Burnley boss Brian Laws named an unchanged line-up to face Blackburn today in the first top-flight derby between the two sides at Turf Moor since the 1965-66 season.

Opposite number Sam Allardyce made two adjustments to the side which had defeated Birmingham on Wednesday, with Jason Roberts and Gael Givet coming in for Nikola Kalinic and Keith Andrews.

It meant that Blackburn-born David Dunn – who scored twice before limping off in the win over Birmingham in midweek – was fit to face Rovers’ fierce Lancashire rivals.

Burnley: Jensen, Mears, Duff, Cort, Jordan, Alexander, Elliott, McDonald, Paterson, Steven Fletcher, Nugent.

Subs: Weaver, Carlisle, Blake, Thompson, Eagles, Fox, Cork.

Blackburn: Brown, Salgado, Jones, Samba, Givet, Dunn, Nzonzi, Olsson, Diouf, Roberts, Pedersen.

Subs: Bunn, Emerton, Grella, Kalinic, Hoilett, Di Santo, Chimbonda.

Referee: Mike Dean (Wirral)
