Leicester City and Blackburn Rovers fans react on Twitter to Tom Lawrence performance

Ewood Park

Leicester City loanee Tom Lawrence impressed for Blackburn Rovers with his performance against Leeds United.

Tom Lawrence produced a man-of-the-match performance for Blackburn Rovers as they beat Leeds United 2-0 at Elland Road.

The former Manchester United trainee is on loan from Premier League side Leicester City, and made the most of a televised fixture to showcase his talent.

Lawrence provided the assist for Jordan Rhodes' goal, the second of the game, with the victory taking Blackburn into 14th in the Championship.

The 21-year-old recently earned a call-up for the Welsh national team and clearly has a bright future ahead of him.

Lawrence now has two assists this season, and made up for a disappointing display in the Lancashire derby against Burnley at the weekend.

He completed 93 per cent of his passes against Leeds, the highest in the Blackburn starting line-up, and was the only Rovers player to have two successful dribbling attempts.

Lawrence's loan spell runs until the end of January, and supporters of his parent club Leicester City were impressed with his display.

Blackburn Rovers supporters also took to Twitter to praise the youngster.
