Half-Time Report: Blackburn Rovers, Wolverhampton Wanderers playing out stalemate

Playoff hopefuls Blackburn and Wolves play out a goalless opening 45 minutes in their Championship clash at Ewood Park.

Blackburn Rovers and playoff rivals Wolverhampton Wanderers are level at 0-0 at half-time of this afternoon's Championship clash at Ewood Park.

The hosts began brightly and had a chance on goal within the first five minutes as Ben Marshall tried his luck from 25 yards, but the ball flew wide.

Moments later, Lee Williamson gave the ball away to Nouha Dicko, who marauded into the Rovers box, but Jason Steele was able to save at the near post.

Blackburn continued to threaten, with Chris Taylor and Jordan Rhodes registering decent chances, but they were nearly undone through poor defending again when Dicko seized on Tom Cairney's poor pass before forcing a save.

The game opened up towards the break as Rhodes was forced to make a goalline clearance from Danny Batth's header, but that was as close as either side came to breaking the first-half deadlock.
