Chelsea 4 Rovers 0


Recommended Posts

Fighting a rear guard action Rovers managed to hold back Chelsea, who had dominated possession, until the half hour mark, when Joe Cole’s cross field pass let in Gudjohnsen to score his first goal of the afternoon.

Within minutes the striker was again on the score sheet, chesting down Lampard's cross before slotting the ball it past Friedel.

Half time 2-0

Within 10 minutes of the restart Gudjohnsen, got his hat-trick from the penalty spot after being brought down by Craig Short on the edge of the box. To add to Rover’s woes old boy Damian Duff made it 4-0 to Chelsea in the 74th minute, with a low speculative shot of the edge of the box, that sneaked in next to Friedel’s left hand post.
