Blackburn 3-1 Norwich

Blackburn 3-1 Norwich

Blackburn   3 - 1   Norwich

Mame Biram Diouf marked his first start for Blackburn with a hat-trick as the Premier League side eased past Norwich to reach the Carling Cup third round.

The Senegal international, on a season-long loan from Manchester United, headed in after Chris Samba flicked on Morten Gamst Pedersen's long throw.

Blackburn keeper Mark Bunn saved well from Simeon Jackson and Grant Holt before Diouf, 22, tapped in his second.

Diouf nodded in a third before Jens Berthel Askou headed a consolation.

Rovers boss Sam Allardyce introduced Diouf from the bench during his side's first two league matches but picked the visit of Norwich to give the striker a first start - and he did not disappoint.

Diouf, who made six appearances for United last season and also sat on the bench for their Carling Cup final win over Aston Villa, was heavily involved throughout.

He opened the scoring at Ewood Park with a typical poacher's goal, stooping to convert Samba's flick after Pedersen's arcing throw into the box.

Just before half-time Jackson saw his low shot tipped around the post post by Bunn and shortly after the break Holt had shot fumbled by the keeper.

Blackburn were dominating possession but Norwich remained a threat, Holt flashing a near-post header across goal from David Fox's corner and Bunn producing a reaction save to keep the ball out.

606: DEBATE

Amine Linganzi almost extended the home side's lead when he volleyed against the post and seconds later Diouf planted a close-range header against the crossbar from Pedersen's left-wing free-kick.

But when Pedersen's shot from Junior Hoilett's cross was spooned up in the air by keeper Declan Rudd, Diouf stabbed home despite the best efforts of the Norwich defence to prevent it crossing the line.

And Diouf capped a fine individual performance with a five-yard header from another Pedersen cross late on.

Berthal Askou's 90th-minute header from a corner was was in vain for the visitors.
