NUNO Gomes came off the bench to net a late winner as Blackburn Rovers came from behind to beat Barnsley and stay top of the Championship.

Jacob Mellis had fired Barnsley in front just after the half hour mark but Jordan Rhodes levelled in superb fashion, swivelling to find the top corner, on the stroke of half time.

Marlon Harewood fired wide after Scott Dann's poor backpass had put him clear on goal but it was Rovers who secure the victory when Fabio Nunes crossed from the left for fellow substitute Gomes to convert five minutes from time.
