Harvey Elliott speaks out following Blackburn Rovers’ hard-fought draw with Cardiff City

Blackburn Rovers earned a late point on Saturday, as they drew 2-2 with play-off chasing Cardiff City. 

It was Cardiff that took the lead on the day through midfielder Will Vaulks, before Adam Armstrong equalised just two minutes before half-time for the visitors.

The Bluebirds went back in front after 70 minutes, with Joe Ralls getting on the scoresheet. But Armstrong had the final laugh on the day, as he equalised for Tony Mowbray’s side in stoppage-time, in what was his 51st goal for the Lancashire-based club.

That draw between the two teams means that Blackburn are now sat 17th in the Championship table, and 11 points clear of the relegation zone.

Rovers had previously been in contention to challenge for a top-six finish earlier in the 2020/21 season, but a run of seven matches without a win has seen them fall away from the play-off chasing pack in the second-tier.

One player that has been impressive in his loan spell with the club so far is Liverpool loanee Harvey Elliott, with the winger scoring five goals and being on hand to provide 11 assists for his Blackburn team-mates.

Elliott played 78 minutes of the match against Cardiff City, and took to Instagram after the draw as he praised his team for the spirit and fight they had shown to snatch a late point.

Elliott and his Blackburn team-mates are set to return to action next weekend, when they take on relegation-threatened Derby County at Ewood Park.

Are these facts about Blackburn Rovers' badge true or false?

Blackburn first used an incarnation of their current badge during the 1989/90 season?

The Verdict: 

He’ll be looking to finish this year’s campaign strongly.

I’ve been impressed with what I’ve seen so far from Elliott in his loan spell at Ewood Park, and it’ll be interesting to see if he’s in and around the Liverpool first-team next season.

Blackburn’s inconsistent run of form since the turn of the New Year means that the play-offs are almost certainly out of their reach, which will be frustrating for the club’s supporters.

Rovers battled hard for their point against Cardiff City on Saturday, and will be looking to end their poor run of form at the earliest of opportunities.
