Premier League 2

Highlights: West Ham United U23s 1-3 Blackburn Rovers U23s

 

West Ham United U23s fell deeper into relegation trouble after losing 3-1 to Blackburn Rovers in Premier League 1 Division 2 on Monday evening.

The Hammers, who featured Fabian Balbuena and Grady Diangana in their starting XI, fell behind before drawing level through Dan Kemp's first-half goal at Chigwell Construction Stadium.

However, after the break, sloppy errors cost the hosts and Blackburn scored twice in the final 15 minutes to take all three points back to Lancashire and leave the Irons second-from-bottom in the table with just five games to play.
