  • Late drama again! Williamson, on for only 2 minutes, is sent off. Danny Ings raced through on goal with Williamson the last man, and the sub blatantly fouls him. Necessary, but a definite red.

  • More successive corners for Rovers as they eye a last-gasp winner.

  • Corry Evans' day is ended as Lee Williamson takes his place.

  • GOAL! Terrible back-pass leaves Burnley in dire straits as Rhodes chases onto it. There's an element of luck as the defender's attempted clearance bounces off his shin as he cuts back, but he'll certainly take it!

  • Ben Mee is booked now as Burnley try and hold off the Blackburn onslaught.

  • Alan Judge and Chris Taylor replace Jason Lowe and Ben Masrhall for Rovers

  • GOAL! The breakthrough! And it's the sub Stanislas. A great strike from the youngster opens the scoring. Huge goal!

  • On comes Junior Stanislas for Michael Kightly.

  • Five successive corners for Rovers eventually results in nothing, but Henley should've made it 1-0.

  • A couple of corners for Rovers as Burnley look a little shaky.

  • Duff follows him soon after following a 50/50 clash with Henley. Rhodes was clean through too, but no advantage given.

  • Burnley midfielder Marney is next into the book for a foul on Dann.

  • A flare is let off in the stands by Burnley fans. This game could do with a similar spark!

  • Some great defending from Dann stops Vokes in his tracks as Burnley look to bounce back.

  • Another quick counter attack from Rovers as King tees up Marshall, but his effort is tame and blocked.

  • Bright start to Rovers' second half as Rhodes manages to find plenty of space and passes to King, but the striker takes too long trying to get a shot away.

  • That's it for the first-half then, and it's been a predictable derby. Plenty of tackles have flown in, while both sides have had opportunities to break the deadlock. Burnley have perhaps had the better of the half, but what do you think? Let me know via Twitter at @MattStead91 or by e-mail at Matthew.Stead@bskyb.com.

  • Ings has certainly been lively for Burnley and is allowed time to shoot. His curler is just wide.

  • Jason Lowe makes it into the referee's book first, a poor tackle from behind.

  • Rovers break quickly and nearly grab an opener. Cairney receives the ball on the break and has King to his left, but he opts for the shot which is very well saved.
