FT: Swansea 3 Blackburn 0

FULL-TIME!!! The ref blows the whistle as Swansea take all three points against a woefull Blackburn

90
Sigurdsson has a chance from a free-kick but curls it into Robinson's clutches

88
Swansea are still playing it around as the Blackburn heads have dropped. Sigurdsson is only denied a tap-in as Lita's shot is collected by Robinson

85
SWANSEA SUB: Danny Graham goes off for Leroy Lita

82
Swansea are playing the ball around from defence to midfield and back to Vorm. They look to inject pace when the ball falls to Dyer. Sinclair get's his feet in a mess in the box and the ball bounces out for a goal-kick

79
Blackburn's only attacking play comes from a Pedersen throw. They manage a shot on target but Vorm collects

76
Taylor to Sinclair who has a pop at goal that flies just high of the bar. Far too easy

75
Dyer brings it forward but it carries out for a goal-kick.

75
The pattern of this game is Swansea playing it around with Blackburn sitting off and allowing Dyer and Swansea's other creative players to build an attack.

73
Blackburn seem to have got this one wrong. Absorbing pressure is all well and good f you can offer something in response. Rovers have been unable to contain a bright and creative Swansea side

70
SWANSEA SUB: Leon Britton goes off for Mark Gower

69
Swansea are lining up for shooting practice - the ball breaks to Graham after a strike from Sinclair is blocked. Graham's effort goes over but it could turn into a cricket score

66
WOODWORK RATTLED!! Dunn hits a sweet strike from outside the box - Vorm is beaten all ends up but it strikes the post and comes out - unlucky!

65
CHANCE!!! From a Pedersen corner David Dunn heads over from 6-yards. It seemed harder to miss as his glanced his chance but with too much on the ball it flies over the bar

63
GOAL!!!! Sinclair ambles forward jinxing into the box and the ball ends up in the net. Sigurdsson taps in after the run from Sinclair

61
BLACKBURN SUB: Steve Kean has taken off top-scorer Yakubu for David Goodwillie - the Rovers fans look confused

60
Blackburn have a little bit more of the ball but Swansea can close it down with the type of urgency that Rovers can't or won't show

58
Dyer again runs at the Blackburn defence who seem unable to contain the quick winger. It's all Swansea

55
BLACKBURN SUB: Radosav Petrovic on for Hoilett

55
Pedersen able to throw another ball into the box but Graham back defending gets it away. Dunn is causing problems in the box but adjudged to foul

53
It's so easy for Swansea - they are able to pass and move then create chances. It's like a training game - Blackburn need to press with some sense of urgency

51
BLACKBURN CHANCE!! The ball falls to David Dunn but the ball falls slightly behind him - the shot is weak and Vorn can collect it. Dunn will think he could have done better - how many chances are this Rovers team going to create

50
It's as you were as Swansea contine exactly as the first half. Blackburn sit right off allowing Swansea to build their play

48
Graham played the ball in across to the far post and Lowe puts it behind for a corner but could have just as easily netted an own goal. Williams shouts for a pen claiming he was held but the ref waves it away as Williams bundles it behind for a goal-kick

45
Blackburn get us underway and it looks as though Swansea are heading for Premier League football next year while Blackburn take another step towards the Championship

BLACKBURN SUB:Mauro Formica is on for the injured Grant Hanley

Harry Talbot is querying Steve Kean's selection asking "Why are David Dunn and Bradley Orr (who definitely arn't at their best) starting ahead of Petrovic and Martin Olsson????"

HALF-TIME CHAT Swansea have been by far the dominant team in the first half. Blackburn have no reponse to the Swans patient build-up play and varied attacking options in the final third. I do feel Rovers have a goal in them with the taget man Yakbu up front but going 3 down will kill this game off and Swansea have it in their locker to put this game to bed

HALF-TIME!! The free-kick comes to nothing and the ref blows for half-time

45
Blackburn will have to defend the free-kick with Hanley off the field

45
Hanley goes down in a challenge on Sigurdsson - he seeemed to twist his knee on the lunge. He looks to be in pain

42
GOAL!!! Dyer makes it two for the Swans as Swansea are allowed to play it around in the 6-yard box for Dyer to slice it into the net from close range. That was easy

42
Blackburn's tactic to allow Swansea to have the bulk of the play and hit them on the break is a risky one. They don't seem to be able to create anything on the ball and are sloppy

39
Nzonzi gives the ball away on the edge of the box straight to Danny Graham who tries to curl it low past Robinson but he manages to get a hand to it. That was sloppy play from Nzonzi

37
Swansea are pouring forward as Blackburn are on the ropes. The Swans seem to be able to snap into life in an instant

That was a lovely goal as Sigurdsson took one touch in the box to get it out of his feet - looked up and curled a shot past the diving Robinson - there was nothing he good do about that

35
GOAL!!!! Sigurdsson strikes a beauty from distance with a curling shot right into the top corner

35
CHANCE!!! Sigurdsson strikes a sweet shot from distance that dipped and swerved. Robinson gets it behind for a corner

33
Robinson thumps another ball forward as Dyer is caught offside. Swansea absorb the threat and come away with the ball

31
OUCH!!! Junior Hoilett lunged in on Neil Taylor and gets the first yellow of the game. It was rash but born more of frustration than anything - no complaints from the Rovers man

30
Swansea force their fifth corner. The ball falls to Williams who under pressure hits a shot goal-bound. Blackburn seem slow to close the ball down and Swansea have another two quick shots which are blocked.

29
Blackburn bring it forward as Hoilett tries to jinx through the Swansea back-line but hits a wall and the attack breaks down

26
Danny Graham heads it onto himself and out for a goal-kick

26
Swansea force another corner as Hanley puts it behind. Swansea really dart into life in the final third after patient build-up play

25
Pedersen takes the chance to fire the ball in from a throw but Swansea clear

23
PENALTY SHOUT!!! Sigurdsson is clipped in the box as he stuck a foot out to get on the end of a ball into the box but Pedersen is in the way - there was contact but the way Sigurdsson flung himself to the floor did him no favours for the shout

21
Robinson takes the chance to thump the ball from box-to-box which Vorn comes for and flaps at but is adjudged to have been fouled.

20
Blackburn seem happy to soak up the pressure and hit Swansea on the break

19
CHANCE!!! Sinclair darts into the box on the blind-side of Orr who does well to get a defensive header out for the corner. Blackburn manage to get it clear

17
Yakbu carries it forward and attempts to find Hoilett but Neil Taylor closes it out well. Blackburn need to take more time on the ball - Swansea are much more patient

15
SHOT!!! Sigurdsson is obviously desperate to net his first at the Liberty Stadium working some space on the edge of the box but it sails high and wide

13
Dyer plays a deep ball into the box but it's too long - the Swans are looking good on the right-hand side with Dyer and Rangel causing Blackburn problems

12
CHANCE!! Rangel and Dyer combine well in the box and Hanley is forced into a desperate challenge to close the chance out. The resulting corner is cleared. Swansea are in the indecency

9
Dunn and Williams have a coming together and a bit of afters but Clattenburg keeps the play going

8
Olsson is tripped on the half-way line by an eager Dyer and Blackburn can ping it goal-ward - Hanley meets the ball but it bounces off for a Swans goal-kick

7
Swansea's play is quick and crisp but have yet failed to feed anything meaningful into the front-two

6
Dyer runs at the Blackburn defence and is up-ended but no foul given

5
Swansea are playing it around well but as yet have not breached the Blackburn back-line

Replays for the pen shout show there was contact as Yakubu turned the defender by rolling his body in the 6-yard box but it looks as though Yakbu was falling before the contact

3
PENALTY SHOUT! The ball was played into the box and Yakubu went down but ref Mark Clattenburg waves it away - the ball goes for a corner which Blackburn can clear

2
Blackburn are having a good bit of early play down the wing forcing a few throws and now the second free-kick about 40 yards out

1
Pedersen shapes up to take an early free-kick but loops it high and over the bar

1
The game kicks off as Swansea get us underway

As Brendan Rogers and Steve Kean embrace on the touchline the crowd are in good voice

The players on the pitch and shaking hands ahead of kick-off

Adrian Samuel has got in touch and thinks "It's going to be a tough one, blackburn will have done its homework and the threat of the tank -Yakubu. But the swans will know to close him down and will be eager to get a win and finally get over 40 points. I reckon graham and seggesson involved in goals and 4-1 to the swans.

Lining up for Blackburn: Robinson, Lowe, Dunn, Nzonzi, Dann, Orr, Pederson, Olsson, Hoilett, Hanley, Yakubu Subs: Kean, Rochina, Martin Olsson, Petrovic, Goodwillie, Formica

Our friends at Sky Bet have handed me the live odds with Swansea evens to find their first win in five against a patchy Blackburn side who are 11/4 to win and try and distance themselves from the relegation zone, with the draw 12/5.
