Enable automatic updates every 30 seconds? YES NO
- Venky's arrive to jeers
- Appleton keeps same side that drew with Wolves
- Rovers unbeaten in four matches
- Anuradha Desai makes just her second visit to Ewood
Olsson blazes over and that will be that. Rovers deserve nothing more though

Why is it we cant defend or provide the ammo for rhodes time after time ?
@CryerRovers they don't want to get stuck in post match traffic!— @KatherineHeyes 19 January 2013
@CryerRovers ive already seen "Appleton out!" When are people gonna realise it #VenkysOut !!!!!!!— @rosshbrovers 19 January 2013

The new manager always says we have a talented squad, there may be some players with skill. but we are weak and we are slow. We have the weakest midfield in the division.
Appelton, if he is any good, should realise quickly that he has to add some power and strength to a weak team. No chance of promotion this season and we will never hang on to Jordan Rhodes for next season, without him we would be bottom of the league.
@CryerRovers it luks like we shud av kept Gary bowyer in charge— @shaggy1jacki1 19 January 2013

forgot to say the clarets are 2-0 up
4:34pm Sat 19 Jan 13
venkys went when it was 2-1 they new appleton was doing a the job they are paying him for relegation lol
@CryerRovers they really do need to start seeing a game out. Shebby said he would take thoughts if fans to them and that was one point.— @bluerover77 19 January 2013
Gomes on for Rochina
Not much to report at the moment. Charlton happy defending and Rovers doing very very little

Well done Venky's you just could not stand that things were going well for once could you!!! You are complete inept morons and destroying our club.
3 back to back wins for the first time in god knows how long and you have to interfere, didn't it occur to you that a change had come about in the players!!
Why don't you just disappear back down the drain you crawled out of? I personally will never accept you no matter what you do now and I am sure that not many fans will either. TRASH!!!!
As for Appleton keep taking the money pal another one on the gravy train!!!!!
@SarahJGoldsack @cryerrovers to be fair....we aren't the best today...thinking of leaving early myself!! /-O— @northernnutbev 19 January 2013
@cryerrovers assuming Venky's leaving? Rumoured they were only staying for 1st half and it was followed by 1 Jack W— @RME105 19 January 2013
@CryerRovers they are probably feeling a bit cold. Poor things!— @saahilbhojwani 19 January 2013
Pedersen replaces Vukcevic
Venky's have apparently left
@CryerRovers costing me £420 rovers not winning!— @mnorcross84 19 January 2013
GOAL Charlton 2-1. Evina cross from right and Yann Kermorgant leaps to head home.
Rochina flashes a dangerous shot across goal, it is cleared
@CryerRovers He scores when he wants. ^-^— @maldarko 19 January 2013

A Darener says
What would we do without Jordan?
Charlton should be 2-1 ahead but Dale Stephens misses a sitter with Kean out of goal
GOAL 1-1. Brilliant diving header from Rhodes from Kazim Richards' cross.
@RoversNumber9 @cryerrovers ..agree mate and this is why I said this week to @roversfanben that we don't need anymore pampered PL has-beens!— @mani13963 19 January 2013
If @blackburnrovers can't play for a new manager they might as well give up @CryerRovers @AndyBayes @Blackburnjack @glen9mullan #BRFC— @LancsKR 19 January 2013
@RoversNumber9 @cryerrovers ..too many of them are happy to produce average perfs in the champ on PL wages! No desire = no chance! #fact— @mani13963 19 January 2013
Second half underway and Rhodes goes close
Half time 1-0 Charlton and they deserve it
@kevingallacher8 @CryerRovers no passion, something needs to be seriously sorted here!— @Kris_James84 19 January 2013

Here we go again!
3:40pm Sat 19 Jan 13
6 and 7 are brilliant numbers thats 6 points and 7 place lmfao
@CryerRovers we playing that bad andy wish i could still go to games in south yorkshire now :( as well as funds— @llamamaster88 19 January 2013
@CryerRovers the owners are a disgrace. The players should take a long hard look at themselves if they can't get on with their jobs!— @Blackburn85 19 January 2013
I have to say at the moment, Charlton are head and shoulders the better team
@CryerRovers like I've said before rovers fans, it's not the managers it's the owners #foundations— @grrrzie17 19 January 2013
@CryerRovers almost like players font like appointment so cant be bothered— @roverpaul82 19 January 2013
@CryerRovers typical rovers— @WarrenWarren126 19 January 2013
@Marrowman1875 @CryerRovers has the apple fallen far from the tree?— @Goldcan99 19 January 2013
@cryerrovers Come on Ewood, get vocal and make the Venkys think twice about owning our club!!— @tommo8 19 January 2013
Charlton should be 2-0 up. Kean saves from Jackson well and Lawrie Wilson's effort on rebound is cleared off line by Olsson. Charlton well on top
GOAL Charlton. Brilliant finish from Dale Stephens, after Solly had lost Kazim-Richards down the right.
Kazim heads straight at keeper from Rochina's corner - good chance
@CryerRovers rumours Dawson for Barnsley has broken his leg.. Rovers supposed to be after him, yeh?— @antcapps 19 January 2013
Ewood resembling something of a ghost ship at the moment. Charlton playing neat football without lookink dangerous
@discopants79 @CryerRovers sounds quiet on radio...bit of a muted "we want venkys out" so far. Apparently not in directors box yet— @darwen_dave 19 January 2013
@CryerRovers is there many on andrew?— @brfcbarry 19 January 2013
Rochina looking dangerous but needs to learn when to pass
3:02pm Sat 19 Jan 13
Shame on the Crowd!!!! Its time they learnt manners!!!
Rochina runs half the length of the pitch but eventually gets crowded out as he nears the goal. Slow start from Rovers
RT @CryerRovers: venky's cant like each others music. Just pitched up in five different cars - got the reception expected— @KyleWestwell1 19 January 2013
@CryerRovers only enough room for one EGO in each car— @jamierover84 19 January 2013
Game under way here. 'Venky's out' sung by some and 'one Jack Walker' heard too

MICHAEL Appleton has stuck with the same side who drew with Wolves last time out, for his first match as Rovers boss.
Josh King is still out with a hamstring injury, so Appleton keeps faith with the side Gary Bowyer picked.
The match will be watched by club owners Venky's, who were greeted by jeers from outside.
ROVERS: Kean, Olsson, Dann, Hanley, Kane, Murphy, Lowe, Vukcevic, Rochina, Kazim-Richards, Rhodes
SUBS: Usai, Givet, Pedersen, Morris, Goodwillie, Rosado, Gomes
CHARLTON: Ben Hamer, Cedric Evina, Johnnie Jackson, Michael Morrison, Matt Taylor, Dale Stephens, Scott Wagstaff, Bradley Pritchard, Yann Kermorgant, Chris Solly, Lawrie Wilson
SUBS: David Button, Danny Green, Bradley Wright-Phillips, Rhys Wiggins, Ricardo Fuller, Callum Harriott, Dorian Dervite-Vaussoue
