This game could easily turn out to be the epitome of kicking the injured kitten while it’s licking it’s wounds.
I feel for Steve Kean, he really doesn’t seem to be blessed with any kind of luck. Hopefully though the bit they got against Liverpool at the weekend means they’ve used it up for now.
I can see a spirited fight from Blackburn and a bit of an edgy contest, especially as SAF has had the fixture put forward so the team can get showered and pick up his prezzies and that in time for his Birthday party in the evening.
Fingers crossed on the fitness of Smalling and Jill.
Goals: Rooney blockbustin brace.
