Blackburn will be without suspended on-loan striker Anthony Modeste.

The Bordeaux player will have to serve a three-match ban after his red card for violent conduct during Saturday’s 3-0 away defeat against West Brom, Rovers’ third straight loss.

Blackburn boss Steve Kean will check on the fitness of defender Martin Olsson, who suffered a shoulder injury at The Hawthorns, although he was able to complete the game.

Liverpool centre-back Daniel Agger is pushing for a return to the starting line-up having made his comeback after a six week lay-off.

The Denmark international returned as a substitute in Saturday’s draw against Aston Villa after a cracked rib and will be hoping to get back into the team ahead of the weekend’s FA Cup semi-final against Everton.

Striker Andy Carroll could be set for a recall after three substitute appearance in four matches.
