Blackburn Rovers held on for dear life as they managed to take away an unlikely point in a match that had pretty much everything.
Penalty claim ✅
Poor Defending ✅
Long range wonder striker ✅
Smallwood in goal ✅ (wait what?)
Thats right Richard Smallwood had to go between the sticks to help rescue a point as David Raya was struck in the face by Jay Rodriguez. At that point the match was level at 1-1.
Before that West Brom took the lead through some shoddy defense by Rovers which lead to a corner and goal by Dawson.
Rovers entered the 2nd half with more attacking gumpf and with continued pressing eventually took the lead through Harrison Reed who was by far the best player on the pitch.
Then the drama with Raya and Smallwood made for an exhilarating match which we held on for a point. West Brom will be kicking themselves as they missed the chance to go away with all 3 points.
Later on the channel a more detailed review of the match including words from the gaffa.
