David Dunn turned his thoughts to absent manager Sam Allardyce after inspiring Blackburn to a 2-0 victory over Bolton.
Allardyce is to undergo an operation on a coronary artery and will be missing for the next couple of games at least.
Dunn was delighted to see Rovers pick up three points and end a run of ten straight defeats away from home.
"We all wish him the best with his operation. Maybe he should stay away a little bit more," the midfielder joked on Sky Sports.
Dunn scored his fifth league goal of the season to set Rovers on their way to success and he hopes to double that tally at least.
"I had a good couple of seasons a few years ago and hopefully I can get into double figures this season," he targeted.
Blackburn have now moved into mid-table after a difficult recent period and Dunn is now looking for a period of consolation.
He said: "We had a tough October. So many hard games in that month. We have 10 games now where we feel we can really push on and it is going to really make or break us."
Blackburn captain Ryan Nelsen added of Allardyce's situation: "It was a major shock to us, especially when we knew it was the heart.
"He's a big man so he must need a big ticker to keep him going. But it will take a lot to knock over that old elephant."
