Blackburn suffered a sickening blow in the 93rd minute of their home derby against Preston North End as Aiden McGeady scored a late equaliser.
Elliott Bennett scored a superb goal to put his side level following Tom Barkhuizen’s opener, his fifth goal in four games.
Craig Conway then completed the turnaround and Rovers looked pretty comfortable in a game where the away side never really turned up but Aiden McGeady had different plans.
Rovers striker Sam Gallagher showed his inexperience by crossing the ball to nobody instead of keeping it in the corner. As a result, Preston were allowed to begin the attack which put McGeady in on goal.
The result sees them drop into the relegation places and the Rovers fans are feeling very low after that late blow, despite their commendable unbeaten run.
Below are a few tweets which sum their thoughts up…
Very disappointing end of the match but #Rovers played well today. Still unbeaten but need to pick up wins now.

Thought we made a good Preston side look ordinary for large spells, but it's points and wins we need not performances. #Rovers

i have a huge amount of respect for Mowbray with what he's done, but today, I blame him for the result, the subs made ruined the game…

You're 2-1 up in added time and you're next to their corner flag.
Just keep the ball.
Why would you cross it?
That's just stupid.#Rovers
