Questions on today's opponents.

60’s. This all round sportsman kept goal for us against Blackburn in a 1-1 draw at Ninian Park in December 1961 and then again when the teams next met in September 1966 (we lost 4-1 at Ewood Park) – who am I talking about?


70’s. This international footballer scored us against at Ewood Park in 1977 and passed away eighteen years later, can you name him?


80’s. The man photographed below was Blackburn manager when we beat them 3-2 in November 1980, do you recognise him?



90’s. There were two players who were with Blackburn in 1994/95 (the season they won the Premiership) who went on to play for Cardiff City – one of them left Ewood Park without playing a first team game, but the other made five first team appearances that year, can you name both of them?


00’s. We only played Blackburn in a Third Round FA Cup tie in 04/05 during this decade, Blackburn won 3-2, after an earlier 1-1 draw at Ninian Park, but who the player who later signed for us who was an unused sub for Rovers in both games?


10’s. The Blackburn bench for City’s 4-1 win earlier in the season included an unused sub who played twice in competitive internationals against Wales in the past five years, name the player and which country does he play for?
