Swansea City vs Blackburn Rovers (3-1) - Match Review - 2018/19

Sign in to follow this  



Swansea City bounce back from their defeat on Saturday and claimed an impressive win over Blackburn Rovers at the Liberty Stadium.

Despite taking the lead with a Charlie Mulgrew penalty Rovers threatened very little but still went into half time with their noses in front.

Swansea did create multiple chances, and exploded out of the blocks in the 2nd half.  Rovers held firm until a shot by Fulton hit the post and bounced off the back of David Raya into the net to levels the scores.

A second Swansea goal soon followed by Roberts, before they ran away with the points with a 3rd and final goal by Celina.

Swansea much better than their league position suggests and should expect to see them climb the table.
