Fulham play out goalless first half with Blackburn Rovers as Shaun Hutchinson is sent off at Craven Cottage.

Shaun Hutchinson was sent off in the dying embers of the half as rock-bottom Fulham played out a goalless first period with Blackburn Rovers in the Championship.

The defender was given his marching orders late on after a poorly timed tackle as Kit Symons takes charge of his first match as caretaker boss following Felix Magath's sacking earlier this week.

Bryan Ruiz, who has been recalled to the side by Symons, was pulling the strings in midfield for the home side, but it was Rovers who had the better of the chances.

Ben Marshall, who has scored three goals in his last two games, hit a left-footed effort wide before Jordan Rhodes missed with a header after 20 minutes.

Rudy Gestede saw a shot saved shortly after the half-hour mark before Hugo Rodallega fired wide when well placed.
