Blackburn extended their unbeaten Championship run to three games on Saturday, following a hard-earned point against Luton Town.
Prior to the international break, Tony Mowbray’s had collected four points from a possible six available, and made that five points from three matches after Sam Gallagher’s 72nd-minute equaliser.
And there was more good news for Rovers at Kenilworth Road after on-loan Leeds United defender Barry Douglas returned to the side after almost one month out after his positive COVID-19 test forced him to self-isolate and miss the matches against Swansea, Middlesbrough and QPR.
It’s been a frustrating start to life at Ewood Park for the Scottish left-back, but Douglas will now be hoping to put a run of games together after playing 90 minutes against the Hatters despite his lack of match fitness, although he did feature in a behind closed doors game against Sheffield United.

Having missed more than a month of action, Douglas was delighted about returning to action, as you can tell by his social media post.

This is great news for Blackburn, who’re building momentum just in time for a hectic December period.
On his day, Douglas remains one the most dangerous left-backs in the Championship, and with Bradley Dack and Stewart Downing almost fit and available, Mowbray is going to have an exciting group of players at his disposal.
