BLACKBURN Rovers have made once change for tonight’s Championship clash at Norwich City.

Lee Williamson has been brought back into the side at the expense of Josh King who drops to the bench.

Williamson’s recall means Tom Cairney will switch from the centre to the right of midfield.

Rovers are on a 14-match league run stretching back to March 12.

They drew their opening game of the campaign 1-1 at home to Cardiff City, who like Norwich have come down from the Premier League, before winning 2-1 at Blackpool on Saturday.

On the same afternoon the Canaries picked up their first three points of the campaign with a 3-0 home success over Watford.

Norwich, who are unchanged this evening, opened their season with a 1-0 defeat at Wolves.

Norwich: Ruddy, Whittaker, Martin, Turner, Garrido, Tettey, Johnson, Redmond, Hoolahan, Lafferty, Grabban. Subs: Rudd, Loza, E Bennett, Josh Murphy, R Bennett, O'Neil, Surman.

Rovers: Robinson, Lowe, Baptiste, Hanley, Olsson, Cairney, Evans, Williamson, Conway, Rhodes, Gestede. Subs: Eastwood, Henley, King, Dunn, Marshall, Taylor, Varney.

This is the price you pay for being negative, Gestede has spent more time in our half than in Norwich's. And I agree with cboyer, Williamson is alright.

Say what you like, so negative as soon as we went 1 nil up I went straight to bet365 to put 20 quid on us to lose, I would of loved to have lost that bet!!!!! We scored far to early, I knew bowyer would go in to defensive mood to try and hang on!!! Soo predictable. Far to much respect shown to an average team.
