Henning Berg's 10th placed team are nine points off the automatic promotion places after goals from Kevin Davies and Lee Chung-Yong fired the visitors into a two-goal lead at Ewood Park.

Davies struck after 93 seconds against his former club and South Korea midfielder Lee got the second after Chris Eagles' free-kick was pushed onto a post in the 61st minute.

Scotland striker Jordan Rhodes got one back eight minutes from full-time, but it was too late to stop Blackburn slipping to their second defeat in the space of five days.
