Blackburn Rovers vs Sheffield United (0-2) – Match Review – 2018/19

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.

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

 

Blackburn Rovers maintained their unbeaten home start to the season with a tough draw against a resolute Nottingham Forest team.

Forest had an early chance to take the lead with a penalty, however Lewis Grabban managed to hit the bar on this occasion.

Forest did however get their noses in front with some nice counter attacking football and Grabban made amense and put the ball in the back of the net.

Rovers however dug their heels in and Adam Armstrong managed to squeeze the ball into the net with a cross/shot that beat the Forest keeper. Next up Danny Graham and Bradley Dack linked up again for Dack to tap home Rovers second.

We looked good after that, however Forest were awarded a soft penalty which Grabban this time scored to give them a share of the points.

In this video we hear form the Gaffa Tony Mowbray about the result, we get feedback from Forest fans on what they thought of the result, plus match analysis and more.

Stoke City vs Blackburn Rovers (2-3) – Match Review – 2018/19

Blackburn Rovers picked up a massive 3 points after scrapping a cheeky away win against Stoke City.

Rovers actually cruised to a three goal lead by the opening minutes of the 2nd half, and looked to have secured the win without breaking too much of sweat.

However Stoke clawed their way back into the match, scoring a quick fire double to leave Rovers scrambling. Rovers nearly threw the points away as an effort by sub Peter Crouch nearly made its way into the net, but Blackburn can thank David Raya for his big body save.

The drama was not over for Rovers as Stoke were awarded a penalty in the dying stages of the match, which Stoke failed to convert. A lucky escape in the end.

As for the goals, one for Bradley Dack (of course), Danny Graham and the third by Harrisom Reed.

In this video we take a detailed look back at the match, look at the match stats, hear feed back from the gaffa aswell as what the fans are thinking

Derby County vs Blackburn Rovers (0-0) – Match Review – 2018/19

Blackburn Rovers escape Pride Park with a share of the points as Derby County fail to make all their possession and dominance count in a game that Rovers struggled to get into.

In a match that offered very little to get excited about from a Rovers point of view, the only major opportunity that went our way was a Bradley Dack effort that went close.

Derby on the other hand, looked a real threat from the off, and were so dominant that Tony Mowbray had to make a mid first half substitution. Conway was removed with Danny Graham coming on.

Rovers did start to impose themselves in the last 15 minutes, but we could not really threaten Derby.

However despite the terrible performance, I expect Rovers manger and fans are elated with the result.

In this video we hear from the gaffa Tony Mowbray about the result. Also we get some fan input from both Rovers fan Rob Young and Chris Parsons from the Steve Bloomers Washing Podcast. All that and much more.

Blackburn Rovers vs Aston Villa (1-1) – Match Review – 2018/19

Blackburn Rovers returned to league action as they took on Aston Villa at Ewood Park. Rovers managing to grab a valuable point in the end despite going ahead with only minutes remaining on the clock.

The goals came from Bradley Dack for Blackburn Rovers and Conor Hourihane for Aston Villa.

Dacks goal was a cheeky wee backheel and Conor Hourihane’s was a belter from a free kick.

An honest point in the end, in game which could have gone either way.

Blackburn Rovers opened up their home season with a draw against a very difficult Millwall side.

The match ended with zero goals, however plenty of drama, with Millwall hitting the post 2 in the first half with Rovers hitting the cross bar just the once.

Into the second half, Rovers looked the deadlier, and could have scored a couple of goals to wrap up the points but no joy for Blackburn.

Blackburn Rovers started their new season back in the EFL Championship with a draw against a revamped Ipswich Town.

Despite trailing in the first 5 minutes Rovers took the lead thanks to goals from Danny Graham and the other from Bradley Dack.

It was not until the last minute of normal time when Ipswich clawed themselves back into the match with an equalizer. Bit of a bitter pill to swallow but I would have taken a point if offered at the start of the day.
