Bradley Dack scored in three successive league games for the first time in his career, with his close range finish at Reading proving to be the difference in Berkshire on Saturday afternoon.
The 25-year-old chalked up his 100th game in blue-and-white, and registered a very impressive 40th Rovers goal in all competitions.
His close range finish proved to be the goal that counted in Berkshire, and arrived after Adam Armstrong got off the mark for the campaign with a superb curling finish.
John Swift ensured Rovers would have to defend well to get the points, and all in all it turned out to be a decent afternoon's work for Dack.
“It was a great day for me to get to 100 games for this club and make it 40 goals in that time with the match-winner," he said with a beaming smile after the game.
“We got the three points against a good Reading side who like to try and play the right way.
“We had a plan to try and stop them and I felt we did that in the first half hour of the first half and managed to get the second goal at the start of the second half.
“They played well after that, got a goal back and made it tough for us in the next 10-15 minutes. After that I feel we controlled things okay.
“We had a couple of good chances and could have scored more, but all in all it’s a good result away from home," he added.
“We got in some good positions at times and their goalkeeper produced a few good stops as well.
“The ambition is to push for those top six places, particularly when you look at the teams in this league. Anyone can beat anyone.”
