Pedersen strikes twice

Published Add your comment

Blackburn's new owners had plenty to cheer about as a brace from Morten Gamst Pedersen gave them a 2-0 victory and ensured they made a winning start against Aston Villa.

Rovers, playing for the first time since being taken over by Indian company Venky's, took the lead in stoppage time at the end of the opening period thanks to Pedersen's delightful looping free-kick.

The Norwegian then struck again midway through the second half to wrap up a comfortable victory for Sam Allardyce's side.
