Substitutes are brought on to make an impression in games and Ben Brereton certainly did after appearing from the bench against QPR today.

The teenager was thrown in with time running out, and within just five minutes of joining the action he earned a penalty.

Bradley Dack stepped up and sent Joe Lumley the wrong way, and afterwards the 19-year-old was pleased with his impact.

“They are good, compact, a difficult opponent but we worked hard, got the result and move up the table," the striker reflected.

“They are four or five games unbeaten so it’s a good team that we’ve got three points off.

“If the gaffer puts me on I’ll always do my best, work hard for the team and hope to help with goals.

“As long as I’m playing I’m happy, it doesn’t matter where it is. I’ll always work hard for the team."

The Nottingham Forest loanee also felt the referee made the right call by pointing to the spot for Dack's late winner.

“I think it was a penalty. I felt that bit of contact and went down. Thankfully the referee gave it despite not really being on our side today," Brereton added.

“I wanted the penalty, but Dacky’s taken the ball and he’s a top lad so I decided to let him have it!

“We’re always pushing each other in training and telling each other to do more. That shows off with the results so we’re hoping to keep pushing and pushing up that table.

“Any team that comes here will know they are in for a good game. We’re excellent at Ewood Park and long may that good record continue."
