Tony Mowbray was happy to see Dominic Samuel return to the scoresheet as his first half strike ensured all three points in a 1-0 win over Gillingham on Saturday.

The summer signing from Reading had found the back of the net with regularity in the first month of the season, but his goal in the weekend win at Ewood Park was his first in five outings.

That took his tally to five for the season, with his manager delighted to see him amongst the goals once more.

"Sometimes if it goes on two long you can start snatching at everything," said Mowbray."

"So it is good to see the relief on him to break his duck of four or five games.

"As long as the strikers keep knocking them in, Antonsson has scored a few over the last three or four games, Dominic is back on the scoresheet and Bradley scored the other day.

"So we need to get Danny on the pitch and get him scoring on a regular basis as well.

"That is what the team needs, we need people who are going to put the ball in the back of the net and get us three points. To keep accumulating goals and points."
