It's four years to the day that Craig Conway arrived at Rovers

It's deadline day in January 2014 and arriving at the Senior Training Centre is Scottish winger Craig Conway from Cardiff City.

Fast forward four years and Craig is still here, and it's fair to say he's seen a lot so far in his time at Rovers.

But despite a variety of managers and relegation heartbreak thrown in, in the main the 32-year-old confesses he's loving life at Ewood Park.

"There's a lot of ups and downs in those four years," he says. "It's gone really quickly, which I think is how it goes when you get a little bit older, but I've really enjoyed it here. 

"Last season was a massive down for me, but I think there's a good feeling around the club now, winning games and flying high in the table, morale in the camp is really high as well.

"We've got momentum now. Last season there were games which we felt we were unlucky in, but we're really enjoying things at the moment, winning games, and with that you do earn a bit more luck, too.

"You really look forward to the games coming thick and fast."

This season so far has been a real highlight for Craig, who has been in and out of the side mainly due to injury, but has had a good run of games in recent months since returning to action in the win over Peterborough at the back end of 2017.

"From the start of the season I felt there was some real positivity. We have some great lads in the dressing room, the fans are going in their numbers away from home and they're starting to come back to Ewood Park, too.

"I don't feel the expectancy from the fans. As a footballer you should be expectant of yourself. If you lose a game you really feel it in the dressing room."
