The Blackburn Rovers manager Sam Allardyce says New Zealander Ryan Nelsen's maiden goal for the English Premier League football club couldn't have come at a better time.

Blackburn beat Wigan 2-nil at Ewood Park to move 6 points clear of the relegation zone.

It is Nelsen's first goal in 140 appearances for the club.

In today's other match 4th placed Arsenal beat Middlesbrough 2-nil.
