Sign in to follow this  


Blackburn Rovers lose on the road after a 5 goal thriller against Rotherham United at the New York Stadium.

Rotherham United coming out 3-2 winners after takixng an early lead via Semi Ajayi header from a Will Vaulks long throw.

The Millers held firm till half time, however Rovers started the 2nd half brighter and leveled the scores through Amari Bell's 2nd goal of the season.

However as Rovers do, we could not keep the match level and Rotherham took the lead once again via Williams. ย As Rovers searched to get back into the match Semi Ajayi scored his 2nd goal of the day to put the match out of sight. ย Rovers did have some hope as Charlie Mulgrew scored from the penalty spot in the closing minutes, but it was too little too late.

Massive points for Rotherham, whereas Rovers need to tighten up as we could see us sucked into a relegation vacuum.
