    The foundations of the victory at Ewood Park was won in a crazy opening 18 minutes where Reading went 3-1 up thanks to goals from Yakou Méïté – clocked as the fastest in the club’s history – Michael Olise and Josh Laurent. Adam Armstrong had made it 1-1 and then got Blackburn back in it in the second half, but Lucas João killed the game in the final 10 minutes.

    The 19-year-old Brazilian turned in a Kiko Femenía cross with a first-time finish before Tom Cleverley’s header doubled the lead. Ben Brereton’s fine strike reduced the arrears before the half-hour but Rovers, who had more possession and shots than the hosts, saw their luck run out after the break when Darragh Lenihan put through his own goal and Adam Armstrong saw a penalty saved by the excellent Ben Foster.

  • Sat, 17 Oct 2020 17:22:31 +0000: Championship roundup: Chris Hughton enjoys winning start with Forest - Blackburn Rovers | The Guardian
    • Joe Lolley’s deflected strike secures 1-0 win at Blackburn
    • Wycombe score first Championship goal but lose to Millwall

    Chris Hughton marked his first game in charge of Nottingham Forest with a late 1-0 win at Blackburn. The former Newcastle and Brighton manager, who replaced Sabri Lamouchi after Forest’s four-game losing start to the season, will have been extremely encouraged by the performance of his new charges at Ewood Park.

    The visitors looked solid and took hold of proceedings as the game wore on, with Thomas Kaminski saving well from Lyle Taylor and Sammy Ameobi, who also struck a post. They were eventually rewarded in the 90th minute through Joe Lolley’s deflected strike, which ended a run of six straight league defeats.

    Ipswich stayed top as Gwion Edwards' third goal in two matches set them on their way to a 2-0 win over Accrington at Portman Road. Edwards drove in his fifth league goal of the season to give Town a 55th-minute lead and Freddie Sears sealed the points with a neat finish from a tight angle after good work from Alan Judge.

    Cambridge moved to the summit by thrashing struggling Scunthorpe 5-0. Paul Mullin buried two penalties inside 10 minutes before the break to take his tally to seven league goals for the season. The visitors did not take their foot off the gas after the interval as Tyler Cordner's own goal made it 3-0. Scunthorpe's misery was compounded when Myles Hippolyte was shown a second yellow card after 55 minutes and Joe Ironside netted a double to make it 5-0.

  • Sat, 03 Oct 2020 16:28:47 +0000: Championship roundup: Rooney strikes late as Norwich rue Pukki penalty slip - Blackburn Rovers | The Guardian
    • Forest slump to fourth straight defeat as Bristol City go top
    • Puscas strikes against Watford as Reading keep perfect record

    Wayne Rooney rolled back the years with a brilliant free-kick as Derby struck late to earn a 1-0 win at Norwich to record their first points of the season. The 33-year-old captain curled home from just outside the box in the 87th minute to secure his side a priceless victory. It was rough justice on Norwich, who dominated for long periods and wasted a gilt-edged chance to go ahead early in the second half when Teemu Pukki missed from the penalty spot after slipping on the sodden turf.

    Bristol City returned to the top of the table after maintaining their 100% record with a battling 2-1 win at struggling Nottingham Forest. City took a 2-0 lead inside 22 minutes as Chris Martin set up goals for Andreas Weimann and Nahki Wells. Forest halved the deficit as Luke Freeman rifled home the hosts’ first goal of the campaign from 30 yards on 35 but, despite pushing hard for an equaliser in an improved display, Forest slumped to their fourth straight defeat.

    The League One clash between Oxford United and Crewe Alexandra was postponed after one of the Railwaymen's players was informed they had  tested positive for Covid-19 on Saturday morning.

    Three teams started the day with maximum points but that became two after previous leaders Ipswich were pegged back in a 1-1 draw at MK Dons. That allowed Lincoln to jump to the summit after they came from 2-1 down with five minutes left to beat Blackpool 3-2. Hull also have the maximum 12 points after edging out Plymouth 1-0.

    Newport lead the table in League Two after coming from 1-0 down with 12 minutes left to grab a 2-1 home win over Mansfield. Their 10-point haul is one clear of Morecambe, who also scored late to edge out Port Vale, who had started the day in second spot. Cambridge dropped from first to fourth after going down 2-0 at Exeter.

  • Sat, 26 Sep 2020 16:17:25 +0000: Derby humbled again as old boy Bradley Johnson hits two for Blackburn - Blackburn Rovers | The Guardian

    Phillip Cocu questioned his team’s attitude after they were hammered 4-0 at home by Blackburn. The manager pulled no punches about a performance that condemned Derby to their worst start to a season since 1992.

    Derby never recovered after three goals in four minutes gave Blackburn control and only David Marshall prevented an even heavier defeat. Tyrhys Dolan scored from close range after Ben Brereton hit the post in the 11th minute and the former Derby midfielder Bradley Johnson smashed in a second from 25 yards a minute later.

    Ladies

    Several of the clubs' loan players were in action over the weekend

    While it was international break for Rovers Ladies last week, several loan players were in action for their respective clubs across the weekend's fixtures.

Newly relegated Blackburn Rovers have now resigned themselves to loosing many of their top players in the closed season due to their unsuccessful season just gone which will break the hearts of many of their supporters. One of the first players who will make an exit from Ewood Park is French midfielder Steven N`Zonzi who look set to return to the premier league as their are now a number of clubs battling for the players signature.

On a plus note the side from the north have many targets on their scope for the new season as Steve Kean looks to bolster his squad options with the first of these to be signed being the Portuguese striker Nuno Gomes. The influential striker has just signed a two year deal to take him to Ewood Park on a free transfer as he was released from his previous side Braga at the end of the season.

Another two players who have been signed by kean so far are Danny Murphy and Leon Best who have recently both signed lucrative deals to help the side retake their position in the top flight of English football. Both players arrived on free transfers which is always a bonus for clubs and bring with them a wealth of experience.

Want away winger Junior Hoilett is another player who is close to leaving the club this summer as he is on the verge of a move to German side Borussia Monchengladbach. The player is also said to have held talks with many of the premier leagues top clubs but it look for than likely that the player will look for pastures new in on of Europe’s top leagues. The twenty two year old has just been seen to fly out to Germany to seal this deal so barring a disaster you will see him in the colours of Monchengladbach next season.

Finally rover have also been involved in arranging the transfer of up and coming Ipswich goal keeper Scott Loach who has been on Keans radar for some time and are now looking to hijack an approach from Watford. The young keeper is thought to be the perfect player for Kean to rebuild from the back and it is believe that Loach is very keen on a move up north.

Championship roundup: Swansea and Birmingham coaches and players clash

  • Melee mars goalless draw at Liberty Stadium
  • Brentford inaugurate new ground by beating Huddersfield

Swansea and Birmingham shared a 0-0 Championship draw that was overshadowed by players and coaches clashing at the Liberty Stadium. The two teams could not be separated over the course of 90 minutes, during which Alan Tate, the home side’s first-team coach, grabbed the Blues midfielder Jon Toral by the throat.

There were few clearcut chances in either half as they had to settle for a point apiece. As the first period drew to a close the frustration of both sets of players and the coaching staff at the referee, Gavin Ward, rose. This culminated just before the break when Tate put his hands on Toral on the touchline and a huge melee by the tunnel broke out.

Ipswich, Lincoln and Hull maintained their perfect starts to the League One season with second consecutive victories. All three left it late, with Ipswich defeating Bristol Rovers 2-0, Lincoln beating MK Dons 2-1 and Hull edging a 1-0 win against Crewe.

Crewe are one of four teams still to pick up a point along with Rochdale, who play Portsmouth on Sunday, Oxford and Wigan.

Cambridge made it back-to-back wins in style as a 5-0 success at Morecambe left them top of League Two. Harrogate's dream start to life in the Football League was slowed down by Walsall, who earned a 2-2 draw at the Keepmoat Stadium despite the late dismissal of Danny Guthrie. Salford swaggered to a 4-0 win at Grimsby, helped by three penalties. Stevenage joined the massed ranks on four points as a 3-0 win over Oldham left the latter as one of four teams without a point. Southend suffered a second successive loss, going down 2-0 at Carlisle
