Blackburn Rovers v Swansea City: Match preview


Blackburn Rovers v Swansea City

Barclays Premier League

Ewood Park

Saturday, December 3. Kick-off: 1500


Christopher Samba, Martin Olsson and Michel Salgado are all expected to return for Blackburn after recent hamstring injuries.

Steven Nzonzi will serve the second game of a three-match ban.

Swansea defender Angel Rangel is out with ankle ligament damage, so Jazz Richards will replace him.

Danny Graham is struggling to be fit in time, having sustained Achilles damage against Aston Villa last weekend.


Kean has owner back


Blackburn manager Steve Kean insists he has the full support of owners Venky's, despite Rovers' poor start to the season.

Kean's side currently sit bottom of the Barclays Premier League, with only seven points from their opening 13 fixtures this season.

This has led to Blackburn fans to call for the head of the inexperienced boss, but the club's owners continue to support him.

And Kean says that still remains the case.

"Yes, 100%," he stated. "That has never ebbed or quivered one day."

Kean also expects to be able to reinforce his squad in January, in the hope of transforming fortunes at Ewood Park.

"I had a very good meeting at the stadium with one of the directors," he added.

"We have got a board meeting on Monday to speak about the transfer window.

"The owners are obviously concerned at the position we are in but I think they also understand that the selection process will now be tougher for myself because of the amount of players who are coming back."
