'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Two back, two doubtful for Villa away

Roque Santa Cruz and Gael Givet are back and ready to rock and roll for the trip to Aston Villa.

Rovers boss Steve Kean takes his side to Villa Park on the back of three winless games but the recovery of Givet should mean a more advanced role for Martin Olsson.

Roque Santa Cruz should also be back in the starting line up after a scare against Newcastle and Rovers have the advantage of five fit strikers to choose from.

However it is not all sunshine and roses with the news that both Chris Samba and Junior Hoilett are rated as doubtful after knocks sustained in recent weeks.

I really hope Samba and Hoilett can both make it as they are key!!!

Right, I'm going to have to say it. All those Rovers fans saying we should give Kean time are wrong. This is atrocious. One draw in five games and four defeats, conceding four in each of our last two away games. Absolutely shocking. You'd have thought we were playing United, Arsenal, City, Spurs and Chelsea, instead just one of those as we get brushed aside by another average team. Kean does not have a clue and all this talk of top ten finishes is now premature, naive and immature. We are sinking!

Wow thought you would have gave us a game, thanks for making it easy for us.
