@holgmeister @CryerRovers crowd 18,500— @Rickdaynes 23 February 2013
Another great chance for Leeds but Varney scuffs at Keanfrom just 10 yards
Bentley volleys widly over the bar
@CryerRovers what's the crowd?— @holgmeister 23 February 2013
@CryerRovers think you should be at Bristol 5-1 lol— @Iaf11Ian 23 February 2013
McCormack cross headed just wide by Dann as Rovers still struggle to get their game going
Neil Warnock going nuts on the sideline. I think he's great fun. @CryerRovers not much of a fan.— @gchase1 23 February 2013
@CryerRovers Bristol City 4-0 up! Good result that for City fans— @MichaelHoratio 23 February 2013
Rhodes should score after through ball by Murphy but he curls just wide
@CryerRovers Jon Stead second 3-0— @mortgagecarl 23 February 2013
@gchase1 the secret footballer? More importantly is @CryerRovers wearing a daft hat again?— @cmckennasport 23 February 2013
Pedersen for Kazim Richards
@CryerRovers sounds poor and worrying that we are not get Rhodes or Dj involved...we are crying out for a creative midfielder.— @darrencoleman31 23 February 2013
Looks like Kazim-Richards is finished here. Knee seemed to give way
@CryerRovers every game is the same andy, do u av a twitter template that says half time, rovers not great? Appy needs to read the riot act!— @markmanson1982 23 February 2013
Leeds should be ahead. McCormack in loads of space through on goal but shoots wide. Let off
@CryerRovers midfield has been weak link all season, that's our problem area as our defence is solid and forwards can score— @mcollier007 23 February 2013
0-0. Rovers haven't been great going forward, with ;Leeds enjoying a lot of the ball
@CryerRovers what exactly does Murphy bring to this team?— @Brecks71 23 February 2013
Leeds are still the better team but not creating a great deal
Best chance of the game for Rovers so far. Kazim Richards shot saved by Kenny
@JoeAinscoughVB @CryerRovers sounds like rhodes is getting a little better supply today with two wingers playing????— @BRFC666 23 February 2013
Jordan Rhodes volleys over bar after ball from Orr
Varney drags a shot wide
Looks like more of a 4-4-2 but with Kaz pushing at every opportunity
@CryerRovers not sure about 433— @elliottrib 23 February 2013
@CryerRovers bolton are 3-0 up— @JonBetts923 23 February 2013
@CryerRovers murphy and Lowe dropping deep allowing Bentley and kaz attack— @pokermaniac2012 23 February 2013
Leeds on top early on, Rovers need to wake up— @CryerRovers 23 February 2013
@CryerRovers I thought I had an eye problem too trying to read that ;-)— @Stubbs 23 February 2013
Another good chance for Leeds. McCormack corner finds Lees unmarked but from close range his flick is held by Kean on the line
Leeds made a good start here, Rovers second to everything early on
Good chance for Leeds but McCormack's shot blocked by Hanley
Looks as though Rovers are playing 4-3-3 with Kaz and Rhodes either side of DJ
Game underway with Rovers kicking towards a vocal away end
@CryerRovers Rekik in the middle, Morris or Olsson LB— @RoversSkeat 23 February 2013
@CryerRovers if you changed Orr and Rekik with Henley and Martin olsson(when fit) that's prob our best 11— @reginaldlongman 23 February 2013
Interesting no centre back on bench with Givet not in squad. I guess Rekik could cover across though— @CryerRovers 23 February 2013
DAVID Bentley makes his first Blackburn Rovers start since returningh from Spurs on loan.
The midfielder is expected to replace Lee Williamson on the right, with DJ Campbell returning to the starting line-up in attack with Jordan Rhodes.
Colin Kazim-Richards is expected to start on the left in place of Martin Olsson, who is a late withdrawal after being hit in the eye by a ball yesterday.
Manchester City loanee Karim Rekik will start in his more natural left back slot, after featuring in midfield in the midweek defeat at Hull.
