Dzeko on target in Rovers defeat

Published Add your comment

Edin Dzeko ended his long wait for his first goal in the Barclays Premier League and in the process helped Manchester City close in on a top-four finish and a place in the Champions League as they recorded a 1-0 victory over Blackburn.

The Bosnian, a £27million signing from Wolfsburg in January, scored the winner in the 75th minute, three minutes after stepping off the bench.

He was embraced by his team-mates after breaking his duck in the top flight in this his 10th appearance. But for Blackburn the prospect of relegation is still a huge threat.
