Nonda then missed the target with a header midway through the first half before Feyenoord's Angelos Charisteas found his way through the English defence but Brad Friedel saved.

Minutes before the interval the home side had their best chance when Nick Hofs' shot was blocked by Robbie Savage.

Blackburn are top with seven points from three matches, three above AS Nancy following their 2-2 draw at Basel.
