"I don't think it could have gone any better for us," says Bradley Dack, who was the main architect for Rovers in their impressive victory at Bury.

The midfielder laid on the two assists for Marcus Antonsson's first-half brace before going on to get a goal himself midway through the second half in what was a strong performance from the individual and the team.

The 23-year-old has been a key figure for Rovers this term since arriving from Gillingham in the summer and struck up a fine partnership with two-goal Antonsson at the Energy Check Stadium - something Dack admits had been focussed on at the training ground.

"We were very clinical today at a tough place where the pitch isn't great," he said. "We got the job done in the end.

"It's something we've worked on, getting bodies around Joe (Nuttall) and to get on the knockdowns.

"Joe's done well, I've got on it, spotted Marcus' run and just slotted it inside the full-back. It's a great finish from him and a really good start for us.

"They didn't create too much at all and it's always nice to win by three goals. It was pretty comfortable for us at the end."

A stop-start season has denied Rovers gaining any real momentum so far in the campaign and Dack is keen for his good form - along with the team's - to continue from here on in, with four months of continuous games on the horizon.

"I'm definitely feeling fit now," he added. "I've played seven or eight games in a row after having a couple of injuries at the start of the season.

"I feel as fit as I can be and you have to play well every week to stay in the team with the competition for places we have here.

"If you're playing in the team and winning then your confidence is high and you feel sharp.

"A lot of people have mentioned that we have to start climbing that league now. We've four months of total football with no breaks which is only going to benefit us.

"Winning is a habit. You look at Shrewsbury and they're finding it hard to get out of the habit and that's what we need to be like now."
