Football Scores

Blackburn Rovers got their promotion hopes back on track as they produced one of the comfortable football scores of the midweek action in the Championship. Derby deserved to take the lead in the 28th minute before Scott Wharton equalized in the 53rd minute. Tyrhys Dolan gave the home side the lead in the 59th minute before Sam Gallagher sealed the three points in the seventh minute of stoppage time.

Managers Reaction

Blackburn’s Tony Mowbray: “I should have maybe changed four, five, six, seven players to be honest. We looked a really tired, emotionally-drained football team in the first half. There was a lot of fear and weren’t playing how we play on the front foot. I had a conversation at half-time of our expectations, we got on the front foot and played how we played in the second half, caused them more problems, took their composure away from them and we got the job done in the end. It’s an important three points. We’ll see if we can go to Reading and get another three on Saturday.”

Derby’s Wayne Rooney: “It’s a difficult loss for us to take because we did so many good things in the first half. We made it difficult for Blackburn to press us, we got the goal, go 1-0 up and I think we can go in at half-time maybe two or three up. I felt we could have been (more than 1-0 up at half-time). Tom Lawrence had a good chance, Buchanan had a good chance and I felt, from the first half, we were in complete control. You could feel the frustration from the fans and the coaches and we had to take a bit more advantage of that. We did not manage the game well enough and ultimately, that’s cost us.”
