Ben Brereton’s 76th-minute equaliser against Millwall earned his side a 1-1 draw in Blackburn Rovers’ first away game of the season. 

The point has left the Lancashire club in sixth place, following their opening day 3-2 victory over Russell Martin’s Swansea City.

After scoring a penalty during that 3-2 triumph against The Swans, Brereton Diaz doubled his tally for the season at The Den.

12 minutes after Jed Wallace tapped home from close range, the Stoke-born forward glanced a header into the bottom corner from Joe Rothwell’s out-swinging free-kick.

The young striker, who has recently switched his name from Ben Brereton to Ben Brereton Diaz, represented Chile during Copa America – a call-up that surprised the footballing world.
