Not much would be the answer from Paul Lambert apparently.

Tony Watt’s impact, in the Blackburn win over Middlesbrough on Tuesday, has ben praised by Lambert who feels the former Celtic and Charlton striker showed his best form since his arrival in that victory.

Lambert brought the Scottish international back into the starting XI for the visit of Boro with him helping us to this two-one win.

Watt was in from the off and stayed on for an hour with Lambert telling rovers.co.uk this was, in his opinion, the best hour we’ve seen from his since his loan arrival from Charlton.

‘I think that is the best that Tony Watt has been for the hour that he was on. He’s not been in the team due to the form of other guys, but I thought the night was the time to bring him in.’

Having helped to play his part in a third successive home win the boss now has a decision to make, well another one, having opted to drop Elliott Bennett to the bench for that win at Ewood Park.

Explaining that decision he added.

‘I left Elliott Bennett out, who has arguably been one of our better players, because of amount of work-rate that he has been doing over the last few weeks. We changed it around a little bit and got a great win.’

It certainly was a great win, now we’ll look to follow it up against Lancashire rivals Burnley, who we visit on Saturday!

Do you think Watt will keep his place in the starting XI?
