Danny Graham is "raring to go" ahead of Tuesday's league match against Fleetwood, and says the players know the importance of picking up a postive result.

The striker found the net in Rovers' last home home against Portsmouth and came off the bench to good effect in Saturday's goalless draw at Wigan.

Tony Mowbray's men can climb the table with another victory at Ewood Park tomorrow, and Graham says he can't wait for the game.

"We know how important tomorrow is, it’s one of our games in hand and if we win we’ll move up the league," he said.

“There’s a lot to play for, so we need to make sure we put in a good performance and get the points.

“The home performances have been good of late, and hopefully we can continue that against Fleetwood.

“I’ve never come up against them before, but we know they’re a good team and they play good football. It will be a tough game, but we have to worry about ourselves.

“It will be a big battle, but I’m ready for that. I’m raring to go and want to score goals to move us up the league.

“We’re a team, we’ve got a good group of boys and everyone is going to get their chance, so I need to be called upon when ready."

Asked to give his assessment of the season so far, Graham added:  “We’d like to be a bit closer to the top, but I think performances are getting better. 

“We’ve been solid at the back and, going forward, I think we’ll score goals. I’m sure we’ll be up there in the top two by the end of the season – that’s the aim.

“We’re used to the league now so we have no excuses, we just need to focus and make sure we’re ready come matchday.”

“I think everyone’s on a high after the result against Portsmouth and then going to Wigan and getting something with 10 men.

“We showed grit and determination to get the point, so everyone is buzzing and looking forward to tomorrow’s game.

“I felt as though I did quite well, I came on and held the ball up, got back and won headers and managed to help the boys out.
