Football Scores: Stoke City 0-1 Blackburn Rovers

Blackburn leapfrogged Stoke in the league as they produced one of the narrow football scores of the weekend in the Championship. Reda Khedira scored the only goal of the game for the visitors and then produced a solid defensive performance not allowing the home side back into the game. Khedira capped a superb run with a smart finish into the lower bottom corner to give Blackburn a well-deserved lead.

Managers Reaction 

Stoke’s Michael O’Neill: “I think we played quite well in the first half in difficult conditions. We tried to build the game and it was difficult for the players. Ultimately, the game was decided by one moment and it was always going to be that kind of game I felt. And unfortunately, Blackburn had that moment. If you look at the goal really, Mario puts in a strike that’s on target and it takes two deflections and the referee, in his wisdom, decides to award a goal-kick.”

Blackburn’s Tony Mowbray: “At half-time, I was unhappy with where we put the ball. We were playing with the wind in the second half and what we said was to shoot with the wind. If you get a yard, whack it and shoot low. Reda is a great kid and I feel as though he’s still learning about the mentality to play for this team and yet he still has amazing attributes that we have to give him the opportunity to play. With that pace, the rocket of a right-foot – he did a job for us today and we’re delighted he did.”
