Leeds United vs Blackburn Rovers (3-2) – Match Review

Blackburn Rovers make it back to back defeats as they lose in a 5 goal thriller against top of the table Leeds United.

Leeds took the lead through a big fat own goal by Derrick Williams. Rovers looked 2nd best throughout the first half as Leeds had plenty of chances to extend that lead.

Rovers got back into the match shortly into the 2nd half after we were awarded a penalty which Cpt Fantastic scored to level the scorline at 1-1.

Rovers then took the lead deep into the latter stages of the match, when Rothwell was brought down in a promising area. Mulgrew converted a beautiful free kick to give Rovers an unexpected lead.

The lead didn’t last long, as Kemar Roofe leveled the game once more, less than a minute later, and Roofe again stole all 3 points with the winner in injury time.

Blackburn Rovers vs Norwich City (0-1) – Match Review

Blackburn Rovers ended their home form in 2018 with a defeat to high flyers Norwich City. The Canaries left it late to score the one and only goal which came on the 81st minute thanks to top scorer Teemu Puuki.

Rovers kept Norwich at bay for the majority of the match, and looked destined for a point, however we ultimately ended the match with 10 men as Harrison Reed picked up an injury late on after all subs were used.

Doesn’t get much easier for Rovers as we take on Leeds United and Sheffield United to end the calendar year.

Blackburn Rovers vs Birmingham City (2-2) – Match Review

 

Blackburn Rovers let slip a two goal lead against Birmingham City to draw 2-2 at Ewood Park.

Rovers looked comfortably in control of the match taking the lead via a Danny Graham header courtesy of a Harrison Reed free kick.

Rovers doubled their lead thanks to a tight angled strike by substitute Adam Armstrong to give Rovers a two goal cushion.

Birmingham chipped back into the game via a penalty after David Raya made a hash of a catch, the goal scored by Gardner (not sure which one). And finally Che Adams scored the leveler for Birmingham.

Both chances had opportunities to win it, but ultimately it ended in a draw.

Wigan Athletic vs Blackburn Rovers (3-1) – Match Review

Another shambolic performance form Blackburn Rovers as we are beaten by Wigan Athletic 3-1 at the DW Stadium.

No real response from Rovers following their defeat on the weekend against Preston, as Rovers lacked ideas and any attacking urgency.

Problems at the back gave Wigan opportunities to score and they took full advantage.

The only conciliation for Rovers was a late own goal which gave them a small lifeline, that was later taken away. Not great, we need a win fast!

Preston North End vs Blackburn Rovers (4-1) – Match Review

Rovers were 2 goals down after the first 10 minutes of the match then had it all to do to try and salvage anything.

However despite scoring very early in the 2nd half thanks to a goal by Danny Graham, it was not mean to be as Preston added 2 more late goals to take home all three points and some local pride.

Blackburn Rovers will enter the international break on the back of a draw against Rotherham United.

Blackburn Rovers vs Queens Park Rangers (1-0) – Match Review – 2018/19

 

Blackburn Rovers picked up a valuable win at Ewood Park against a resurgent Queens Park Rangers.

The only goal of the game came from the spot after Ben Brereton was fouled and with Charlie Mulgrew out of action the responsibility was placed on the shoulders of Bradley Dack to score which he did.

Besides that the game offered little opportunities for either side, QPR will feel a little hard done by as they were so close to sealing an valuable away point.

Next up for Rovers another home match this time against Rotherham United. As for QPR they head back to Loftus Road for Brentford.

In this video we get words from the gaffa (and fireworks), plus some match analysis.

Rovers: Leutwiler, Bennett (c), Lenihan, Williams, Bell, Evans, Smallwood (Palmer, 63), Reed, Dack, Armstrong (Brereton, 80), Graham (Rothwell, 74).

West Bromwich Albion vs Blackburn Rovers (1-1) – Match Review – 2018/19

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.
