Whilst there's little more than nine points to play for for Rovers this season, there's still plenty at stake for attacking duo Bradley Dack and Danny Graham.

The pair have been battling it out all season in terms of goals, with it being a case of when one scores, so does the other, for Tony Mowbray's outfit.

After Graham leveled Dack's tally of 16 strikes for the season in all competitions, the latter moved one ahead once more with a close-range finish that proved to be the winning goal against Queens Park Rangers on Friday.

And discussing the battle for the Rovers Golden Boot, Dack's happy for the battle to continue against his partner in crime!

“All goals count and it's a friendly rivalry between me and Danny to be honest," the playmaker told iFollow Rovers with a grin.

"As long as we get the three points nothing else matters.

“We both want to finish as top goalscorer, we will see how it works out in the end.

“If I'm one-on-one with a goalkeeper and he's open for a tap in then of course I'll square it for him. We both want to win, so it's about putting the chances away when they come our way.

“It would be nice for me to beat last season's tally. I'd like to get to 18 league this season," the 25-year-old admitted.

“I think I'm on 14 at the moment, so it's going to be a tough ask for me to get four goals in three games, but that's what I'm aiming for.”
