Beleaguered Blackburn manager Steve Kean is due to face the media - a day after learning his own deputy chief executive apparently wanted him removed.

Kean has faced calls for his sacking from supporters angered by poor performances all season but in a leaked letter obtained by Sporting Intelligence, it emerged deputy chief executive Paul Hunt had written to owners Venky's after a damaging loss to Bolton last December suggesting Kean's tenure be cut short.

Hunt wrote: "Publicly I have been asked to support the manager and I always have as I personally like Steve. I have supported him from the start and have been desperate for him to do well. However, I am now of the opinion that it isn't working and he is ready to go."
