Rovers snatch point

Published Add your comment

Junior Hoilett's injury-time header earned a vital point for Blackburn in a breathless 2-2 draw with fellow strugglers Blackpool.

The visitors were in total control at half-time after captain Charlie Adam, back from a two-game ban, had netted a contentious 25th-minute penalty and curled in a sublime free-kick four minutes later.

But Christopher Samba pulled a goal back for Blackburn four minutes into the second half and their incessant pressure finally paid off when Richard Kingson failed to get hands to a free-kick from opposite number Paul Robinson and Hoilett headed in.
