#PLHistory #premierleaguestories #PL on April 14 1993 – Hard Labour for Blackburn who bounced back from Leeds Mauling with #StuartRipley goal
Blackburn 2 Ipswich 1
Blackburn picked themselves up after their mauling at Leed’s but they had to work hard for victory. They were comfortably in control at 2-0 until Simon Milton conjured a goal out of nothing for Ipswich in the 68th minute. Milton’s 30 yard shot on the run flashed past the goalkeeper who did well to get a hand to the ball.
Blackburn had gone ahead in the sixth minute when Mike Newell measured a perfect cross which Stuart Ripley headed home. Skipper Kevin Moran looked fortunate to escape conceding a penalty for his tackle on Chris Kiwomya and Ipswich’s luck was out again two minutes from the interval when their skipper Phil Whelan scored an unfortunate own goal just two minutes prior to break.
