Blackburn Rovers vs Derby County City (2-0) - Match Review




Blackburn Rovers got back to winning ways with a amazing performance against high flyers Derby County, coming with a comfortable 2-0 win at Ewood Park.

Rovers hit the ground running and could have scored 5 or 6 in this match had it not been for Derby's strong defense.  The deadlock was broken however via Joe Rothwell who's first goal for the club was a cheeky chip over the Derby keeper.

Rovers added a 2nd right at the death via Bradley Dack who tapped in the final ball after a great build up by Rovers.

If Rovers can deliver this kind of performance week in week out we could have a great season on our hands.  However a bit too late for that.  As for Derby they will need to dig deep to get their playoff push back on track.

Rovers: Raya, E. Bennett (c), Lenihan, Williams, Bell, Travis, Reed (Evans, 90), Rothwell (Armstrong, 81), Dack, Conway, Graham (Nuttall, 90).

Unused substitutes: Leutwiler, Nyambe, Rodwell, Brereton.

Goal: Rothwell, 76

Booked: E. Bennett, 52, Travis 85
