Rovers midfielder Elliott Bennett says he has no excuses for not finding the net more than twice this season, and has his eyes on a goal or two more in the remaining nine games this season.

After a long wait for his first strike of the season, which came in superb fashion at AFC Wimbledon, Bennett, who has played on the wing, central midfield and right back, followed that up a few days later with another goal against Wigan.

And he's well aware that with the likes of Charlie Mulgrew, Bradley Dack and Danny Graham on 10+ goals each, the pressure is on to get close to the trio in the goalscoring stakes.

"Big Charlie (Mulgrew) is playing centre-half and he’s scored 12, so you can’t blame it on where you play," he admitted.

"Maybe sometimes where I’m playing, the role that the gaffer has asked me to do is to stop the other team and play on the front foot with Richie (Smallwood) in there and feed the forward lads and I think we’ve done that quite successfully this season and the lads in the forward areas are obviously reaping the benefits from that."

So, aside from personal achievements, what's needed from the team for the remainder of the campaign?

"We have the points and need to make sure we keep putting in performances and keep being committed," the versatile 29-year-old concluded.
