However, a second goal remained elusive and the home side hit back on the half-hour when Morten Gamst Pedersen side-footed home David Bentley’s cross.

The second half was a more even affair and a point apiece was about right in the end.
“It’s a difficult place to go and we had a good reaction after the Newcastle game not just in attitude, but in performance,” reflected Gus back at Spurs Lodge.
“We were in control, especially for the first 25 minutes and it was great to watch our football. I sat there on the bench really enjoying watching the team play!
“The second goal was the key though. If you are playing at that level, if you go on and score the second you can finish the game. Unfortunately we didn’t, Blackburn came back but overall we have to be happy.”
Gus Poyet reasoned that a second goal might have put the issue beyond doubt at Blackburn.Dimitar Berbatov opened the scoring after seven minutes as we dominated the opening exchanges at Ewood Park, playing some of our best football of the season, especially on the road.
