Tony Mowbray believes Corry Evans' performance in Thursday's 2-0 win over Bradford was his best in a Rovers shirt to date.

The Northern Irishman put in a superb performance at the heart of the Blues midfield and was a contender for the Man of the Match award, which eventually went to Bradley Dack.

Asked about Evans after the game, Mowbray was full of praise for the 27-year-old, and has challenged him to maintain the standard he has set for the remainder of the run-in.

“He played like a man possessed!" the boss told reporters.

"I just said there that tonight’s performance was the best I’ve seen from Corry since he’s been here.

"I’ve always known that he’s a good footballer but felt he needed to push himself to those levels.

"You push yourself to your best and then try to find some more and I think Corry did that tonight.

"My staff were panicking that he was going to run out of legs with 20 minutes to go but Corry excelled tonight.

"He was brilliant at controlling play and picking passes and I’ve said to him that’s the standard now for the last eight games."

Corry and Rovers will look to take another step towards automatic promotion when we travel to take on MK Dons on Monday afternoon.
