Danny Graham was delighted to end a 10-year wait for a hat-trick in Rovers' thrilling 4-2 victory over Sheffield Wednesday.

The 33-year-old's last treble came for Carlisle United in August 2008, in a 4-1 home victory over Yeovil.

It was a similar story at Ewood Park, as Graham netted the opener inside 11 minutes, before bagging a second-half brace to help secure the three points.

It was the perfect response to two disappointing defeats away to Preston and Wigan, and a fitting way to mark his 100th start for the club.

"I'm obviously delighted to get a hat-trick," said the Rovers hot-shot.

"On the back of the last few results we've had, it was extra special.

"I thought the lads came out and stood up as men. We defended well at times and when we broke we were clinical.

"That's what we have to be every week. We'll put those last two games behind us now and hopefully move forward.

"I've had a few doubles in my time here and it hasn't fallen to me or whatever, so I'm delighted to get the hat-trick today.

"But the most important thing after the week we've had was to get the three points, get that confidence back and we can now look forward to a tough December."
