Tom Naylor


Tom Naylor has played National League football with both Mansfield and Grimsby

Tom Naylor’s late header secured Burton a first away point in the Championship to leave Owen Coyle still searching for a first win as Blackburn boss.

On-loan Sam Gallagher looked to have won it on his first start for Rovers, heading in Craig Conway’s corner.

But Naylor met Matty Palmer’s left-wing corner to seal a dramatic point.

Conway had put Rovers ahead in the first half with a 25-yard drive that flew in off the bar, but Burton levelled with Jackson Irvine’s header.
