Kick Off: 3:00

Rovers travel to fellow strugglers Wolves this weekend as both teams look to avoid the drop. The two teams are separated by goal difference as they both hover around the relegation zone.

Blackburn will be hoping to build on last week’s point, whereas Wolves will be hoping to vanish the memories of their 5-0 drubbing away at Fulham.

Terry Connor will take charge of his first home game and will be hoping for his first win in front the Wolves faithful. Rovers have sold out on their ticket allocation as the game looks set to lend its self to the old 6 pointer cliché.

Steve Kean has no new injury concerns and welcomes back Gael Givet and Jason Lowe for the relegation clash.

David Dunn will be pushing for a starting place after his explosive second half display last week.

As for Wolves, captain Roger Johnson looks set to play despite turning up to training intoxicated during the week, which resulted in the club fining the defender. Dave Edwards and Sebastian Bassong look set to return from injury, but Karl Henry will miss the game due to a hamstring injury.

With Wolves conceding 12 goals in their last three games and Rovers yet to record a clean-sheet all season this clash seems certain to be a goal-fest.


  • Rovers have lost just one of the last nine meetings at the Molineux.
  • Wolves recorded their first win in 11 years over Rovers on the opening day of the season.
