We've got a fighting chance

1 May 2017

Danny Graham was happy to be back on the scoresheet but more delighted with the three points on Saturday.

The Rovers striker took his goal tally to 13 for the season with a second half strike in the 1-0 victory over Aston Villa.

Whilst results elsewhere meant Rovers remin in the bottom three, the result ensured they can take it to the final day of the season in their fight for survival.

"We knew what we had to do going into the game against a good Villa team who have spent a lot of money," Graham told Radio Rovers.

"I think we controlled most of the first half and when we got in front we defended our lead well.

"It was a great ball by Lowey, it had plenty of pace on it so I just had to get my side-foot onto it and redirect it. I knew as soon as I hit it that it was going in. It was a great feeling.

"But I don't want to take any glory, it was massive effort from everybody, we got in front, then the back three and the wing-backs defended ever so well when we needed them to.

"It was a real collective performance, everybody is really happy. We've done our job and it gives us a fighting chance.

"Personally I've never been relegated and I don't want that. So I'll be doing everything I can to make sure that we stay up.

"We need to focus on Brentford now, this game has gone now, we'll get back on the training ground and go to Brentford with a game-plan and execute it."
