Another live Sky Sports game, another goal, another Man of the Match award for Rovers star Bradley Dack.

Following four games missed in almost a month through injury, Dack returned to the starting XI for the visit of Aston Villa to Ewood Park on Saturday.

His neat flick broke the deadlock in the second half to confirm a fifth goal in seven games in all competitions for the playmaker, who continues to impress in his debut season in the Championship.

And his boss Tony Mowbray is thrilled with what he's seeing from the 24-year-old.

“Bradley’s a very talented player. We spoke to Bradley when we first brought him here about him scoring goals from his number 10 position," Mowbray said.

“Each season people will look at how many goals you score in a season and it’s vital if you play in the top part of the pitch, which he does.

“The standard of this league doesn’t faze him and he could have had another goal as well. It looks like he is onside – [Alan] Hutton is playing him on at the back post.

"He's an important player for us. He can keep the ball and make things happen. He's not just a show pony with tricks; he gets in the box, works hard for the team and scores goals."

There was little doubt that Dack would find the Championship to his liking then?

"I had no fear that Bradley would step up to the mark at this level," Tony added to iFollow Rovers.

"I had James Maddison, who is now at Leicester, playing under me at Coventry in League One and now he's doing it in the Premier League. Brad's come from League One as well so there was never any doubt he'd step up.

"Bradley's a big part of our squd, we're all delighted he's with us and producing the goods."
