  • Blackburn 2-2 Sunderland: Bent's second half double

    El-Hadji Diouf clambered off the bench to salvage a point for Blackburn, but the home side were a fingertip away from claiming all three.

    Darren Bent's second half double looked likely to earn Steve Bruce's men a rare win but Rovers clawed back first through Morten Gamst Pedersen then Diouf.

    Then in a grandstand finish which bore little resemblance to the dismal fare on offer in the first period, Marton Fulop brilliantly parried a point-blank header from Nikola Kalinic - before Chris Samba poked the rebound wide.

    The bare statistics will point to Rovers extending their winless run to eight games, while Bruce's injury-hit Sunderland can now number just one win from 11.

    And in the 77th minute Allardyce's brave move paid off when Diouf got on the end of a cross by former Sunderland team-mate Pascal Chimbonda to head home the equaliser.

    Rovers should have snatched victory in the dying seconds when Kalinic's header from a Pedersen free-kick was brilliantly saved by Fulop, with Samba failing dismally to convert the rebound.
