Exaggerated by the international break, Blackburn Rovers' previous victory over Derby County felt like an age away but Tony Mowbray's men were back to winning ways with a convincing 4-0 win against Coventry City.
A brace from Adam Armstrong, Harvey Elliott's first Rovers goal and Sam Gallagher's first goal of the season rounded up the scoreline for the visitors, with Ben Brereton producing three assists as the attacking trio stole all the headlines.
After the frustration of midweek in not getting a result in a game where they felt at least a point was justified, Rovers made amends and made their man advantage count after Michael Rose's red card in the 14th minute.
It was another breathtaking attacking display, the third time Rovers have scored four goals or more this season, and their performance had rightfully earned the praise of Quest's EFL pundits Clinton Morrison and Sam Parkin.
Analysing the game on Quest's EFL highlights show, Parkin said: "They're probably one of the last teams in the division you'd want to go down to ten men for 75 minutes against because Blackburn's front line are scintillating at the moment."
Morrison followed that up, adding: "Harvey Elliott and Brereton are really good. Armstrong has been oustanding. Tell me a better front three in the Championship at the moment? I can't, and they're in really good form.
"When Blackburn got Harvey Elliott I thought 'what a signing'. And he's still only 17 years of age."
And the shower of compliments didn't end there. Parkin even slipped in a 'dark horse' line at the very end.
"Brilliant, and he's been on the scene for a while," stated Parkin. "It's great to see him get his first run of games so hopefully he does really well.
"With Blackburn, reading the programme notes of the Watford manager, he said Blackburn were the best team they played against. The manager of Bournemouth who I spoke to a few weeks ago said similar, they're dark horses.
"They definitely should have taken a point at Vicarage Road, and they've won today."
