Rovers youngster Lewis Travis was beaming with the words of Tony Mowbray after the boss praised the Liverpudlian for his performance against Hull City at the weekend.
The 20-year-old was brought on just before half time against the Tigers and didn't look out of place playing in a slightly unfamiliar position at the heart of the Rovers midfield.
"It's good to get praise. To come on and do well is great for me," Lewis admitted after the game.
"You have to take the opportunities when they come and show what you can add to the team.
"It's always good to come on in first team fixtures and I felt I did better as the game went on.
"It's a shame we didn't get the goal. We played well and matched them - if not were probably better than them - for the last half hour," he added.
"On another day we take those chances and go on to win. It was good to show the boss what you're all about. Playing as a deep lying midfielder you need to put the tackles in and move the ball on to the likes of Dacky [Bradley Dack] or Danny [Graham].
"I want to push on and play a part in what will hopefully be a promotion campaign for the first team."
