With the Championship season postponed until further notice, 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 penultimate fixture from the historic 1994-95 title-winning campaign, as Rovers secured a priceless three points in their pursuit of the Premiership crown courtesy of a 1-0 victory over Newcastle United at Ewood Park.

We are showing the game in full on our YouTube channel from 7pm tonight … 25 years to the day since the memorable match took place!

Back on May 8th 1995, Alan Shearer may have scored his 33rd league goal of the season – rising highest at the back post to head home Graeme Le Saux’s cross – but it was Tim Flowers who made the headlines.

The Rovers keeper produced a sensational performance to keep Newcastle at bay, before famously declaring that the team had plenty of ‘bottle’!

With the current quarantine due to the Coronavirus crisis set to continue, we will be showing a series of standout victories from years gone by to help keep fans and families entertained during lockdown.

We hope you enjoy!
