Rovers hitman Danny Graham was thrilled after another three points pushed the club to the top of the League One table.

Danny continued his hot streak on home turf and although the performance from the team wasn't vintage, the Geordie striker says the win is all that matters.

“It was massive to get the three points, no matter how we played," he said to iFollow Rovers after the game.

"We played a lot better in the second half, it’s another win and a clean sheet and we look ahead to Saturday now.

“It shows the hard work has paid off to be top of the league. The pressure is on the others now. It’s been a long time coming and we’ve had to play catch up, but it’s over to them now and the pressure’s on.
 
“It’s taken a marvellous run to get here. We have 13 games to come, starting at Walsall and we go there full of confidence."
 
And the striker added that a change of shape helped Rovers earn those three points against a Shakers side who in fairness, didn't perform like a side in the relegation zone.
 
“We opted for three at the back and playing with two number 10s, but it was hard to get Bradley [Dack] and Arma [Adam Armstrong] on the ball," Graham reflected.
 
“We switched to our usual system, looked more comfortable with it, got the opening goal and it set us off for a massive three points.
 
“It was a great stand up ball from Bradley and once it went in it certainly eased the nerves, the fans got right behind us and we can send them home happy with the win.
 
“I knew what was coming. I see what Brad does in training, clipping balls to the back stick. His performance deserved a goal, but it means I overtake him in the goalscoring charts."
