I'm feeling fitter than ever, boasts Brad

The Rovers talisman feels in the best shape he's ever been in

Rovers playmaker Bradley Dack believes he's in the best shape of his life right now and reckons that's a big reason for his fine form.

Injuries restricted the ex-Gillingham man's involvement at the start of the campaign and Dack was forced to play catch up in terms of fitness because of that.

But ten goals in his last 16 games - an impressive return from someone who isn't a striker - shows that the Rovers number 23 is really coming to the boil in blue and white.

In fact, Dack has already beaten his goal tally from last season with the Gills.

"I feel the fittest I've ever been," the 24-year-old admitted.

"I'll be honest, I'm not sure last season my body could have coped with playing two games in three games, but I feel good right now.

"Playing with top players has really elevated my game. They spur you on to do better, improve and raise your game when you are training with the likes of Danny Graham, Dom [Samuel], Richie [Smallwood], I could go on and on."

And with Hull on the horizon, with the Tigers set to visit Ewood Park on Saturday in the FA Cup, Dack is keen to see how he gets on against Championship opponents.

We've seen Tony Mowbray rotate his side in the two previous rounds of the competition, but Bradley wants to continue his own personal momentum by playing against Nigel Adkins' side.

"You want to keep playing games and against Hull it's a chance to test yourself against Championship opposition.

"We want to win every game we play in and we'll look to do just that," he concluded.
