Rigters Scores First Rovers Goal
Blackburn Rovers striker Maceo Rigters scored his first goal for Rovers on Tuesday Evening during a reserve match with Middlesbrough, a match that ended 1-1.
The Dutch star, who excelled at the European Under-21 Championships last summer as he finished the tournament as the top goalscorer, helping the Dutch to lift the trophy scored after 10 minutes then also struck the bar shortly after. This should help him in his bid to fill a void left by Roque Santa Cruz, who looks to be in for a bit of an injury lay-off.
Further good news was the return to action of Bruno Berner. The Swiss International suffered a metatarsal injury during Pre-Season and was expected to be out until at least Christmas, but having made a quicker than anticipated return he too will now be looking to push forward his first-team claims. Tony Kane and Andy Taylor also looked very impressive in the full-back areas.
