Blackburn Rovers were involved in yet another enthralling contest in the Championship last night, but were on the wrong end of a result.
Tony Mowbray’s side beat Cardiff City 5-1 at the weekend, and therefore travelled to Huddersfield Town full of confidence last night.
But in another high scoring game, it was the Terriers who returned to winning ways on home soil, winning 3-2 on the night.
Alex Vallejo put Town ahead with a driven effort from distance, but Ben Brereton Diaz, who netted a hat-trick at the weekend, was on fine form once again.
Joe Rothwell danced his way into the area before squaring for the Chilean who converted from close-range, and after Danny Ward put Town back in front, Brereton Diaz scored a second goal from the penalty spot immediately after.
Huddersfield were to find a late winner through Ward, though, with Blackburn falling to their first defeat in six games.
For Brereton Diaz, it is now nine goals in 10 Championship outings this season, in a campaign which has been so rewarding for the 22-year-old.
Here’s what fans had to say after scoring five goals in his last two games…
Don’t you just Love Ben Brereton Diaz

Ben Brereton Díaz now has the same number of Rovers league goals as Ben Brereton.

Not backing him to score 20+ goals at 1000/1 will haunt me for the rest of my life. https://t.co/prw49URUSn

Ben Brereton has put Díaz on the end of his name and become the best player in the world

So a frustrating result obviously, far too defensively frail, should be holding on for a point away from home, but great strength to come back twice. Also incredible Brereton Diaz at 9 goals already!
