Match ends, Leeds United 0, Blackburn Rovers 2.
Early goals from Craig Conway and Jordan Rhodes helped Blackburn beat fellow strugglers Leeds at Elland Road.
Conway put Blackburn in front after 17 seconds, firing Chris Taylor's cross into the bottom corner.
Rhodes doubled the lead as he turned away from Sam Byram and shot low beyond Marco Silvestri.
Tom Adeyemi headed against the post for Leeds before the break, but the hosts struggled to create chances as Rovers claimed their first win in four games.
Defeat left Leeds manager Steve Evans without a victory in three games since his appointment and the club winless at Elland Road since March.
Leeds remain 18th in the table, while Blackburn climbed above their opponents to 14th.
United got off to the worst possible start as captain Sol Bamba misjudged his clearing header from Taylor's ball in, allowing Conway to finish smartly on the half-volley.
Tom Lawrence ran through the Leeds defence moments later to set up Rhodes, who slotted inside the far post.
The hosts gradually grew into the game and Mirco Antenucci volleyed Luke Murphy's cross into the side-netting from close range.
Adeyemi went closer still as his glancing header came back off the woodwork, but Leeds could not sustain their pressure after the interval.
Antenucci shot straight at goalkeeper Jason Steele in the only real chance of the second half, as Leeds' run without a win was extended to six games.
