Bradley Dack is backing his ability to succeed in the Premier League, and hopes a little help from his team-mates can get him there sooner rather than later.

Dack has made no secret of his ambitions to play in the top flight, but three years on from his move to Ewood Park, hopes to achieve those dreams in Rovers colours.

The attacker is on the comeback trail from a cruciate knee ligament injury that will rule him out for much of the calendar year.

However, the 26-year-old is hoping if the season returns, with Rovers three points outside the top six, that his Premier League ambitions could soon be realised.

Dack, twice a League One player of the year, got his first taste of Championship football last season and after 24 goals in the second tier before injury struck in December, believes he is among the best players in the division. He said: “There’s a line between confidence and arrogance but I would always back my ability and say yes.

“I believe I’m among the top players in the Championship and you have to have that mindset if you want to go to the next level.

“I’m an ambitious person, I want to play at the highest level I can, and that’s the Premier League, and hopefully that’s with Rovers.

“That would be the dream and the aim to get there with Blackburn.”

Dack has missed 14 games since sustaining the season-ending injury in the 0-0 draw with Wigan on December 23.

Rovers have kept up their pursuit of a top-six finish in his absence, missing a chance to climb in to the play-offs for the first time this season when beaten by Derby County in their final match before the season was suspended indefinitely.

Dack will be an interested observer should the season resume, and the suspension has certainly eased the number of matches he will miss through injury.

His contract at Ewood Park runs to the summer of 2021, though Rovers have a 12-month extension in the deal he signed following promotion to the Championship which they are expected to trigger.

And coming back to fitness with Rovers in the Premier League is Dack’s dream.

He added: “If the boys could do it this season, if it finishes, without needing my help that would be brilliant.

“But I’d love to be part of it if I could. A few of the boys have done it from the Championship to the Premier League and I speak to them about it all the time.

“They say it’s the best feeling and obviously to play in the Premier League in top stadiums every week would be an amazing experience and something I want to do in my career and something I will make sure happens.”
