To mark the 25th anniversary of Rovers’ Premiership title triumph, we will be showing a full match replay of that historic day at Anfield from May 14th 1995 this evening!

The game against Liverpool will be shown on our YouTube channel from 7pm tonight … 25 years to the day since Kenny Dalglish’s side were crowned champions of England.

Rovers went into the final day fixture two points clear of Manchester United, who faced a trip to West Ham United, knowing that a victory would guarantee them the title.

The visitors got off to the perfect start, opening the scoring on 20 minutes when Alan Shearer notched his 34th league goal of an incredible individual and collective campaign.

Liverpool levelled things up midway through the second half, through John Barnes, and Rovers’ fans had their hearts in their mouths when Jamie Redknapp curled home a last-minute free-kick.

However, news soon filtered through that Manchester United had been held to a 1-1 draw at Upton Park and Rovers lifted the league title for the first time in 81 years!
