What was February's Top Rovers Goal?

What was February's Top Rovers Goal?

Each month, you the Vital Blackburn members are given the chance to vote for what you thought was the Goal of the Month. Where possible you are also given the chance of actually seeing the goal!

Before casting your vote in the poll here is a recap of the top six goals for February, a month in which we scored eight goals in total, with few crucial goals if maybe not necessarily beauties.

If the visual description isn't enough to refresh the memory check out the video clip to again relive the goal in all its glory from several different angles thanks to our friends at you tube.

Morten Gamst Pedersen
Saturday 3rd verses Sheffield United, Ewood Park, Premiership (2-1 win)
A trademark Morten Gamst Pedersen free kick deep into injury time left Sheffield United keeper Paddy Kenny rooted to the spot as he could only look on in horror as it flew past him into the top corner from fully 25-yards plus. Gamst Pedersen lifted the ball up and over the wall to perfection! To see goal click here

David Bentley
Wednesday 14th verses Bayer Leverkusen, Bay Arena, UEFA Cup (3-2 defeat)
A tremendous 25-30-yard free kick from David Bentley flew into the Bayer Leverkusen net to bring Rovers back to 1-1 at the time. The free kick did go in via the aid of a deflection but would the goalkeeper have saved it anyway… Unfortunately I couldn't find a video clip of this goal.

Shabani Nonda
Wednesday 14th verses Bayer Leverkusen, Bay Arena, UEFA Cup (3-2 defeat)
With time running out and Rovers 3-1 down we desperately needed a goal and up stepped Shabani Nonda. On the turn he volley home high into the roof of the net go give us a great chance of progression. Again a deflection helped the ball home but once again would the keeper have saved it anyway…To see goal click here

Shabani Nonda
Sunday 24th verses Portsmouth, Ewood Park, Premiership (3-0 win)
A long ball was headed clear by Sol Campbell, or at least attempted to be headed clear by Campbell. David James came out to try and claim the ball but was beaten to it by Shabani Nonda who hooked the ball beyond James from a tight angle on the volley. To see goal click here (0-40 seconds)

Stephen Warnock
Sunday 24th verses Portsmouth, Ewood Park, Premiership (3-0 win)
Stephen Warnock broke up a Portsmouth attack with the ball finding its way to Matt Derbyshire who played in Shabani Nonda who unselfishly when on a hat trick squared to Warnock who had run the length of the pitch to blast home from six-yards. A fine team goal from one end to the other. To see goal click here (2 minutes 15 seconds - 2 minutes 41 seconds)

Benni McCarthy
Wednesday 28th verses Arsenal, Ewood Park, FA Cup (1-0 win)
The ball forward found Benni McCarthy out on the wing. He carried the ball forward into the area while the Arsenal defence (Phillipe Senderos) backed off and without looking at the goal once rifled home an unstoppable shot into the top corner of the net to seal a dramatic late win.

For me the winner (in my eyes) isn't necessarily the greatest strike but its importance is what wins it for me… but nevertheless it is a fine strike! This goal Benni McGoalmachine verses Arsenal in the FA Cup replay. MGP's injury time winner against Sheffield United was both crucial and a great strike so pushed Benni close but just misses out. Nonda's late goal in the UEFA Cup was also crucial but proved irrelevant in the end unfortunately otherwise this might have won it for me. The poll will be added later so keep your eyes peeled.

Benni is running away with it, and rightly so important goal and a quality one too
