Rovers held at home

Published Add your comment

Blackburn teenager Junior Hoilett spurned the best chance of a fairly tedious goalless draw against West Ham at Ewood Park.

The 19-year-old substitute's 20-yard chip over Robert Green in a one-on-one with the goalkeeper dropped onto the top of the net in the 77th minute.

Prior to that Carlton Cole had the visitors' best effort, curling wide a 20th-minute shot from a narrow angle while Rovers defender Chris Samba fired over from the edge of the penalty area in the first half.
