BLACKBURN Rovers reporter Paul Wheelock gives his player ratings for the 2-1 home loss to Burnley.

Paul Robinson 6: Made a superb save from Danny Ings but could not stop Jason Shackell from bringing Burnley level.

Adam Henley 5: Targeted by the Clarets, the young right-back struggled to get to grips with winger Scott Arfield.

Grant Hanley 7: After recovering from a calf strain, the captain produced a courageous display in the heart of his defence.

Michael Keane 7: The on loan centre-back, watched by Manchester United manager David Moyes, made an assured debut.

Tommy Spurr 5: The left-back could not prevent Scott Wallace from crossing for Danny Ings to score Burnley’s winner.

Corry Evans 6: Making his first start in more than five months, the fit-again midfielder was a welcome addition.

Jason Lowe 7: Set up Jordan Rhodes’ goal and had an effort cleared off the line and saw another superbly saved.

David Dunn 7: Rovers were lifted by their talisman’s presence and it was no coincidence that they lost the game after he went off.

Craig Conway 6: Apart from a horror back pass which Ings did not punish, the winger had a good derby debut.

Luke Varney 6: Home debutant worked tirelessly up against highly-rated Clarets right-back Kieran Trippier.

Jordan Rhodes 8: Back to his best and on the scoresheet, he should have capped an impressive performance with a second goal.
