Blackburn Rovers longstanding unbeaten home record has come to an end as Sheffield United claim all 3 points in a one sided match at Ewood Park.
Two goals from Championship goalscorer Billy Sharp was enough for Sheffield United as the climb to joint top of the league.
Rovers looked far from their best tonight and offered little in response, with only a couple of fleeting chances.
They will hope to bounce back rapidly as they take on North West rivals Bolton Wanderers on Saturday.
In this video we hear from the gaffa Tony Mowbray about the result, also look at some analysis plus some tweets from the fans.
