Tony Mowbray has been pleased to see Rovers' recent flurry of goals shared among several players.

The Blues have now scored 11 goals in three away games, with four different goalscorers on the scoresheet during Tuesday's 4-2 win at Blackpool.

Having scored twice at Oxford and once against Bristol Rovers, Charlie Mulgrew netted his seventh goal of the campaign in midweek, leaving Mowbray full of praise for his captain. 

“I don’t know what to say. You can eulogise about Charlie Mulgrew all day," he said.

“He’s our top scoring defender, and I think we’re spreading the goals well now. 

“It’s always nice for someone to jump out and score 25 goals but, at the moment, the team are sharing the goals out.

“It was great to see Paul Downing score, and great for Dacky and Marcus [Antonsson] to score again too. 

“We created chances. Marcus hit the post, Bradley had a shot blocked on the line, but let’s not get greedy.

“It was a tough game that we came out on top of."

Rovers are now just three points behind second-placed Shrewsbury in the League One standings, but the boss says he's not looking too far forward.

"We have to take every game as it comes now and see where it takes us," he added.

“Every game is tough in this league, so let’s keep going, focus, be together and look forward to the next match.”

Tickets are still available for Sunday’s Emirates FA Cup second-round clash against Crewe at Ewood Park.
