LOAN WATCH: Chelsea talents Abraham, Brown trade goals as Bristol City hold Rotherham

It was a good day for any Chelsea supporters watching the Championship on Saturday afternoon.

Rotherham United's eventual 2-2 draw with Bristol City saw two Blues youngsters on the scoresheet at New York Stadium.

Izzy Brown, who impressed in Holland with Vitesse Arnhem last season, scored his first senior goal in England when opening the scoring for the Millers in the sixth minute.

Brown pounced on a Robins error when Aden Flint and Richard O'Donnell both hesitated to win a bouncing ball, allowing the winger to steal in and slot home Greg Halford's lofted pass with apparent ease.

Brown then had a hand in Rotherham's second goal just before the hour-mark, finding Halford on the left side of the area which invited the to shoot on target and prompt another mistake from Flint who saw the ball deflect in over O'Donnell.

But Brown's Chelsea colleague Abraham, as he has done so many times already this season, got things going for City with an opportunistic sliding finish from inside the six-yard box in the 74th minute.

It was the 18-year-old's fourth Championship goal in six outings, talking his overall Robins tally to six goals in eight appearances.

And in the 83rd minute, Lee Johnson's side equalised when Bobby Reid met Joe Bryan's left-flank cross at the back post.

Both Abraham and Brown were delighted for each other after managing to find the back of the net on what was a monumental day for the talented duo.
