Blackburn vs Middlesbrough halted due to ‘medical incident’ in crowd at Championship clash

Blackburn Rovers’ 1-0 win over Middlesbrough was halted due to medical problems in the crowd.

After a nine-minute pause, the game resumed as Blackburn took to Twitter to provide an update.

They confirmed the supporter involved was ‘awake and breathing’ as the match resumed.

Rovers also wished the individual a ‘quick and full recovery’.

Speaking after the game, goalscorer Sam Gallagher said: “Best wishes to anyone in the crowd.”

And Rovers manager Tony Mowbray added: “It was mentioned in the dressing room. We’ll find out as soon as I finish here.

“This club is a very caring community and we will do everything to help him and his family.

“Hopefully we get some good news quickly.”

Shortly after the game resumed, Blackburn took the lead as Gallagher put the home team ahead.

Rovers are currently competing with the likes of Fulham, Bournemouth, QPR and West Brom for an automatic promotion to the Championship.

And a win over Boro puts them in second place, three points ahead of Bournemouth in third.

Blackburn has not featured in the Premier League since being relegated at the end of the 2011-12 season.

Meanwhile, 7th place team Middlesbrough is fighting for a play-off spot.

Under manager Chris Wilder, they won four straight games against Blackburn – but could do nothing to avoid a loss to Lancashire.

Wilder has been hired by Boro to replicate what he achieved with Sheffield United as he guided them to a ninth-place finish in the Prem.

Middlesbrough has spent only one season at the top of the table in the past 13 years – in the 2016-17 campaign when they picked up just 28 points.
