It was a Man of the Match performance from Lewis Travis against West Bromwich Albion at Ewood Park, and his manager Tony Mowbray was "delighted" by what he saw from the youngster.

The dynamic midfielder showed his quality against Sheffield United at the weekend, and was rewarded with a first home league start against the Albion.
The 21-year-old was everywhere in his midfield position, producing a dominant display against experienced campaigners Gareth Barry and James Morrison.
“I’m delighted for Lewis Travis. He has a winning mentality and is a young footballer who is in a hurry to play football and progress," the boss reflected after the game.
“He’s grabbed the opportunity that’s come his way over the last week. In the previous game, I felt he was fantastic at Bramall Lane, competing against one of the top sides in the division.
“Today, against some experienced campaigners he was like a trojan. He played forward and was everywhere.
“It’s about taking opportunities when they come your way, and Trav has certainly taken his chance. He’s in the forefront of our minds.
“I’ve had lots of conversations with Trav, and lots of conversations with probably about half a dozen managers who would like to take him on loan.
“We’ll see how it goes. The fact that he’s in the team and helping us win suggests that he’s worth keeping.
“My job is to look after the football club. The team at the moment is the most important thing for us."
