Dar­ius Hen­der­son bags a last minute win­ner for For­est at Black­burn

FOR­EST LOOK­ING GOOD FOR RE­TURN TO THE TOP

The Football League Paper - - NEWS -

AF­TER dra­mat­i­cally miss­ing out on the play-offs last sea­son, Billy Davies’ side are dead set on a re­turn to the top flight this time around.

And af­ter in­vest­ing heav­ily at the back, the For­est boss – who has made a name for him­self by pro­duc­ing solid de­fences – has cer­tainly laid the foun­da­tions.

Black­burn will rightly feel hard done by af­ter Dar­ius Hen­der­son’s stop- page-time win­ner, but For­est proved they have the fight­ing qual­i­ties needed to chal­lenge.

For the hosts, the be­lea­guered fans are slowly re­turn­ing to Ewood Park and there was plenty to be en­cour­aged by.

Alan Judge, mak­ing his full home de­but some five years, three loan spells and two trans­fers af­ter his first Black­burn game, cer­tainly im­pressed.

Jor­dan Rhodes is yet to fire in the open­ing two league games but when he does, Rovers should have plenty to cheer.
