A nine-man Pune FC were handed a 3-0 defeat by visitors Blackburn Rovers in a rain-drenched exhibition match here this evening. Jason Roberts scored a brace at the 40th and 76th minutes respectively, while Japanese striker Ruben Rochina (54th) struck the remaining one in a night of misery for the local team at the Shiv Chhatrapati Sports Complex here.

Pune FC initially showed some spirit but they soon began to trail behind after their defender Anas Edathodika was given marching orders after being double booked at the 20th minute.
