Disappointing start for Rovers

Rovers Ewood Park 2

8:06am 13th August 2017

It was a disappointing start to the season for Blackburn Rovers - who lost 3-1 to Doncaster.

Recently promoted Doncaster pumelled Rovers, who were relegated at the end of last season.

A consolation goal from Dominic Samuel in the 87th minute of the game didn't help Blackburn.

It's after a series of errors throughout the entire match.

It was Samuel's first goal for Rovers - but didn't help them claw anything back at Ewood.

It means Blackburn Rovers languish with zero points.
