Olsson in line for Rovers return

Wide man Martin Olsson could return to the Blackburn starting XI for Monday’s Barclays Premier League clash with Wigan at Ewood Park.

Olsson has been on the bench for Rovers’ last three games due to a niggling groin complaint but manager Steve Kean says the problem has settled down, while Bradley Orr (Achilles) will be assessed ahead of kick-off and fellow defender Grant Hanley (knee) remains sidelined.

Kean has confirmed striker David Goodwillie, who was given a community service order earlier this week for assaulting a man in Glasgow, will be part of the squad.

Provisional squad: Robinson, Orr, Dann, Martin Olsson, Lowe, Nzonzi, Pedersen, Hoilett, Dunn, Yakubu, Bunn, Givet, Formica, Petrovic, Rochina, Marcus Olsson, Goodwillie, Vukcevic, Henley, Modeste.
