Midfielder scores stunning opener as Rovers beat Reds 2-1 for first PL2 D1 victory of season

Blackburn Rovers earned their first victory of the Premier League 2 Division 1 campaign with a 2-1 success over Liverpool

It took five minutes for the home side, who had lost five of their first eight matches since promotion, to open the scoring. 

Jacob Davenport (pictured) hit a superb strike from 25 yards to put Rovers 1-0 up at Leyland County Ground, before Jack Evans tapped in their second on 19 minutes. 

Liverpool pulled a goal back through Matty Virtue in the 63rd minute, his fifth in the competition, before Evans was sent off for a second yellow card late on. 

But 10-man Blackburn held on to move up to 11th in the league, three points and two places behind Liverpool.
