Paul Robinson

Paul Ince took a lot of stick for his short-lived managerial reign at Ewood Park two summers ago – and rightly so – but one thing he deserves a lot of credit for is the signing of Robbo.

It was nigh on impossible to replace such a crowd favourite and Rovers stalwart as Brad Friedel but Robinson has shown this season he has the capability to hit those heights.

Highlight: Penalty shoot-out heroics in Carling Cup quarter final win over Chelsea in December. Robinson saved two penalties as Rovers battled into the semi final after a thrilling 3-3 draw.

Premier League record: Played 34 Won 11 Drawn 10 Lost 14 Against 50 Pts 43 Goals scored 0.

Jason Brown

Who would be a substitute goalkeeper?

The former Gillingham man has spent most of his Rovers career on the sidelines and this season has been no different – but he again came to the rescue when called upon.

Brown started three league games this season, a draw against Chelsea and wins over Birmingham and Burnley, but he was still demoted to the bench the moment Robinson returned.

Highlight: Brown had little to do in Rovers’ derby win over Burnley at Turf Moor but he would have enjoyed his moment in the limelight.

Premier League record: P 4 (including one sub appearance) W 2 D 1 L 1 A 5 Pts 7 Goals scored 0.
