Blackburn 5-2 Huddersfield: FLW reports as Armstrong hat-trick secures emphatic Rovers win against dismal Terriers
It has been quite some time since Blackburn Rovers produced a performance such as this. Back at the start of this season, ruthless free-scoring wins such as this had threatened to become a regular part of Rovers’ campaign, and while that ultimately hasn’t happened, this will at least be particularly welcome for Tony Mowbray and […]Back at the start of this season, ruthless free-scoring wins such as this had threatened to become a regular part of Rovers’ campaign, and while that ultimately hasn’t happened, this will at least be particularly welcome for Tony Mowbray and co. as they look to go into a big summer for the club on a high.
Blackburn Rovers have had a disappointing season, with Tony Mowbray’s men unable to push for the play-offs as some fans would’ve hoped.
However, the one bright spot for the Lancashire outfit has been the form of Adam Armstrong. The 24-year-old has been one of the outstanding performers in the Championship, scoring 25 goals in 39 games.
Unsurprisingly, such form has caught the eye,that Everton and West Ham are keeping tabs on the attacker.
Whilst Blackburn wouldn’t want to lose Armstrong, the reality is that a big bid will be hard to resist,the club will be ready to cash in when the window opens.
2 transfer scenarios that Blackburn Rovers will not want to see play out this summer
It looks set to be a long summer for Blackburn Rovers. With Tony Mowbray’s side stumbling towards the end of the season on the pitch, and a long lost of players out of contract off it, there are going to be a number of issues to address at Ewood Park when the campaign comes to […]With Tony Mowbray’s side stumbling towards the end of the season on the pitch, and a long lost of players out of contract off it, there are going to be a number of issues to address at Ewood Park when the campaign comes to a close.
Up to player as well. But club needs the money.

So, an exit could be on the cards, and here we look at THREE replacements the club should be considering…
Firstly, Diedhiou is a completely different type of striker, but he could still be a very useful player at this level.
The Senegal international has hit double figures in three consecutive seasons, and he always offers more than just goals with his physicality and link-up play.
He is available on a free transfer in the summer, so he wouldn’t command a fee, but he’s sure to want big wages, something which Armstrong’s sale could help with.
This will seem as an ambitious one because Roberts has been playing for Leeds recently, but he has failed to score in 23 games.
Forget Windass: Sheffield Wednesday monster who won 83% duels was Moore's unsung hero - opinion
Sheffield Wednesday midfielder Joey Pelupessy was their unsung hero as the Owls defeated Blackburn Rovers in the Championship on Tuesday night.In the absence of manager Darren Moore from the dugout, the Owls edged this close affair thanks to a 37th-minute strike from Josh Windass, taking his tally for the season to nine goals.
With that in mind, Leeds may be looking for at least one new attacking player this summer, which would force Roberts down the pecking order.
If the Wales international wants to play week in, week out, a move will be required and Blackburn would be able to stump up a decent fee for the player.
Finally, Rovers may want to take a punt on a talented youngster from the lower leagues and Plymouth’s Jephcott is someone who stands out.
He has enjoyed a fine season in League One, scoring 16 goals, and his overall ability will have attracted attention.
A move to Ewood Park, where he could play regularly may appeal, and he will hope to have a similar impact to Armstrong.
OTD: Liverpool win seven-goal thriller vs Blackburn Rovers .
On this day (May 8) in 2002, Liverpool edged out Blackburn Rovers 4-3 at Anfield to cement second place in the Premier League behind Arsenal. The Reds welcomed a familiar face to the dugout as iconic ex-captain Graeme Souness brought his Rovers side to the Scotsman’s former haunt. Liverpool were managed by the late, great Gerard Houllier on a night whereby even the best defenders were well and truly put to the sword. Midfielder Danny Murphy opened the scoring for the Reds before goals from flamboyant French striker Nicolas Anelka and battle harder Finnish centre-back Sami Hyypia added to the tally.
