Armando Broja came off the bench and scored the winner with his first Premier League 2 goal as Chelsea beat Blackburn Rovers 2-1 to reclaim top spot in Division 1.
Jonathan Russell gave the Blues a half-time lead and, although Daniel Butterworth levelled in the 74th minute, Broja struck decisively just two minutes later.
Chelsea move above Derby County on goal difference with a match in hand, after the Rams were held to a 2-2 draw by Wolverhampton Wanderers on Friday. Blackburn drop to eighth.

Liverpool move level with Everton on 13 points, with the sides lying seventh and sixth respectively, but trail the Toffees on goal difference and have played an extra match.
