In all honesty it doesn’t really matter how it happens, the most important thing is Blackburn keep winning and another victory was secured at Peterborough, which pleased Tony Mowbray most of all.

Steven Taylor had put Peterborough into half time ahead when he headed home. However, Charlie Mulgrew – the League One Player of the Month – had Blackburn level within minutes of the restart, heading in from Bradley Dack’s corner for his fifth goal in four games.

Dack, having previously been denied by Posh goalkeeper Jonathan Bond, finally got on the score sheet when he converted Richie Smallwood’s pass to put Rovers ahead. A counter attack was finished by the former Gillingham midfielder again, extending the lead.

Peterborough had the last say, but Jack Marriott’s added time goal was a consolation as Posh lost captain Jack Baldwin to a second yellow card shortly after.

Victory pleased Mowbray, admittedly he was not overly happy at half time but the reaction after the interval did please him.

‘It was a frustrated dressing room at half-time, we could have been one or two up after 10 minutes after having some great chances early on. We needed to make sure they left that dressing room with a positive mindset and that they went out to win the game,’ Mowbray told the Official Website.

‘We got off to a flying start in the second half and pushed on from there. The third goal in particular I thought was unbelievable, it was a quality goal.’

All Blackburn can do is keep winning and this run has taken us to the brink of an automatic promotion place so he was ‘happy with the result, not so happy with conceding the two goals’ but knows Peterborough ‘have some good players and top teams will come here and find it difficult.’

Mowbray, of course himself the League One Manager of the Month, added: ‘Over the last two months, we’ve seen a team that plays on the front foot – they’re playing at the tempo we’re asking them to play at. The players can see the benefits of how we’re asking them to play and we’re getting the results.’
