After a 15th-placed finish last year, Blackburn Rovers were handed a difficult start to the new Championship campaign, playing host to a Swansea side who reached the playoff final last season.
Sam Gallagher‘s opener meant they went into the break ahead, and Ben Brereton would double their lead early in the second half with a converted penalty.
Jamie Paterson quickly reduced the deficit back to one goal, but Rovers would stand strong to keep the Swans at bay and secure all three points.
After an underwhelming pre-season campaign, that was an impressive start for Tony Mowbray‘s men, who will be keen to build a winning run to start the season, meaning they will be desperate to advance with a victory over the visiting League One outfit on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, Morecambe will arrive at Ewood Park with the aim of causing an upset to book their spot in the second round.
