Man City v Blackburn Sa16

Published Add your comment

Paul Robinson kept Manchester City at bay and left Roberto Mancini's ambitious side having to settle for a 1-1 draw against Blackburn at Eastlands.

Having retired from England duty the goalkeeper is intent on doing his best for Blackburn and he showed Fabio Capello what he is missing after making a string of superb saves.

The only time he was beaten was in the 55th minute when Patrick Vieira equalised for City after Nikola Kalinic had opened the scoring.
