Benjani set for debut

Blackburn boss Sam Allardyce could give a debut to former Manchester City striker Benjani Mwaruwari in tomorrow's Premier League clash at Eastlands.

The Zimbabwean was released by City at the end of last season but earned a one-year contract at Rovers after training with the squad over the summer.

Keith Andrews (groin) remains sidelined while Martin Olsson is a doubt with a shoulder problem but striker Jason Roberts returns to the squad after resolving his differences with Allardyce.

Team (from): Robinson, Bunn, Olsson, Samba, Givet, Nelsen, Salgado, Jones, Pedersen, Nzonzi, Kalinic, E-H Diouf, M B Diouf, Emerton, Hoilett, Chimbonda, Grella, Dunn, Benjani, Roberts, Linganzi.
