Leeds United vs Blackburn Rovers (3-2) - Match Review

Sign in to follow this  



Blackburn Rovers make it back to back defeats as they lose in a 5 goal thriller against top of the table Leeds United.

Leeds took the lead through a big fat own goal by Derrick Williams. ย Rovers looked 2nd best throughout the first half as Leeds had plenty of chances to extend that lead.

Rovers got back into the match shortly into the 2nd half after we were awarded a penalty which Cpt Fantastic scored to level the scorline at 1-1.

Rovers then took the lead deep into the latter stages of the match, when Rothwell was brought down in a promising area. ย Mulgrew converted a beautiful free kick to give Rovers an unexpected lead.

The lead didn't last long, as Kemar Roofe leveled the game once more, less than a minute later, and Roofe again stole all 3 points with the winner in injury time.
