Rovers boss Gary Bowyer will include Jordan Rhodes in his squad despite the striker withdrawing from the Scotland squad at the start of the week due to a broken hand.

In form Rhodes has scored four times in his last two outings however, after having the cast fitted, he has been declared him fit for the clash at Turf Moor.

Definitely out however are DJ Campbell (ankle), Paul Robinson (back), Dickson Etuhu (knee) and Ruben Rochina (shoulder).

Burnley meanwhile could hand a debut to new signing Michael Kightly. The Stoke midfielder joined the Clarets on loan on deadline day and could replace Keith Tracey in the line up.

Manager Sean Dyche has a virtually full squad to call upon, with the only absentee injured midfielder Ross Wallace, as he looks to guild Burnley to their first win over Rovers in 34 years.

Given their rivalry, the game promises to be a tense affair and both clubs have calls on fans to behave. Trouble has flared in the past – dozens of fans were arrested when Blackburn won at Turf Moor in the Premier League in March 2010 and ahead of this weekend’s Championship meeting both clubs have promised a “zero tolerance” reaction to any disorder.

The joint-statement read: “We encourage all supporters attending this game to respect each other and the authorities.

“An East Lancashire derby between our two historic clubs is always a special occasion and we hope Saturday’s Championship game will be remembered for the action on the pitch and the positive backing of both sets of supporters.

“We acknowledge that there will be some disruption to the normal matchday schedule.

“However, this has been done with the safety of all supporters in mind and all fans should be aware that breaches of stadium regulations – including anti social behaviour – will not be tolerated.

“Burnley and Blackburn Rovers also have a zero tolerance for discrimination of any sort, on the pitch or in the stands.

“If you experience any form of discrimination before, during or after the game, or require assistance in any matter, please contact a matchday steward. We look forward to welcoming you to Turf Moor.”

This one gets underway at 12:15 GMT.
