Graham eager to extend Ewood scoring streak

Danny's bagged eight in his last eight games at Ewood Park - and wants that run to continue

Another couple of goals on Saturday will see Rovers frontman Danny Graham hit the 150 mark in his career, but he admits he's not too bothered about that.

Graham's been in a rich vein of form, particularly at Ewood Park and has eight goals in his last eight outings on home turf.

And although he'd like to hit his goal milestone sooner rather than later, confesses that the start of a winning run is all he's thinking about.

“It would be nice to get a couple to reach 150, but it’s more important to get three points" he said ahead of the game.

"I won’t let that play on my mind though, I’ll cross that bridge when I get to it. The most important thing at the minute is the team, and who’s to say that I’m playing on Saturday?

"The gaffer can change teams after a defeat, so I’ll be looking to get that 150, but it’s more important for the team to go on a run.

“It’s only been as it’s creeped up on me that it’s been sinking in. If you’d told me as a young boy growing up in Gateshead that I’d play 500 games and score 148 goals, I’d have snapped your hand off. I’d like to thank every club I’ve been at along the way, they’ve been a massive help in what’s been a great journey for me and my family."

Danny's excellent recent goal return saw him up for the January Player of the Month award, and although he missed out on picking up the gong, says he won't dwell on it.

“It was nice to be nominated for Player of the Month. Would I like to have won? Of course! I’m a footballer and I’m competitive. It wasn’t to be, so let’s get back to it on Saturday and get a run going.

"Shrewsbury and Wigan don’t seem to be letting off, so we need to make our home form count against teams like Oldham and Bury. We need to make sure we turn them over, get the points and move forward.”
