Blackburn Rovers clinch first away win of the season

29 October 2015

Blackburn Rovers secured their first away win of the season, beating Leeds United 2-0 thanks to goals from Craig Conway and Jordan Rhodes.

Conway opened the scoring after only 18 seconds, with Blackburn's first attack of the game, before Rhodes doubled their lead with an exquisite finish five minutes later.

Leeds had opportunities to get on the scoresheet, with Tom Adeyemi glancing a header goalwards, only to be denied by the woodwork shortly before half-time.

The loss means Leeds are without a win in six matches, finding themselves down in 18th place in the Sky Bet Championship table. Meanwhile Blackburn picked up their first victory since beating Ipswich 2-0 at the start of the month, moving them up to 14th in the table.
