Danny's the best finisher I've ever played with

Derrick Williams expects Player of the Year Danny Graham to have a big impact on the team again next season.

Graham may turn 34 in early August, but he remains invaluable to Tony Mowbray and the team for his goals and all round game.
Only Adam Armstrong appeared more than Graham's 46 outings in all competitions, with the experienced hitman weighing in with 16 strikes to his name during a consistent campaign.
And discussing the frontman, Williams is quick to highlight just how the ex-Swansea City man's experience helps the squad off the pitch as well as on it.
“He’s a great guy who helps everyone," Williams told iFollow Rovers when reflecting on the striker's season.
“When I come up against him in training he gives me advice about how to deal with someone like him as a defender.
“I always see him speaking to Joe Nuttall and giving him tips and the same goes for Bezza [Ben Brereton].
“He’s a big character for us and everybody should learn from him. It’s a massive bonus to have him.
“People know him for his strength, but his feet, link up play and runs in behind are unbelievable.
“His stats don’t lie and his finishing in training is outstanding. He scores and sometimes you just shake your head at some of his finishes."
And whilst his personality is infectious, Williams adds that Graham does also get under a certain team-mate's skin - but in a good way!
“He really irritates David [Raya] in training with some of his ridiculous finishes and he’s in the best shape I’ve seen him since I joined," Del said.
“He’s definitely the best finisher I’ve ever played with.”
