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

 

Blackburn Rovers ended their 2018-19 Championship season with a hard fought 2-2 result against Swansea City.

Rovers took the lead through Darragh Lenihan’s scrappy effort in the 1st half before Swansea broke away with two quick fire goals of their own courtesy of Baker-Richardson and McBurnie.

Rovers started the 2nd half with the bit between their teeth and levelled the game via Bradley Dack’s goal, and were unlucky not to win it with multiple efforts as the season came to a close.

The result ends our return to the Championship and leaves me with muct anticipation for the new season. I expect some familar faces to leave and I hope for some exciting new options to arrive.

I will talk more about this is separate videos during the week.

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

 

Blackburn Rovers return to Ewood Park but could not break the air tight Stoke defense and ultimately losing 0-1.

Etebo the only scorer on the day with a crisp strike that broke the Rovers defense.

It could have been much worse for Rovers as Stoke were given a penalty which was saved by David Raya between the sticks.

Raya also came to Rovers rescue in the 2nd half and delivered a wonder save to deny ex Burnley man Sam Volkes a goal.

Rovers created little and look lost at sea the moment. The season can not end quick enough for Rovers who will need to work extra hard in the summer to turn this team into something that can compete in this league.

Later on the channel, I will take a detailed look at the match, hear what the gaffa had to say, take a look at Rovers fans input on social media and more.

Sheffield Wednesday vs Blackburn Rovers (4-2) – Match Review

Blackburn Rovers slipped to another away defeat at the hands of a revamped Sheffield Wednesday.

The final score being a mouthwatering 4-2 win for the Owls.

Plenty of action within the match which could have seen many more goals, Sheff Wed hit the post in the first half before taking the lead though Steve Fletcher.

Rovers on the other hand relied on goals from Craig Conway and Elliott Bennett however it was not enough to get anything out of this entertaining defeat.

A bit of break in the Championship comes at a good time for all, especially Rovers as we hope to see some defensive players return from injury in two weeks time.

Another positive was the Rovers debut of youngster John Buckley, many more appearances in a Rovers shirt please Gaffa!

Blackburn Rovers terrible form continues as they lost against local rivals Preston North End after a scrappy 0-1.

Johnson the only scorer on the day after breaching the Rovers defense in the 9th minute.

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

 

Blackburn Rovers lose on the road after a 5 goal thriller against Rotherham United at the New York Stadium.

Rotherham United coming out 3-2 winners after taking an early lead via Semi Ajayi header from a Will Vaulks long throw.

The Millers held firm till half time, however Rovers started the 2nd half brighter and leveled the scores through Amari Bell’s 2nd goal of the season.

However as Rovers do, we could not keep the match level and Rotherham took the lead once again via Williams. As Rovers searched to get back into the match Semi Ajayi scored his 2nd goal of the day to put the match out of sight. Rovers did have some hope as Charlie Mulgrew scored from the penalty spot in the closing minutes, but it was too little too late.

Massive points for Rotherham, whereas Rovers need to tighten up as we could see us sucked into a relegation vacuum.

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

 

Blackburn Rovers stopped the recent run of defeats to force a draw against a Birmingham City blessed with a very decent attacking force.

Birmingham opened up the scoring through Che Adams midway through the first half. To be honest, Birmingham could have scored a few more goals, so Rovers very lucky to only be one goal down at half time.

Early in the 2nd half Charlie Mulgrew leveled the scoring direct from a corner kick. With the scores level, Rovers searched for a winner, however Birmingham also threatened. However it was Rovers who took the lead via Danny Graham to give Rovers belief that we could win this game.

However the red hot striker Che Adams had other thoughts, and snatched a share of the spoils with a difficult strike from a tricky angle.

In this video we hear from two Birmingham City supporters Sean Guiden and Jack Iles as well as Tony Mowbray.

Also we look at the match stats, heat maps and comments from around social media.

After 90 minutes, the points were shared and I feel Rovers should be happier.

Birmingham City: Camp, Morrison (c), Colin, Maghoma (Mrabti, 57), Adams, G. Gardner, Dean, Jota (Mahoney, 70), Jutkiewicz (Vassell, 77), Pedersen, Kieftenbeld.

Unused substitutes: Trueman, Davis, C. Gardner, Harding.

Goals: Adams, 17, 85.

Bookings:

Rovers: Raya, Nyambe, Rodwell, Mulgrew (c), Bell, Smallwood, Travis, Bennett, Dack, Reed (Armstrong, 67), Graham.

Unused substitutes: Leutwiler, Rothwell, Brereton, Nuttall, Evans, Conway.

Goals: Mulgrew, 52, Graham, 83.
