A really strong Liverpool reserves line up took Blackburn apart at the Racecourse ground. The Reds were four up before the hour mark which saw four different Reds scorers. Craig Lindfield bagged the first goal when he finished off a move involving Pennant and Fowler.
The Reds had other chances to extend the lead before Robbiw Fowler did so. Pennant found Fowler at the back post and the Reds striker chipped the Rovers keeper.
Pennant extended the lead further before half time when he struck home a long range effort.
After half time the Reds further extended their lead through Bolo Zenden. Pennant supplied the chance on a plate for Zenden who drilled home a shot.
Shortly after the Reds switched both Dudek and Aurelio for Padelli and Huth Rovers grabbed a consolation goal. O'Keefe bagged the goal from close range.
However the attitude of the Reds was excellent on the night and the Reds and they deserved their win.
