Blackburn Rovers' Harvey Elliott during the Sky Bet Championship match at Vicarage Road, London.

Harvey Elliott scores first professional goal for Blackburn

Harvey Elliott notched his first professional goal in Blackburn’s 4-0 win over Coventry on Saturday afternoon.

The 17-year-old was making the second appearance of his loan spell at the Lancashire club and notched Rovers’ third goal with a left-footed finish from close-range.

He then added an assist late on, playing in Sam Gallagher with a simple ball across the box from the left side after a delightful flick on earlier in the play.

Elliott’s goal made him Rovers’ fourth-youngest scorer in history.

The win moved Blackburn up to 10th in the Championship.

Elsewhere, Sheyi Ojo was on target for Cardiff against Middlesbrough in a 1-1 draw. The 23-year-old is on another loan spell away from Anfield and lined up alongside fellow Liverpool loanee Harry Wilson for the Bluebirds.

We’ll have our usual full loan watch round-up on Monday.
