A major new protest is to be staged by Blackburn fans against the club's hierarchy ahead of Saturday's Barclays Premier League home match against Aston Villa, it has been announced.

A section of Rovers supporters called BRFC Action Group have released a statement outlining plans for three marches that will set off simultaneously around an hour before the 3pm kick-off and then join together at Ewood Park - described as "the largest and most attended demonstration in the history of our club."

Throughout the season - during which the team have struggled near the bottom of the league table - Blackburn's owners, Indian-based poultry and pharmaceutical firm Venky's, have been the target of protests and manager Steve Kean has endured calls for him to be sacked.
