Blackburn Rovers put on a courageous display against Premier League side Bournemouth in the Carabao Cup, but ultimately fell at the final hurdle, as Callum Wilson scored a 94th minute goal for the Cherries.

Despite missing some key first team players – including Bradley Dack, Darragh Lenihan and Charlie Mulgrew – Rovers fought back from 2-0 down through goals from Adam Armstrong and Craig Conway. However, Derrick Williams slipped late on and handled the ball, leaving Tony Mowbray’s side a man down.

It looked like Rovers were set to crawl over the line, until striker Callum Wilson headed in from a corner, leading to mixed reactions from fans.

At the same time, Rovers fans will be feeling proud that a much changed side travelled over 500 miles to give high-flying Bournemouth a tough game. But, some will be left worried by the fact their side have conceded yet another late goal through a lack of concentration.
