📷 Harvey Elliott: Match Snapshot

⏱️ 43’ Elliott drags Blackburn back into the match as he drives into the box and smashes the ball into the roof of the net with his weaker right foot.

The teenager remained on the pitch for the entire 90 minutes despite Tony Mowbray turning to his bench in a bid to turn things around late on.

However, he was unable to inspire a comeback as out-of-form Rovers' play-off hopes took another hit.
