Fresh from last night’s EFL Awards ceremony where Bradley Dack saw himself crowned the League One Player of the Season, in response to his words about lifting the trophy once again, Blackburn Rovers’ fans have set him a new challenge as the season of 2017/18 comes to an end.
Absolutely delighted to win this but couldn’t of done it without the help of all my team mates and the staff at the club. Been a good night but now for the most important thing and that is making sure we get promoted #4togo @Rovers @EFL https://t.co/r6viSDCwgY

Reflecting on his win on Sunday evening down in London as he saw off Wigan Athletic’s Nick Powell and Peterborough United’s Jack Marriott, Dack told the Official Site that although he was obviously pleased to add the award to his mantelpiece, in his mind all the credit had to go to his colleagues and club staff for his win.
“I’m absolutely delighted, it’s a huge honour to win this award. I couldn’t have done this without my team-mates, the manager and staff at the club, so I’d like to thank all of them. I’m delighted.”
Congratulations @BradDacks40 and very well deserved ????????????????????????

Dack went on to admit that when he first arrived at the club he found it difficult to settle in, especially with the injuries he picked up, but once he got going properly he got plenty of help from the team and he felt he’d kicked on nicely from there.
There was a single aim for the season though and that should go without saying.
“It’s been a good night but the most important thing now is making sure we get promoted.”
Congratulations! Ok, straight to bed, prepare for Thursday, the show must go on. ???????????? #PromotionParty

Four games to go, so there’s still time for him to add to his goal and assist tally for the season.
