  • Blackburn Rovers 3-0 Bolton: Kalinic scores

    Nikola Kalinic gave Rovers the lead their first-half dominance merited three minutes before the interval.

    And substitute Jason Roberts and defender Gael Givet struck in the second half to ensure Bolton, who threatened only sporadically, remain in the relegation zone - to the glee of a 23,888 crowd at Ewood Park.

    Rovers took a half-time lead when excellent work from El-Hadji Diouf kept a breakaway move going and Morten Gamst Pedersen squared unselfishly for Kalinic to rifle home.

    Steven Nzonzi's towering header from a Pedersen corner forced Jussi Jaaskelainen into a superb save but it was only a temporary reprieve for Bolton.

    Pedersen's second flag-kick was not convincingly cleared and Givet hooked it back into the box for Roberts to finish tamely through the hands of the keeper.

    Rovers were able to add a third with six minutes remaining when Diouf's free-kick was headed in by Givet for the Frenchman's first goal at Ewood Park.
