    • 90' Beep beep! And that is it. Full-time at Ewood Park. It finishes 2-2. A tale of two halves indeed. Hope you enjoyed the following the game. Good night!
    • 89' POST!! Ryan Nelsen can't believe it as his header comes off the foot of the post. Agony for Rovers!
    • 89' Nervy moments here for Bolton as Puygrenier concedes a free-kick on the right.
    • 86' GOAL! And the equaliser! A scramble in the box and Bolton fail to clear. McCarthy nips in to grab the goal. The crowd go wild!
    • 84' Oooohh! Samuel does well to head clear after Warnock finds space on the right.
    • 79' A chance for Rovers as Emerton hits one from distance. Jaaskelainen has it covered though.
    • 76' Grella is booked for a challenge on Samuel.
    • 76' Blackburn are still pushing forward but their heads seem to have gone down after that penalty miss.
    • 74' Makukula makes way for Mark Davies. The big man has been superb tonight.
    • 69' And save!! Amazing! The keeper' dives low to his right to keep his team in front. Fantastic save!
    • 68' Jaaskelainen is booked.
    • 68' Penalty!! Jaaskelainen tumbles in Santa Cruz and is yellow carded for his troubles. Quite a turnaround! McCarthy to take the penalty...
    • 67' Talk about a game of two halves. Blackburn are up for this, no doubt.
    • 65' Goal!!! It was coming, you have to say! Blackburn pull one back through Stephen Warnock, the defender rifling the ball home from a tight angle.
    • 62' Still no breakthrough from Rovers. They are trying but Bolton just keep on repelling their advances.
    • 57' Santa Cruz replaces Ooijer with Tugay on for Pedersen.
    • 57' Roque Santa Cruz is on for Blackburn. The Ewood Park side need his goals!
    • 53' McCarthy fails to connect with a shot and spoons the ball skyward.
    • 50' Blackburn are pushing for a goal but, as in the first-half, Bolton aren't letting them anywhere near the box.
    • 46' And we're off for the second-half and almost immediatley Andrews clatters into Nolan and concedes a free-kick.
    • 45' And that is half-time. A question of too little too late from Blackburn there as Andrews fails to claw back Bolton's 2-0 lead with that shot. The visitors are looking comfortable it has to be said.
    • 45' Close! Andrews sends a speculative half volley through a crowd of Bolton defenders and inches wide!
    • 44' Rovers are pressing in the closing minutes of the half but are still finding it hard to get a shot on goal.
    • 41' Emerton gets a yellow card for a high challenge on Bolton's O'Brien.
    • 40' The answer is no. Bolton clear with ease.
    • 39' Puygrenier takes down Roberts on the edge of the area? Can Blackburn take advantage from the free-kick?
    • 37' Rovers are looking for an immediate response but any moves are breaking down just outside the Bolton box.
    • 33' Goal!! Blackburn are in real trouble here! Kevin Davies' first shot is saved well by Paul Robinson but the Bolton striker is allowed a second effort and slots home from a tight angle for 2-0!!
    • 31' Blackburn's Roberts escapes down the right but his link play with Pedersen comes to nothing.
    • 28' McCarthy puts wide for Blackburn as the Bolton back four shout for offside.
    • 25' Makukula tries an ambitious overhead kick in the area but the Blackburn defence hack clear. Did the ball come off Samba's arm there? The referee doesn't think so and waves play on.
    • 24' Brett Emerton puts the ball out of play on the far right for Blackburn. The Australian should have done better there.
    • 20' Bolton are riding a wave at the moment. That goal has certainly perked them up. If they can hang on, and there is a while to go yet, the Trotters will finish the evening five points ahead of Blackburn.
    • 17' That is Bolton's first goal in four games...
    • 15' From nothing! Ariza Makukula crosses from the right and Matthew Taylor is in the box to poke the ball home for Bolton. Well, well, well. That should liven things up a bit.
    • 12' Oooohhh! A scramble in the Blackburn box and Kevin Nolan misses a chance at the far post for Bolton
    • 8' Rovers are under a bit of pressure at the moment as Bolton press down both wings. It comes to an end though when Fabrice Muamba handles on the edge of the box.
    • 3' Blackburn, on the other hand, are still unbeaten under Big Sam with two wins and two draw in their last four league games.
    • 2' Gary Megson looks a bit worried on the touchline and is already frantically rousing his troops. His team are looking for their first win in five league games.
    • 1' A slow start as Jason Roberts tries his luck from just outside the box.
    • - BOLTON WANDERERS TEAM NEWS: Kevin Nolan comes back into the side following a suspension while new signing Sebastien Pugrenier makes his debut.
    • - BLACKBURN TEAM NEWS: Jason Roberts comes back into the team with Roque Santa Cruz dropping to the bench.
    • - Hello and good evening. Welcome to Blackburn's home clash with Bolton Wanderers. Kick off in a couple of minutes...
