Blackburn Rovers 2-2 Fleetwood Town

Fleetwood twice came from behind to earn a point against Blackburn Rovers.

Following a goalless first half, Bradley Dack nodded in a rebound to give Rovers the lead after goalkeeper Alex Cairns saved from Danny Graham.

Aiden O'Neill slotted in an equaliser after Ashley Hunter's shot was saved, but Joe Nuttall finished off Derrick Williams' header across goal for 2-1.

Goalkeeper David Raya then fumbled a corner to allow Wes Burns to bundle in a second leveller and earn a point.
