It had been a long 26-game run without a goal for Ben Brereton in Rovers colours, but the relief was there for all to see as the young striker pounced to get off the mark for the club against Bolton Wanderers.

Starting in place of Danny Graham up front, the 20-year-old took just under half an hour to bag his and Rovers' first against the Whites, in a game Tony Mowbray's men went on to win comfortably.

And speaking after the game, a delighted Ben was thrilled to show the fans what he can do on home turf.

"I needed that for myself and confidence, it was brilliant," he beamed after the game.

"It was great to get my first goal and a great team performance.

"It was on my weak foot but it’s something I’ve been working on in training and it’s becoming habit.

"I have been working hard in training but knew I needed to take that out on the pitch and show people what I can do. I felt I did well," the 20-year-old frontman admitted.

"I think I should have had two or three but let's not be greedy!

"The creativity we have, the likes of Dacky, Arma and Rothwell, they're great to have in any team.

"We have stuck together as a team and have these last four games have shown what a good team we can be.

"We will look to take that in to the end of the season, have a good rest and comeback for pre-season."
