Boss: Danny Graham is a fantastic asset for us

2 March 2017

Whilst not involved in Tuesday night's win over Derby County, boss Tony Mowbray insists Danny Graham still has an important part to play this season.

The club's top scorer was an unused substitute in the Ewood victory over the Rams, as the manager opted to go with Sam Gallagher and Marvin Emnes up top.

Mowbray felt that the match against Derby wouldn't have suited Graham's talents, but stressed that there'll be more than enough matches for he striker to make his mark.

"I don't want anyone to think that Danny Graham isn't a fantastic asset for us," the manager told Rovers PlayerHD.

"I think in the games where we are going to dominate the ball more, Danny Graham is going to score lots of goals for us.

"I just felt that against Derby we were going to have to defend, we were going to have to defend deep, and we needed the qualities of an Emnes and a Gallagher to be able to run away and stretch the pitch with the ball.

"And with respect to Danny, his assets and qualities are elsewhere, and hopefully on the days where were are dominating and we are getting lots of balls into the box he can finish them off."
Rovers and Graham are back in action this Saturday when Wigan Athletic are the visitors to Ewood Park.
