Tony Mowbray welcomed three vital points as Blackburn moved top of League One with a 2-0 win over Bury at Ewood Park, despite it not being their greatest performance.

Rovers were booed off at the break and needed second half goals from Danny Graham and Adam Armstrong to settle the game.

The win leaves Rovers top of the table, two points clear of Shrewsbury Town, with 13 games of the season remaining.

Speaking after the game, the boss told the club website that he’s not getting carried away by the result, and is already looking ahead to the next game.

“We aren’t getting too excited,” he told reporters. “We can all see that Wigan have three games in hand and generally win their games in this league.”

“It’s important that we won tonight because that seven-point gap from Rotherham feels pretty comfortable.”

“You never know, and you can always hit a bad run as Wigan have lately, but it’s about how you react.”

“You need to keep your nerve sometimes and we’ve had to do that as well. The lads are very focused and know what’s expected.”

Dack was at his best in the second half to inspire Blackburn to victory, putting in a fantastic performance earning himself man-of-the-match which included an assist for Danny Graham’s opener.

“We’ve come to expect it from Bradley, he’s being doing it all year for us once he acclimatised to the group and he showed what a talent he is,” the boss said.

“He has to keep it going and see if he can play his part in the final 13 games and see how many wins we can get.”

“I thought Jack Payne was ‘amazing’ and he must be sitting here there thinking ‘how do I get in the team?’. I do when I see what he can do with the football and how he can keep us going forward, link the play, we’ve got some good players and Bradley isn’t the only one.”

“Danny Graham with nine goals in his last 10 home games is amazing, Armstrong has settled in, Amari’i was good.”
