⏪ Rovers Rewind: Watch the taming of the Trotters tonight!

Jordan Rhodes was at the double in the excellent 4-1 victory over Bolton Wanderers back in August 2013!

7 June 2020

With the Championship season postponed until later this month, we will be showing another classic clash from the archives so you can get your football fix during these difficult times.

Next up, we have selected the emphatic 4-1 victory over Bolton Wanderers at Ewood Park from August 2013, as voted for by supporters on Twitter.

There were over 1,000 votes from you all, and just 0.3% of the vote between the top two choices!

We will now be showing the memorable match against the Trotters in full on our YouTube channel from 7pm this evening (Sunday 7th June).

Fans may remember David Dunn's fine footwork and finish to put Rovers ahead midway through the first half of the derby clash.

Star striker Jordan Rhodes made it 2-0 just moments later, only for Alex Baptiste, who would join Rovers on loan from Bolton a year later, to pull a goal back just before half time.

Corry Evans then marked his home debut for the club with a scorcher from long range to add to Rovers' tally with 22 minutes remaining, before that man Rhodes, who would end the campaign with 25 goals in all competitions, completed his brace late on.
