Leeds United loanee Marcus Antonsson has declared his elation on Twitter after scoring his fourth goal in three games for Blackburn Rovers on Tuesday night.

The 26-year-old took his tally to seven goals for the season from 16 outings in all competitions, as it appears he has begun to find his feet in Tony Mowbray's side.

Scoring two of Blackburn's three goals against Oxford United on Saturday in a 3-0 win, Antonsson was at it again on Tuesday night as the former Premier League champions earned a 4-2 win at the Kassam Stadium.

The Swede capitalised on a rebound after playmaker Bradley Dack had seen his shot parried by Oxford goalkeeper Simon Eastwood, allowing him to tap home with ease to get his name on the score sheet once again.

Antonsson reacted on his Twitter account after the match, stating Blackburn's display as "another good win away from home" as Mowbray's side climb to sixth in the third tier of English football.

Antonsson struggled at Elland Road last season, managing just three goals all season and failing to feature following Leeds' dismal loss to Sutton United in the FA Cup in January 2017.

However, his loan to Blackburn seems to have reignited his goalscoring touch and could see the Whites give him another chance to shine in Yorkshire as Pierre-Michel Lasogga fails to hit the heights expected of him.

Antonsson is likely to be in action once again this Saturday as he looks to continue his red-hot form at Ewood Park, where Blackburn play host to Bristol Rovers.
