Blackburn Rovers produced a stunning second half comeback to gain our most impressive win on the season, when we won 3-1 at Nottingham Forest on Saturday.

Forest had “wobbled” recently but still went into half time with a lead after Matty Fryatt’s goal for them, with Gary Bowyer feeling we were unfortunate to go into the break behind but he was left “delighted” by the end.

After the match Bowyer said: “We are delighted with how it has gone today.

“I thought there wasn’t much in it in the first half. We were a little bit disappointed to go in 1-0 down at half-time, you look at the manner of their goal, it has hit the post and landed at Fryatt’s feet.


The deficit was still faced as we moved to the midway point of the second half but once the unlikely source of Alex Baptiste put us level there was no looking back!! Rudy Gestede headed us ahead before Jordan Rhodes got back on the scoresheet with his first in a while to ensure we left the City Ground with the points.

We’ve got to remember that even though Forest had been on a run of something like seven matches without a win they’d not lost at home all season but we blew them away in the second half with the Rovers Managers hailing a magnificent team effort.

Adding: “The response from them was magnificent and credit to them. Nottingham Forest hadn’t been beaten here all season.

“Again it was a massive team effort, it would be wrong of me to single anybody out individually today.

“It was just massive team effort from everybody at the end of a very tough week.


What a win!!

Not only will few win at the City Ground his season they’ll not win in such the manor that we did with this second half display of attacking football, which we want to see a lot more of.

The most important thing for Rovers now is to get some real consistency and not allow this win (and the one before it) to be to no avail and make sure we capitalise against Reading when they come to Ewood Park on Saturday.
