What was March's Top Rovers Goal?

What was March'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 goals for March, a month in which we scored six.

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.

Benni McCarthy
Sunday 3rd verses Bolton Wanderers, Reebok Stadium, Premiership (2-1 win)
After Gary Speed had brought down David Bentley for a penalty the responsibility feel to Benni McCarthy. The South African picked his spot and beat Jussi Jaaskelainen low to his corner. The Finn went the right way but the power beat him. To see goal click here

Benni McCarthy
Sunday 3rd verses Bolton Wanderers, Reebok Stadium, Premiership (2-1 win)
This time as Benni McCarthy himself got in Abdoulaye Faye's rash challenge gave Rovers a second penalty. McGoalmachine picked himself up to beat Jussi Jaaskelainen again (just!) in the same corner despite the Finn getting a good hand to this penalty. To see goal click here

Aaron Mokoena
Sunday 11th verses Manchester City, Ewood Park, FA Cup (2-0 win)
A good Rovers passing move eventually saw the ball delivered into the box finding its way to Aaron Mokoena who brought the ball down and shot right footed, which was blocked (this was going wildly wide!) the rebound feel to him again and he expertly beat Nicky Weaver with his left.

Matt Derbyshire
Sunday 11th verses Manchester City, Ewood Park, FA Cup (2-0 win)
With time running up Manchester City inevitably went in search of an equaliser, leaving gaps at the back. A quickly taken free kick found Jason Roberts in space who held the ball up for Sergio Peter who delivered an inch perfect ball across the goal for Matt Derbyshire to fire home and secure a place in the Semi Final of the FA Cup.

Christopher Samba
Saturday 17th verses West Ham United, Ewood Park, Premiership (2-1 defeat)
With the half time interval just past it appeared the West Ham United defence hadn't come out as Christopher Samba was able to get a free header, powerful as it was, to beat Robert Green. THIS GOAL COULDN'T BE FOUND - SORRY!

Matt Derbyshire
Saturday 31st verses Manchester United, Old Trafford, Premiership (4-1 defeat)
A typical poachers goal! Morten Gamst Pedersen's wonderful cross was cut out by Michael Carrick, or at least attempted to be cut out, but he only diverted towards goal. Edwin Van Der Sar reacted well to save but his save came to none other than our own fox in the box (not Jeffers!) Matt Derbyshire to smash home. To see goal click here

None of these were classics were they, Bennu's were both penalties and Samba's verses the Hammered was more due to poor defending that good goalscoring. Derbs' verses Man United was a poachers goal. For me it's between Mokoena and Derbs, both against Man City. the Axe took a wild swing at his first effort but followed up superbly, Derbs' was a well worked move. Tough call.
