Villanueva Brace As Rovers Reserves Beat City

Villanueva Brace As Rovers Reserves Beat City

Carlos Villanueva was the man for the reserves again as his double sunk Man City reserves. Rovers won 2-1 against City at the Regional Sports Arena last night.

A penalty and a lcassy finish were the difference as a young Rovers side triumphed. A dynamic line up that included Alex Marrow as well as first team fringe players Keith Treacy and Danny Simpson were always the stronger side as the second string made their claim for a regular starting spot.

Carlos Villanueva put Rovers ahead early on before a Phil Jones own goal levelled the scores. Villanueva scored the winner from the penalty spot in the 76th minute.

It surely can't be long before Carlos is seen out and about the for the first team.

Blackburn: Bunn, Jones, Simpson, Flynn, Gunning, Hodge, Doran, Marrow, J Santa Cruz, Villanueva, Treacy.

Unused subs: Marshall, Bussman, Haworth, Lowe, Morrissey.

He keeps doing the business again and again but will Sam give him a crack at the first team?

Hopefully, but I really dont think hes Sam's type of player. Where can he play is the question? Our game is now very much focussed on getting the ball up into the box to Chris Samba, whatever the stats may suggest on the Rovers website that is our gameplan and it is evident every game, though usually effective so Im not complaining. But sadly I dont see Carlos fitting into this system as much I'd like to see him play.

With performances from the front two against West Ham, surely there's room for Carlos behind a lone striker?

money4midefield is so right lets give him a go there! i believe wen he scored against grimsby we shuda gave him more games consistently so he would have improved whilst playing instead of the in and out scenario! look at all the top teams they all have pace in the upper field we need that, weve needed that for that past few seasons! we will stay up i have faith! bring on the opposition!!!

Personally I think Big Sam's mind is made up on Carlos, he isn't his type of player and certainly not a player that he will use with us in the position that we are currently in. WHEN we are safe he'll probably give him a runout?!?!
