Blackburn Rovers 0-1 Bristol City: Eros Pisano scores late winner for visitors

Eros Pisano’s winner helped Bristol City complete a league double over Blackburn this season

Bristol City extended their run of successive wins in all competitions to eight with a late victory at Blackburn Rovers.

Substitute Eros Pisano bundled in Callum O’Dowda’s corner from close range to keep Lee Johnson’s side in the Championship’s top six.

Famara Diedhiou nodded Bristol City’s best chance of a goalless first half over the bar from close range and another header from the Senegalese striker after the break was well saved by Blackburn goalkeeper David Raya.

The Spaniard also denied O’Dowda and Andreas Weimann at Ewood Park.

Adam Armstrong was the chief threat throughout for Blackburn, who missed out on a fourth consecutive home league win.

Blackburn’s leading scorers Bradley Dack and Danny Graham were passed fit to play after knocks in their previous game at Brentford, but it was fellow forward Armstrong who had looked most likely to break the deadlock for the hosts.

The Championship’s player of the month for January fired just wide with an early attempt and later tested Frank Fielding with a fierce shot, while ex-City defender Derrick Williams headed wide from a Charlie Mulgrew free-kick.

It was still goalless when Fielding smartly saved from Dack at his near post, and City capitalised with a late winner from their Italian full-back Pisano.
