Blackburn to get us started.

4 - Martin watches a Graham flick-on through to McGovern.
5 - Jerome puts the Rovers defence under pressure, winning his side a cheap throw.
5 - Nothing made of it however, with Blackburn getting a free-kick on halfway.
6 - Tettey hauls down Emnes on halfway. Another free-kick, on the right this time.
8 - Pritchard bundled over by Nyambe in an advanced area. Nothing given. City come again.
8 - Rovers wrestle the ball back however and come forward themselves.
9 - Stalled by City. Throw to the away side just inside the Norwich half.

12 - Pinto gets to the byline and crosses. Steele up to catch before immediately kicking long, with City dealing with it well.
