Rovers in hunt for Intertoto spot

Published Add your comment

Roque Santa Cruz picked up Blackburn´s player of the year trophy before kick-off and celebrated with a fine double to sink Derby and take his Premier League tally for the season to 19.

Kenny Miller had given the relegated Rams a shock 19th-minute lead which was cancelled out deep into first half injury-time when Roy Carroll could only parry a Morten Gamst Pedersen shot and Santa Cruz swept home the rebound.

Rovers dominated the second half, going into the lead when Jason Roberts fired home in the 47th minute and wrapping up victory when the Paraguayan stooped to head home Bentley´s cross 12 minutes from time.
