We “smash” Blackburn Rovers 5-2 at Griffin Park
Well we didn’t exactly smash them but we deserved to win. After our dismal display at Barnet I was hoping for some sort of response by the boys but after 7 minutes we were already two-nil down (shades of deja vu from the Preston game in October and the Swansea game in December when we 3-0 down after about 30 mins). Benrahma got one back after 13 mins. In the second half two goals by Watkins, the customary Maupay goal then a time added on fifth by Canos saw us romp home.
This week we said goodbye to Nico Yennaris as he was transferred to Beijing Sinobo Guoan. There were no other comings or goings as the transfer window closed at 11pm on the 31st January. Now we have to beat Barnet in the FA Cup 4th Round replay on Tuesday.
