Chicken invades pitch at Blackburn - AGAIN

[Monday, March 18, 2013 ]

The chickens of Blackburn Rovers once again conspired to invade the pitch at Ewood Park - possibly in protest against poultry company owners Venky's.

A cockerel wearing a small flag as a cape appeared in the first half during the East Lancashire derby between Blackburn and Burnley on Sunday.

The match was interrupted for two minutes as a steward rushed to collect the chicken amid cheers from the crowd.

Of course, this is not the first time that a chicken has invaded the Ewood Park pitch.

Last May, a chicken was also thrown into the fray at the pitch during the 1-0 defeat to Wigan Athletic as Blackburn were relegated from the Premier League.
