Samba sets tone for Rovers

Published Add your comment

Chris Samba's 24th minute opener set Blackburn on their way to their first Barclays Premier League win since November as they beat Fulham 2-0 at Ewood Park.

Samba was in the right place to deflect home an attempted clearance by former Rover Damien Duff after Benni McCarthy's corner caused havoc in the visitors' box.

Captain Ryan Nelsen headed a 54th minute second while Fulham had few moments to savour - the best coming from Clint Dempsey with a 36th minute overhead kick which struck the bar.
