Mowbray: Graham is an important player for us

2 May 2017

Tony Mowbray is delighted to have Danny Graham back fit and firing for the football club.

Injury has meant that the Rovers boss hasn't had the luxury of including Rovers' top-scorer too often since arriving at Ewood Park, but was pleased to see him return to the starting line-up and get the all-important goal in the 1-0 victory over Aston Villa.

Graham's match-winner took his tally for the season to 13, and the manager hopes he can add to that this Sunday in the all-important final game of the season against Brentford.

"He hasn't been fit really for a lot of my time at this club," Mowbray told Radio Rovers.

"I think every player like Danny Graham is important to any football club. Somebody who, whether they play well or they don't play well in any given game, generally get chances to score goals because in that area of the pitch right between the sticks and the ball falls in there sometimes and they have a chance.

"He was injured pretty early on when I arrived, we tried to find other solutions, so it is great that he is now fit and available and I hope he has a good weeks' training and he can do the same on Sunday."

Tickets for Sunday's match at Griffin Park have now all sold out. Why not listen to full match commentary on Rovers PlayerHD. Our broadcast starts at approximately 11.45am.
