After a length break, Blackburn were back in action against a Bolton Wanderers outfit fighting there way out of the relegation zone. In what was always going to be a physical encounter, Sparky chose to bring the suspended players straight back into the line up, with Samba, Dunny and Gamst returning to action.
Rovers got of to a bright start, with Benni Mac striking a sweet half volley, only to be tipped away by the Bolton Custodian. Brad Friedel was called into action soon after, parrying away a 6 yard volley from everybodies favourite player, Mr ElHadji Diouf.
Fortune appeared to favour our Rovers when midway into the first half, David Dunn was brought down in the box. Benni Mac, steppd up, Benni Mac Scored. Santa Cruz had half a chance to double the lead, however his header just before the break scraped wide of the post.
The second half started of in a flurry, with Bolton making a change up front. This paid immediate dividends, Kevin Davies latching on to a loose ball in the box, equalising for Bolton. They continued to maintain the pressure, until, against the run of play, Blackburn countered. Rovers surged up the field, a through ball placed up front, and once again, the Bolton Defender came in with a sloppy tackle, another penalty to Rovers. Benni Mac stepped up again and struck this ball with more conviction, 2-1 Rovers. From here on in, Blackburn took control, Dunny made a blistering run on the left flank, whipping in a cross which Bentley headered in from a tight angle.
The Axe made his way onto the field for Dunny, whilst Robbo was brought on for Benni Mac, who recieved a standing obvation. Robbo made an immediate impact, holding up the ball then sending in a deep cross, which Morten Gamst Pederson blasted into the back of the net.
4-1 it finished to Rovers.
