Our first defeat of the season and it's goodbye to Ryan Woods
A second half goal sees us lose 1-0 away to Blackburn Rovers in an uninspiring game (although we did hit the bar twice) and the first time we have been beaten this season. We had made 4 changes from the midweek draw at Aston Villa and following that game Neal Maupay was given a 3-match ban for violent conduct. So with the team that had been selected I didn't expect us to win and hoped we might get away with a draw. Ryan Woods wasn't even on the bench and the reason is that he has gone on loan to Stoke City with an option for them to buy him in the January transfer window.
P.S. The only good thing today was that Villa let in an equaliser in the 93rd minute 😏
