DANNY Graham’s winning goal Blackburn’s 2-1 win against Nottingham Forest was his 150th career goal.

The win at the City Ground started with Joe Rothwell scoring a beauty to give Rovers the lead and Graham finished from close range to put his side in a two-goal lead. Ryan Yates got a goal back for Forest, but Rovers defended strongly to take the three points back to Lancashire.

Graham thinks Rovers conceding the goal is the story of their season - making things hard for themselves.

“It’s one of them, I knew it was coming up, but it’s all about the team at the minute,” said Graham.

“We were on a bad run, so we wanted to get some wins under our belt, and we’ve done that. It’s nice to get it when we’ve won the game.

“I’ll probably look back at it when my career’s over – sit down and think it’s a really good achievement.

“At the minute I’m thinking about adding more to my tally and doing well for Blackburn Rovers.”

The striker was never looking over his shoulder with the league table, as some people had suggested his side could be creeping towards a relegation fight.

“I don’t think we’ve looked over our shoulder to be honest, other people have mentioned it, but I never felt like we were getting dragged in to a relegation battle.

“I know what we’re capable of and it doesn’t reflect where we are. If you look at the number of times, we’ve scored two goals and not won games, we should be no where near where we are.

“We should be looking up the table rather than behind us. Like I say, it’s a young team and that consistency will come.”

Rovers conceded a goal straight after going in to a two-goal lead, this is something that has hampered them all season the striker highlighted.

“I think that’s been the story of our season – when we get in a comfortable position, we seem to concede or do a daft mistake to let teams back in to it,” added the 33-year-old.

“It’s cost us, but listen, we dug in and that’s to wins on the bounce now.

“Forest is a tough place to come, but we’ve shown our determination and it’s a pleasing three points.”

Darragh Lenihan and Derrick Williams both performed well at the heart of the Rovers defence as they had to dig in deep to keep hold of the three points.

“I thought they were massive, they got a lot of balls out of our box and put their bodies on the line when they had to,” said Graham.

“I’m pleased for them, they were looking for a clean sheet, but that wasn’t the case.

“They’ve probably won us the three points with their performances.”

Rovers face a trip to London on Good Friday as they play QPR at Loftus Road.
