The win was all that mattered

Marvin Emnes had no complaints about the manner in which Rovers collected a welcome three points in the win over Queens Park Rangers on Saturday.

The dreadlocked Dutchman admitted that it wasn't the best footballing spectacle, but the 1-0 victory was all that mattered.

Emnes played his part in the win on his Ewood return, laying on the pass for fellow forward Sam Gallagher to score the only goal of the game.

"It feels amazing, it could have gone the other way but luckily we got the three points," the striker told Radio Rovers.

"I think we have played some good games and only got a point or sometimes not even that.  If you play less football but get the three points, then no-one is going to complain.

"It shows that you can win both ways. You can win playing nice football but also win fighting which is what we did.

"From this moment we need to kick on and try and win the other games as well. At the moment we have to get out of the relegation zone and then kick on and see how high we can go. We have to try and get points from every game."

Next up for Rovers is a trip to face Rotherham United this Saturday, a team that Emnes scored against on his first Ewood outing in a 4-2 win earlier this season.

"It would be nice if I could score again, but the most important thing would be to get the three points," he added.
