Sam Gallagher’s season with Blackburn ended on a sour note, as Rovers were relegated from the Championship despite a 3-1 win away at Brentford.

The Saints striker turned in an impressive performance at Griffin Park, helping his loan club to victory, but the three points were not enough to keep Tony Mowbray’s men in the second tier, due to fellow strugglers Nottingham Forest and Birmingham City also winning on the final day.

Gallagher played the full match, and was involved in Rovers’ second goal, scored by former Saint Danny Guthrie, after Charlie Mulgrew’s free-kick had put the visitors 1-0 up.

Gallagher went close to extending the advantage on a couple of occasions, before Lasse Vibe pulled one back for the Bees in the second half.

Craig Conway’s late penalty restored Rovers’ two-goal advantage, but results elsewhere went against them.

Gallagher can still reflect on an encouraging individual season in the Championship, as he netted 11 times during the campaign, while also adding another goal in the FA Cup.
