Danny: My striking instinct kicked in

Graham's goal showed exactly why all strikers should follow the ball in!

Rovers striker Danny Graham was happy his striking instinct kicked in after Bradley Dack's shot came off the post.

Graham gobbled up the opportunity by smashing high into the net first time to give Rovers the lead in the second half for the second time against Shrewsbury in the top of the table clash at Ewood Park.
And it was that goal - his sixth in his last ten outings - which gave Rovers the confidence to go on, grab a third goal and earn the valuable three points against the Shrews.
And Graham admits he's always been a wily old fox when it comes to getting on the end of those simple finishes.
“It was an unbelievable finish - again!" the Geordie striker joked to iFollow.
"I saw Brad going to shoot and as any striker should do I’ve followed it in.
"They’re probably the best ones when they bounce off the post or the ‘keeper spills it and you tap in.
“I gambled. It’s striker’s instinct and something I’ve always done over my career.
"You probably get five or six a season like that to be honest," he explained.
And although the striker - who was starting for the 350th time in his career - has his eyes set on another potential milestone, he's thrilled that Rovers put more pressure on the top two with the victory.

 “I’m closing in on 150 career goals now but it’s not about that, it’s about the result and we’re all delighted to win," he concluded.

A reminder that Rovers fans can watch the interview with Danny in full on iFollow over the weekend.
