Goals from Jordan Rhodes and Scott Dann have put Blackburn Rovers in control at the break against Derby County.

The home side got off to the perfect start, when Rhodes sent Frank Fielding the wrong way from the spot having won the decision himself.

It took a while for the game's next opportunity to unfold, but Rhodes's volley was comfortably saved by Fielding following Colin Kazim-Richards's chest-down in the 23rd minute.

Rovers keeper Grzegorz Sandomierski was forced into a stunning save on the half-hour mark, when Jamie Ward found Chris Martin with a free kick, but the former's header was stopped at the near-post.

However, the hosts doubled their lead on the stroke of half time, when Dann headed in from a corner by David Jones.
