FULL-TIME: AFC Telford United 0 Blackburn Rovers 4

This Is Lancashire: Ruben Rochina scored a brace as Rovers got their pre-season off to a winning start Ruben Rochina scored a brace as Rovers got their pre-season off to a winning start

RUBEN Rochina scored twice and Leon Best and Jack O’Connell once each as Rovers started their pre-season preparations with an ultimately comfortable victory over their non-league opponents.

After a goalless opening period the transfer-listed Best broke the deadlock in the 56th minute with a super strike before setting up Rochina to double the advantage four minutes later.

The Spaniard, whose future at Ewood Park remains uncertain, added a stylish second in the 75th minute before young defender O’Connell headed home two minutes from time to round off a rampant second-half display.

Rovers, whose squad was missing Paul Robinson, Tommy Spurr, Jason Lowe, Corry Evans, David Dunn, Markus Olsson and new signings Alex Baptiste and Chris Brown, fielded entirely different teams in each half.

On a bone-dry, bobbly and, in places, bare pitch, it was Conference Premier new boys Telford who started the brighter with Anthony O’Connor, playing at left back with Ben Marshall operating at right back, making a good interception to prevent a clear goalscoring opportunity.

But Gary Bowyer’s Championship side grew into the game and were dominating the ball when the half was stopped for eight minutes after one of the linesmen collapsed.

Medics, including Rovers doctor Duncan Robertson, were quickly on the scene.

After receiving medical attention the linesman, who was feeling sick before kick-off, was stretchered off to the dressing room where he was given the all-clear.

After the match resumed, and with a replacement for the stricken linesman found, Rovers wasted a string of chances.

An excellent Neill Byrne challenge denied Jordan Rhodes a shot on goal before Tom Cairney, operating in the centre of the park, volleyed two good openings past the opposite posts.

Josh King then forced Telford goalkeeper Jonathan Hedge into his first save, after Andy Owens tried unsuccessfully to shield the ball out of play, before the winger snatched at another attempt from the edge of the box.

Simon Eastwood was also tested before the half was out, gathering a long-range effort from Sean Clancy at the second attempt after Marshall gave the ball away.

Eastwood’s replacement, Jake Kean, was straight into the action at the start of the second half, making a brilliant close-range save from Andy Todd.

Equally impressive was Kristian Platt’s block to deny Devarn Green at the other end moments later.

But there was nothing Telford, who made 10 outfield changes at the break, could do to stop Best from firing Rovers in front as he collected a pass from John O’Sullivan and cut inside to blast an unstoppable right-footer low into the bottom corner from 18 yards.

Best then turned creator for Rochina with the former’s pass, expertly pulled back into the middle of the area, gleefully side-footed home by the latter.

Green, who this month signed his first professional deal with the club, would have extended the lead further, after playing a sharp one-two with Lee Williamson, had it not been for a low stop from Hedge.

But Rochina was not to be denied and 15 minutes from time he brought a neat lay-off under his control before lifting a delightful chipped finish over Hedge from just inside the box.

Rochina went close to completing his hat-trick from distance before Luke Varney rose superbly to lay the ball on a plate for O’Connell, who steered a clever header into the bottom corner.

Telford: Hedge, Baynes (Booth 46), Owens (Lever 46), Byrne (Platt 46), McDonald (Akrigg 46), Barnett (Grogan 46), Cooke (Todd 46), Goddard (Ainscough 46), Smith (Farrell 46), Deacy (Gray 46), Clancy (Hancock 46).

Rovers: Eastwood (Kean 46), Marshall (Henley 46), Hanley (Songo’o 46), Kilgallon (Lenihan 46), O'Connor (O’Connell 46), King (Green 46), Taylor (Williamson 46), Cairney (O’Sullivan 46), Conway (Varney 46), Rhodes (Rochina 46), Gestede (Best 46).

Goals: Best 56, Rochina 60, 75, O’Connell 88.

Attendance: 1,082 (286 away).

Burnley are PL by name only. You have a League One ground and League One facilities. You are chasing Chumpionship players, offering Chumpionship wages, and you mugs are being charged some of the highest prices in the PL for season tickets. Oh, and we've won the bloody thing!

Oh, and I'm still waiting for you to answer my question that I asked you several times last week. The one in response to your ludicrous claim that you have always been the bigger club. The question was; how were you the bigger club, when you were in division FOUR (which we have never been in), playing to 'crowds' of less than TWO THOUSAND, entering competitions to win SHERPA VANS, whilst two DIVISIONS below your illustrious neighbours, all before Jack walker came along?

Jealousy is a terrible thing, get over it!
Pre jack Walker days, the only comparison could be in 1983 when both clubs were in the old 2nd division, Blackburn were near the top of the league, Burnley near the bottom, Blackburn averaged 4500_5000 crowds, Burnley averaged 7000_7500 crowds, football at that time was going through a bad time and crowds waste poor most places, but Blackburn were exceptionally poor, then came jw and they all jumped on the band wagon, and the only way you are keeping your fans today is by virtually giving your season tickets away, bye the way I think that is a good move by the club because in my opinion that's what football is worth, especially for the hard up in a mill town like Blackburn

What an asset Best would be if GB could get him to think "Team" instead of "Me", he would repay his salary in no time.

As for Rochina? Well we all know what he is capable of, is this the first bloom showing of him becoming a team player?

I have to admit that Best and Rochina were head and shoulders yesterday and gave a glimpse of what could be. But the real stars were the first team who sat in the stand throughout the second half and interacted with the young supporters so well. We have that old family club feel again most definitely. I thank young "Big Head" Grant Hanley for posing for a snap with my grandson who will now be a Rover forever from now on.

Blackburn Rovers 1 - 2 Burnley
Burnley in the Premier League
Burnley are PL by name only. You have a League One ground and League One facilities. You are chasing Chumpionship players, offering Chumpionship wages, and you mugs are being charged some of the highest prices in the PL for season tickets. Oh, and we've won the bloody thing!

Oh, and I'm still waiting for you to answer my question that I asked you several times last week. The one in response to your ludicrous claim that you have always been the bigger club. The question was; how were you the bigger club, when you were in division FOUR (which we have never been in), playing to 'crowds' of less than TWO THOUSAND, entering competitions to win SHERPA VANS, whilst two DIVISIONS below your illustrious neighbours, all before Jack walker came along?
Jealousy is a terrible thing, get over it!
Pre jack Walker days, the only comparison could be in 1983 when both clubs were in the old 2nd division, Blackburn were near the top of the league, Burnley near the bottom, Blackburn averaged 4500_5000 crowds, Burnley averaged 7000_7500 crowds, football at that time was going through a bad time and crowds waste poor most places, but Blackburn were exceptionally poor, then came jw and they all jumped on the band wagon, and the only way you are keeping your fans today is by virtually giving your season tickets away, bye the way I think that is a good move by the club because in my opinion that's what football is worth, especially for the hard up in a mill town like Blackburn
My season ticket's £430,how much is yours?

It's a pity because both could do the job with an adjustment of attitude and playing style respectively.

Preseason games don't really mean much but there would be twice as many comments to scroll through if it was a poor result.

Time for GB to make the right decisions.

KEEP ROCHINA. Sometimes I feel like if players like Messi started at Blackburn they would not progress, due to lack of consistency.

I don know why we signed Cambell last season when he proved he could not score, and then players like Varney who cant score, yet players like Nunes who has never had a bad game when given the chance get let go, and players like King and Williamson despite lots poor touches,passes and bad games, are given the chance to get better, which as a result are becoming so.

Didn't Telford knock your shower out of the FA Cup not all that long ago?

Telford 3-0 B'stards.
Your knowledge of all things Burnley is commendable Stoner. Thanks for showing an interest.
When your rivals get humiliated by a non league team, in the FA Cup, you tend to remember it.

Was that a shop window to sell Rochina and Best? Are they going to Portugal? Can we now expect them to be in the squad ? Its difficult to understand why our best two performers are getting the elbow.We won't be able to judge anything until we play a decent side so it looks like we will have to await Cardiff before we can tell just how good they are.

What about the friendly with Stoke? That may give us an idea how we will shape up this season.

That game was all about Ruben. Absolutely class act. Totally walked through their team. Even on 35k a week Ruben is value for money.
