Harrison Reed may have only been at Rovers for a couple of months, but the Southampton loanee is already making quite an impact at Ewood Park.

Reed's already scored more goals this term than he did during the whole of last season during a loan at Norwich City, the latest of which was the equalising goal at West Bromwich Albion.
And reflecting on the performance and point, Reed believes Rovers may have gone on to win the game were it not for finishing the game with 10 men after David Raya's horror injury.
“It’s a massive result for us. We came out all guns blazing, got the goal at a good time and felt we’d perhaps go on to win the game," Reed recollected to iFollow Rovers.
"We got the unfortunate injury to David, who we hope gets better soon.
“I felt we were on top at that point. We do finishing the day before the game and it was great to see the ball go in, especially in front of the fans.
“Apart from a couple of crosses that he came for and missed, I felt Dickie [Richie Smallwood] did really well stepping into the void!" he joked.
“It’s a special, special group we have. The manager, coaching staff, players and fans, I’m really proud to be a part of it all here.
“It was a real team effort - Trav did really well and blocked one on the line. It shows we have people ready to slip in. People are ready off the bench to help the team.
Harrison's already struck up a relationship with the Rovers supporters, and the 23-year-old adds that he massively appreciates the backing from the stands.
“I can’t thank the fans enough for the support they’ve given me since I came here," he said.
“It makes me feel great inside and when I hear them sing my name it spurs me on even more. I really appreciate it.
“Since I have come here it’s a club as one between the fans, players and staff."
