Manchester United striker Joshua King opened his Blackburn Rovers scoring account on the weekend.

Manchester United striker Joshua King opened his Blackburn Rovers scoring account on the weekend.

The 20-year old Norwegian attacker, who joined the Lancashire club from Old Trafford in November, was on the scoresheet for the first time as Rovers were beaten 4-1 by Championship league leaders Cardiff City 4-1 at Ewood Park on Friday.

In the 51st minute, King received a ball from Colin Kazim-Richards after a Jordan Rhodes flick-on and managed to slot home through the legs of Bluebirds keeper David Marshall.

It was King’s second goal in England’s second tier following his equalizer for Hull City in their 2-1 win over Middlesbrough in April during his 19-game spell at the KC Stadium.
