Tony Mowbray was pleased to reward the Rovers supporters with a performance worthy of three points against Sheffield Wednesday.

Danny Graham scored a hat-trick and Bradley Dack also netted as Rovers ended a disappointing week with a 4-2 victory at Ewood Park.

Rovers led in the 11th minute, doubling that eight minutes in to the second half as Dack scored his 12th of the season.

The Owls reduced the arrears through a stunning Lucas Joao strike, but Rovers restored their two goal advantage through Graham’s second of the afternoon.

And despite a David Raya own goal, Graham claimed the matchball with his first hat-trick in 10 years.

Mowbray said: “I’m delighted for the team and for the fans, a lot of them travelled to the two games in the last week and would have left disappointed, so I was pleased we could give them a performance.

“Hopefully they realise everyone is pushing forward for this club.

“It was great to see the front two combining and I’m delighted for Danny Graham with his goals.

“Bradley Dack was the Bradley Dack that we know he can be and he was back to his peak.

“Paul Downing and Craig Conway, players who have been on the periphery, they did a fantastic job for us.

“Downing contributed to our second goal, striding out from the back, and Conway was good going forward and like a Trojan working back.

“It was a performance that we should be proud of and an important three points.”

Rovers started on the front foot and had two excellent chances before Graham put them ahead.

After lacklustre displays in defeats to Preston and Wigan within the last week, Mowbray added: “I think the intensity was back to where we know we can play at.

“After a tough week, a few days of trying to figure it out with the senior players of what we needed to do, but you have to put it in to context that it was the first time in several months since we lost back-to-back matches and it was a bit of a shock to the system.

“I’d like to think I’m more calculated and think that in the Championship against the teams in this league you are going to lose back-to-back games.

“But coming back to Ewood we had to find a level of performance that we did today.

“We got to the intensity levels we do.”

Wednesday twice moved within one goal of Rovers, but Mowbray’s side responded with goals soon after.

And that stopped the potential of a nervy finished, with Mowbray adding: “I think the fact that from 2-0 and being comfortable, Joao scores from 30 yards, and that could have made this team edgy with the week we’ve had.

“But they kept running, playing forward, and scored the third goal.

“They make it 3-2, and it could have become a nervy final few minutes but we kept pushing forward and got our rewards in the end.”
