Blackburn will not rush into any action before deciding on possible sanctions against supporters involved in violence which prompted the cancellation of Sunday's friendly against NEC Nijmegen.

Police called the contest off after intelligence emerged via social networking sites suggesting there would be a repeat of unsavoury scenes involving Rovers fans in Holland. There were clashes in Deventer on Friday night after Steve Kean's men went down 4-2 to Go Ahead Eagles and incidents with Blackburn and NEC followers occurred in Nijmegen on Saturday.

Rovers' operations director Paul Agnew said: "We always take advice off the police and authorities, who have a much better handle on these things and report back to us. We've never put the blinkers on for this sort of thing. If something official came back then obviously we would act accordingly."
