ROVERS’ TRIO HIT GROUND RUN­NING

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP - By Pippa Field

DANNY GRA­HAM is lov­ing life as part of a new-look Black­burn front three.

Striker Gra­ham ar­rived at Ewood Park in Jan­uary on loan from Sun­der­land and joined fel­low new re­cruits Jordi Gomez and Tony Watt – who also joined last month on loan from the Black Cats and Charl­ton re­spec­tively – in at­tack in last week­end’s 1-1 draw with Mid­dles­brough.

Gra­ham, 30, is pre­dict­ing big things for the trio.

“I’ve played with Jordi at Sun­der­land so I know what he is all about and what abil­ity he has,” he said.

“On his day he has a wand of a left foot. He man­aged to get one on Satur­day but his work ethic, his touch, his move­ment, ev­ery­thing was spot-on. Hope­fully he can be a big player for us.

“I didn’t know so much about Tony. Ob­vi­ously, ev­ery­body has seen his goal for Celtic against Barcelona and he’s got a lot of hype to live up to with that.

“But, for a young lad, he’s come in and done well, and he was a real threat on Satur­day. He’s good on the ball and, hope­fully, we can work well to­gether.”

PRAISE: Danny Gra­ham
