It's another point on the board for us

Danny Graham was pleased to get himself back on the scoresheet as Rovers extended their unbeaten run to five games.

Graham bagged his second of the season just four minutes into his return to The Liberty Stadium against Swansea City.

In an odd twist of fate, both of the striker's goals this season have come against former clubs, with the 34-year-old bagging against Middlesbrough earlier in the campaign.

His fourth minute finish on Wednesday night saw the frontman chalk up his 50th league goal in Rovers colours, and although he was thrilled to reach the milestone, there was a tinge of disappointment to not get all three points in south Wales.

“I’m delighted to get my 50th league goal but it’s disappointing not to win after we started so well," the forward reflected to iFollow Rovers after the encounter.

“We’ll get back to the hotel, rest, recover and look forward to Saturday’s game against Bristol City.

“We’ve had a great run and managed to put another point on the board against a really good football team.

“I thought the red cards were very soft," he added when reflecting on the dismissals of Tom Carroll and Bradley Dack, which both came midway through the second half.

"I was surprised by theirs and Dacky was in full control of the ball but for some reason the referee thinks he’s stood on the other guy’s toe.

“That was disappointing because we felt we would be in the driving seat after they went a man down.

“Opportunity will knock for someone on Saturday and we can hopefully show that we can play without Dacky.

“He’s been massive for us since he’s been here, he’ll be a miss, but we have a lot of gifted players who can come in and stake a claim for a starting place.

“It’s nice to get a run in the team and get a goal. But the most important thing is that we’ve been on a good run since I’ve been in the team and have picked up plenty of points.”
