Half-Time Report: Blackburn Rovers in command at Ewood Park

Goals from Jordan Rhodes, Grant Hanley and Rudy Gestede hand Blackburn Rovers a comfortable half-time lead at Ewood Park in their Championship clash with Bournemouth.

Blackburn Rovers are in complete control at half time in their Championship clash against Bournemouth as they lead 3-0 at Ewood Park.

Rovers took the lead in the 13th minute as Jordan Rhodes displayed his predatory instincts to rob Steve Cook in the box and fire the ball past Lee Camp.

The home side doubled their lead when Grant Hanley rose highest in the penalty area from a Tom Cairney corner to power a header into the net.

It got even better for Gary Bowyer's men when Craig Conway surged forward and his effort deflected off Rudy Gestede and wrong footed Camp to allow the ball to roll over the goalline.

Rhodes nearly notched his second of the game as he latched onto Marcus Olsson's cross from the left, but his shot smashed the inside of the post and bounced clear.
