[Archived] News Article -> 2012/13 Half-Time: Rovers 0 Charlton Athletic 1

Recommended Posts

Michael Appleton's first half in charge of Rovers has not gone to plan as he sees his side behind 1-0 at home to Charlton. It has been a flat first half at Ewood Park, but the one moment of quality has put the away side in front.

Rovers started slightly the better of the two sides and had their best chance of the half from a corner, but Rochina headed straight into the arms of the keeper when he should have done better. Shortly after, Chartlon were ahead when a neatly worked short free-kick was only half cleared by Hanley, allowing Stephens to collect the ball on the edge of the box and beat Kean with a powerful effort that went in off the underside of the crossbar. Chartlon nearly doubled their lead just after, but Olsson did well to clear the ball off the line after Kean had saved the initial effort from Jackson.

It was a poor first half and Rovers look in danger of slipping to their first defeat of 2013 if they do not improve significantly in the second period.
