"Highlights" of Blackburn Rovers 4-1 Bolton Wanderers

Matthew Lewis

If you were not one of the roughly 3,000 Bolton Wanderers fans that traveled to Ewood Park but are also not easily upset, these are the "highlights" (read with sarcasm) of Bolton's embarrassing day out.

Mistakes in the midfield gifted Blackburn possession nearly from the off and Rovers, with Jordan Rhodes up front, David Dunn in the midfield, and Joshua King on the wing, cut Bolton apart. It was like a red-hot knife slicing through butter.

Rovers went ahead early on after David Dunn skipped through four challenges from Bolton men in the area, finishing easily enough past Adam Bogdan before Jordan Rhodes doubled the advantage two minutes later. Wanderers pulled one back on the stroke of halftime through a great bit of Bolton possession and well-taken shot from Alex Baptiste. A full volley from Cory Evan that was deflected past Adam Bogdan restored the two goal lead for Blackburn and put the match out of reach before Jordan Rhodes stuck the dagger in at the death.
