Blackburn manager Steve Kean would agree to postpone next weekend's match at Bolton if Wanderers feel they are not ready to play after Fabrice Muamba suffered a cardiac arrest during the FA Cup quarter-final at Tottenham on Saturday night.

The Trotters midfielder is in a critical condition in the London Chest Hospital after collapsing on the pitch. Bolton's Barclays Premier League match at Aston Villa on Tuesday has already been postponed and Kean said Rovers would be guided by their Lancashire rivals in terms of Saturday's game at the Reebok Stadium.

Kean said: "I think the whole footballing world has come together. Whatever we have to do we would only respect what Bolton want us to do next weekend."
