Blackburn Rovers' Under-21s came from two goals down to earn a point against Arsenal on Monday night.

The Gunners lined up with summer signing Jurrien Timber in the side, making his appearance for the side since rupturing his anterior cruciate ligament on the opening day of the season.

It didn't take long for the Dutch international's quality to show as he opened the scoring with a world-class strike inside 10 minutes. The defender picked up the ball on the edge of the box, cut inside and unleashed a venomous strike into the far top corner.

The away side doubled their lead at Ewood Park from the penalty spot when Amario Cozier-Duberry converted from 12 yards after Nathan Butler-Oyedeji has been fouled.

But that lead only lasted two minutes as Harrison Wood fired into half the deficit. The winger's shot from the edge of the box deflected into the corner to make it game-on.

Mike Sheron's side went in level at the break with an equaliser right on the stroke of half-time. Wood went from scorer to assister as he cut the ball back for Junior Nsangou to level the score at 2-2.

That was where the scoring ended, with the teams sharing the spoils at Ewood Park. The result leaves Rovers 12th place in the PL2 table, with the top 16 securing a place in the end-of-season play-offs, ahead of their season finale against Sunderland this weekend.

Blackburn Rovers: Goddard; Duru, Gamble, Whitehall, Batty; Cirino (Powell 81), Doherty (Fyles 65), Finneran, Caddick, Wood; Nsangou.
