"I thought we were excellent from start to finish," the Rovers boss said after the 1-0 win at the Riverside.

"In the first half we controlled the tempo of the game. Some of our movements were as good as any seen this year.

"We created problems all day long. In the second half we expected a response but we never really felt in danger of losing the game. At the back we were excellent.

"I was really pleased for Nonda. He is a great player and he showed that today. His career has been hit with injuries but he is with us now and I was delighted for him.

"Nonda scored with a towering header at the far post. He hung in the air and took his chance well.

"We are now on a run of four games unbeaten. We will try to maintain that form and look ahead to the UEFA Cup-tie against Salzburg. We want to finish the job.''
