Captain Elliott Bennett says the post-match huddle after the Sheffield Wednesday win wasn’t planned but ‘felt like the right moment’.

Bennett led the huddle on the pitch after the final whistle that brought to an end a thrilling finale at Ewood Park last weekend.

Rovers trailed to Jacob Murphy’s 83rd minute goal and at that stage were staring a fifth defeat in seven matches in the face. But a Tosin Adarabioyo 88th minute equaliser, and injury-time winner from John Buckley, sparked jubilant scenes at Ewood Park.

Tony Mowbray was pleased to see his players demonstrate their togetherness with a huddle at the final whistle, co-ordinated by Bennett, who says it was a spontaneous act, rather than something scripted.

“The huddle wasn’t planned, it just felt like the right moment,” he revealed.

“This has got to be the start,

“We have to show that belief, that resilience, that desire every week now.”

Rovers had taken just two points from a possible 18 heading in to last weekend, but will take confidence from a first comeback win in 18 months when they travel to Elland Road this afternoon.

Despite the poor run, Bennett says no-one ever lost faith that things would come right, and believes the hard work the players put in was finally rewarded against the Owls.

“On the back of the run we’ve been on, to win the way we did is massive, it’s testament to the lads,” he told the club website.

“We deserved to win in the end. The celebrations amongst the lads, it was great.

“It was sweeter to get a win in the 91st minute or whatever it was.

“You need things to go for you in football and the deflection for Bucko’s goal helped us out.

“I felt that we win and lose together and there are a lot of things that get said.

“The boss often says that it’s our team, and sometimes it’s nice just to have the lads together on the pitch.

“Whoever turns out on a Saturday, whoever gets picked, we’re all mates, all get on, we all work hard for the man next to us.”
