Duo's fitness fight for Swans test
Blackburn Rovers boss Steve Kean is sweating on the fitness of defenders Bradley Orr and Martin Olsson ahead of their trip to Swansea.
Orr is struggling with an Achilles problem while Olsson has complained of tightness in his groin but Kean is optimistic both will respond to treatment to play their part against the Swans. The Rovers boss told reporters: "We need everybody to be fit and I think it showed against Liverpool the other evening when we brought on Jason Lowe and Ruben Rochina that everybody is required to be fit and well and it is good that most people are available." Striker Anthony Modeste will definitely be available after seeing his three-match ban for a red card against West Brom reduced to one match, which he served during Tuesday's defeat by Liverpool, although a place on the bench is the most he can expect. Kean is certainly pleased those to have him at his disposal again to increase his selection options at a critical junction in Rovers' season. He added: "Once the panel looked at it they could see that Anthony lost his head a little bit but could see at the last minute that he's controlled himself and there was, if anything, very little contact on the player. "So we've managed to get that reduced from three to one game and he's now served it and we are delighted to have him available and in the squad for Saturday." Kean will name his team from the following squad of players: Robinson, Orr, Dann, Hanley, Martin Olsson, Formica, Nzonzi, Dunn, Marcus Olsson, Hoilett, Yakubu, Kean, Givet, Modeste, Pedersen, Petrovic, Rochina, Goodwillie, Vukcevic, Lowe, Henley.
