Thanks for joining me tonight. Analysis and reaction in The Argus tomorrow

9:44pm

Albion deserved to win but it is a 13th draw of the season and that could cost them at the end of the season but let's hope not.

9:43pm

FT Albion 1 Blackburn 1. Kazenga LuaLua fired inches wide from 20 yards in stoppage time, then Orlandi had an effort blocked

9:38pm

Albion still pressing without any major chances

9:34pm

Vicente has been amed MoM. It couldn't be anyone else tonight

9:29pm

Vicente is just an artist. He had five players trying to stop him as he burst into the area with fancy footwork

9:22pm

LuaLua on for Buckley

9:18pm

Albion are pressing and just need to show a bit of patience. Rovers are looking a little ragged and have five players on yellows now

9:10pm

Murphy booked for bad challenge on Bridcutt. Blackburn had three other players booked in the penalty incident

9:08pm

Markus Olsson handles a cross, the linesman gives the penalty and VICENTE drives it down the middle 1-1

9:01pm

Blackburn appeal for a penalty when a Rhodes shot hits El-Abd's hand but little he could do about it

8:58pm

Vicente cross from the left is headed past his own post for a corner by Martin Olsson in the second minute. Almost an own goal

8:53pm

Second half is under way ...

8:52pm

Albion on their way back out. Interesting that Orlandi came on for Hoskins not CMS

8:49pm

 

8:38pm

Hard to comprehend Albion are behind here. Nine decent chances in the half and Blackburn score from their only shot on target

8:37pm

HT Albion 0 Blackurn 1

8:37pm

Hammond header kept out at point-blank range by Kean from a Vicente cross. Then from the corner a header from Upson is well saved by Kean. Both in first half stoppage time.

8:34pm

Orlandi is on for the injured Hoskins who departs on a stretcher

8:31pm

Hoskins is down injured ...

8:25pm

Campbell heads over the bar for Blackburn who are trying to slo the game down as much as they can

8:21pm

It's gone a lttle flat since the goal. Albion need to pick it up again because they were playing so well

8:16pm

Just before the goal Buckley diverted a Hammond shot on to the bar before Kean got it clear

8:14pm

The goal was completely against the run of play after a great start by Albion and came from only Blackburn's second attack. Goal time was 23mins

8:13pm

Blackburn take the lead against the run of play as Scott DANN heads a Danny Murphy corner into the far corner of the net

8:05pm

Michael Appleton is looking frustrated. His side are chasing shadows

8:01pm

Now a right-footed drive from Bruno flies wide. That is six chances, on or off target, in the first 11 minutes and three corners

8:00pm

Far post header from Ulloa is blocked with a shout of handball at the same time but nothing given

8:00pm

Buckley chases a long ball and prods it goalwards but Kean recovers to scramble it away for a corner. Strong start by Albion with Vicente at the heart of everything

7:58pm

Vicente, having tested his range a minute earlier, lets flies from 22 yards and the ball zooms past the upright

7:52pm

A positive start from Albion. Fierce strike from Dean Hammond earns a second-minute corner from which Ulloa volleys wide. It looks like a front three of Buckley, Ulloa and Hoskins with Vicente playing in front of Hammond and Bridcutt. Albion kicking towards the South Stand

7:47pm

The match is under way ...

7:45pm

Bridcutt obviously captain again

7:44pm

Players are on their way out ...

7:39pm

7:33pm

This will be Vicente's first competitive start at The Amex since the 1-1 draw with Birmingham last April

7:22pm

Hoskins and Ulloa go into the game looking for their first league goals for Albion in 2012-13

7:10pm

The team team tonight includes just five players who started the 1-1 draw at Blackburn three weeks ago

7:08pm

Exciting line-up for Albion. Will Buckley play in a hole behind the front two as Andy Naylor suggested in The Argus today or will he fill his normal role out wide? Whatever happens, the team is a positive statement from Gus Poyet

7:07pm

So DJ Campbell makes his first start for Blackburn who have a twin threat down the left in the shape of Markus and Martin Olsson

7:03pm

Blackburn:  Kean; Orr, Dann, Hanley, Martin Olsson; Kazim-Richards, Lowe, Murphy, Markus Olsson; Rhodes, Campbell. Subs: Givet, Pedersen, Williamson, Nuno Gomes, Morris, Goodwillie, Usai.

6:53pm

Albion team: Kuszczak, Bruno, El-Abd, Upson, Bridge; Bridcutt, Vicente, Hammond, Buckley; Ulloa, Hoskins. Sub: Ankergren, Calderon, Dicker, Orlandi, David, LuaLua, Mackail-Smith

6:52pm

Vicente, Buckley and Hoskins start tonight in place of David, Orlandi and CMS

6:39pm

6:38pm

 

6:36pm

Good evening and welcome from The Amex where Albion are hoping to make it back-to-back wins. As well as this live blog (which I remind you is subject to a three-minute delay when the match is in play) I will also be tweeting goal news as it happens @HowardGriggs

Fancy Derby to nick a point tonight. Leeds could take all three and of course, we will win a hard fought game.

Derby didn't do much in the transfer window and don't look like doing any in the loan window but almost without notice, they have found some form.

Middlesbrough seem to be hitting a bad patch, Leeds remain pretty consistent, fanc them tonight.

Wow. Didn't see that coming. So much for Gus's comments about wanting to give CMS and Ulloa more time together. Harsh on CMS but opportunity knocks for Hoskins.

It would be good if the commentary on `Seagull player` let us know where the ball is instead of discussing `away long trips` etc..
