Bamford did fine. One assist, one goal, led the line well.

Harrison played well up to his final decision. Shot when he could have played Bamford in a couple of times.

Leeds have now conceded 44% of our Championship goals this season from corner set-pieces - way too high and the highest percentage in the division...... gotta sort it

Blackburn commentary “You can see why they’re not a liked club. We should have had a point but the refs have bottled it”

Honestly? We are not incisive enough up front. We won a lucky penalty, but our decision making and shooting - Dallas, Harrison, Bamford, WTF do they do all week? Apart from the Harrison goal, we had one testing shot from Roberts.

It's strange how the beer suddenly tastes that much better, just because some footballers have netted one more than the opponents

I agree, the Rovers commentary was definitely something of an eye-opener. They don’t believe we are a promotion team! West Brom are much better! Who was the team West Brom lost to? Oh, yes, Leeds Utd.
Would not be surprised if Blackburn went down, really poor team

Cheers Highland. Cheers lads. Time for a beer and some grub.

Blackburn will not go down. They worked hard and restricted us to only a few clear cut chances and looked dangerous at corners but they never looked like scoring from open play and Kiko had nothing much to do. We weren't as fluid as last week but still grinded out an ugly but just about deserved win.

Not sure we've heard the last of it, will plenty of fans on social media mocking those clowns. What a bunch of plebs though, ''can see why they're hated"

Mowbray just as bad

"They didn't have hundreds of shots"

We still had 15 opposed to your 4!
