Last updated: Saturday, 04 December, 2021, 16:53

Full Time: Blackburn 1-0 PNE

North End narrowly lose out to a Ben Brereton Diaz goal.

PNE had the better of the game in the first half and Ched Evans’ close range effort from a well worked corner was their best chance of it.

Rovers stepped it up in the second half and a cross from Reda Khadra was glanced into the far post by Brereton Diaz.

North End fought to try and find a way back into the gane but the home side held out.

There will be five more minutes added onto the end of the second half.

Iversen makes an important save

Brereton Diaz gets in down the left side and looks to find the far corner but Iversen palms the ball away, Earl’s clearance is as far as Travis but his effort is off target.

Joe Rothwell is replaced by Tayo Edun.

Ched Evans is booked for his protests after Earl’s cross strikes a hand but the referee waves away appeals.

Matthew Olosunde is replaced by Ryan Ledson - Alan Browne will fill in at right back.

PNE have switched to a 4-3-3 now, with Sinclair to the left and Emil Riis to the right of Ched Evans.

Daniel Johnson and Scott Sinclair take the place of Greg Cunningham and Ali McCann.

Reda Khadra is replaced by Tyrhys Dolan.

Travis is booked for delaying the restart.
