Tommy Spurr made his return to the starting XI for Blackburn in midweek when he put in a man of the match performance as Rovers came back to secure a late one-all draw with QPR.

Spurr’s admitted to his (as you would expect) frustration during his injury layoff, and not being able to play a game since September, but when Paul Lambert informed him he was in the starting line up he said he was ‘buzzing.’

Having got that appearance under his belt he’s told rovers.co.uk he’s now going to keep working hard to ensure he can keep himself in the side or thereabout.

‘I was buzzing when the gaffer named the team, because I got my chance to stake a claim to play more games. Ever since the gaffer came in, the intensity of training has gone up, so I’ve been working really hard everyday. Not having a game at the end of the week has been frustrating, but I’ve just kept my head down, kept working hard and I finally got a chance. It was nice to be out there again.’

Due to his lack of football for several months he added he’s lacking, obviously, match sharpness but this will come with the more games he plays with him looking to get back to his very best.

He finished by saying he’ll just keep working hard in training in the hope it’ll give the boss a selection problem.

‘I’ll keep working hard in training everyday to try and give the gaffer a bit of a problem in terms of who he wants to pick and to force my way into the team. That’s healthy for the team if people are fighting for positions.’
