Charlie chuffed to chalk up the tally

Another two for Mulgrew moved him onto 11 for the season

Considering he'd gone three games without finding the net, it's fair to say Rovers skipper Charlie Mulgrew was due a goal - or two.

The defender bagged his 10th and 11th strikes of the season - the latter a penalty - to ensure a crucial three points were added to Rovers' tally, with both goals sandwiching Danny Graham's precise first time finish.

And in typical Mulgrew fashion, the goals meant little to him, with a solid defensive display, and ultimately the victory being the Scot's main concern when he spoke to iFollow after the game.

“Goals change games and we’re happy to have got them," the 31-year-old admitted.

“The third goal gave us a cushion but there was still a long way to go. The attitude from the boys was brilliant after that and the boys who came on did well.

“I’m happy to have scored the goals but I’ve said before we have to keep clean sheets as well.

“I take a lot of pride in that so as happy as I am that I’m scoring it’s about the team and winning games.

Charlie changed things up when stepping up for the chance to add a third goal to Rovers' tally, with a stutter prior to cooly slotting home to an unfamiliar side, so what went through his mind?

“I saw the keeper move early and put it in the other side," he revealed.

“Each penalty I forget what I’ve done before and look forward and I knew there was a lot of pressure on it and it was up to me to step up and take responsibility and thankfully I scored.

“What’s done is done, we’ll enjoy it and take confidence from the win, but from Monday we look forward and prepare for the next match.That’s the way it has to be for the next 20 games."
