Manuel Pellegrini’s men were held by the Championship side at Ewood Park, with their goalkeeper making a blunder for the hosts’ goal.
The Etihad Stadium outfit were widely expected to walk all over Championship side Blackburn at Ewood Park, but ended up drawing 1-1 against the Lancashire side.
Despite Alvaro Negredo opening the scoring for the Premier League visitors, Scott Dann equalised in the second half.
Romanian goalkeeper Costel Pantilimon will not enjoy watching this back, as the stopper makes a terrible error to allow Blackburn to score.
With City boss Pellegrini not overly convinced with Joe Hart this season, Pantilimon’s error will be another cause for concern.
Joleon Lescott did not cover himself in glory either after losing his marker, and City will now need to face Blackburn again in a replay on home soil.
