Rovers assist in SOS campaign

Rovers assist in SOS campaign

With the club needing to raide over 300000 pounds to avoid the tax man, Blackburn did their share to assistn Accrington Stanley, making the short trip over for a friendly match. With an eye on the East Lancashire Derby, Sam Allardyce gave his stars short 30 minute stints, as well as giving several fringe and youth players a shot.

The Starting Line up was

Brown
Jackson Ramm (who?)
Martin Olsson
Jason Lowe (another who? no disrespect meant!)
Phil Jones
Gael Givet
Junior Hoillet
Nikola Kalinic
Jason Roberts
Benni mcCarthy
Morten Gamst Pedersen

Rovers pinched an early goal, with a 35 yard Gamst Pedersen free kick finding the net (do this on Sunday please). Changes were made after 30 minutes, with Di Santo coming on and scoring.

Stanley pulled one back in the second half after more Rovers changes at the 60th minute, however Marcus Marshall netted from the spot after being brought down in the box.

Final score, 3-1 Rovers....

As far as I know it was more of a 4-3-1-2 formation. Benni in the hole with Morten and Junior acting as wingers and Jackson Ramm playing the holding role...
