So the 35-year wait to beat Blackburn Rovers is finally over.

Victory over the old enemy just along the M65 certainly tastes sweet.

After years of pain, hurt and ridicule, the hoodoo has been well and truly buried. So let us savour the moment for a day at least.

But we cannot rest on our laurels as there is a bigger and more lucrative prize at stake rather than just local bragging rights. Promotion to the Premier League would not just bring tens of millions into the Turf Moor coffers, it would once again propel Burnley onto the world stage and give our town another mighty lift. That prize is incalcuable.
