One change for Blackburn; Tugay dropped, Thompson on the right, Dunn to the middle of midfield.
0-0 at the half.
One save early on Maccarone.
Blackburn lose 1-0, on an injury time Job goal.
God I hate losing to 'Boro, the brave team which, a few years ago, didn't show up for a fixture against Blackburn because they had 'too many players injured or missing.'
It got them relegated didn't it?
Arguably. The points they got deducted for failing to show up got balanced out by the fact that they won the re-arranged game when it was played near the end of the season. Had they played the game when it was orginally scheduled, it's very likely they'd have lost anyway as their form at that point in the season was very poor.
