Robinson does well to tip Hayden Mullins' shot over bar on a rare Birningham break

4:34pm

Fabio Nunes on for Markus Olsson

4:32pm

David Murphy weak shot, easy for Paul Robinson.

Rochina looks class

 

3:39pm

Zigic now has a goal disallowed for offside Robbo saves Ravel Morrison's strike

3:38pm

Rovers might only be drawing but a massive difference from most of the season. Berg has them chasing every ball and passing the ball much quicker.

3:36pm

Rhodes has ball in the net by flag raised for offside in the build up

3:32pm

Murphy just wide from distance. A much improved display so far from the former Fulham midfielder

3:28pm

You get the feeling Rochina has the potential to be a real crowd pleaser here at Ewood. Fans love him and, playing in the right position at last, can be a real assetLancashire Telegraph: ABILITY Ruben Rochina

Rovers have been all over Brum, but the lack of a left back has proved costly yet again

Goal Birmingham 1-1. Burke's cross hits Dann falls into Zigic's path, he miskicks and Marlon King on hand to tap home

3:16pm

GOAL. Rovers 1-0. Rochina coolly slots home from the penalty spot after Formica was fouled by David Murphy. Great start from Rovers

3:12pm

Rochina drags a shot wide after Markus Olsson's low cross is half cleared to him. Good initial ball by Martin Olsson

...and so much for them coming on here, bigging their man Berg up and looking forward to a 20,000 crowd.
.
That's 3 points out of a possible 33 for Berg as a manager. No doubt the "consortium" (and their numerous bogus accounts) will be back on here shortly to urge more time for their man (OUR SAVIOUR - HENNING BERG!!) while collecting their share of Jack's legacy....

Actually got to see most of the game. Wow, what an improvement. I actually enjoyed it and was entertained. Really unlucky not to win. Henning doing a good job I think.

How come the fans of Anzhi Makhachkala took THREE TIMES as many fans to Anfield when they are almost 2,000 miles away than the face-combing soap-dodgers from Ewok when Blackburnistan is about thirty miles away? Face facts; those of you who'd defend them might WANT a decent support, but you haven't got one. It's dismal and tragic and your fleeting days of glory are behind you now so you'd better get used to it. Maybe one season in the Premiership over the next decade will be a giddying height for you now.
