The Sunday Times: 'The visitors looked utterly bewildered, given their earlier chances; the more so within minutes of the restart when Hoilett left Russell Martin trailing on the left.'
The People: 'The Darwen End was decked out in yellow and green, yet the Blackburn fans were singing like canaries – their vitriolic chirps directed at Kean and the club's Indian owners.'
