Blackburn Rovers fans are over the moon with their 2-1 home victory against Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds United yesterday afternoon, and Rovers’ official Twitter page didn’t hesitate to tease Leeds fans after the game.
Tony Mowbray’s side scored two goals from set pieces as they beat Leeds United 2-1, climbing to 7th place in the Championship and level on 21 points with Norwich City and Derby County.
An early goal from striker Danny Graham after just three minutes put Rovers on the front foot, before Leeds’ Polish midfielder Mateusz Klich fired in from close range just before the break. However, Darragh Lenihan’s towering header put Rovers ahead with 20 minutes left grabbed all three points for Mowbray’s side.
Rovers fans were understandably thrilled with the result, and thoroughly entertained by the Rovers media team’s antics after the game.
Corry Evans looks better every time he plays.
Very comfortable in possession, particularly going forward, creating a few decent openings. Covered every blade of grass, as usual, and never afraid to put in a tackle.
Another top display from him.#rovers
