Bakayoko denies Rovers

Published Add your comment

Former Everton flop Ibrahima Bakayoko helped bring Blackburn´s 15-match unbeaten run crashing to an end and leave them on the brink of UEFA Cup elimination at the first hurdle as Larissa ran out 2-0 winners.

Bakayoko and Brazilian Cleyton scored two goals in the space of 90 disastrous first-half seconds as the Greek Cup winners pulled off a shock first-round, first-leg result.

The defeat leaves manager Mark Hughes´ side facing an uphill task in the second leg at Ewood Park in a fortnight if they are to reach the group stages.
