Diamond Dack so key for us

He finished as Rovers' top goalscorer this season, and Tony Mowbray was quick to pay tribute to Bradley Dack

11 May 2019

He finished as the club's top goalscorer with 18 strikes to match his tally from last season, and Bradley Dack has drawn praise for his work this term by manager Tony Mowbray.

A blistering start to his first season as a Championship player saw the 25-year-old find the net eight times in his opening 10 games in all competitions.
 
And after pipping Danny Graham in the race to finish Rovers' top goalscorer, Mowbray has heaped credit on the playmaker for his efforts this term.
 
“He’s had brilliant spells as well as spells where he’s gone a little off the boil as well," Mowbray admitted to iFollow Rovers when discussing the number 23.
 
"But maybe that’s acceptable in his first season at this level as he tries to maintain those standards.
 
"He’s a brilliant kid, a joy to work with and wants to win every five-a-side match as well as every game.
 
“He hates being taken off, he loves to win and wants to play. We should enjoy him and encourage him as much as we can.
 
“He's someone who scores the goals without playing as a striker, without that number 9 on his back," the boss added.
 
“He plays deep, he battles for the team and gets in the six-yard box to get goals."
