Nelsen scores for Rovers

7:35 am on 27 April 2009

The New Zealander Ryan Nelsen has scored his first goal for his English club Blackburn Rovers as they look to survive in the Premiership.

Nelson scored midway through the second half as Blackburn beat Wigan 2-nil at Ewood Park to move 6 points clear of the relegation zone.

Middlesbrough stay third from bottom after a 2-nil loss to Arsenal at the Emirites.

4th placed Arsenal have now gone unbeaten in 20 matches, they're 12 points behind leaders Manchester United and although the title has long been out of reach the Gunners are now virtually assured a top-four finish and Champions League football next season.
