Aston Villa vs Blackburn Rovers (2-1) – Match Review


Blackburn Rovers returned to Sky Bet Championship football with a 2-1 defeat to Aston Villa at Villa Park.

Goals from Tammy Abraham and Tyrone Mings gave Villa a two goal lead. Rovers had to turn to Amari Bell to provide any hope as Blackburn pushed for an equalizer.

The win continues a torrid spell for Rovers as their season draws to a close. Where as Villa will hope this win edges them closer to securing a playoff spot.
