Blackburn 0-0 Bolton: Honours even in lifeless Lancashire derby

first_img Blackburn vs Bolton Dorian Dervite was sent off for Bolton as the Trotters ground out a dull goalless draw against Blackburn in the Friday night Championship game.Dervite picked was shown two yellow cards in 10 minutes as he left Neil Lennon’s side down to 10 men during stoppage time.Bengali-Fode Kote saw his effort ruled out for offside as both sides saw their winless starts to the season continue.There was not much action of note during a lifeless first half as both teams struggled to carve out any chance of significance.Bolton thought they had won a penalty twice in the same move on 16 minutes as Mark Davies was brought down but unfortunately for the visitors, the referee did not agree.Kote thought he had secured Rovers’ first win of the season five minutes from time after turning in Jordan Rhodes’ swivelled shot but it was correctly ruled out for offside.Dervite then saw red in the 93rd minute for bringing down Kote in the corner. He had received his first after cynically brining down Rhodes as he looked to spring a counter attack.The draw leaves both teams languishing around the bottom of the table with three draws and two defeats from their opening five games. 1last_img
