on Sunday's display against Burton

Danny Graham knows Rovers must use the way they played against Manchester United as the inspiration to perform against Burton Albion this Friday night.

Rovers impressed as they narrowly went out of the Emirates FA Cup at the weekend, but the striker insists it will count for nothing if they can't follow it up against the Brewers.

The Blues stunned the Premier League giants with a sensational opener, Graham lashing home emphatically after excellent work from Marvin Emnes. But they were unable to see the game out as goals from Marcus Rashford and Zlatan Ibrahimovic saw the visitors through.

But Graham knows they have to build on that display in what is a hugely important match at the Pirelli Stadium.

"It was a great moment," Graham told Rovers PlayerHD. "To go 1-0 up against Manchester United you think the shock could be on the cards.

"Marv deserves a lot of credit. He held the ball off, turned the guy a couple of times and slipped me in and I've managed to stick it away which was nice.

"But they are a great team and they put us under a lot of pressure in the second half.

"It wasn't to be but I think the boys can hold their heads up high. We've set the standard now against a very good Manchester United team and we need to take that into Friday night's game.

"But we've got to turn our attentions now to Burton which is a massive games and one that we've got to prepare for very quickly.

"We need to go now with confidence and if we do that I'm sure we'll be fine."
