Home » EPL, Latest » Match Preview: Blackburn vs Sunderland

Blackburn manager Steve Kean has virtually a fully-fit squad for the game.

Defender Bradley Orr missed the win at Wolves last time out with a hamstring problem but has returned to training and played in a practice match last week.

Midfielder David Dunn has recovered from an Achilles injury so only Vince Grella is unavailable.

Sunderland full-back Phil Bardsley is fighting to be fit.

The former Manchester United defender is battling to shake off a rib injury to retain his place in the team, although left-back Kieran Richardson has been ruled out with the calf problem which kept him out of Saturday’s FA Cup quarter-final draw at Everton.

Striker Stephane Sessegnon completes his three-match ban and will be available for Saturday’s league clash with QPR, a game midfielder Lee Cattermole will sit out as he serves the last instalment of his four-match suspension, and defenders Wes Brown (knee) and Titus Bramble (Achilles/calf) remain on the sidelines.

Blackburn (from): Robinson, Orr, Dann, Givet, Hanley, Lowe, Martin Olsson, Pedersen, Petrovic, Nzonzi, Hoilett, Dunn, Yakubu, Formica, Modeste, Goodwillie, Marcus Olsson, Rochina, Vukcevic, Henley, Blackman, Bunn.

Sunderland (from): Mignolet, Gordon, Bardsley, Bridge, O’Shea, Turner, Kilgallon, Kyrgiakos, Lynch, Gardner, Larsson, Elmohamady, McClean, Vaughan, Meyler, Colback, Bendtner, Wickham, Ji, Campbell.
