Blackburn Rovers vs Reading (2-2) – Match Review – 2018/19

Blackburn Rovers returned to Ewood Park to try and continue their fine start to the 2018-19 Championship season.

However they found themselves in deep water at half time being 2 goals down to a plucky Reading. The visitors scored both goals via defensive howlers by Rovers and they were scored by Bödvarsson.

Rovers were hit by a couple of injuries both before the match and during the match, as midfield dynamo Bradley Dack and Kasey Palmer both ruled out, whereas during the match both Adam Armstrong and Dominic Samuel where substituted due to injuries.

Regardless Rovers fought back via 2 penalties scored by Cpt Charlie Mulgrew to maintain our unbeaten start to the Championship season.
