Something From The Weekend: Leigh Griffiths; Blackburn Rovers; Fury's switch of styles
The Good, The Bad and The Odd
The Good: Leigh Griffiths
What a moment for the boyhood Hibernian supporter who scored the 85th-minute winner in their 2-1 victory over Aberdeen in the Scottish Cup semi-final at Hampden Park, which took his side to the final of a competition they haven't won in 110 years – a fact Griffiths has always been reminded of by fans of Edinburgh neighbours Hearts, who they meet in the final. "Obviously being brought up a Hibs fan you get taunted by the Hearts fans," the 21-year-old striker, who is on loan from Wolves, said. "To score at that end, in front of the thousands of Hibs fans is a dream come true."
The Bad: Blackburn Rovers
Steve Kean's side have shipped 41 goals away from home in the league this season, eight more than any other team. Overall, Kean's beleaguered charges are finishing the campaign in the worst way possible, having now lost five league games in a row. It is the club's worst losing run in the division since suffering six successive defeats under Paul Ince between November and December 2008. He was sacked before having the chance to lose a seventh.
The Odd: Fury's switch of styles
Tyson Fury used a disciplined southpaw stance in his Irish heavyweight title fight on Saturday – to the surprise of veteran opponent Martin Rogan. Switching from his usual orthodox style, Fury himself also seemed taken aback for the first couple of rounds, but he soon got to grips with his new lefty style and stopped Rogan in the fifth. "I'm ambidextrous," Fury proudly proclaimed. "I can punch as hard with the right as I can the left."
