A Darener says

Deja vu?

9:24pm

82 mins: Rain falling now at Ewood. Corner to Rovers...

9:22pm

80 mins: 10 minutes left for Rovers to get something out of this game...

9:19pm

9:18pm

76 mins: Rovers have the ball in the net but it's ruled out for a foul on the keeper. Ewood Park faithful not happy...

9:16pm

Seen them given...

9:16pm

73 mins: Huge handball shout turned down as Josh King's cross appears to be blocked by a Scunthorpe arm. 0-1.

9:11pm

Just over twenty minutes left for Rovers to find a goal. Doesn't look likely at the moment... 0-1.

9:09pm

67 mins: McAllister tries a shot from the edge of the area. Saved by Kean. 0-1.

9:07pm

...headed clear. 0-1.

9:06pm

...and the corner is headed over by Gestede. 0-1.

9:05pm

63 mins: Henley's cross almost outfoxes the Scunthorpe keeper. Corner...

9:04pm

What have Rovers got left for the last 30 minutes?

9:04pm

...free-kick comes to nothing. 0-1.

9:03pm

DOUBLE CHANGE FOR ROVERS: Gestede and Conway replace Dunn and Marshall.

9:02pm

60 mins: Dangerous free-kick for Scunthorpe.

9:02pm

Scunthorpe fans finding their voices in the away end. Rovers lacking ideas at the moment. 0-1.

9:00pm

...straight to the keeper. 0-1.

9:00pm

58 mins: Free-kick to Rovers in a useful position...

8:59pm

Conway and Gestede warming up for Rovers. Is it nearly time?

8:56pm

54 mins: Back to his feet gingerly. He should be able to continue...

8:56pm

53 mins: Niall Canavan is down in the Rovers area - not looking too good for the Scunthorpe man. 0-1.

8:54pm

51 mins: Appeals for a Rovers penalty as Songo'o is held back as the ball comes in. Referee not interested. 0-1.

8:52pm

8:51pm

Today's attendance: 5,352.

8:47pm

And Scunthorpe get us underway again... 0-1.

8:46pm

So - 45 minutes for Blackburn Rovers to keep themselves in the League Cup. No changes at half-time by Bowyer but you would imagine the big guns may appear if the score doesn't change...

8:45pm

Oh - here they are...

8:45pm

Rovers players back out for the second half. Scunthorpe yet to re-appear.

8:42pm

8:41pm

8:41pm

So - how long should Bowyer wait before throwing on the likes of Rhodes and Gestede if the score remains the same? Or would you rather they stay fresh for Saturday's Blackpool clash?

8:39pm

Just found out Indian cricket legend Sunil Gavaskar attended the Cardiff game on Friday. Venky's bringing in the stars...

Lancashire Telegraph: Sunil Gavaskar displays his wrist control and timing

8:33pm

HALF TIME: Scunthorpe deserve their first-half lead which came courtesy of a well-placed Neal Bishop header. Rovers will have to improve in the second half if they wish to progress to the second round...

8:31pm

45 mins: 1 minute of added time in the first half here at Ewood... 0-1.

8:29pm

42 mins: That's more like it! Ben Marshall does his best to manufacture a chance but his shot is easily saved. 0-1.

8:27pm

40 mins: Josh King is looking like Rovers' most dangerous player at the moment but he's not getting enough of the ball. Scunthorpe really have been impressive... 0-1.

8:24pm

38 mins: Chris Taylor almost turns the ball into his own net. Another corner. This time free-kick awarded to Rovers. A breather...

8:23pm

37 mins: 8 minutes to half-time - Scunthorpe with another corner...

8:23pm

36 mins: Corner to Scunthorpe cleared away for another.

8:21pm

Can't really say Scunthorpe didn't deserve that goal. Rovers looking a little lethargic in this first half...

8:20pm

34 mins: Bishop finds too much space in the area from the resulting corner and heads home to put Scunthorpe ahead. 0-1.

8:19pm

GOAL TO SCUNTHORPE!

8:19pm

33 mins: Corner to Scunthorpe as Myrie-Williams' cross is turned away

8:19pm

32 mins: McAllister fires over from the edge of the Rovers box. The League One side giving as much as they get here - if not more...

8:17pm

Rhodes now warming up alongside Cairney. Will Rovers need their main men this evening? Scunthorpe growing in confidence...

8:17pm

30 mins: Rovers living a little dangerously. Lyle Taylor the latest to come close for Scunthorpe. Saved by Kean. 0-0.

8:16pm

Conway and Baptiste get a good reception from the Ewood faithful as they warm up below us...

8:14pm

Rovers may have been lucky there. Looked to have been some contact. 0-0.

8:13pm

25 mins: Bishop goes down easily in the Rovers box. Referee not interested. Free-kick Rovers...

8:12pm

8:08pm

21 mins: The free-kick comes to nothing as Lowe's long-range strike is blocked.. 0-0.

8:06pm

20 mins: Varney brought down on the edge of the box. Dangerous free-kick for Rovers...

8:06pm

19 mins: Marshall with the latest shot from range. Way wide... 0-0.

8:04pm

18 mins: CLOSE! Madden waltzes into the Rovers area but a sharp stop from Kean denies him. 0-0.

8:03pm

17 mins: Rovers limited to shots from distance at the moment. King's latest effort firing back off a defender's head. 0-0.

8:00pm

15 minutes gone in the first half - Dunn with easily the best chance so far. 0-0.

7:58pm

12 mins: Rovers clear but Scunthorpe back in possession..

7:58pm

10 mins: Corner cleared. Scunthorpe break up the other end and Myrie-Williams' low cross turned away for a corner.

7:57pm

10 mins: Corner to Rovers..

7:56pm

7:55pm

8 mins: Scunthorpe win a corner but the opportunity is wasted as the ball goes harmlessly out of play...

7:54pm

7 mins: Bowyer patrolling the touchline barking out orders. 0-0.

7:52pm

Gary McSheffrey bears down on the Rovers goal but his shot high and wide of Kean's goal. 0-0.

7:50pm

Williamson with a crunching challenge in midfield. Throw-in Rovers..

7:49pm

Cagey opening 4 minutes. Rovers looking assured on the ball. 0-0.

7:47pm

HUGE CHANCE! Josh King jinxes his way into the Scunthorpe area with ease and tees up Dunn who puts it wide. Good start from Rovers...

7:45pm

Rovers get the game underway!

7:43pm

Some noise coming from the Scunthorpe end. Lovely evening for football...

7:43pm

Players are out - warm reception from a decent Ewood crowd.

7:34pm

While you wait - you may have seen the good news that Gary Bowyer has been given permission to sign a new player by Venky's. Where do Rovers need to improve? Defence?

7:32pm

Approaching kick-off here at Ewood. Just over ten minutes to go...

7:28pm

Do Rovers fans fancy a little cup run? Or is it total focus on the league?

7:26pm

Well GB lets get our first win then we can commence a winning philosophy instead of the much over valued undefeated run of draws.

7:23pm

Just over 20 minutes until kick-off. Score predictions?

I'm going for a 2-0 Rovers win...

7:22pm

Welcome to Ewood Park!

Rovers will be looking to continue their good start to the season with a win against Scunthorpe tonight. A number of familiar faces in the side as well as a Rovers debut for young Jack O'Connell...

Rather glad that I stayed on the bench at home.
With travelling expenses it would have cost me, as a senior citizen, quite a lump to attend a 'reserve team' match.

I've given bowyer time and support but this is the final straw. Winning breeds confidence, his strongest 11 need games together and he goes and makes 10 changes and upsets any rhythm. He's done a job bringing stability but needs to step aside.
