FULL TIME: Blackburn Rovers 1 Hull City 0
10:54pm Wednesday 22nd August 2012 in Blackburn Rovers match reports
COLIN Kazim-Richards' goal gave Blackburn Rovers victory over Hull City tonight.
The Turkish international followed up his goal at Ipswich on Saturday with the winner in the 77th minute at Ewood Park.
The match was watched by a crowd of 13,562 – Rovers’ lowest attendance for a league game for almost 20 years – with co-owners Venkatesh and Balaji Rao in the stands.
Kazim-Richards found the side netting early on but Paul Robinson had to parry from Nick Proschwitz at the other end, with Abdoulaye Faye heading over.
Rovers substitute Bruno Ribeiro saw his effort saved by Ben Amos after the interval before the breakthrough arrived.
Nuno Gomes did well to take a cross on his chest and his shot was charged down, with Kazim-Richards on hand to fire home after a scramble.
Rovers: Paul Robinson, Bradley Orr, Scott Dann, Gael Givet, Marcus Olsson, Jason Lowe, Dickson Etuhu, Danny Murphy, Fabio Nunes (Nuno Gomes 62), David Dunn (Bruno Ribeiro 62), Colin Kazim-Richards (Morten Gamst Pedersen 85). Subs not used: Jake Kean, Grant Hanley, Paulo Jorge, Edinho.
