A Point Secured As Rovers Hammered The Hammers


Recommended Posts

Blackburn Rovers will count themselves unlucky after creating chance after chance but yet failing to convert against an under par Hammers team.

The Hammers took an early lead when central midfielder Mark Noble cut in to the box and latched on to a lay off from the offside Luis Boa Morte. All this after Rovers had one rightly ruled out at the other end when Diouf marked the Keeper at a long throw, only for no defender to stick with him.

An inspired half time sub saw last years League 2 player of the year Keith Andrews enter the game at right back and it was the Irish made would earned Rovers a well deserved point early in the second half. A long throw into the box was only half cleared and Andrews smashed home from 7 yards through a crowded box.

Rovers pushed and had the ball in the Hammers net once again from Diouf, but like the last it was ruled out offside, when Diouf failed to spot the defence had stepped up from a Samba shot.

The Hammers had a late penalty shout but Keiron Dyer, who strangely wasn't injured, obviously had forgotten how to stay on his feet during his 3 years out injured.

The result sees Rovers drop to 17th, but well clear of 20th WBA and 19th Boro. The only real threat comes from Newcastle United who are 2 points below Rovers.

There is now an International break before Rovers entertain Spurs at 12:45 on Saturday 4th April.
