Three welcomed back for crunch clash

Three welcomed back for crunch clash

For once in the injury department it is good news for Rovers with THREE familiar faces returning from injury.

Chris Samba, Martin Olsson and Michel Salgado all return to action at a time when Rovers need them most.

The game does come too soon for Ryan Nelsen however who has been deemed a big risk if he does take part so he will be missing once again.

Junior Hoilett is also a doubt with a virus and he will need a check tomorrow morning to assess his suitability to the cause.

Steve N'Zonzi serves the second game in a three game suspension but other than that everyone else is present and correct!

Rovers to choose from - Robinson, Bunn, Lowe, Salgado, Samba, Dann, Givet, Hanley, Olsson, Henley, Dunn, Pedersen, Petrovic, Rochina, Formica, Hoilett, Vukcevic, Goodwillie, Roberts, Yakubu, Formica.

Great to have them back our defence has been a shambles the last few games!

Samba is a HUGE boost to our defense. Olsson is a big boost at both ends! Disappointing if Hoilett is out, we need him 100% fit 100% of the time!

TBH it wouldn't be a disappointment to me if Hoilett was out as he has looked poor the last 3 games...

I know what you mean but its the fact he's one of the few we have (maybe only rochina included with him) that can pull out that 1 moment of magic even when having a poor match.

Much rather see Rochina upfront with Goodwillie tbh, or Rochina as the solo forward like he does for the spanish u21's.

If only I knew what you wrote tubzz I'd know if I agreed or not! Could you please explain (in english this time) what this means: "be honest yea dont even no wat blackburn is" If you disagree with fran I must say I agree with him. Even when Junior is having an off day he is still capable of winning the game.

Championship Cost Per Goal So Far In 2016/17

The end of the Championship campaign of 2016/17 is only a month and a bit away from fans across the country but as we go in to the remaining weeks of the campaign...

Positive Signs For Bennett

Bennett was positive of Blackburn being able to see off Lancashire rivals Preston heading into this game at Ewood Park after the Norwich and Fulham results.

Minor Graham Setback

Blackburn had to do without Danny Graham against Preston following the groin problem that forced him off against Fulham last week. He could return against Brighton next week.

Hugely Frustrating

Mowbray admitted Blackburn didn't start the game well against Preston but had then been the dominant side so was 'majorly disappointed' not to record a victory.
