Blackburn Rovers secured a resounding 5-1 victory over Sunderland in a thrilling Championship encounter at the Stadium of Light.

The top goalscorer of the Championship, Sammie Szmodics, showcased his prowess by netting a first-half brace, leading Blackburn to their first win under the guidance of manager John Eustace. This victory marked a significant breakthrough for Rovers, who had endured a ten-game winless streak prior to this emphatic triumph.

In a dominant display, Blackburn’s Ryan Hedges, Tyrhys Dolan, and Andrew Moran further extended the lead in the second half, with Chris Rigg notching a consolation goal for Sunderland. The Stadium of Light witnessed a one-sided affair as Blackburn capitalized on a lackluster Sunderland performance.

Under interim manager Mike Dodds, Sunderland’s struggles continued as they failed to capitalize on their recent victory, having won only one of their last nine matches. Meanwhile, Blackburn, who had not secured an away win since November, displayed a clinical performance that saw them emerge as deserving victors.

Sam Szmodics, the standout performer of the match, notched two impressive goals in the first half to set the tone for Blackburn. His striking abilities were on full display as he found the back of the net with precision and finesse. Additionally, Ryan Hedges, Tyrhys Dolan, and Andrew Moran contributed goals to Blackburn’s comprehensive victory.

Sunderland interim manager Mike Dodds expressed his disappointment at the team’s performance, labeling it as ‘completely unacceptable.’ On the other hand, Blackburn manager John Eustace hailed his team’s outstanding performance and emphasized the importance of their collective efforts in securing the win.
