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

Recommended Posts

Rovers are ahead at half-time thanks to a goal from Colin Kazim-Richards. It has been a poor first half from both sides, but Rovers took the lead just before the break in a game in which chances have been few and far between.

Rovers went closest to taking the lead in the early proceedings when Scott Dann headed wide, with the defender claiming that he had been pulled back in the box. The away side then received a blow when Joshua King was forced off with an injury. It appears to be a recurrence of the hamstring injury that had kept him out of the past few matches, and Appleton will be hoping that it is just another strain and not a serious tear.

For the second match in a row Rovers took the lead as the half drew to a close. It looked as though neither side would be able to open the scoring, but a defensive error allowed Kazim-Richards to race onto a long clearance and the Turkish international kept his composure to slot home and hand Rovers the advantage. It was Kazim-Richards' third of the season and Rovers will be hopeful that it will help them progress to the next round of the cup.
