BLACKBURN Rovers reporter Paul Wheelock gives his ratings for last night's 5-0 FA Cup defeat at Manchester City. Do you agree with his ratings? Have your say using the comment facility below. Paul Wheelock's ratings:
Paul Robinson 6: Barely had a save to make in first half. So cruel to concede before the break and exit at half-time.
Adam Henley 6: First-half tackles inspired a couple of breaks, organised well, but beaten by Aleksandar Kolarov’s killer ball.
Matt Kilgallon 6: Had a tough task against world-class strikers. Offered a threat at set-pieces.
Grant Hanley 6: Just could not get a good enough connection to prevent from Alvaro Negredo scoring his second.
Tommy Spurr 6: Grew into the game but might have done more to stop cross for first goal.
Ben Marshall 7: Wasn't scared to get forward and take City on but tracked back well too.
Lee Williamson 6: Closed down consistently to force mistakes and make interceptions.
Jason Lowe 7: Grafted and gave a good account of himself with and against the ball. Covered well.
Chris Taylor 7: Worked hard off the front and skewed one long-range effort wide.
Tom Cairney 8: Rovers’ best performer, the midfielder did not look out of place against illustrious opponents.
DJ Campbell 5: Small chance of winning a header against Joleon Lescott. Outmuscled on the ground.
