Rovers were second best in the first half, with Ben Cabango hitting the woodwork and Jay Fulton poking wide.

But Rovers upped the intensity in a second half and the pressure eventually told in the 89th minute thanks to Daniel Ayala's low header - his first goal of the season. The moment was met with an outpouring of relief from the Ewood Park stands as Rovers ended a run of five Championship games without a win. "Today was a big win," Rovers boss Tomasson said. "If you look at the performance and result, I think it was deserved as well. "After being on the road and playing those two difficult games against Watford and West Brom - two teams who need to go up with Premier League players - when you come home at Ewood Park, where we've celebrated a lot of victories with our fans, we want to win. "In the first half, I was not happy with our first half, that was not the plan. I think we were too passive out of possession, we were not moving the ball quick enough. "We spoke about it at half-time and you saw a great Rovers in the second half - front footed, aggressive, playing quick football. "And (it was) good to see another clean sheet and big Daniel getting his goal which was nice. "The crowd got behind the players, so it's been a good win today and you could see the players believed right to the end after a period with a lot of games. "They were fighting to the end and showed that great spirit and togetherness that this team has."
