Tony Mowbray was pleased to see Marcus Antonsson and Danny Graham open their accounts for the season in yesterday's 3-0 win over Rochdale.

Antonsson grabbed his first goal in Rovers colours since joining on loan move from Leeds United, whilst Graham stepped off the bench to apply the third and final goal on a satisfactory afternoon at Spotland.

The Rovers boss believes there is now plenty of competition for places in the attacking third of the pitch and that can only drive them on to make an impression when they get their opportunity.

"It is good that the strikers have scored," said Mowbray.

"I am pleased for Danny, who has worked really hard behind the scenes to get himself into the condition where he is going to have an impact on our team.

"Antonsson works like a trojan but he's still got to acclimatise I think, he's got to understand how we play as it doesn't stick all the time, but it is great that he scored.

"Samuel worked extremely hard, and you can see when Dack came on he wants to make an impression.

"So it is good to be able to bring the quality that we were able to bring on. I think we maybe should have scored a few more as Harry Chapman had some great opportunities late on."

Rovers are back on their travels this Tuesday night when they take on Scunthorpe United.
