Fleetwood twice battle from behind to earn point at Blackburn

Fleetwood twice came from behind to secure a credible 2-2 Sky Bet League One draw at Blackburn.
All goals came in the second period, with Bradley Dack's fourth goal of the season aftr 53 minutes breaking the deadlock before Aiden O'Neill's first for the Cod Army levelled the scores 11 minutes later.
Rovers youngster Joe Nuttall marked his first-team debut with a 77th-minute strike but Wes Burns bundled home an equaliser to deny the hosts, who moved up to sixth.
After a forgettable first half which saw Alex Cairns brilliantly deny Marcus Antonsson, the game sprung into life.
Rovers took the lead when Cairns superbly thwarted Danny Graham's volley and Dack headed home the rebound.
The visitors responded in the 64th minute - Ashley Hunter's shot was well saved but O'Neill calmly slotted past David Raya.
Nuttall slammed home 13 minutes from time when he was in the right place to convert Derrick Williams' header across goal but Raya calamitously fumbled a corner and Burns bundled home in the 82nd minute to ensure the spoils were shared.
