Football Results

Blackburn produced a strong performance after a disappointing one midweek in one of the comfortable football results of the weekend in the Championship. The hosts got off to the worst possible start with Rhian Brewster scoring his first league goal for the club after joining them before last season. Blackburn dominated the game after conceding and got their equalizer in the 10th minute through Reda Khadra. In-form striker, Ben Brereton Diaz put them in the front on the hour mark when he tapped in from close range. They put the game to bed when Ian Poveda scored after some brilliant footwork in the 70th minute.

Managers Reaction

Blackburn’s Tony Mowbray: “We talked about getting off to a good start and making sure we were still in the game after 20 minutes. Obviously (that) went down well because we found ourselves one down after 80 seconds. I thought they reacted extremely well. It’s no surprise to me, that’s what they do and I’ve been saying that.”

Sheffield United’s Slavisa Jokanovic: “The performance was poor. We started the game very well, scored the goal. Maybe after the goal we had a problem with intensity, we made some unforced mistakes and brought them into our box.” he added. “The second half, it’s simple. We conceded the goal after the offensive transition, and after unforced mistakes, even after the set pieces when they started running, we didn’t have enough speed, power, weren’t solid and they found a lot of situations where they could score goals.”
