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

The team news is in

It's all gravy ahead of Sunday's survival showdown at Molineux with news reaching us that three key players have been passed totally fit.

Chris Samba, Junior Hoilett and Jermaine Jones have all been given a clean bill of health prior to the crunch match after all managed some to all of training this week.

The 3 had picked up varying niggles last time out against Manchester United and there were fears that Rovers would be hampered with the loss of essential ingredients.

Manager Steve Kean told the Lancashire Telegraph - 'It is a huge boost. These players have been match winners for us in recent months.

'We are very confident. The whole place has felt positive (he likes that word doesn't he?!) and we are relishing the game.'

Great news we're going to need them... Not too sure i totally agree with the "Match winners" part though. More like 'would've been beaten in just about every game if they weren't playing' . lol

That's brilliant. I would've hated for us to go to Wolves without those three, Samba especially.
