Rovers striker Danny Graham is happy that the goals are being shared around the team, but still has his eyes on the top goalscorer prize come the end of the season.

After his header against Bury, Graham went to 13 for the campaign and clear at the top of the goalscoring charts.
But Charlie Mulgrew and Bradley Dack are hot on his heels with 12 strikes each, with goals coming right through the spine of the Rovers side.
And on his Monday night goal, whilst everyone else was amazed at the vision and craft from Dack for the assist, Danny admits he has seen it time and time again at the Senior Training Centre.
“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," Graham said.
“He’s been a delight to play with and been massive for us this season. We’re getting goals from all over now. Arma [Adam Armstrong] has got four now, he’s been on fire but it’s his all round play that’s impressive, especially his work rate.
“The two at Portsmouth were massive. His first goal was an unbelievable finish and his second a poacher’s effort at a real tough place to go.
“I want to score as many goals as I can to get this club up to the Championship. We’re sharing the goals around now which is pleasing. I’m on 13, a couple are on 12, Marcus [Antonsson] and Dom [Samuel] are on eight."
The goal saw the experience Graham go within one goal of 150 in his career, with the striker believing it will come sooner, rather than later.
“That 150 milestone will come soon enough, it’ll be a great landmark. I said before that it’ll take four or five wins in a row to get right up there and we got the clean sheet as well tonight, which was nice."
