George Boateng with a controversial red card

A single Martin Olsson goal prove enough for Blackburn to beat ten-man Hull, who now sit just one point outside the relegation zone.
The only goal came after just 16 minutes, when Olsson advanced into the area and despite losing his balance fired goalwards from the tightest of angles. His effort appeared to be heading across goal as it hit Myhill on the way through and into the far corner.

Just six minutes before the break, Hull's chances were dealt another blow as Saturday's goal hero George Boateng was shown the red card by referee Lee Probert. The midfielder appeared to catch Pedersen with his arm, but whether it was deliberate by the Hull man was debatable.

Blackburn made the extra man count for much of the second half, creating a number of decent openings, but Myhill was equal to Rovers' efforts. First Givet's point blank effort from six-yards out was well blocked by the Tigers keeper and then Emerton was set free by Diouf only to see Myhill save again.

The closest Hull came was a free-kick sent narrowly over by substitute Amir Zaki, but in truth Blackburn were comfortable and Phil Brown's men remain deep in trouble towards the foot of the table.
