Life in the old dog yet, says Graham

The 33-year-old admits it's "the best I've felt in a good number of years" after bagging his 15th of the season

14 April 2019

Career league goal number 150 was chalked up for Danny Graham on Saturday afternoon, and the experienced frontman says he's still got plenty of time left to add to that tally.

One of the contenders for the Player of the Year award, Graham hit his 15th of the season early in the second half against Nottingham Forest, and with it bagged his latest milestone.

And the frontman, who has appeared almost 600 times in his 13-year career, still believes he's got plenty left to give to the team, admitting it's "the best I've felt in a good number of years," even at 33.

“I'm delighted to get goal number 150 in the league and I'm delighted it's come at Blackburn Rovers," a beaming Graham told iFollow Rovers after the game.

“I'm proud of the milestone and probably will only reflect on that when my career is over.

“I want to add more this season and still believe I have a good couple of years left in me, hopefully in the Championship.

“To do that I need to keep myself fit, look after myself and do things right.

“As a striker you will miss chances at times, you just need to make dure you put the next one away.

“I'm pleased to be contributing to the team and I'd say the last 18 months or so it's probably the best I've felt in a good number of years.

“I've stated it a number of times that I love it at this football club and I think you can see that in the way I perform on the pitch."

And on the race for the Rovers golden boot, Graham says he's going to continue hunting down Bradley Dack, who, with 16 strikes in all competitions this term, is one goal ahead of the hitman.

“I've spoken to Dacky and told him that I'm coming for him," Graham added with a grin.

"Knowing Dacky though he'll probably score next week and I won't!

“In all seriousness though, we're really good mates and push each other on, so let's keep going.”
