Bradley Dack has dedicated his League One Player of the Season prize to "everyone involved with the club" following a memorable night at the EFL awards.

Dack was voted the league's star man ahead of Wigan's Nick Powell and Peterborough's Jack Marriott at the event in London on Sunday evening.

The attacker was also named in the EFL Team of the Season alongside team-mate Charlie Mulgrew, and says it wouldn't have been possible without the backing of those back in East Lancashire.

"I'm absolutely delighted, it's a huge honour to win this award," he said.

"I couldn't have done this without my team-mates, the manager and staff at the club, so I'd like to thank all of them. I'm delighted.

"At the start, it was a bit difficult for me to settle in, I had a couple of injuries at the start of the season.

"Once I got going, the players really helped me; I soon settled in and got on the pitch regularly. I found my form and kicked on from there.

"I think my best position is in that number 10 role, where I can get on the ball. We play in the final third a lot of the time and that suits me.

"It's been a good night but the most important thing now is making sure we get promoted."

Dack and Rovers are back in action on Thursday evening against Marriott's Peterborough at Ewood Park (kick-off 7:45pm).
