FULL TIME: Blackburn Rovers 1 Watford 0
JORDAN Rhodes' injury time winner boosted Blackburn Rovers' promotion hopes as they beat Watford 1-0 at Ewood Park this afternoon.
The Scottish international turned smartly in the box to fire home two minutes into injury time to keep Rovers in the play-off positions.
Colin Kazim-Richards had missed a second half penalty as Blackburn Rovers looked like having to settle for a goalless draw at home to Watford.
The first half was a bit of a non event as Rovers dominated possession without ever creating any clear cut chances.
Jordan Rhodes looked isolated in attack, while Colin Kazim-Richards was wasteful in possession on the right wing.
Kazim-Richards did go close with a 20-yard shot that flew just wide, while Jason Lowe saw a fierce 20-yard drive comfortably held by Manuel Almunia.
At the other end, Paul Robinson was a spectator for the majority of the half as Watford seemed content to sit back and attempt to hit the hosts on rare breaks.
The second half showed little improvement as both sides continued to struggle to break each other down.
Ruben Rochina saw a low shot easily held by Almunia after a neat turn on 61, while Jean Alan Fanchone drove a shot into the netting for the visitors.
Kazim Richards almost broke the deadlock on 65 but his glancing header from Morten Gamst Pedersen's left wing cross was straight at Almunia.
Rovers' golden chance came on 76 as they were awarded a penalty after Rhodes' shot had been blocked by Tommie Hoban's arm.
Colin Kazim-Richards stepped up but, as he went to shoot, he slipped and his shot struck the cross bar and was cleared to safety.
Rovers were at least now looking more threatening as the game wore on and they weren't to be denied as Rhodes fired home in the dying seconds, after Rochina's shot had fallen at his feet.
