Everything you may have missed from Rovers defeat

9 April 2018

All the reaction to Saturday's 1-0 defeat to Blackburn Rovers...

Blackburn were given a scare by Southend at Ewood Park on Saturday, but they had enough to win by a slender margin.

Blues came away from Lancashire disappointed that they had nothing to show for their efforts as they pushed the league leaders right to the end, but it was Danny Graham's backpost header that was the difference.

Despite the defeat, Chris Powell's side still moved up a place in the table due to Bradford's 5-0 defeat.

Here are two-minute highlights from the game, which shows the late penalty appeal on Simon Cox and the goalmouth scramble which almost lead to an equaliser.
