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

Three doubtful, one suspended, rest good to go

Rovers are sweating on the fitness of a few players ahead of the visit of Blackpool and their tangerine army on Saturday.

David Dunn, Vince Grella (naturally) and Keith Andrews are all rated as doubtful and Gael Givet is serving the first match in a two match ban after his post match sending off against Fulham.

But Mauro Formica is clear to play after his set back before the last match and Ryan Nelsen has returned home safe and sound after his visit to New Zealand.

Givet's absence should mean a reverting to left back of Martin Olsson and Morten Gamst Pedersen's return to the left hand side.

Elsewhere Rovers are in complete health and the only mystery that remains is the level of involvement of young Phil Jones.

He could start, he could miss out, but the smart money is on an appearance on the bench.

Either way, let's get behind the lads tomorrow afternoon.

Really looking forward to this one but bricking it at the same time :D. Crunch time! May we finally see Formica?!

MASSIVE GAME!! must get the points. I hope Kean isn't silly enough to have one up front for this one. Gonna be end to end for sure so we need the right men up there to score the goals.
