Winning is a great habit to have

Liam Feeney was pleased to see Rovers maintain their recent run of results with Saturday's 2-1 FA Cup win over Queens Park Rangers.

The Rovers winger grabbed the all-important second goal - his first senior strike for the club - to set up a fourth round clash at Ewood against either Barnsley or Blackpool at the end of the month.

Feeney felt that the result was fully deserved and that a strong defensive base gave them the platform for victory.

"It was always going to be tough going away to another Championship club, but we always thought we'd get the right result and get through to the next round," said the 30-year-old.

"I thought we were pretty comfortable all afternoon, I thought we played well.

"We tried to build on our last two defensive performances and get better when we got on the ball and I think we showed that.

"We have been working a lot on our defensive shape and being able to break when we are in the right areas when we do win the ball back and I thought it paid dividends.

"We got quite a lot of joy in the wide areas on the counter and we always looked like scoring all afternoon.

"Winning is a great habit to be in, it doesn't matter if it is in the league or in the cup, we want to keep that feeling and momentum going."

Rovers are back in league action away at Ipswich Town on Saturday, but before then the youngsters are at Ewood Park this Wednesday night when they take on Aston Villa in the fourth round of the FA Youth Cup.
