VIDEO: Joshua King scores a classy first goal on loan at Blackburn Rovers

by Sam Peoples

Joshua King netted his first goal for Blackburn Rovers last night in their 4-1 defeat to table topping Cardiff City.

The striker joined Blackburn on loan a few weeks ago and has been impressing in his early performances, none more so than last night when he bagged his first goal – a fine side foot finish after streaking away from the defence with his ferocious pace.

He was in fine form for the  Manchester United U21s before he joined Blackburn on loan but wanted first team football so seeked a loan move away in order to keep his national place with Norway. I do hope that United can hold onto him because he has made some fantastic progression in the past 24 months and only looks set to get better but with our current strikers, game time for youngsters is going to be extremely hard to come by.
