Danny Graham missed out on Thursday night's victory over Bradford City, but four days later he was back pulling the strings at MK Dons.
A back injury put the striker out of action for the first of two Easter matches, but he returned to the starting XI for the second and set up both goals for Adam Armstrong's brace against the Dons.
And boss Tony Mowbray believes the experienced hitman will be vital for Rovers between now and the end of the campaign, with only seven matches remaining this term.
“I know Danny can score goals and he has hit a real purple patch in recent months," the boss told reporters on Thursday morning. "He has the bit between his teeth and I know how desperate he is to help get this club promoted.
“Danny’s an important part of our team. We played Dominic [Samuel] down the middle against Bradford with Danny out injured; it’s important to win without your senior players and show the group that you can win and grind things out.
“This season we’ve shown we can win without Danny, without [Charlie] Mulgrew, without [Bradley] Dack and without [Darragh] Lenihan."
Rovers are next in action on Saturday 7th April when Southend United visit Ewood Park. Kick-off is at 3pm and you can purchase your tickets by clicking here.
