Major Stars Back In Contention For Bolton

Major Stars Back In Contention For Bolton

Matt Derbyshire, Andre Ooijer, Jason Roberts and David Dunn are all expected to be good to go in Wednesdays derby game against Bolton.

For varying reasons and knocks all four were not considered for the trip to Sunderland on Saturday but all are available for the big matches this week.

Bolton at home and Boro away on Saturday are crunch games if we are going to drag ourselves away from the dreaded drop zone.

Having all the bodies available we can is a massive boost.

hope roberts goes straight back in with benni

I am sure he will - why change a winning formula?

I think he will come back, the understanding between Macca and Robbo is amazing, neither player has that understanding with RSC

Agreed Tugay... they are actual real life best friends, and you cant fake that sort of chemistry.

Hope Vince is fit too, anyone know how hes doing? would be great to see dunny and vince in the middle together!!

Now your talking Whitey, looking forward to seeing it myself. I've read the knock he picked up at Sunderland is'nt serious and he is expected to play Wednesday. This has the potential to be a great midfield partnership if we can keep both fit.

Vince has recieved the all clear. I think the last thing we all wanted to see was Vince getting ANOTHER injury. I still think we will see Grella/Dunn for the first time tomorrow.

im excited by the prospect of having those day in the middle of the park, ive got both them on the back of my shirts this season, so lets hope they stay fit and play, and play well at that! C'mon Rovers!

Grella is raring to go lads, however, i really dont no if derby day is the best day to unleash both Grella and Dunny, surely they dont need to be rushed in yet. Bring em in of the bench, start with Andrews and Tugay, see how the game goes. I think Grella and Dunny should be saved for a start on the wkend against Boro. That match wont be as intense in terms of physical demands

Irish Eyes Are Smiling

Blackburn`s game against Doncaster had already been called off. If it hadn`t, it definitely would with the Republic of Ireland`s decision to include two defenders in the final squad.

No Tippy-Tappy Performer

Bradley Dack has proven plenty of ability on the ball and has a keen eye for a goal, but the former Gillingham man has also show he's physically able and willing to get stuck in.

Modest Marksman

You'll not find many who haven't been impressed by Armstrong since he came to Blackburn. The on-loan Newcastle forwards goalscoring exploits speak for themselves.

Different Date Same Outcome

International call ups for Leutwiler, Mulgrew and Evans, along with provisional calls for Lenihan and Williams mean the trip to Doncaster has changed, the hoped outcome wouldn't.
