Sunderland 1-2 Blackburn

Sep 30, 2007

Blackburn scored twice in two minutes to maintain their unbeaten start to the league season away from Ewood Park.

A dull first half only sparked into life in the last five minutes when Sunderland striker Michael Chopra had a penalty appeal turned down.

But within 10 minutes of the restart, David Bentley had smashed Rovers in front and Roque Santa Cruz slammed a second into an empty net.

Grant Leadbitter’s low 25-yard sidefoot shot was too late to spark a revival.
