DRFC Sharp delighted with the win

DRFC Sharp delighted with the win

Billy Sharp was delighted to score twice against one of his former clubs Scunthorpe United but was much more happier with the result than his personal performance.

Speaking on the official website, Sharp said, "I enjoyed it, but the most important thing was that we got the win."

Sharp scored his fourth and fifth goals of the season as Rovers came from an early goal down to win 3-1 with James O`Connor adding the third.

The club record transfer as now scored three goals in his last three games and looks to be finding the goalscoring form that brought him to the club on a full time basis during the summer.

The 24 year old enjoyed a successful season on loan last season from Sheffield United when he scored 15 goals for the club before injury brought a premature end to his season in March.

Sharp despite playing well was struggling to find his goalscoring form in the early part of the season and had just two goals from penalties to show for his hard work in the opening eight games of the season.

After his goal in Rovers recent away game at Coventry and now two against Scunthorpe, he will be hoping that he can get on a similar run that saw him score in six consecutive games during November and December last season.

Rovers can now look forward to two home games in the next week. They start with a game against Derby on Tuesday night before Sharp gets the chance to face his old club Sheffield United in front of the live TV cameras on Saturday.

Sharp had to sit out the two games between the two sides last season, due to the terms of his loan agreement but I am sure he will be looking forward to showing his former employees just what he is capable of after he netted on just eleven occasions for the Blades in two seasons.

5 goals in 11 games certainly looks much better. He's definitely a team player and he works his socks off for Rovers. He will definitely beat last seasons goal tally if he keeps injury free. Got to get my money on him for first goal next Saturday.

He's now scored 20 in 46 games for Rovers, definitely worth every penny the board spent on him.
