Derby 1-2 Blackburn

Dec 31, 2007

David Bentley netted a first-half winner for Blackburn to condemn bottom club Derby County to another defeat.

Derby went ahead when Giles Barnes’ lay-off found Matt Oakley, who shot through keeper Brad Friedel’s legs.

Friedel then saved Steve Howard’s penalty after Ryan Nelsen was adjudged to have fouled Kenny Miller.

Roque Santa Cruz tapped in an equaliser after keeper Lewis Price parried Benni McCarthy’s shot. Bentley then fired in from 25 yards and later hit the post.
