EPL Preview-Blackburn Rovers vs Stoke City

Blackburn Rovers continue their fight against relegation when they host Stoke City at Ewood Park.

Blackburn currently occupy the relegation zone, and are three points adrift of safety after beating Manchester United 3-2 last time out. Rovers manager Steve Kean hopes a victory here may alleviate some of the pressure they feel from the fans Ewood Park.

Stoke are currently eighth in the Premier League table, and will enter this game looking to end a winless streak to three games.

Gael Givet could return to the Blackburn defense after recently undergoing heart surgery, while Junior Hoilett, David Dunn and Martin Olsson are all injury doubts.

Main goal scorer Yakubu will attack Blackburn, and the powerful Nigerian striker has yielded seven goals in his last six Sport games .

Defender Andy Wilkinson is an injury doubt for Stoke and will be assessed before kick-off. Striker Cameron Jerome should continue in attack after scoring his first goal for the club during last weekend’s 2-2 draw with Wigan Athletic.
