Rovers winger Craig Conway said scoring the second goal against Bradford at Ewood Park let out plenty of emotion and frustration from him.

Craig admits it's been an up and down season for him, with injuries playing a big part in his campaign being one of annoyance on a personal level.
 
But back fit and free of injury, the Scot made a return off the bench and sealed the win within seconds of entering the action, confidently tucking home with just nine minutes of the game remaining.
 
“I enjoyed it tonight," he said to iFollow Rovers with a beaming smile. "I scored with my second touch so it was a good night all round. It’s been a while since I was standing here in front of the cameras.
 
“It’s a massive win, especially playing on the Thursday night with things going against us like Charlie [Mulgrew]’s unavailability and Danny [Graham] pulling out last minute. We also had Darragh [Lenihan] come off but we were really good tonight.
 
“There was a lot of frustration in my celebration because of - it’s been well documented - my season being full of little niggles and injuries which I’ve never had before.
 
“It was great to get back on the park and back scoring again. It’s not been nice sitting at home injured."
 
And overall, the 32-year-old was delighted with a real team performance, with the clean sheet moving goalkeeper David Raya onto 14 clean sheets this season and to the top of the Golden Glove league.
 
“It was a good performance, a good result and a clean sheet as well," Conway added. "We have said so many times that if we keep a clean sheet then because we have so much going forward we are always going to score.
 
“We have players who can do something out of nothing. After an hour it was getting tight but the game freed up a little and it was a great ball through to Dacky [Bradley Dack] to get us on our way."
 
Don't forget that Rovers are back in action on Easter Monday when we head down to Milton Keynes Dons in Sky Bet League One. Tickets remain available for the clash against Dan Micciche's men and can be purchased by clicking here.
