David Raya was delighted to play his part as Rovers continued their fine form with a 1-0 victory over Scunthorpe United on Tuesday night.

The Rovers number one put in a man-of-the-match display as Marcus Antonsson's second half strike sealed the win for the Lancastrians.

Raya admitted the poor weather made the conditions tough, but was pleased to come away with the points for the fourth consecutive match.

"It was a hard victory," the Spaniard told iFollow Rovers.

"It was a difficult game, in bad conditions, but we've come out with three points and the clean sheet, that is the most important thing.

"It was very tough, Scunthorpe have been in the top six for the last two or three years trying to get promotion, so it is a difficult place to come as they are a really good team."

Raya will get the headlines after a string of fine saves to keep the Iron at bay, but he paid tribute to the rest of the Rovers squad in ensuring a third consecutive clean sheet away from home.

"I'm there to do my job and I've done that," he added. "But credit to the lads that we kept a clean sheet, from the strikers to the goalkeeper. It is good to keep clean sheets, every goalie wants that.

"It was very difficult conditions out there, but we can enjoy the win."

Raya and Rovers are back in action this Saturday when AFC Wimbledon are the visitors to Ewood Park.
