Thanks for joining me tonight. Analysis and reaction in The Argus tomorrow
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.
FT Albion 1 Blackburn 1. Kazenga LuaLua fired inches wide from 20 yards in stoppage time, then Orlandi had an effort blocked
Albion still pressing without any major chances
Vicente has been amed MoM. It couldn't be anyone else tonight
Vicente is just an artist. He had five players trying to stop him as he burst into the area with fancy footwork
LuaLua on for Buckley
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
Murphy booked for bad challenge on Bridcutt. Blackburn had three other players booked in the penalty incident
Markus Olsson handles a cross, the linesman gives the penalty and VICENTE drives it down the middle 1-1
Blackburn appeal for a penalty when a Rhodes shot hits El-Abd's hand but little he could do about it
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
Second half is under way ...
Albion on their way back out. Interesting that Orlandi came on for Hoskins not CMS

Hard to comprehend Albion are behind here. Nine decent chances in the half and Blackburn score from their only shot on target
HT Albion 0 Blackurn 1
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.
Orlandi is on for the injured Hoskins who departs on a stretcher
Hoskins is down injured ...
Campbell heads over the bar for Blackburn who are trying to slo the game down as much as they can
It's gone a lttle flat since the goal. Albion need to pick it up again because they were playing so well
Just before the goal Buckley diverted a Hammond shot on to the bar before Kean got it clear
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
Blackburn take the lead against the run of play as Scott DANN heads a Danny Murphy corner into the far corner of the net
Michael Appleton is looking frustrated. His side are chasing shadows
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
Far post header from Ulloa is blocked with a shout of handball at the same time but nothing given
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
Vicente, having tested his range a minute earlier, lets flies from 22 yards and the ball zooms past the upright
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
The match is under way ...
Bridcutt obviously captain again
Players are on their way out ...
Hoskins' attitude was good in the dev squad on a foul night at Lancing recently. Different to a year ago. Prepared to stay and fight. #bhafc— @AndyNaylorArgus 12 February 2013
This will be Vicente's first competitive start at The Amex since the 1-1 draw with Birmingham last April
Hoskins and Ulloa go into the game looking for their first league goals for Albion in 2012-13
The team team tonight includes just five players who started the 1-1 draw at Blackburn three weeks ago
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
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
Blackburn: Kean; Orr, Dann, Hanley, Martin Olsson; Kazim-Richards, Lowe, Murphy, Markus Olsson; Rhodes, Campbell. Subs: Givet, Pedersen, Williamson, Nuno Gomes, Morris, Goodwillie, Usai.
Albion team: Kuszczak, Bruno, El-Abd, Upson, Bridge; Bridcutt, Vicente, Hammond, Buckley; Ulloa, Hoskins. Sub: Ankergren, Calderon, Dicker, Orlandi, David, LuaLua, Mackail-Smith
Vicente, Buckley and Hoskins start tonight in place of David, Orlandi and CMS

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
