Leaders Rovers still unbeaten

Published Add your comment

Blackburn maintained their unbeaten record and their lead of the npower Championship, but they were fortunate to beat Barnsley at Ewood Park.

Jacob Mellis' angled drive gave the Tykes a deserved lead after 32 minutes but Jordan Rhodes equalised just before half-time against the run of play. And substitutes Fabio Nunes and Nuno Gomes then combined for the late winner, the veteran former Portugal striker with the finish to secure a 2-1 victory.

Second-placed Blackpool hammered Middlesbrough 4-1 as Nathan Delfouneso scored his first two goals for the club on his home debut. Andre Amougou pulled one goal back after the on-loan Aston Villa striker had put the Seasiders 2-0 up by the interval, only for Thomas Ince to make it 3-1 soon after, before Elliott Grandin pulled rank to convert a late penalty.
